PDP said this while reacting a statement credited to the Special Adviser to the President on National Assembly Matters, Senator Ita Enang, claiming that members of the National Assembly, who defected from the All Progressives Congress, APC, have agreed to work for Buhari in the 2019 election.
However, PDP, in a statement by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan while dispelling the submission “as a hallucination of a failing government,” said the Buhari presidency has become so ” jittery over its imminent loss of the 2019 election that it now recourse to bare-faced lies and childish blackmail.”
PDP said, “Such will not save the disintegrating All Progressives Congress (APC) from drowning.”
The statement said, “the party maintains that those who deserted the sinking ship of APC did so in protest against the incomptences of
President Muhammadu Buhari, leading to the unabating killings, bloodletting and biting economic hardship across our nation in the last
“We further say that the APC-led Federal Government has woefully failed to deliver on any of its promises and has nothing to showcase except a recourse to underhand tactics and intimidation of opponents and perceived enemies.
“Those who left the APC are therefore no longer prepared to continue living a lie that everything is okay with our nation, whereas under the
leadership of President Buhari the drift towards anarchy as well as the indices of a failing state are very manifest.
“We, therefore, find it ludicrous that the Presidency can sit back and claim that compatriots who have seen ahead that President Buhari is taking our nation to nowhere will turn around and contemplate casting
their votes for him in 2019.
“We, therefore, urge the Buhari Presidency to stop its fantasy game and be ready to confront the crushing defeat that awaits him and his party in the 2019 general elections.”
