PDP congratulates new APC executives

The PDP, however, said the APC new leadership posed no threat to it.


The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has congratulated the new National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, John Oyegun; its National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, and other newly elected officers for their emergence at their party’s National Convention which held Friday in Abuja.

The PDP charged them to ensure a vibrant opposition devoid of bitterness, desperation and divisive tendencies.
The ruling party’s National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, in a statement on Saturday also told the new leadership to “ensure an issue based opposition that will purposefully and constructively engage and challenge the PDP with decency and maturity as prescribed by democratic tenets and principles.”

Stating that Nigerians deserve a vibrant and patriotic opposition driven only by the national interest, the PDP charged the new APC leadership to “put the unity and welfare of Nigerians ahead of other considerations and jettison all divisive tendencies including unguarded statements that overheat the polity and pitch Nigerians against one another”.

The PDP, however, said the APC new leadership posed no threat to it.

The ruling party said it remains the only party that has continued to be committed to the national interest, as well as provide level playing ground for all Nigerians to achieve their aspirations irrespective of religious, ethnic and gender considerations.
