The All Progressives Congress (APC) has reacted to call by Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus on both the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Yakubu Mahmoud and the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Idris Ibrahim to resign.
Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, National Publicity Secretary, in a statement on Sunday said “it is a pity that the once boisterous PDP, having undermined the country for 16 years through mindless undemocratic actions, has now become a caricature of a political party”.
According to him, the latest outburst was another reminder of how the PDP government serially abused state institutions in the pursuit of selfish political and economic interests.
“PDP is now being haunted by its sordid past and the ruinous party is now scampering from its own shadow”, the statement added.
“It is sad that the PDP hounds have continued to take Nigerians for granted, thinking by embarking on scaremongering, the voters could forget their wanton crimes.
“Nigerians are not gullible, it is now apparent that the PDP in a bid to hide their inadequacies and undesirability as elections approaches has chosen to populate the public space with unfounded allegations.
“The All Progressives Congress (APC) continues to stand for and would defend a participatory democracy where elections are transparent, credible, free and fair.
“We also call on relevant agencies to monitor the PDP as its recent utterances are a red flag. We must prevent a reoccurrence of the PDP’s typical undemocratic practices during elections. Never again will a selfish few distort the wishes of the electorate.”
