The national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Iyorchia Ayu, has received a warning from the All Progressives Congress (APC) not to distribute untrue information about the party.
Tuesday, Felix Morka, the national publicity secretary for the APC, issued a warning to this effect.
According to Anaedoonline.ng, Ayu previously denied making the claim that Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers state, is unable to father children.
The former Senate President disassociated himself from the social media posts that quoted him as denigrating Wike in a statement on Saturday.
In response to Ayu’s comments, the APC claimed that the PDP chairman had claimed that nefarious members of the opposition party had spread false information about him and Wike to the media.
According to Morka, Ayu’s mentality is the reason the PDP crisis has gotten worse while he has been in charge.
He emphasized that the government does not spread false information or engage in the internal affairs of other parties.
He said, “As he struggled to deny a statement credited to him that Governor Wike could not father a child, Ayu alleged, ridiculously, that the APC and “other mischievous people” were planting such stories in the media and stoking the feud between him and the Rivers State Governor.
“Understandably, Chairman Ayu is deep in quicksand and swinging wildly in search of third parties to blame for the internal combustion in the party that he leads. With such an escapist mindset, it is not difficult to see why the meltdown in the PDP has proven intractable on his watch. Lacking forthrightness and character to accept responsibility for the crisis in his party, how can he possibly resolve it?”
“That is an area of extreme and unrivaled competence of the PDP. In any event, the PDP is unraveling unstoppably and needs no help from the outside.”
He continued by advising the PDP to stop making unfounded charges and concentrate on repairing the party’s rift.
Morka questioned why the opposition, which had failed to bring discipline to its own ranks, believed it was qualified to lead the nation.
“After 16 years of ruthless misgovernance and crass failure to reform and reposition itself, quite frankly, the PDP stands morally disqualified from asking Nigerians for their votes in the next general election,” he said.
