PDP insists APC promotes religious bigotry

The PDP challenged the APC to publish the name of its interim officials

The war of words between the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and the All Progressives Congress, APC, over the religion in politics continued on Wednesday with the former insisting that the APC is promoting religious divisions.

The PDP, in a statement by its spokesperson, Olisa Metuh, also challenged the APC to publish the list of its 35 interim officials and state their offices.

The PDP was responding to APC’s statement admonishing it for trying to build animosity in the 2015 election using religion.

“It is shocking that the APC would attempt to hoodwink Nigerians even in the face of incontrovertible facts exposing its religious inclinations and plots to divide the nation along religious lines.”

The PDP said contrary to the denials posted by the APC in its statement on Wednesday, “the revelations by an Islamic cleric, Ambassador Yusuf Garba and the Religious Equity Promotion Council (REPC) that APC seeks to impose an agenda like the Egypt Muslim Brotherhood remains a fact that cannot be brushed aside.”

The ruling party stated that it will continue to expose and resist anything that seeks to cause divisions among Nigerians.

It called on Nigerians to resist the antics of the APC to Islamise the country.
