In a statement in Lagos on Thursday, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has officially denied the allegation by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that the Director-General of the DSS, Mr. Lawal Daura, is a card-carrying member of the party (APC), calling the accusation absurd and frivolous.
In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the APC challenged the PDP to publish any evidence it may have to confirm the allegation, adding ”after all, it is trite that he who alleges must prove.”
”In the absence of that, the PDP must call another press conference to publicly apologize to all Nigerians for engaging in barefaced lies,” it said.
APC expressed shock that the PDP has started exhibiting all the symptoms of hallucination so soon after its gravy train derailed, saying it’s obvious that the party has now started hearing voices.
”We know that the psyche of the PDP has been badly affected by its loss of power at the centre. Even the party itself has admitted that much. That situation has now been compounded by the fact that the party is broke. It is therefore not a surprise that it is no longer able to think straight. The reality of its new situation is just beginning to dawn on it.
”But we warned the PDP early on that being in opposition is not a walk in the park. We warned that while the party was used to eating its bread with butter on both sides, it will now be lucky to even have bread to it,” the party said.
It warned the PDP to spend more time in patching its tattered and battered umbrella than acting as a cog in the wheel of progress of the new administration.
