The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described the members registration exercise of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as fake, designed to allocate false figures.
Recall that the ruling APC had announced that it was extended its membership registration by another three weeks.
This online newspaper reports that this is the second time the ruling party was extended its registration across the country.
Reacting in a statement by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP said Nigerians are not decieved by the fake exercise the APC is currently engaged in.
“The PDP asserts that the moves by the APC to declare another extension of the phoney membership registration, confirms that the entire exercise is a mere sitting room manipulation designed to produce a bogus membership figure,” the opposition party said.
“Our party has nothing but pity for the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led APC Caretaker Committee, which has become overweighed by the burden of producing an inflated membership register, following the rejection of the APC by Nigerians.
“This is especially as the public is already aware of the disagreements among APC leaders over allocation of figures, which led to the bloody clashes that trailed the failed exercise in many states of the federation
“APC ought to know that the game is over, after Nigerians rejected their monetary inducement of N10,000 per registration, even after they offered night registration in some state.
“The PDP counsels the APC leadership to note that further extension of the botched exercise cannot attract the sympathy of Nigerians or give any credence to any fake figure they intend to come out with.”
The PDP urged the APC leadership to listen to the voice of reasons coming from elders of their party like former Governor Bisi Akande, and end “this dance of shame”.
“In any case, our party will, at the appropriate time, expose all the shenanigans of the APC, including the roles played by desperate individual APC leaders in this attempt to beguile Nigerians with a fictitious membership register,” it added.
