The All Progressives Congress (APC) has challenged the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to stop shopping around for supporters rather channel their energy on the forthcoming 2019 general elections.
The ruling party in a statement by its spokesman, Bolaji Abdullahi, said, “We challenge the PDP to face Nigerians on their own merit in 2019 and stop shopping around for supporters.
“After three years in the wilderness, the PDP is understandably excited with the possibility of hiding it’s irredeemably imaging under the heap of a new coalition.
“Like the vulture, PDP sees every altercation as a potential opportunity for a feast.
“If PDP is not alleging wild conspiracies, they are threatening to boycott elections or announcing fake defections.
“What is clear with all these is that no matter how long a leopard lives, it cannot change its spots.
“Party politics is a game of number and that game in addition.
“If the PDP had the same presence of mind in 2015, perhaps the calamity that befell them would have been averted.” the party added.
The further APC called on the PDP to emulate what President Muhammadu Buhari and the National Chairman of the party, Adam Oshiomhole is doing by persuading aggrieved members not to leave.
