LAGOS DECEMBER 9TH (NEWSRANGERS)-Reacting to the APC NEC meeting, the opposition PDP said Nigerians ought to start celebrating the demise of the party, which it described as the “tormentor” of Nigerians.

In a statement titled: ‘PDP congratulates Nigerians as APC, their tormentor, finally fizzles’, signed by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, in Abuja on Tuesday, the PDP congratulated Nigerians across the country, adding that their tormentor for five years had finally “dissolves out of our political firmament.”

The statement read in part, “The APC, being overburdened by the weight of failure, humongous corruption as well as the plagues of economic recession, violence, killings and hardship it has brought to our people, forcefully exited itself from the nation’s political firmament by dissolving all its national, zonal and state structures.

“With this exit, December 8, 2020 has gone into the history of our nation as liberation day, especially given the spontaneous jubilation by Nigerians over this step towards political oblivion by a political party that has brought so much pain on them.

“Now that the APC has become defunct, the PDP invites the Independent National Electoral Commission to officially deregister the APC and recall its certificate of registration; given that it no longer has operational structures as required by law.”

It added, “In the same vein, INEC should immediately declare the seat of all lawmakers elected on the platform of the APC at the federal and state levels as vacant and commence the process of bye-elections to fill the seats as required by law.

“Furthermore, government agencies, civil society organisations as well as the international community should immediately gazette the APC as a defunct political organisation in our country.

“Nevertheless, the PDP invites all leaders of the fizzled APC to get ready to answer Nigerians for their misdeeds, and not to think they can get away with their atrocities by forming or joining another political party.”

In response to the PDP’s position, the APC Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, in a statement titled: ‘PDP leadership has gone senile, our democracy in desperate need of opposition – APC’, said, “It is now clear that the PDP’s disillusionment following their rejection by Nigerians in the 2011 and 2019 general elections has degenerated into senility.”
