The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says it is inevitable that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) will “exit the zenith of the leadership of Nigeria” in 2019.
In a statement by Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP national publicity secretary, the party said the APC was scared of losing control of the south-west region.
It alleged that APC had wrecked the country and that Nigerians are “impatient to kick them out.”
“The APC must note that their exit has become inevitable. They must note that the more they fight the PDP, the more united we become and the more Nigerians see through their deception and emptiness,” the statement read.
“The truth is that the APC administration, having wrecked the country, is resorting to shadow boxing to stay afloat; Nigerians are however, impatient to kick them out.
“Today, many are leaving their ranks in droves. Very soon their party will be empty and its collapse will be loud.
“Having woefully failed to stop the PDP elective national convention, a desperate APC has again failed in another bid to plant seeds of discord within the ranks of our members in the south-west, particularly on issues relating to the outcome of our hugely successful national convention.
“The people of the south-west have, however, seen through the antics of the APC propaganda machine and would not allow themselves be deceived.
“In fretting, the APC does not seem to realize that people in the Southwest are as much victims of its misrule as other Nigerians.”
The party, however, said the south-west would “not fall for the antics of the APC”, adding that the PDP remains a united family.
It asked Nigerians to be patient, while promising to return the nation to the path of unity and prosperity.
