The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has told the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Nigeria Police to stop fighting a lost battle, saying nothing can stop the imminent mass defection from the APC to the PDP across the country.
The party was reacting to Saturday’s encounter between the Ondo Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi and Commissioner of Police, Bolaji Salami.
In a statement on Sunday by the spokesman for the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party said the altercation between the police chief and deputy governor has further spurred Nigerians in their irrevocable determination to abandon the APC and move into the PDP.
“The thoughtless and rude attempt to use the Police to stop the Ondo Deputy Governor from leaving the disorganised APC is symptomatic of the last kicks of a degraded and derelict political party that is now clutching at straws and can only resort to use of compromised security agents as face-saving measure,” the PDP said.
The main opposition party said the ruling APC is unnerved because Nigerians are no longer ready to stomach the deception and lies of 2015 as well as the impunity, political brigandage and the electoral fraud of 2019.
It said: “This is because the situation in the country in the last five years has left no one in doubt that the APC is an ill wind; a soulless mob; a decrepit ship of insatiate pirates, political vampires and ravenous power mongers, who thrive in lies, deception and treasury looting; and whose only legacies are economic ruins, institution of poverty, escalated insecurity, confusion, divisiveness, humongous corruption, dissipated reserves and accumulated debts.
