PDP LOST POWER TO APC, GRADUALLY LOSING TO LP – SHEHU SANI
Former lawmaker and political Activist, Senator Shehu Sani, has said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had lost its power to the ruling party of the All Progressive Congress (APC) and is gradually losing it to the Labour Party (LP).
Sani made the disclosure during a recent interview on the challenges faced by the political party since Minister Nyesom Wike alongside some of his colleagues worked against its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, during the 2023 general election.
He however urged PDP leadership to take quick action if they would not want the party to be erased off the country’s politics with its opposition role given to the Labour Party.
He said: ‘ As far as I am concerned, I think the PDP has to choose where it wants to be in the history of Nigeria’s politics at this time. Does it want to be a strong opposition party that would stand up to the excesses and antics of APC? Or does it want to be a subordinate of APC because if those who betrayed or undermined the party are allowed to go scout free, it is encouraging each and every person to do that ‘.
Furthermore, he said: ‘ PDP has lost power to APC, and it is now losing the role of the opposition to the LP. If you look at what is happening, most of the attacks and counterattacks are coming from the APC and the LP.”So, it has reached a point that even most members of APC do not consider PDP as a serious opposition and that will be a death sentence for the party if things progress along this line ‘.
