Fani-Kayode’s revelation vindicates us – PDP

By Samuel Ogidan

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has lambasted the All Progressives Congress (APC), describing the decision of the former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, to dump the party for the PDP as “a clear vindication of its stand that the APC has sympathies for insurgents.”
PDP also said respectable Nigerians still in the APC would soon join the PDP as they had discovered that the agenda of the APC “is to promote violence and the personal agenda of a few unpatriotic individuals.”

PDP added that the decision of Femi Fani-Kayode to dump the APC where he was founding member for the PDP was a clear vindication of its stand that the opposition APC “is a party of bloodthirsty, religious and ethnic bigots averse to the unity of the country.”
PDP, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh also said “the revelation by the former minister that the APC has sympathies for insurgents further confirms PDP’s earlier position linking APC’s utterances to the spate of insurgency and sectarians violence in the country.”

It added: “We have now been vindicated. The truth may be hidden for sometime but it has a way of expressing itself. The world can now see that we do not speak for nothing when we describe them in their true nature; a cult, a hypocritical lot, wolves in sheep skin, devils who, through their utterances, stoke the fires of violence by night only to wear messianic robes in the morning to shed crocodile tears for their victims.”
PDP however said it remained committed to the national interest, adding that its doors were wide open to all well-meaning Nigerians, irrespective of religious, tribal, ethnic or regional affiliations.
