The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has extending invitation to the members of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to come and join the APC.
The APC in a press statement issued on Tuesday by its National Secretary, Mai Mala Buni said it is the right of the PDP members who are genuinely inspired by the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari to abandon the PDP sinking Ship.
The statement stated that “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.
The APC however, said that its baffles her how the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) continues to blame everyone but itself for its self-inflicted problems which has led to the sorry state the PDP finds itself.
“In monitored media reports, PDP’s National Secretary, Wale Oladipo was quoted saying that some PDP members were being “used by the APC, to draw political capital from the present challenges facing our party [PDP].” What could be funnier than such silly and unfounded allegation?
“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?
The statement added that “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.
