The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) said yesterday that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) cannot be an alternative, and therefore called on the opposition party to tender an unreserved apology to Nigerians for their 16 years of disastrous rule.
National chairman of the APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, who stated this through his media aide, Segun Dipe, said due to PDP’s perfidy, Nigeria’s resources were stolen and opportunities frittered away.
“But instead of being contrite, the PDP is arrogantly putting itself up as the alternative to a government that is barely one year in office and has inherited a totally ruined economy. This is brazenly irresponsible, ‘’ the statement said.
The APC said it was just as well that the PDP has not even been able to reposition itself to provide robust opposition to the APC-led federal government, adding that PDP’s lack of patriotism, recklessness and outright wickedness towards the ordinary Nigerians have finally caught up with the former ruling party.
“What the nation can now testify to, is that, the only thing that united the PDP was their singular commitment to milking the resources of this nation dry, as evident in all the corruption cases that have now been exposed.
“The PDP cannot therefore expect to move on, without first taking responsibility for their shameful conduct and ignominous behaviour. The starting point in their long journey to rehabilitation is to apologise to Nigerians,” the statement said.
