The Lagos State chapter of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) has described the state Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as “a pack of
irredeemable critics who have no value to key in into Lagos politics except nursing a childish hope of cornering Lagos for milking.”
ACN was reacting to the statement allegedly made by the state PDP calling for the recall of Senator Oluremi Tinubu for describing
herself as a rookie in the senate recently.
In a statement signed by the state Publicity Secretary of the ACN, Joe Igbokwe, yesterday, the party said PDP, “with each passing day, in its futile desire, tried to add Lagos to its vassal, dishonored territory.
“Lagos PDP continues to degenerate into a band of irredeemable jesters who must open its mouth on any issue, even if it must embarrass itself, as it did in the instant case. It advisable that Lagos PDP quit exerting itself from creating motion where there is none and
creating substance where there is no substance.
“The PDP is a group of idlers, gossipers and clowns that needed to call for the recall of the senator. We wonder why Lagos PDP in its celebrated emptiness feels that sounding so bland on issues it cannot grapple with is the best way of fighting a battle for the soul of
sophisticated people of Lagos. We dare ask, must the Lagos PDP open its mouth and embarrass itself, as in the present case, just because it wants to keep appearance and get noticed?”
The state ACN therefore alleged that frustration was causing the state PDP a huge embarrassment “even unto itself and this remains the shame of a party that covets power for the power it grants it to loot and lay its vassal states bare.
“We urge all Lagosians to ignore the PDP and its many rants and these are borne out of the frustration that it is not gaining any stranglehold on the politics of Lagos.
