The All Progressives Congress, APC has described the PDP as a ‘dead party’ after comments by Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike.
Wike had alleged that the APC has some of its members in the PDP.
He said the members are working to protect the interest of the APC.
Yekini Nabena, Acting Spokesman of the APC in a statement, challenged Wike to mention the names of the APC agents planted by the PDP.
He further referred to the party as a “rudderless ship” that is sinking.
“In reacting to the allegations by the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike that the APC has sponsored some PDP presidential aspirants, it is understandable that the PDP in its despair over its failed 2019 election bid for the presidency has resorted to comical conspiracies,” the statement read.
“Meanwhile, we challenge governor Wike to be brave enough and name the APC-sponsored aspirants among the crowd that have signified interest to run for the presidency under the PDP.
“We urge the PDP to quickly wake up to the reality that the 2019 presidential elections have been won and lost.
“The PDP is a dead party and we urge its members who share our progressive ideals to leave the sinking and rudderless ship and come over to the APC which is rebuilding and repositioning the country in all facets.”
