APC Makes U-Turn, Shocks The Entire Nation, Congratulates PDP Over Successful Party Convention

The entire nation was on Tuesday, thrown into shock, as the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, congratulated the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, over its successful National Convention that was held last Saturday, at the Eagle Square, Abuja.

The National Chairman of the APC, John Oyegun, said the ruling party “wholeheartedly welcome” opposition, and hoped Uche Secondus would use his “experience garnered over the years, to ensure that the PDP assumes its role as a responsible opposition party in the country.”

“Our party wholeheartedly welcome opposition, because we believe that democracy cannot thrive without a vibrant but responsible opposition, that puts the nation first”, Oyegun said in a statement on Tuesday.

“This will often challenge you to balance partisan interests with overall national considerations.”

The cordial remarks came two days after both parties clashed over the PDP’s elections, characterised by allegations of rigging and manipulation.

Shortly after the polls, the APC said in a statement on Sunday, that the exercise exposed the opposition party as a platform with corruption in its DNA.

“The abnormalities that trailed the PDP National Convention have further exposed the PDP as a party not ready and willing to change”, the ruling party had said through its Spokesperson, Bolaji Abdullahi.

“Indeed, the PDP has once again displayed itself to the generality of Nigerians, that it is a party with corruption deeply rooted in its DNA.”

The PDP responded in like manner, labeling the ruling party as an organisation of fraudulent characters that had repeatedly deceived and lied to Nigerians.

“Nigerians have come to discover that APC is a fraud, an organisation of deceitful characters who have failed to keep a single of its countless promises made to the citizens”, the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, said in a statement.

However, in a statement he personally signed, Oyegun expressed his willingness to engage Secondus “robustly in an atmosphere devoid of acrimony and rancour”.

“I believe that working together, we can both elevate the language and temper of politics in our country, thereby providing the enabling environment for democracy to thrive in our country”, he said.
