The All Progressives Congress (APC) has challenged Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, over his comment that some Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential aspirants were working for the ruling party.
APC through its spokesman, Yekini Nabena, said it was understandable that the PDP in its despair over the 2019 election bid had resorted to comical conspiracy.
A statement he signed on Sunday said: “Instead of putting its house in order, it is laughable that Governor Wike and his PDP cohorts are clutching on straws it their desperate bid to remain in public reckoning in the face of imminent 2019 defeat.
“Meanwhile, we challenge Governor Wike to be brave enough and name the APC-sponsored aspirants among the crowd that have signified interest to run for the presidency under the PDP.
“We urge the PDP to quickly wake up to the reality that the 2019 presidential elections have been won and lost.
“The PDP is a dead party and we urge its members who share our progressive ideals to leave the sinking and rudderless ship and come over to the APC which is rebuilding and repositioning the country in all facets.”
