A statement by former Governor of Borno State, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff that the All Progressives Congress (APC) will rule the country for the next 40 years has gotten a reply from the Peoples Democratic Party.
 
Sheriff, a former PDP member had said that APC will retain power in 2023 and continue to lead the country for the next 30-40 years.
 
Speaking with reporters on Sunday in Abuja, Sheriff stated that in order for the party to remain in power, all party chieftains must work together and settle all their differences.
 
But in a statement issued by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, on Monday, the PDP described Sheriff as a joker for wishing that APC will remain in power for the next 50 years.
 
The opposition party added that the ruling party will be voted out of power in 2023 due to its bloodletting, killings, violations, corruption and economic hardship in the country’s polity.
 
The statement reads: “The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has told the former Governor of Borno state, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, to perish the thoughts of All Progressives Congress (APC) ruling for 40 years, as Nigerians are resolute in their decision not to allow the APC and its associated bloodletting, killings, violations, corruption and economic hardship in our polity, beyond May 29, 2023.

‘The PDP’s position is predicated on the arrogant and reckless assertion by Sheriff that their aspiration is to continue to foist APC in government for the next 40 years, in defiance of the decision by Nigerians to do away with their party by 2023.

“Ali Modu Sheriff must know that Nigerians are aware of the desperate plots by the APC and its members that are behind acts of terrorism, banditry, treasury looting, violation of rights and electoral manipulations in our country, to continue to enjoy official cover using the APC as a platform for their reprehensible activities.

“Nigerians have decided to kick out the APC in the 2023 general election and no amount of manipulations or evil machination can sway that resolve to ensure that the APC does not stay a day beyond May 29, 2023.
 
“The PDP therefore has nothing but pity for Ali Modu Sheriff and his co-travellers as the conspiracies against our dear nation will surely come to nought.”
