The All Progressives Congress (APC) has told the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to look in the mirror to discover the source of the ‘misfortunes’, ‘in-fighting’ and ‘implosion’ that has been rocking it of late.
The APC National Secretary, Mai Mala Buni, who gave the advice yesterday, was reacting to a statement credited to his PDP counterpart, Adewale Oladipo, who said that some party members were being “used by the APC to draw political capital from the present challenges facing it (PDP)”.
The governing party said it was marveled that PDP had continued to blame everyone but itself for ‘its self-inflicted problems’ which, it added, led the party to ‘the sorry state’ it currently finds itself.
Mr. Buni said: “The PDP now sounds like a broken record with its daily conspiracy theories blaming external forces and unseen hands for its electoral misfortunes, in-fighting and mind-boggling corruption charges and ongoing probe of some PDP leaders and the immediate-past PDP-led administration.
“The question begging for answers is: Why does the PDP choose to grope in the dark while reality stares it in the face? Did the PDP not know that it will one day pay for the impunity, recklessness and shocking mis-management of the country’s common wealth perpetuated under its watch for 16 years?
“For the record, the APC has no hand in the in-fighting and resultant implosion being witnessed in PDP’s hierarchy. Perhaps the wind of change has blown through the PDP camp and many PDP members realise the need to embrace and enforce change.
“The APC reiterates that PDP members who are genuinely inspired by the APC-led administration are welcome to the APC fold. It is their right to abandon a sinking ship and join one that is smooth-sailing”.
