The Peoples Democratic Party on Saturday said the Presidency and the All Progressives Congress is attempting to woo its members describing the party as discredited and famished fold .
The PDP said it has nothing , but pity for the APC, who , it alleged in its blind desperation, could not see that the train had since left the station .
National Publicity Secretary of the former ruling party, Mr. kola Ologbondiyan , in a statement in Abuja, said that nobody , no matter the lure , abandons a cruising liner , which he said the PDP now represented , to jump into “ a sinking ship with a disoriented captain which the APC has become .”
He was probably referring to attempts by the ruling party to woo a former Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Senator Godswill Akpabio from the PDP.
Ologbondiyan said, “Indeed , no one , no matter the enticement, runs into a collapsing building from where terrified, wounded and traumatized people are already taking flight for their dear lives .
“ Nigerians can now see the shameless hypocrisy of the APC, which is now going about , cap in hand, to beg the same persons it haunted as corrupt and evil , seeing that it has been overrun by the tides.
“ Having failed to cow such persons through threats , media trials , trumped -up corruption charges and raw violence , the APC is now seeking to ensnare them with promises of political opportunities it no longer has control over.
“ The dilapidated APC, by now , ought to have known that no Nigerian will again fall for its gimmick of false promises and subject him or herself to the prison yard democracy, that it offers . ”
