Former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Mallam Nuhu Ribadu has on Friday said that the reason why Nigerians are defecting from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC) in droves is due to the realization that the party is at war with them.
Nuhu Ribadu who was reacting to questions from newsmen in Yola added that due to the rejection the party is suffering throughout the country, it has been casting aspersion on the integrity of the APC adding that Nigerians should not be deceived by the ranting of the dying party.
“Nigerians should not be deceived by the aspersions and mischief being promoted by the PDP leadership against the APC calling it an old wine in a new bottle.
“What they are saying is not true, they are blinded by their desperation to cause confusion because of the wind of change currently blowing in the country ”.
“Those that are defecting to APC are going to where Nigerians want them , as that amounts to answering the clarion call of Nigerians for Good Governance and the entrenchment of the rule of law.
“They are leaving the failed party that has relegated their aspirations to the background to a party that will salvage them from the current lackluster government that has nothing to show for the 13 years in power’’.
Ribadu added that more than 13 years after its coming, the PDP government has not opened a new road throughout the country saying, that is the height of irresponsibility.
“Since the coming of the PDP no new road project was initiated throughout the country, is that not the peak of irresponsibility?” he queried.
