PDP, APC accusess each other of Religious Campaigns
« on: February 20, 2015, 01:45:55 PM »
The All Progressives Congress, APC and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, were yesterday locked in a war of words over alleged plans to use religion to promote each other's political campaign.

The APC was the first to raise alarm over what it claimed was a plan by some "desperate politicians" to incite religious sensibilities through the circulation of provocative leaflets in mosques and churches purportedly "asking Muslims to only vote for Muslims in the forthcoming elections."

Though the party did not cite any political party, it nevertheless made references to earlier claims by Vice President Namadi Sambo that the PDP was more of a Muslim party and that the running mate of the APC candidate is a Christian pastor who has more than 5,000 churches.

The PDP in its response pointedly accused the APC of crying wolf when, according to it, it had been caught in its own devices. The ruling party alleged that the APC's cry was the result of the leakage of its own plans.
