APC can not rule for 40 years – PDP tells Ali Modu Sheriff

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has stated that the ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC) will not be allowed to stay in power beyond May 2023.

This statement made by the main opposition party was in response to a comment credited to a former governor of Borno state, Ali Modu Sheriff.

Sheriff while addressing journalists in Abuja had expressed his intentions for the ruling party if he emerges national chairman.

He added that he wants the “APC to be in government in the next 30 to 40 years”.

Reacting on the said comment via a statement issued on Monday, the PDP described Sheriff’s comment as “reckless assertion”.

He added that the ruling party will be voted out of power in 2023.

“The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has told the former Governor of Borno state, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, to perish the thoughts of All Progressives Congress (APC) ruling for 40 years, as Nigerians are resolute in their decision not to allow the APC and its associated bloodletting, killings, violations, corruption and economic hardship in our polity, beyond May 29, 2023,” Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP spokesperson, said in a statement.

‘The PDP’s position is predicated on the arrogant and reckless assertion by Sheriff that their aspiration is to continue to foist APC in government for the next 40 years, in defiance of the decision by Nigerians to do away with their party by 2023.

“Ali Modu Sheriff must know that Nigerians are aware of the desperate plots by the APC and its members that are behind acts of terrorism, banditry, treasury looting, violation of rights and electoral manipulations in our country, to continue to enjoy official cover using the APC as a platform for their reprehensible activities.

“Nigerians have decided to kick out the APC in the 2023 general election and no amount of manipulations or evil machination can sway that resolve to ensure that the APC does not stay a day beyond May 29, 2023.

“The PDP therefore has nothing but pity for Ali Modu Sheriff and his co-travelers as the conspiracies against our dear nation will surely come to naught.”
