PDP again accuses APC of spreading fear and terror

24 March 2014, 12:25

Abuja - The ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP)slammed the All Progressive Congress (APC) amid escalating terror and the opposition's recently-released manifesto.

“When we accused the APC of being behind the insurgency, we did not speak in vain and when we summarized the manifesto of the party as a product of Janjaweed ideology, we have verifiable reasons,” stated PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, stated.

He insisted that the actions and comments of the APC had continued to give it away as the face behind the insurgency in parts of the country, dismissing its denial of complicity as an ill articulated afterthought.

“The serious threat of violence should President Jonathan contest in 2015, including the most recent prophecy of violent deaths and destruction in 2015 by Nasiru El Rufai, are not slips from elements on the fringe but revelations from characters who know more than ordinary Nigerians."

He further alleged, “Insurgency is APC and APC is insurgency. We recall also that the APC attempted to use the Anambra governorship election in November 2013 to testits agenda by posting fake opinion polls, making inflammatory statements concerning the election and using armed thugs in a botched bid to unleash mayhem."
