APC has mismanaged nation, without valid candidates for 2023 polls – PDP
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Council, yesterday, accused the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal Government of mismanaging the country’s diversity, economy, education, and security architecture.
The opposition party also alleged that the ruling party has become prostrate, handicapped, and incapacitated to campaign as it has no legally valid candidate for the 2023 general elections.”
Spokesman of the party’s campaign council, Charles Aniagwu, in a statement, however, reassured that its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar would energise the country’s private sector to drive the nation’s economy to provide jobs for the people when he takes the reins.
In the statement, which was a reaction to allegations by Information Minister, Lai Mohammed’s claims that Atiku plagiarised its candidate’s policy documents, Aniagwu stressed that Atiku had long prepared his policy document titled, “My Covenant With Nigerians.”
“If they had a plan, Nigeria would not be where we are today because they would have known that it was important to manage our diversity so that everybody is well taken care of.
“Nigerians helped them to power in 2015 and they left them (Nigerians) behind after failing to fulfill all their campaign promises.
Also yesterday, the party at a press conference addressed by its national publicity secretary, Debo Ologunagba, in Abuja, noted that “the import of the September 30, 2022 judgment of the Federal High Court is that every decision made by Governor Mai Mala Buni, as Chairman of the APC is null and void as you cannot place something on nothing and expect it to stand.
“Consequently, all the congresses, as well as the national convention, which produced APC executives, including the Senator Adamu Abdullahi-led NWC is void.
“In effect, the primaries and presidential convention conducted by the Senator Adamu Abdullahi-led NWC, including the nomination of Senator Ahmed Bola Tinubu as the presidential candidate of the APC is invalid, null, and void ab-initio,” the PDP stated.
