The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said the opposition, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has shown that it is a party “with corruption deeply rooted in its DNA”.
The ruling party said this in reaction to the just concluded convention by the PDP.
In a statement on Sunday, Bolaji Abdullahi, spokesman of the APC, said “the biggest political party in Africa has now been reduced to a regional party”.
“In reacting to revelations of how money-for-votes and systematic rigging was brazenly perpetuated during the national convention of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the All Progressives Congress (APC) is mindful of the popular axiom: ‘A leopard cannot change its spot’,” the statement read.
“The abnormalities that trailed the PDP national convention have further exposed the PDP as a party is not ready and willing to change.
“Indeed, the PDP has once again displayed itself to the generality of Nigerians that it is a Party with corruption deeply rooted in its DNA.
“By frustrating south-west chairmanship candidates, it is unfortunate that the PDP has decided to punish the South West for not voting for the Party in 2015.
“We urge members of the PDP that can pass the integrity test to join the APC so that we can together bring about the much-needed change the country deserves.”
