Nigeria: Campaign now or keep quiet after defeat, PDP tells APC

The national hierarchy of the PDP yesterday intervened into the campaigns with a damning injunction on the APC to campaign now instead of resorting to empty propaganda and blackmail that would earn it only defeat.

The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh in a statement yesterday said the PDP was working harder than ever to ensure victory in the polls, noting that the factors which gave it victory in Ekiti, including a popular candidate with grass root appeal, strong and well accepted message as well as the humble and effective leadership of its leader, President Goodluck Jonathan were still at play.

The PDP said while its candidate and members have been campaigning and winning the support of the people, the APC has engaged in “political gallivanting, rigmarole and ineffective propaganda in the media without focusing on the fact  that only the votes of the people will count on election day.

“We urge Nigerians to note that whilst the APC leaders are focused on campaign of calumny, character assassination and creating confusion, the PDP is sensitizing, appealing and campaigning to the people while strengthening and expanding its support base in the state.

“We want them to note that whereas our candidate and supporters have been engaged in vigorous all-inclusive campaign in all the nooks and crannies of the state, the APC, detached from the people and ignoring the reality that the South West voters are tired of fake progressives, has stuck to out-worn triumphant cliches and tactics like it did in Ekiti. When they eventually lose, blackmail and violence may come handy in an attempt to discredit the process.

“In any case what does one expect from a party that has no message and agenda for the people; a party based on religious and ethnic interests and which has absolutely nothing to offer in the furtherance of the national interest”, the PDP said.
