Abuja - The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has mocked the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of the weekend’s Anambra governorship election.
PDP claimed the electorate will reject the opposition party hence it was merely a “crying wolf” ahead of the key poll.
“The APC is now living in morbid fear because the people of Anambra State and the South East in general have rejected it on account of its tribal stance and hatred for the region as demonstrated in its sectional and anti-people policies including the recent deportation of Anambra state indigenes from Lagos which resulted in untold hardship and death of some of the victims, who were severally tortured before being dumped at Upper Iweka Head Bridge in Onitsha in the dead of the night,” said PDP in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh.
The PDP described the APC as party of “propagandists.”
PDP said its rival restricted itself to criticizing elections only in states where it lost such as Ondo and Delta but saw nothing wrong in states where they won such as Edo, even when stakeholders in such states have raised credibility issues.
The party stressed that contrary to claims by the opposition, President Goodluck Jonathan had remained resolute in his commitment to free and fair elections.
PDP said the APC was therefore not “imbibing the spirit of sportsmanship” yet it defeated PDP on many occasions.
“It is on record that the President has always congratulated candidates who won in free and fair elections irrespective of the parties they belong to,” stated Metuh.
Tony Nwoye and Chris Ngige are representing PDP and APC respectively in the election scheduled for Saturday.
