The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Sunday mocked the All Progressive Congress (APC) over the crisis that trailed its state congresses in many parts of the country.
Crisis trailed the APC congresses in the 36 states across the country on Saturday with different factions conducting parallel exercises in defiance to the party’s directives to all aggrieved members to channel their complaints through appropriate platforms for resolution.
In a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP said the ruling party’s congresses were “a harvest of confusion with the leaders engaging in physical, verbal and emotional assault against one another.
According to the opposition party, a situation in which the APC members used their thugs to unleash mayhem on rivals and threatened them with charms and dangerous weapons was a pointer to the challenges facing the nation.
The statement read: “It is indeed despicable that a party that has the incumbent President of the country could not successfully conduct state congresses, as their leaders were seen behaving recklessly and investing heavily in violence; a development that speaks volumes on why our nation has been under the heavy yoke of violence, division, bloodletting and acts of terrorism under the APC watch.
“The outcome of APC congresses in many of the states has shown that it is a party that lacks leadership direction and internal cohesion; a party of unruly people, who are averse to peace, which explains why our country is reeling in crisis under the APC.
“The APC cannot guarantee or give unity, tranquility and progress to our nation. Instead, it has continued to worsen the tension in the country. It has continued to show itself as a party that is troubled from within and only waiting to implode at any time
