The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that the opposition coalition will soon realize that they are merely chasing shadows through the formation of the yet to be registered All Progressive Congress (APC).
The PDP said this yesterday on the heels agains of reports that some of its state governors were on the verge of joining the APC.
The PDP while stressing its acceptance by majority of Nigerians said the party will win more states in the 2015 elections in spite of the APC.
Dismissing the reports as false, PDP National Publicity Secretary, Mr Olisa Metuh said all its governors are working with the party leadership and the President, adding that there is no cause for any one of them to contemplate leaving the ruling party for the APC that is yet to have an operable structure.
Metuh said the fact that the PDP took the high moral ground of decency to congratulate the opposition on the formation of the APC does not cover the new party’s inadequacies and its destiny to fall apart in no time.
