The People's Democratic Party, PDP, on Sunday fired back at the Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, saying the opposition party was a threat to the country's democracy.

In a statement issued in Lagos on Sunday morning by the ACN National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party called on all lovers of democracy within and outside Nigeria to join in the efforts to stop the PDP and its cohorts from truncating the nation's democracy.

"Having misgoverned Nigeria since the country's return to democratic rule in 1999, the PDP, realizing that its time is up, has now resorted to a dangerous game aimed at either keeping the party in power at all costs or crashing the country's democracy. This is a dangerous game that must be stopped, with the good people of Nigeria, not just the progressives, leading the charge," he said.

But Olisa Metuh, PDP's National Publicity Secretary in a statement made available to DailyPost accused the ACN of always blaming the ruling party for its misfortune.

Metuh, also mocked the All Progressive Congress for its inability to register with the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

According to him, "Our attention has been drawn to inciting and unpatriotic statements by the ACN, seeking as usual, to heat up the polity and put Nigerians at loggerheads with one another, all in the desperate lust for power for selfish reasons."


The spokesman said, the "ACN has shown that it is the real threat to Nigerian democracy" adding that "they are unyielding in their plot to truncate the system with propaganda, lies and media deceit because they have been rejected by Nigerians."

"Nigerians have since realized their evil desires and have continued to answer them with overwhelming support for the PDP in elections, the recent being the FCT elections where PDP won five out of the six area councils with the ACN getting none."

He asked the ACN spokesman, Lai Mohammed to be bold enough to tell Nigerians the relationship between his party and the Chief Press Secretary to the INEC Chairman, Mr. Kayode Idowu, "We await his kind explanation in this regard," he said.

"Let the ACN continue chasing shadows with their incompetent approach to politics including making mountains of a mere name registration, while we continue to win the hearts and minds of the voting public. Nigerians are not fools," the statement concluded.
