All Progressives Congress (APC), Tuesday said allegation by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), that it was using Sen. Ali Modu-Sheriff to destroy it was “baseless and laughable”.
It said in a statement signed by its National Secretary, Mai Mala Buni, that PDP “is suffering from its sins of the past”.
According to the statement, APC said “in monitored media reports on Tuesday, the Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led Caretaker Committee of the PDP speaking through a spokesperson accused the APC and the Presidency of being behind a faction of the PDP ostensibly to ensure that the PDP is in perpetual crisis and unable to produce credible candidates for the forth coming elections in Edo and Ondo state.
“For the umpteenth time, the APC wishes to state that instead of joining issues with the baseless and laughable allegations, the APC would rather join issues that will bring about all-inclusive development in the country.
“However, it should be put on record that the PDP forced on them whatever crisis it is troubled with today due to its politics of imposition and other undemocratic practices which the APC abhors.
“The PDP should put its house in order rather than playing to the gallery and blaming others but themselves for their sins which has come to hunt them. Also, it is evident that the PDP has chosen to employ diversionary tactics because of its inability to produce credible candidates for the forthcoming elections in Edo and Ondo states”.
