APC driving Nigeria to one-party rule – PDP BoT

Says APC can’t force Nigerians to join party


• Reiterates PDP’s rejection of PEPC judgment

The Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has said the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, cannot force its members or Nigerians to join the party, declaring that its attempt to foist one-party rule on Nigerians will fail.

The party lamented that the suppressive policies of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have thrown more Nigerians into poverty and increased the anger in the country.

The PDP made the declaration on Thursday in a communiqué delivered by its board chairman, Senator Adolphus Wabara, after its 75th meeting in Abuja.

The Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), at its 75th meeting, thoroughly reviewed the state of affairs of the nation and the party and resolved as follows:

”The BoT is resolved to take urgent steps to resist the current manifest desperation by the APC to turn Nigeria into a one-party state, part of the communiqué read by Wabara, the former Senate President.

The communique further read, ”The BoT restates its rejection of the judgment of the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) in upholding the declaration of the All-Progressives Congress (APC) as the winner of the February 25, 2023, presidential election, in spite of the evidence clearly pointing to the contrary.

BoT is also monitoring and studying the outcome of cases in various election courts with regards to their level of adherence and respect to the Rule of Law and evidence before such a court.

BoT commended the PDP Presidential Candidate, His Excellency, Atiku Abubakar, for following due process of the law in his quest to retrieve the Presidential Mandate freely given to him at the February
25, 2023 Presidential election.

PDP board expressed confidence in the Supreme Court to ultimately and decisively right the wrongs and correct the manifest errors contained in the Judgment of the PEPC in the interest of the
unity, stability, and corporate existence of our country.

It lamented what it described as the excruciating hardship, worsening insecurity, and a general sense of apprehension and despondency across the country occasioned by the hasty implementation of ill-planned policies by the overtly insensitive APC administration.

BoT agonized over what it further noted as the worsening state of the nation’s currency, the naira.

BoT laments that the APC is pushing Nigerians to the wall and worries that the level of poverty and anger in the polity over the suppressive rule of the APC is capable of snowballing into a serious crisis if not urgently addressed.

BoT observed that the nation is currently in a precarious situation under the APC, and Nigerians look to the PDP for solutions and direction at this time.

BoT assures Nigerians that despite the challenges, the PDP remains united, stronger, and more determined to continue to lead the charge to rescue our democracy and return our nation to the path of
credible elections, rule of law, national cohesion, and economic prosperity.
