At this point it’s safe to say we can all agree that these two parties probably need to sit down and iron out their issues over cookies and cups of iced tea. Unless, of course, you find the constant back and forth entertaining in which case you won’t be disappointed by them.
In the most recent jab, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has advised the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) to stop promoting what it views as falsehoods, especially regarding issues that should be in the past.
Speaking yesterday, National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Chief Olisa Metuh lamented that the ACN was still disputing the credibility of the 2011 presidential elections.
“This is a very shameful attempt to regurgitate falsehood from a well-known fact,” Metuh said. “It is over a year since the 2011 presidential election which the Peoples Democratic Party won fair and square as attested to by local and international observers.”
“And it is on record that neither the ACN leadership nor its presidential flag-bearer challenged the credibility of that election.’
“Therefore, waking up a year later to voice an ignoble dissent to an election whose credibility is admitted to by the whole world is sheer hypocrisy,” he continued. “An understandable swing to placate extant fancies; at the end, a suicidal self abjuration.”
