The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said that Comrade Adams Oshiomhole is set to lead the All Progressives Congress (APC) into inevitable extinction, alleging that APC remains a stinking coven of treasury looters.
PDP in a statement on Tuesday by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan lampooned Oshiomhole for his attempt to divert public attention from the rot in his party to blaming the PDP for the self-inflicted infighting in the APC.
The PDP said that it is only in a dysfunctional and disoriented party that Oshiomhole, who is also overburdened by corruption allegation, can find a space.
He pointed out that Oshiomhole needs to know that his party is yet to recover from the shambolic conduct of its affairs, particularly its congresses, in which lingering allegations of bribery, extortion, manipulations, excessive highhandedness and corruption had destroyed its fabrics.
“One would have expected Mr. Oshiomhole to eat the humble pie and accept responsibility for leading his party into an irredeemable disarray, rather than accusing respected Nigerians and the PDP for the disgraceful infighting in his party over loot sharing, lust for power and inordinate ambition to continue to pillage our national patrimony.
“It is equally appalling that rather than engaging himself in a soul searching and apologize to Nigerians over the destruction which the APC has caused our nation, Mr. Oshiomhole is busy mouthing diatribes against the PDP that created a robust economy which his confused party had vanquished” PDP stated.
He said that PDP is a focused, organized and purposeful political party, which Nigerians are rallying to rescue the nation from the incompetence, cluelessness, arrogance and mass failures of the APC in the last five years.
“It is therefore instructive for Oshiomhole to note that the PDP is too busy to be interested in the APC or engage itself in any brickbat with a failed political party whose end has come.
“APC can no longer beguile Nigerians as they have since come to know that it is nothing but a power grabbing vehicle designed to fleece our nation and subjugate the citizens.
“Mr. Oshiomhole should thus concentrate on his role as the undertaker of the APC until he buries the ashes of his fizzling party and save Nigerians the trauma of suffering which the APC has come to represent, instead of dabbling into the activities of our great party,” the statement said.
