“Focus on issues and engage in more robust debates on the economy and other issues of governance in the general interest of the country.” That was the charge given by the PDP to the newly registered All Progressives Congress (APC) following the successful completion of their registration and the issuance of registration certificate by INEC.
In a statement released by the Acting National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, the party said, “The leadership of the PDP congratulates the leadership of the APC on the successful registration of their new party. This is very healthy for our democracy.”
The PDP could not let the moment pass without having a go at the APC, telling the new party that it hopes that “from now the opposition will eschew all forms of bitterness and desperation and desist from politics of propaganda which characterized their former parties. We hope to see a vibrant opposition that will constructively engage the PDP on issues of governance in a way that Nigerians will be the utmost beneficiaries, instead of overheating the polity by promoting violence and hatred among the people.”
