The Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has described the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a party of cowards whose leaders have become hypertensive due to fear of the PDP taking over governance of the state in 2015.

The state Publicity Secretary of the party, Taofik Gani, said it was surprised that “the APC, whose leaders do not have regards for party members have agreed, following public outcry to conduct a primary election where the governorship candidate of the party would emerge.

It said unlike the despotic rule in APC, the PDP has been subjecting all aspirants from the position of president to councillors to free, fair and credible primaries where the members are given the choice to select their preferred candidates.

The PDP said the party’s action has clearly shown to Lagosians that Tinubu’s influence is waning on a daily basis. His words are no longer law which will be obeyed without thinking. Lagosians are now wiser and are ready to break free of the bondage they have been subjected to by Tinubu and his cronies for the past 16 years”.

“PDP is the truly democratic party. The APC is peopled by pseudo-democrats who take pleasure in lording it over their members. That they have agreed to jettison the idea of fielding the candidate of the emperor and subjecting their aspirants to primaries shows they are jittery”.

“They are jittery of the fact that their members will reject the dictatorship and pitch their tent with the truly democratic party, PDP. They are scared that the aggrieved aspirants will team up with the PDP to dislodge them from office.

“If they are confident that the PDP is no threat, why can’t they go ahead and impose their preferred candidate on Lagosians and see if it will not have repercussions,” the party asked.
