ABUJA—NATIONAL leadership of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, yesterday, raised alarm that All Progressives Congress, APC, was plotting to impose a one-party system on Nigeria by approaching senior members of its party with phantom promises.
According to PDP, the move is a threat designed to destabilize it.
The party, in a statement yesterday by National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, said APC was plunging the country into a one-party state.
The statement read: “We are aware that as part of the plot, APC in the past few weeks, has been luring and encouraging some of our members to issue derogatory statements against the leadership of our party.
“While some of their accomplices have openly decamped, we know that others have been instructed to stay back and cause crisis within our ranks.
“Even in states where they lost, APC has engaged in violence and instigating crisis all in the bid to impose a one-party system in the country.
“Alhaji Mohammed, in his usual ill-mannered and condemnable approach, left the issues and dwelt on insults, disdainful comments and personal attacks.
”Is Alhaji Mohammed feigning ignorance of the various recent open and nocturnal meetings of his party with highly-respected members of PDP?
“Furthermore, PDP National Publicity Secretary does not need Alhaji Mohammed’s so-called six weeks crash course in party publicity.
“He does not need a course on how to insult and denigrate the office and person of the President of our country. PDP will do no such thing, but only focus on constructive criticism.”
