The ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC) has reacted, for the first time, to the just concluded PDP National Convention held at Abuja marred by revelations of money for votes as a stock in trade of PDP that can never change from its impunity and corruption.
APC National Publicity Secretary, Bolaji Abdullahi said: with â€œrevelations of how money-for-votes and systematic rigging was brazenly perpetuated during the National Convention of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the All Progressives Congress (APC) is mindful of the popular axiom: â€œA leopard cannot change its spotâ€.
The APC said the abnormalities that trailed the PDP National Convention have further exposed the PDP as a Party not ready and willing to change.
â€œIndeed, the PDP has once again displayed itself to the generality of Nigerians that it is The ruling All Progressives Congress has likened the opposition, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP to the leopard, which cannot change its spots.
It was the APCâ€™s first official reaction to the national convention of the opposition party that has vowed to defeat it in the next general election.
â€œIndeed, the PDP has once again displayed itself to the generality of Nigerians that it is a Party with corruption deeply rooted in its DNA.
â€œAgain, it is tragic that the PDP which used to pride itself as â€œthe biggest political Party in Africaâ€ has now been reduced to a regional party.
â€œBy frustrating South West Chairmanship candidates, it is unfortunate that the PDP has decided to punish the South West for not voting for the Party in 2015.
â€œWe urge members of the PDP that can pass the integrity test to join the APC so that we can together bring about the much-needed Change the country deservesâ€.
