The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has described the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as a party that lacks direction.
Speaking on Saturday at the unveiling of the Tinubu/Shettima door-to-door campaign group in Abuja, the Lagos State wondered why the PDP still exists.
The former Lagos State governor stated that the ruling APC is a smarter party, urging members not to be bothered about the opposition.
Tinubu said: “We are not just the ones to hurl abuses and insults at our rivals’ party. We don’t need it. We are smarter; we are brilliant; we are courageous; we are not like them.
“They spent 16 years and forgot that there is a railway infrastructure that can do haulage, human carriage, animal husbandry, and food carriage across the length and breadth of the country.
“They (PDP) got there and turned it into an incubator. I wonder why they still exist as a party. These are people still fighting for the leadership of their party, looking for the direction of the compass. We are not equal at all; we are smarter. We know the road; let them follow.
“We don’t need to worry about PDP — poverty development party. Today, let’s lower the temperature. It’s not the time to campaign yet. They will hear a lot from us.
“We are the party of progressive ideas. We want good education for our children, good development for Nigeria, prosperity for this country, agricultural and agro-allied projects to be embarked upon.”
Naija News reports that the PDP is currently in crisis over its leadership, with Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State and some other governors calling on the national chairman of the party, Senator Iyorchia Ayu, to resign.
