ABUJA— The People’s Democratic Party, PDP, yesterday, described the All Progressives Congress, APC, as a party of internal contradictions, saying the recent treatment of a widow in Benin by Governor Adams Oshiomhole showed the party to be really anti-people.
In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, PDP said APC had finally unveiled itself and its “inherent contradictions in the messianic pretenses of the APC against its lead role in the cascading anti-people actions and utterances.
“This minute, APC evangelises Nigerians on fine points of good governance and nationalism, claiming they are the ones sent, while the next minute the same APC leaders are caught with sharp sword on the soul of the nation.
“The actual meaning of APC is ‘Anti Peoples Congress’ and this party’s main ideology is the dehumanisation of Nigerians.
“Over the weekend, we saw the Pharaoh Khufu of the 4th dynasty Egypt play out in Edo, where the sorrowful tears of a downtrodden widow, prostrate at the feet of the governor, pleading for leniency, could neither provoke emotion, leniency nor restraint.
“Rather she got a piercing arrow of a wicked utterance unbecoming of an elected public officer.”
