PDP Attacks APC Over Abia Rally
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described the mega rally held by the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Umuahia, Abia State on Tuesday as the height of insensitivity to the plight of Nigerians by the ruling party.
The PDP, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan urged Nigerians not to allow themselves to be deceived a second time by the APC.
It said if the ruling party has regard for Nigerians, it should, at this moment, be more concerned about the economic and security challenges in the country, more than any other thing.
According to the PDP: “Nigerians were disheartened to see leaders of the ruling party dancing away and making vain speeches at a time millions are still traumatised over killings in Benue and other parts of the country, while many more are groaning under the pains of economic hardship worsened by the unabating fuel crisis in the country.
“If the APC had any iota of regard for Nigerians, it would, at this moment, be brainstorming on the many woes it has caused the nation and how to shore up the economy ruined by its tactless government.
"The Umuahia rally has also shown that the APC leaders are not in any way interested in the welfare of Nigerians, but in their selfish, political and pecuniary interests. This even manifested in their empty speeches, wherein they could not present the people with any achievement or plans for future development.
“Perhaps, the APC would have learnt a lesson from the scanty turnout of Nigerians at their so called ‘mega rally.’ The cold response by the few attendees, the refusal of the people to brandish brooms and the total absence of cheers for their leaders, including the National Chairman, Chief John Oyegun, constitute a loud act of rejection.
“Again, we invite the APC to reflect on their failure to fulfil even the littlest of the promises they made to Nigerians in 2015. We urge Abians and, indeed, every Nigerian to take heed from the failed promises of the APC and refuse to be beguiled a second time.”
