PDP sticks to its guns on APC manifesto

10 March 2014, 08:38Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The ruling party stood by its statement that the All People’s Congress (APC) was pursuing a “Janjaweed” ideology after the opposition released its election manifesto last week.

“The PDP maintained that the ideology of APC is the same as the Janjaweed as well as the Anti-Balaka and the Seleka of the Central African Republic whose ideology is completely anarchists.
The ruling party insisted that it will be out of place for anybody to associate APC with Islam or any other religion for that matter adding that no religion encourages the promotion of violence, greed, destruction and lust for power which are the trademarks of the APC,” People’s Democratic Party (PDP)  National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, stated.

The party charged the APC to stop the “heinous” attempt at hiding under Islam to curry public sympathy saying the APC had since shown that it had no respect for Islam.

“No true Muslim would identify with a party made up of anarchists bound together by the lust to power and desperation to rule by any means including shedding of blood. PDP has more committed Muslims, and who are worshipping Allah in truth more than the APC, the statement noted that the PDP is led by a very dedicated Muslim as National Chairman and who replaced another prominent Muslim National Chairman,” Metuh said.

He said the ruling party was responsible and committed Muslims as ministers, state governors, legislators and leaders in the national, state, local government and ward levels across the country.

“In working tirelessly to ensure that they make the country ungovernable for President Goodluck Jonathan, the APC has shown that they do not believe the truth in the Koran that power belongs only to Allah and that, in His infinite grace and wisdom, He gives power to anybody he chooses.  On the roadmap unveiled by the APC, the PDP insisted that it is not worth discussing as it was evidently rushed out without proper homework. The ruling party described the document as wishy-washy, lacking in depth and character and failed to address any issue.”
