Abuja - The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has stood by its statement that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is plotting to impose a one-party system in the country.
Richard Ihediwa, Special Assistant to the National Publicity Secretary, said they are aware of plot by the APC in the past few weeks in luring and encouraging some members of PDP to issue derogatory statements against the leadership of the party.
“We are aware that as part of the plot, the APC in the past few weeks, has been luring and encouraging some of our members to issue derogatory statements against the leadership of our party. While some of their accomplices have openly decamped, we know that others have been instructed to stay back and cause crisis within our ranks,” Ihediwa said.
The party added that the APC had engaged in violence and instigating crisis in states where they lost elections all in the bid to impose a one-party system in the country.

The party noted that the APC National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, in his response, did not deny.
“PDP National Publicity Secretary does not need Alhaji Mohammed’s so-called six weeks crash course in party publicity. He does not need a course on how to insult and denigrate the office and person of the President of our country. He has already made it clear that the PDP will do no such thing but only focus on constructive criticism while presenting credible alternatives to the policies and programmes of the incoming administration in a manner that will promote democracy and the well-being of Nigerians,” Ihediwa added.
APC’s Muhammadu Buhari will assume power late in May after winning presidential polls held on March 28.
