We never appointed you consultants – PDP mocks APC
The Peoples Democratic Party has reacted to the All Progressives Congress (APC)’s claims that it (PDP) cannot pay its staff and has been laying them off.
In a reaction signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP said it was merely going through a restructuring of its operations.
The main opposition party said that by dabbling into its internal affairs, the APC-led government was trying to divert attention from its “wicked” increase in fuel pump price to N170.
It further said that the ruling party was “seeking to divert attention from its failures and reported involvement of very top officials of its government in looting spree, by engaging in smear campaign, distortions and wild goose chase on issues that are internal to the PDP.”
The PDP said it did not recall appointing APC as consultants, urging the party to focus instead on how to tackle its alleged rejection by Nigerians.

“The APC is also desperate to divert attention from its wicked increase in the pump price of fuel to N170 per liter, the indicting revelations from the EndSARS enquiry panels as well as Saturday’s abduction of children in Zaria, Kaduna state by gunmen, who had scaled up attack on Nigerians while the APC has abandoned governance to seek consultancy job in other political parties.
“By launching this childish smear campaign against our party, the APC has exposed its mortal fear over the reorganized PDP, being dazed by our vibrant opposition as well as relentless exposing of its failures and complicity of its leaders in humongous corruption in high places.
“The APC is discomfited by our repositioning as the rallying platform of Nigerians from all divides in their collective quest to rescue our nation from APC-imposed hardship, violence, bloodletting, decayed infrastructure and mortgaging of our nation to foreign interest,” the party stated.
The statement further read, “We are however not surprised that the APC, which recently admitted to be a party of “bandits”, whose leaders are like “criminal bandits ravaging our communities, towns and villages”, will reduced itself to a confused busybody, having been overwhelmed by the burden of failure and repulsion of Nigerians to their wicked and exploitative policies.
“Since the APC has become so overwhelmed by governance that it now seeks for a job in our party, we counsel them to apply formally as consultants instead of seeking to distract us from our focus of giving direction to our country at this critical time.
“In any case, we want the APC to know that the PDP will never be distracted from focusing on our processes in galvanizing Nigerians for the task ahead.
“Moreover, we urge the embattled APC National Caretaker Committee Chairman, Governor Mai Mala Buni, to address the crisis in his party and stop sending impostors and charlatans, as spokespersons, to constitute public nuisance by dabbling into issues they have no knowledge about.”
PDP said that the APC has become a sinking pirate ship and should blame itself for its alleged woes and imminent collapse.
