Abuja - The defection of the former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the ruling People's Democratic Party (PDP) has culminated in the latter launching another attack on the opposition for allegedly embracing terror.
PDP, in a statement late Tuesday, said the decision to dump the APC, where Fani-Kayode was a founding member and the return to the PDP was a "clear vindication" of its stand that the APC was a party of "bloodthirsty, religious and ethnic bigots averse to the unity of the country."
"The revelation by the former minister that the APC has sympathies for insurgents further confirms PDP's earlier position linking APC's
utterances to the spate of insurgency and sectarians violence in the country," stated PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh.
"We have now been vindicated. The truth may be hidden for sometime but it has a way of expressing itself. The world can now see that we do not speak for nothing when we describe them in their true nature; a cult, a hypocritical lot, wolves in sheep skin, devils who, through their utterances, stoke the fires of violence by night only to wear messianic robes in the morning to shed crocodile tears for their victims."
This is the latest in a series of attacks the parties have exchanged since the worsening of the insecurity around the country.
Most of it has been blamed on the Boko Haram sect.
"Nigerians are no longer at loss regarding who their real enemies are. They can now see why the APC feels no pain but seeks always to gain political capital out of the bombings and killings in our country.
Having realized that they have been rejected by the people, they resorted to using dastardly means including promoting violence and falsehood to further their plot to destabilize the polity, balkanize the nation and truncate the democratic process, a scheme which has already failed," the PDP statement read.
