The All Progressives Congress on Friday said that the ill-health of President Muhammadu Buhari was not a stepping stone for the Peoples Democratic Party to use in returning to power in 2019. This was made known in a statement that was released by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi which was titled: “Re: ‘PDP Unveils Plans To Sack APC”.
The APC also criticized what it described as PDP’s brand of opposition politics which mostly comprised of allegations and open incitement of separatist agitations nationwide.
The statement also expressed delight because the PDP was now insisting on holding the APC accountable, using the opportunity to ask the opposition PDP to adopt the counsel of the former Akwa Ibom State governor, Obong Victor Attah, in which he suggested that the PDP needed an urgent change of name as the current brand was damaged beyond repair.
The party also insisted that there was no basis for comparison between the present Buhari led administration and the last 16 years of the PDP at the country’s helm of affairs.
“We need to point out however that APC is the new wife that is busy working at the kitchen that has been looted empty by the former wife who had made away with the entire foodstuffs and even the kitchen utensils. Nigerians know this. If the food is a little late in coming, they understand the circumstance.
“But if that other thieving wife now begins to argue that she was a better cook and should be brought back into the kitchen because the new wife is a slow cook, then that should pass for hypocrisy.
“No matter the temporary hardship that we may be experiencing, Nigerians know better than to bring PDP back to power so soon for fear that this time, they might disappear with the kitchen itself.
“We also note with regret, PDP’s penchant for mocking Buhari with his health situation. We admit that the health of a president is every citizen’s business, however, it is un-African, if not ungodly, to continue to taunt a man and even challenge him to a fight at his moment of weakness.
“We have seen in the last few days, some members of the PDP who have boasted to defeat President Buhari in 2019. We urge Nigerians to Google the names of these individuals and see what comes up. It is, however, understandable, even if not acceptable, that when the lion is enfeebled, even a rabbit would grow the temerity to tweak its tail,” APC said.
