- The Peoples Democratic Party has bashed the publicity secretary of the All Progressive Congress, Joe Igbokwe, over statements made by the latter against the opposition party
- The PDP stated that Igbokwe was simply hallucinating and required serious medical attention if he thought the APC would be given another mandate to lead the country in 2019
- According to the opposition party, the Nigerian electorate was wiser now, and knew that any vote for the APC would be a vote for hunger, poverty, indebtedness, insecurity and anti-democratic tendencies
Joe Igbokwe, the publicity secretary of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Lagos chapter, has been bashed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), over a recent statement he made against the opposition party.
The PDP was responding to Igbokwe’s statement that Nigerians can no longer trust the opposition party with their votes.
NAIJ.com gathers that the opposition party made its comments in a statement signed by Dayo Adeyeye, its national publicity secretary.
He stated: "Mr. Igbokwe is simply hallucinating and requires serious medical attention to think that Nigerians will vote the APC into power again with all-round failures of the party in government at all levels.
“Mr. Igbokwe’s statement is a clear display of unpatriotism, selfishness, desperation and a clear indication of how far the APC leaders and supporters are willing to go, to further plunge the country beyond the present decay.
“The rhetoric of the likes of Igbokwe that those complaining of maladministration and ineptitude of the APC Government were partakers of the so called ‘looting and corruption’ further buttresses our earlier assertion that this APC administration has an express agenda to disorganize the country, promote sectionalism, cause chaos and then blame it on opposition parties; especially the PDP.
“In view of the above and more, we therefore warn Mr Igbokwe and his anti-PDP collaborators in the APC to keep quiet henceforth, since it appears they have nothing else to say to launder the broken and dilapidated Image of their party, the APC.
“Nigerians are not stupid, and will never make the same mistake of voting the APC in 2019 or any other elections in future.
“Finally, the oneness and unity of this country lies in the hands of the electorate and how they will cast their votes in the 2019 elections.
“For emphasis, we believe that the electorate is more informed now, and they know that any vote for the APC in 2019 will be a vote to further promote extreme hunger/starvation, poverty, indebtedness, insecurity, anti-democratic tendencies.”
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously reported that the ruling All Progressives Congress declared that the Peoples Democratic Party is dead in Nigeria and no longer efficient.
The statement was made in an interview session, by Igbokwe, who is the publicity secretary of the APC Lagos chapter.
