The All Progressives Congress (APC) has called on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to engage in rice farming as a way out of its current joblessness rather than attempting to ask the Supreme Court to review the 2019 general elections judgment.
Lanre Issa-Onilu, the APC’s spokesman, mocked the PDP in a statement issued on Monday.
Okay.ng reports that the PDP had during press briefing in Abuja that it will approach the Supreme Court to review its judgment of the 2019 presidential election.
The party also said this applies to the Kaduna, Kano, Kastina and Osun governorship elections.
Reacting to this, Issa-Onilu said: “At this period that our government is working hard to ensure food sufficiency in the country, we urge those jobless characters at the Wadata House to seriously consider taking up rice farming. This would make them useful for our country.”
Onilu said the call by the PDP, asking the Supreme Court to review its rulings on the Presidential Election and governorship elections in Osun, Kano, Kaduna and Katsina States, “has, once again, exposed the joke the opposition party has turned itself into in our nation’s political space”.
According to the ruling party, never in the history of Nigeria’s democratic journey has a political party made mockery of what a responsible opposition politics entails.
“The PDP’s call has once again, reinforced our party’s belief that the PDP has become a clog in the wheels of our country’s political evolution”.
“For the All Progressives Congress (APC), PDP’s latest antics is no surprise. Nigerians would recall that we have consistently reiterated that the opposition party, having been overwhelmingly rejected at the polls in 2015 and 2019, has been exhibiting strange behaviours.
“We believe it has been difficult for some leaders of PDP to cope for so long outside of power. There is obviously a lot of idleness at the Wadata House Secretariat of PDP”, he added
