The Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) has accused the PDP of suffering from delusion of grandeur by saying it is the reason that Nigeria's democracy has not collapsed.
In a statement issued in Ibadan on Thursday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said if the truth must be told, the PDP is the main problem hindering the growth of democracy in Nigeria, no thanks to its anti-democratic antics, election manipulation tendencies, lack of respect for the rule of law and total disregard of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, just to mention a few.
''Mr. President, the reason Nigeria's democracy has survived thus far is not the robustness of the PDP, as you have said, but the determination and courage of the good people of Nigeria, who have resolved to say 'never again' to anti-democratic forces, as well as the robust opposition mounted by a few progressive forces...
''Were it left for the PDP, this democracy as we know it would have become history. This is the party that has weakened all the institutions that are indispensable to building a virile democracy, from the judiciary to the legislature. This is the party that has sought to emasculate the opposition by infiltrating their ranks and coercing them into a fake unity government.
This is the party that does not believe in one man, one vote, but will rather engage in do-or-die politics to win at all cost,.
''Above all, the PDP is the party that has frittered away the commonwealth since 1999 and failed woefully to deliver the dividends of democracy, thus shaking the belief of an increasing number of our citizens in democracy as a system of governance,'' it said.
