As the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, cries out over perceived acts of injustice against it by the All Progressives Congress, a former National Chairman of All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Chief Victor Umeh, has said that the former ruling party had no moral justification to make such claims.
Rather, Mr. Umeh said the PDP ought to cover its head in shame for what it did to the country in the 16 years of its reign.
“What PDP did to Nigeria in 16 years it was in power is the greatest disservice to democracy”, Mr. Umeh told reporters in Enugu yesterday.
The former APGA chairman, who won an appeal on Monday, challenging the decision of the National and State Assembly Elections Petition Tribunal in Anambra State to uphold the election of Uche Ekwunife as senator representing Anambra Central Senatorial District, insisted that he won the poll but the PDP manipulated the process with impunity.
The Appeal Court sitting in Enugu ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to conduct re-run elections in the district within 90 days.
While mocking PDP over its complaints on the outcome of the Kogi and Bayelsa state governorship polls, Umeh said “even though the All Progressives Congress, APC, has not been brutal as they were, the PDP members are now weeping”.
“PDP promoted electoral banditry, so, I am surprised that they are now crying wolf. They are made up of hypocrites. The PDP’s time has just ended, it should be dismantled”, Chief Umeh added.
