A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, Fred Udeogu has asserted that the All Progressives Congress was put together by some aggrieved politicians with the sole purpose of defeating Goodluck Jonathan in the 2015 presidential election.
Udeogu, who is the PDP Caretaker Committee Chairman in Ebonyi State submitted that beyond the mission of unseating Jonathan and denying him a second term in office, the APC had no other plan or agenda for Nigerians. Cheif is coming.
In his views, that is why the party has found it difficult to point to any meaningful thing it has achieved within the six years since it took over power.
He made the submissions on Tuesday in Abakaliki shortly before the party’s Local Government Area Congress kicked off in Ebonyi.
He stated further that the PDP remains the party of choice and remains committed to delivering good governance across all levels regardless of challenges that may be encountered.
Udeogu said, “Everybody knows that the only party in Nigeria and even in Africa, is the PDP.
“What then is APC? There was nothing like the APC, until some aggrieved politicians left the PDP and said they had formed APC. This is very, very clear and that is why you have the APC finding it hard to fulfill its campaign promises to Nigerians till date, for over six years.
“They don’t have what it takes to rule Nigeria. Their main aim in 2015, was just to make sure Jonathan didn’t win. Till date, can they boost one thing they have achieved for the citizens?
“They can’t, because from the onset they had no blueprint on how to govern this country.
“God has been on our side since we came on board. For today’s Congress, we expected hitches and that was why we made arrangements to counter those envisaged hitches.”
Meanwhile, former Minister of Aviation Senator Stella Oduah has been accused by the Pandora Papers of secretly acquiring four London properties, hiding behind an anonymous offshore company, and possibly committing a breach of Nigeria’s public service code of conduct law.
