The Deputy National Chairman (North) of the All Progressives Congress, Senator Lawal Shuaibu, has described the People Democratic Party as a crippled political organization that can never pose threat to the ruling party.
He said Nigerians were wise enough now not to gamble with their destiny to bring the former ruling PDP to power again.
The party chieftain told newsmen during the weekend that the APC had done credibly well such that 2019 general elections would be a walkover for them.
His words, “The APC was never crippled and can never see a crippled party as a threat. They are in no way a threat to us. Instead, they are still crawling from the wounds of defeat we inflicted on them and I can assure you they need to do a lot to recuperate.
“If you want to know the level of confidence we have on the renewal of our mandate in 2019, just watch the reaction of the majority of Nigerians, especially the youths, when President Buhari returned from his medical vacation.
“This is because they know their future is being catered for. We must always remember that the APC came into government because Nigerians elected to reject the PDP. Now, tell me, what has changed in that party?
“Nigerians are no fools; they may not be your privileged few on social media, indeed, they are your voiceless majority, they don’t suffer selective amnesia the way some of you, privileged ones, do.”
