The Peoples Democratic Party has said it handed over a united and stable Nigeria to the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led government of President Muhammadu Buhari.
This is in response to a statement issued by the APC which claimed that the insurgency which its government was facing was inherited from the administration led by the PDP.
In the response, the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, berated the APC for attacking Rivers State Governor, Mr. Nyesom Wike, for exposing the failures of the APC and its administration, particularly their ignoble roles in the escalation of violence, killing and other acts of terrorism across our nation.
“The PDP asserts that Governor Wike, in stating that the future of our nation cannot be left in the hands of the APC, directly spoke the mind of majority of Nigerians across board.
“As such, any attack on Governor Wike, on this score, is a direct assault on the generality of Nigerians
“Nigerians are aware that the PDP administration of President Goodluck Jonathan handed over a united and stable country to the APC and President Muhammadu Buhari after pushing terrorists to the fringes and conducting elections in all parts of our country.
“The APC has not denied the fact that it was on assumption of its office that terrorism resurged as APC leaders opened up our nation to terrorists, bandits and vandals, including those they brought in from neighbouring countries, as political mercenaries to assist the APC to unleash violence on Nigerians during elections.
“Also, Nigerians are aware of how the APC administration shielded terrorism apologists in their cabinet how APC leaders, on several occasions, made case for terrorists, asked Nigerians not to fight back in the face of aggression and even blamed victims of terrorism as witnessed in the case of 43 rice farmers who were beheaded by terrorists in Borno State.”
PDP noted that the APC had been deliberately compromising the security of the nation to allow for chaos, crisis and emergency situation for their selfish and unpatriotic gains.
“That also explains why the APC always attack well-meaning Nigerians who seek to unveil their plots. It is indeed unfathomable how the APC and its government, with all the apparatchik of governance available to them, can be looking helplessly and forcing our country into a state of turmoil if the situation in which Nigeria is sunk was not their design.
PDP said it was clear that the future of Nigeria can never be left in the hands of an obtrusively incompetent, insensitive, vindictive and violent happy mass of failures like the APC.
“Moreover, the APC and its government have no propensity for peace; it has nobody in its political den to proffer approaches for a peaceful community of people and that is why they are always running to the PDP product in President Goodluck Jonathan for peacekeeping assignments across Africa and other parts of the world. Of course, one cannot give what he doesn’t have.
“It is therefore unfortunate that the APC will choose to live in perpetual self-denial over its inability and failure to ensure peace, unity, orderliness and cohesion in our country.
“Our party wants the APC to know that while they may gag their own members, they cannot stop other well-meaning Nigerians like Governor Wike from exposing the atrocities and failures of the APC.”

Delta PDP suspends Senator Peter Nwaoboshi
The Delta State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has suspended the Senator representing Delta North Senatorial District in the National Assembly Senator Peter Nwaoboshi.
The suspension endorsed by the PDP State Working Committee (SWC) subsists for a period of one month.
According to the State PDP leadership, “The action became necessary against the backdrop of the recent romance with the opposition party, verbal recklessness, and unprovoked utterances of Senator Peter Nwaoboshi, particularly against the person of His Excellency, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, the Executive Governor of Delta State, which the PDP State Working Committee views strongly as totally unacceptable, disturbing and unbecoming of a politician and party member of his stature.”
“The PDP State Working Committee is in no doubt that the rash, unguarded, confused and heavily noxious, and vitriolic attacks by Senator Nwaoboshi, a serving Senator and a very recent Chairman of our great Party, are potentially inimical to the peace and harmony of the Party and tantamount to causing discord and disaffection among loyal Party members.
“The suspension, therefore, though obligatory, has sadly become imperative and inevitable, especially given the dramatic spontaneity and overzealousness of his verbal attacks, which are totally out of character and the have suspiciously been induced by circumstances which defy immediate rational analysis and comprehension”, the statement signed by the Delta PDP Publicity Secretary, Dr. Ifeanyi Osuoza noted.
The matter, he said, has been referred to the State Disciplinary Committee, in order to afford Senator Nwaoboshi a fair hearing and the opportunity to appear before it and defend himself.
