‘Only moles worthy to be discarded decamp to APC’ – PDP


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Niger State on Monday said members of the party who recently left the party for the All Progressives Congress (APC) are ‘moles that needed to be discarded.’

Chairman of the party in the state, Tanko Beji told journalists that those presented were members who had left the PDP immediately after the 2015 general elections and that the members were not contributing to the party and they needed to be discarded.

Beji also accused the APC of exaggerating the number of people who defected, saying the total number of the crowd at the Saturday rally was not even up to 5,000.

“The crowd was a rented crowd paid by the APC in order to distract attention of the people from their failures.

” We are not deterred by the ‘false claim’ of the APC. PDP remains the only credible party in Nigeria,” Beji said.

He explained further that the PDP is on a cleansing mission to rid the party of ‘moles’ who are only pursuing their personal interest and do not have any principles guiding them.

He however admitted that the PDP has made some mistakes in the past and is now making efforts to correct them.

DAILY POST recalls that Alhaji Aminu Yusuf, Deputy Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Niger state and 35,000 members recently decamped to APC recently in Minna.
