* Expresses gladness on Dogara’s return
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said the recent and unintelligible rants by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are not unconnected to the impending mass defections set to hit the failed opposition party.
The party, in a statement by the Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, said the call by the PDP for the resignation of the President was silly.
“Nobody expects the PDP to provide ideas on good governance going by their inglorious past and antecedents.
“We only reiterate that the PDP stays quiet while the President Muhammadu Buhari administrations clear the rot they foisted on the country,” APC said.
The ruling party further stated that Nigeria deserved a vibrant, purposeful and credible opposition “not the laughing stock the country have been subjected to in the name of the opposition PDP.”
The party also expressed gladness for the return of the former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara, to the APC.
“It is well within the rights of PDP members to abandon a rudderless and sinking ship for the progressive fold. Going by the popular axiom: Why fly like a hen when you can soar like an Eagle?.
“We are particularly gladdened by the return of the former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara to the APC.
“As we work collectively to achieve the Nigeria of our dreams, we will no doubt encounter challenges along the way.
“But one thing is sure. Under the focused and sincere leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari, we are already delivering on key electoral promises of securing the nation, fighting corruption and improving the economy and livelihoods” APC said.
