National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi has reacted against the emergence of some PDP candidates at its just concluded convention,saying it is unfortunate that PDP has decided to punish the South-West for not voting for the Party in 2015.
In a statement he made available to NEWSBREAK on Sunday, he said “I disparage how money-for-votes and systematic rigging was brazenly perpetuated during the National Convention of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). The All Progressives Congress (APC) is mindful of the popular axiom: “A leopard cannot change its spot”.
In his words: “The abnormalities that trailed the PDP National Convention have further exposed the PDP as a Party not ready and willing to change. Indeed, the PDP has once again displayed itself to the generality of Nigerians that it is a Party with corruption deeply rooted in its DNA.”
He added that “it is tragic that the PDP which used to pride itself as “the biggest political Party in Africa” has now been reduced to a regional party by frustrating South West Chairmanship candidates”.
He therefore urged members of the PDP that can pass the integrity test to join the APC “so that we can together bring about the much-needed Change the country deserves.”
