The Presidency has mocked the Peoples Democratic Get together (PDP) over the latest defection of its members to the governing All Progressives Congress (APC).
In a chunk titled, ‘Speaking to PDP in the language it understands,’ Particular Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, stated the PDP could change into empty earlier than 2023.
Adesina wrote, “The opposition Peoples Democratic Get together is being spoken to within the language it understands. And it’s screaming blue homicide.
“PDP is being ravaged and savaged politically, and if care will not be taken, the Get together might change into an empty shell earlier than 2023. The vessel is leaking, and taking in water massively. It could need to scream ‘May Day’, ‘May Day’ quickly, and evacuate.
“The irony of all of it is that each time the PDP is making good points politically, all is jolly properly and good. However when it suffers reversals, then democracy is threatened within the nation.
“In 2015, by the point the mud of common elections settled, the All Progressives Congress had 24 Governors. PDP had 12, and All Progressives Grand Alliance had one.
“PDP, which had all the time vaunted itself as Africa’s largest social gathering, threatening to rule us for minimal of 60 years, was trying like King Lear at his worst. It had been knocked off its perch on the nationwide stage, additionally in lots of states, and its snout yanked from the nation’s honeypot. It was terribly sad.
“By mixture of schism, implosion and explosion, APC didn’t handle its success properly. By 2019, the variety of its governors had dwindled to about 19. And PDP was reaping the harvest. However APC retooled, obtained itself straightened out, and returned to profitable methods.
“Gov Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State ported into APC. Adopted by Ben Ayade of Cross River. And now Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State. APC is equally swelling when it comes to lawmakers and membership, each on the Federal and State ranges. The winner takes all of it, the loser standing small.
“PDP, at its lugubrious worst, is screaming and kicking. They’re plundering us! Democracy is at risk! Oh, actually? Since when?
“Welcoming Matawalle into the APC early final week, President Buhari stated the social gathering was rising in popularity ‘because of its impressive performance record and commitment to good governance.’
“True. But PDP never wants to hear that, and it accounts for all the obfuscation we see in the country. We have security challenges, very severe ones, no doubt. And those challenges are being frontally confronted, with the criminals ‘being sent to God to account for their crimes.’”
