The All Progressives Congress (APC) said Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) under national chairman, Uche Secondus is crumbling, stressing that elections under President Muhammadu Buhari are free and fair.
Secondus, on Saturday described as unfortunate a statement credited to President Buhari that he could have used the military to undermine the integrity of the electoral process during the 2019 general election.
Reacting to the claim of national chairman of that the 2019 general election was rigged, deputy spokesman of the ruling party, Yekini Nabena, in a statement on Monday, asked the opposition leader to focus on his party “which has become shockingly rudderless under his watch.
“Under Secondus, the PDP has never had it this bad with the opposition Party’s stakeholders detached from the party activities as was witnessed with notable PDP leaders boycotting the Party’s 2019 presidential campaigns and the recent Bayelsa State Governorship bribe-for-ticket scandal that indicted Secondus,”
“Little wonder, the recent months have witnessed many PDP members resign their membership due to Secondus activities which has brought the PDP to its knees.
“The PDP under Secondus is in willful denial of the obvious that under the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration, free, fair and credible elections is the new normal.
“Voting power is fast returning to the people and the era of stolen and procured votes is fast-fading. We reiterate that President Buhari’s declaration that the APC could have used the military and other security services to overrun opposition states in the 2019 general election but chose free, fair elections is a solid pointer and demonstration of our proven democratic and progressive credentials.”
Nabena urged “progressive partisans particularly in the PDP” not to sink with the opposition party which has become “disillusioned” under Secondus.
