The All Progressives Congress says the Peoples Democratic Party is seeking to take over power in 2019 in order to return to its stealing ways.

The party in response to a claim by the PDP that corruption is more under President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, asked the PDP to explain to Nigerians how it fought corruption in 16 years.

The APC said after presiding over monumental pilfering of national resources, the PDP should have been apologising to Nigerians rather than presenting itself for elective offices.

In a statement by its acting National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, the APC accused the PDP of using diversionary tactics.“Although the opposition in a democracy is supposed to offer constructive criticisms and proffer alternative solutions to government policies and programmes, the opposition rhetoric of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is nothing but senseless noise-making, in its failed attempt to distract the President Muhammadu Buhari administration.

“In both content and context, PDP’s latest allegations on President Buhari administration’s anti-corruption efforts should be seen for what they are: empty, baseless and diversionary.

“The PDP may wish to explain to Nigerians under which administration a state governor who was set free in many courts in Nigeria on charges of corruption and money laundering was tried and jailed in the United Kingdom.
