The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is “a cog in the wheel of the ‘nation’s democracy’”, adding that the country must be saved from total collapse.
Addressing former ministers of the PDP who visited him yesterday in Abuja, PDP National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, said it was time for the opposition party to brace up and seize power in the interest of Nigerians.
“APC has failed woefully. Our nation is in a situation where PDP must save this nation from total collapse. The government of APC has become a lame duck after former President Obasanjo released a political tsunami and verdict on the government,” he said.
Secondus told the ex-ministers to return to their constituencies and mobilise Nigerians ahead of 2019, saying the NWC was putting all the necessary measures in place to conduct transparent congresses and primaries.
Chairman of the PDP Ex-Ministers’ Forum and a former Minister of Special Duties, Alhaji Kabiru Tanimu Turaki, said, “We expect that with the kind of leaders we have in our NWC now, the war to bring back what rightly belongs to us has started.”
