PDP is darkness, APC is light, says ANPP chair, Onu

ANPP chairman, Ogbonnaya Onu
National Chairman of the All Nigerian Peoples Party (ANPP), Ogbonnaya Onu, on Tuesday, said the 2015 presidential election would be a titanic contest between the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the newly formed All Progressives Congress (APC).
Describing the PDP as a “conservative” outfit and APC as “progressive”, Mr Onu carpeted those comparing the ruling party to APC, saying doing so would amount to comparing darkness to light. He said PDP is darkness while APC is light.
According to him, Nigerians would know the difference between the two parties by the time the new party unfold its manifesto and registered by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), adding that the new party would provide the alternative platform that Nigerians desirous of change had been yearning for.
He spoke in Abuja during the presentation of the ANPP Rebuilding and Inter Party Contact Committee report.
“2015 polls would be a contest between the progressive members of the APC and the PDP conservatives that had failed to move the country forward since the return of democratic governance in the country,” he said.
“Once registered, the APC would pursue the interests of the ordinary Nigerian man and woman. We would put the interest of Nigerians first. There would surely be a marked difference with the PDP. It is the difference that will make Nigerians support us.”
He recalled that there were doubts that the ANPP would go into merger with other political parties, adding that the new party, if voted into power in 2015, would address the myriad of problems confronting the nation.
For Kano State Governor, Ibrahim Shekarau, who led the committee, thanked the leadership of the party for the honour to serve it in that capacity.
The former governor and presidential candidate of the party in the last presidential election revealed that more opposition parties had shown interest in joining APC.

  • The attempt at drawing a parallel with the US political system is silly. The PDP has neither been conservative nor progressive; it has been wasteful in spending and unaccountable to any of the said wastefulness.

    And I’d dare to say the light vs. darkness comparison is simply pedestrian: light and darkness are both desirable, with each suited to different situations. Why not state the contrast(s) between the two instead of employing some irrelevant rhetoric?

      Is tinubu the one holding the light for APC-in the south west? I laugh-the same APC that voted over 77b to run Fashols office whereas Gej voted 27b for his and 28b for the internet’ none for water-haba while Gej is to run his with 57m-that is the ministry of information–tell us who is more prudent APC or PDP? This is crap

    this former governor has never won election since he started hanging out with terrorist Buhari. Enough said.

      mpitikwelu_na_Ugwu_Awusa, from your posts, you prefer the terrorists from the creek such as President Jonathan, MEND people, Dokubo, etc to other terrorists. Okay I see your point mpitikwelu. Not too bad after all, you are doing well with your posts.

    What is light? What is darkness? Only time will tell.
