- The APC advises the PDP to change name and re-brand
- The spokesperson of the APC, Bolaji Abdullahi, says the opposition brand of politics is based open incitements
- APC accuses Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state of playing politics with the health challenges of President Buhari
The All Progressive Congress (APC) has advised the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to rebrand its image before thinking of returning to power in 2019.
The spokesperson of the APC, Bolaji Abdullahi speaking on the background of the resolution of the PDP leadership crisis on Sunday, July 16, called on the PDP to heed the counsel of the former Akwa Ibom State governor, Obong Victor Attah for an urgent change of name on the basis that the PDP brand was already damaged beyond repair.
The APC accused the opposition of promoting a brand of politics that was based on allegation mongering and open incitements of separatist agitations across the country.
The ruling party stated that it would be unfair to expect the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to fulfil its campaign promises within four years in office, arguing that a manifesto is not a four-year programme.
“We want Nigerians, not just the PDP, to hold us accountable for every promise contained in our manifesto. We only urge them to be fair. A manifesto is not a four-year programme. If PDP had fully implemented its manifesto in the 16 years that it was in power, Nigerians would not have been attracted to the APC promise of change in 2015, because there would have been little left to promise," the party said.

The APC also accused Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state of playing politics with the health challenge of President Buhari who is undergoing medical treated in the United Kingdom (UK).
Meanwhile, an APC member in Imo state, Jones Onwuasoanya, has hinted that some members of the PDP in the state are set to join the APC because of the recent decision of the Supreme Court concerning the authentic faction of the main opposition party.
NAIJ.com had reported on Wednesday, July 12 that the Supreme Court authenticated the Ahmed-Makarfi group as the legal faction of the PDP.
While many of the party chieftains have been calling for reconciliation after the apex court judgement, some of those loyal to Sheriff might be on their way out.
