The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has faulted the call made by Nigeria Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo that its leaders should decamp to the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC before they die.
Over the weekend, Prof. Osinbajo had called on the PDP leaders to join the ruling party before their demise.
The VP gave the call during a dinner party which was held to celebrate the 80th birthday of APC’s former National Chairman, John Oyegun in Abuja.
Yemi Osinbajo had said:
“You can see that we politicians are very faithful and very loyal, indeed. I can only ask our friends in the PDP to also ensure that they cross over before they die. It is time for them to cross over.”
While reacting to the call, the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan mocked Prof. Osinbajo over his failure to understand the “drumbeats playing across the nation.”
In a terse statement, Ologbondiyan said:
“Professor Osinbajo cannot comprehend the drumbeats playing across the nation. Only that can account for his wishful invitation to our party members to decamp to the failed APC.
“Nigerians are looking toward the judiciary to return our party’s stolen presidential mandate for the nation to come out of the woods, which the APC and Buhari’s Presidency have plunged her.”
