The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has mocked the All Progressives Congress while urging it to accept its “mass failures in party management and governance and stop bothering Nigerians with their regular lamentations.”
This was in reaction to a statement issued by the ruling party claiming to have improved the electoral process in the country.
Kola Ologbodiyan, the PDP National Publicity Secretary faulted the claim, saying “what abounds in our nation is a painful story of how the APC has destroyed our economy, our electoral process, and our national unity, to the extent that life has become despondent to the average Nigerian.
“We accept the fact that the APC lacks the capacity for feedback mechanism, however, the PDP wishes to bring to the attention of the APC that all Nigerians today would wish this administration had come to its end.
“Notwithstanding, our party counsel that the APC should begin to prepare their handover notes because Nigerians are not ready to endure this anguish beyond May 29, 2023.
“The PDP urges Nigerians to continue to rally with our party; as we collectively prepare to rescue our nation from this incompetent, divisive, and thoughtless APC and its administration.”
Meanwhile, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, OYC, has appealed to the restive youths in the South-East region; to de-escalate tension for a period of one month.
This appeal is due to the current violence in the region; in the wake of the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
In a statement issued Wednesday, October 13, by the Ohanaeze President-General, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, he called for a one-month ceasefire by the restive youths.
He said in the statement that “it is just proper that at this juncture; the NASS caucus and two governors who are making moves to secure Nnamdi Kanu’s freedom, be given a chance.
“This is not the first time Chief Senator Ike Ekweremadu-led NASS caucus will be playing this role; they did it in the past and it was fruitful. So, we advocate that they be given the benefit of the doubt.
“To this end, we appeal that every form of restiveness should cease henceforth till a period of one month; within which we expect to see visible progress towards the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.”
