The presidential campaign council of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has asked the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to rescue itself before thinking about Nigeria.
The APC presidential campaign council stated this on Saturday in a statement signed by Festus Keyamo, its spokesperson.
Recall that on Friday, the PDP presidential campaign council pointed out that APC is neither ready for election nor governance.
“As the campaign season has set in, Nigerians must be discerning; to critically examine the conduct and character of the people and parties that seek to lead our great country as from May 29, 2023. However, It is becoming increasingly apparent that the APC is neither ready for election nor structured to govern, though its members are desperate to retain power,” Dino Melaye, spokesperson of the campaign council, had said.
Responding to Melaye’s comment, Keyamo said recent allegations show that the party “remains a clear and present danger or threat to Nigeria’s treasury and equity”.

“Every week, we are treated to a new revelation about the PDP crisis and its profligate and thieving nature.
“A leopard can hardly change its spot, which means that the PDP is not repentant of its old ways. Certainly, Nigerians are not ready to be deceived again by these comic characters.
“We can all vividly recall the famous Dasukigate where money allocated for national security was shared among party chieftains whilst Boko Haram was ravaging the country.
“We are yet to recover from that trauma, and the PDP is showing us that their patented technology for sharing sleazy funds is alive.
“It appears all their pipelines for siphoning and redistributing public funds are still very much intact and are, in fact, steaming to return to full operation.
“On our part, our party has shown its commitment to be fair to all regions in the country. Whilst the PDP was breaching its own constitution on power rotation and fairness, the APC governors rose above primordial sentiments and rejected a move to Zone the APC presidential ticket to the north, insisting that power must shift to the South after President Muhammadu Buhari’s tenure.
“We advise the PDP to desist from its hallucinations and concentrate on rescuing itself before even thinking of ‘rescuing’ Nigeria.”
