A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dele Momodu said the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is doing everything possible to destabilise the opposition.

Momodu stated this in an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Thursday.

The PDP chieftain accused the ruling party of plotting to crush the opposition.

He said, “APC will do everything possible to destroy opposition; buy those who are buyable, to terrorise those who are not buyable and make sure that the party is in disarray, that is all.”

Momodu said President Bola Tinubu is stifling the opposition even after thriving as an opposition leader before his party overtook power from the PDP government.

“You see part of my admiration for then Governor Bola Ahmed Tinubu in Lagos was the role he played as an opposition leader.

“But unfortunately, now we have a former opposition leader in government, and they don’t want opposition, it’s an irony,” he said.

Momodu, however, said he is optimistic that the PDP will resolve its issues and bounce back as a strong opposition party.

The PDP chieftain said the party’s presidential candidate in 2023, Atiku Abubakar, is already making moves to bring every member of the party together to forge ahead as a strong family.

Recall that the main opposition party has been hit with crisis following the its presidential election primary in 2023 and its consequent loss at the 2023 general elections.

The long-running crisis in the PDP saw some of its members exiting the party, with the former governor of Imo State, Emeka Ihedioha resigning from the party recently.

Ihedioha said he resigned due to inability of the party to play the role of opposition as expected.

He said everything going wrong in the PDP is engineered by APC, adding that the ruling party has bought over some PDP members to disrupt the party.
