Nigeria’s ruling Peoples Democratic Party,PDP has continued its war of words with opposition parties.Spokesman of PDP ,Olisa Metuh said in a statement yesterday that the opposition parties have nothing to offer. “It is clear that the opposition parties has nothing to  offer”,Methuh said in reply to an earlier tirade against his party   by  the Action Congress of Nigeria.

Metuh said PDP’s “ attention has been drawn to a statement sponsored by opposition  Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) in which it once again engaged in  vicious attack on the PDP.

“The statement is a mere cover-up for the divisions, quarreling and  dissensions that marred their meeting today in Abuja”,he claimed.

According to the PDP spokesman,“Instead of unnecessarily attacking the PDP, the ACN and its  co-traveller, the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) should be bold  enough to tell Nigerians the outcome of their meeting where their  members were sharply divided over comments by their leader, General  Muhammadu Buhari condemning the decision by the Federal Government to  root out insurgency in the country and describing it as an attack on the  north.

“Many of their members have now realized that they are in the wrong boat  captained by insensitive religious and tribal bigots. This can only  vindicate the PDP which has continued to caution Nigerians against being  deceived by wolves parading themselves as saviours” Metuh said .

He dropped the clincher thus: “In any case, it is clear that the opposition parties has nothing to  offer. The barking of 20 dogs can never scare an elephant. These  frustrated tribal cum religious associations can never be equated to a  national party.”
