The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has strongly warn the new National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, to focus more on the problem his party has been facing since coming to power in 2015 which has prevented them from actualizing all their campaign promises and forget the empty threat of “forcefully” taken over Taraba and Delta States in 2019.
The PDP in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan on Sunday said Oshiomhole should concentrate his energy on saving the ruling party from imminent collapse.
“Perhaps, Oshiomhole mistook Delta and Taraba States 2019 elections for the APC 2018 national convention where President Muhammadu Buhari bullied and intimidated delegates to foist him as national chairman, without proper election.
“We know that Oshiomhole, in the excitement of his prosecution cover, would do everything to please his benefactor, but rather than seeking to distract our governors, who are busy delivering and commissioning projects, he should direct attention to President Buhari and APC governors who cannot boast of any serious achievement upon which they can campaign in 2019.
“The PDP cautions the APC to perish the thoughts of muzzling the electoral process at any level in 2019, as such will be stiffly resisted by Nigerians across the country.
“The PDP, in 2015, enjoyed overwhelming followership which has now tripled in the last three years, signposting our inevitable victory in 2019, particularly due to the sterling performance of Governors Ifeanyi Okowa and Darius Ishaku in delivering good governance and development to the people.
“Furthermore, it is an unpardonable assault on the sensibilities of the people of these states for Oshiomhole to mute that they will vote for the same APC, which has failed to protect their lives and has continued to play helpless while marauders slaughter their brothers and sisters and ravage their communities,” the PDP said.
