Abuja - The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Tuesday said it has nothing to do with the leadership crisis currently rocking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP),
The party said the PDP was suffering from the sins of the past.
The party was reacting to allegations by the Senator Ahmed Makarfi- led faction of the PDP blaming the Presidency and the APC for the leadership crisis.

Media reports on Tuesday quoted the Makarfi-led Caretaker Committee of the PDP as accusing the APC and the Presidency of being behind the Ali Modu Sherrif faction of the PDP ostensibly to ensure that the PDP is in perpetual crisis and unable to produce credible candidates for the forthcoming governorship elections in Edo and Ondo States.
But the APC in a statement signed by its National Secretary, Mai Mala Buni, said the PDP should put its house in order rather than playing to the gallery and blaming others.
The statement reads “For the umpteenth time, the APC wishes to state that instead of joining issues with the baseless and laughable allegations, the APC would rather join issues on matter that will bring about all-inclusive development to the country.
“However, it should be put on record that the PDP forced on itself whatever crisis it is troubled with today due to its politics of imposition and other undemocratic practices which the APC abhors.
“The PDP should put its house in order rather than playing to the gallery and blaming others but themselves for their sins which has come to hunt them. Also, it is evident that the PDP has chosen to employ diversionary tactics because of its inability to produce credible candidates for the forthcoming elections in Edo and Ondo States.”
