Secondus Labels APC ‘A Drowning Party’, Insists PDP Will Rescue Nigeria

The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus, says the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is losing the strength to lead the country. Secondus made the claim on Saturday in Adamawa State, while addressing party supporters at a rally to launch the presidential campaign of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar. He accused the ruling party of showing “a sign of a drowning party” by allegedly going after perceived political opponents within and outside the APC. The PDP chairman, however, noted that his party has nothing to fear, noting that they are ready to wrest power from the ruling party. He noted that the APC would soon become a history in Nigeria and accused the party of “swimming in the valley of corruption.” In a statement by his media adviser Ike Abonyi, Secondus alleged that the Federal Government has not been able to disburse funds to states and projects because of the confusion and corruption that have bedevilled the administration. He noted that the rebranded and repositioned PDP has become the party of choice determined and ready to rescue Nigeria from the hands of APC.

Secondus assured the people of Adamawa State that under his watch, the party leadership would provide level playing grounds for all aspirants. He noted that an example of such is the PDP primary held in Osun State to choose a flagbearer for the party in the September 22 governorship election in the state. He accused the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) of failing to secure the people and their property, as well as worsening the economic situation of the nation. On his part, former President Atiku condemned the repeated killings in parts of the country and accused the government of failing to unite the people and worsening the economy. He claimed, “Today, we are more divided than any other time in the history of this country. APC government has destroyed our economy. They took over an economic growth of seven per cent and brought it down to less than two per cent.”
