2019: Buhari, Oshiomhole Jittery Over PDP Coalition; APC Says PDP End is Near

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Sunday said the duo of President Muhammadu Buhari and National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, have become jittery over the mega coalition between the PDP and 38 other political groups, with just seven months to the 2019 general elections.
This is even as the APC said that the threat by the PDP to boycott the 2019 general elections was borne out of the fact that the opposition party now understands that its end is near.
The PDP said Oshiomhole’s resort to insults directed at the PDP betrays “the confusion of a depressed politician seeking to cover his personal vacuity and inner fears of the inevitable defeat awaiting President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC in 2019.”
In a statement issued by the PDP spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party took a swipe at what it termed the hypocrisy of Oshiomhole who had earlier dismissed members of the Reformed All Progressives Congress (R-APC) as ‘inconsequential’ but later paid a nocturnal visit to its chairman, Buba Galadima in what appeared a fence-mending gesture.
“The PDP holds nothing but pity for Oshiomhole, who is now licking his own vomit by going around cap in hand and begging the same compatriots whom he earlier called names like ‘inconsequential’, ‘hungry birds’ and ‘tired feet’, not to leave his sinking party.
“Unfortunately for Oshiomhole and his presidential sponsor, events of the weeks ahead will clear all doubts that APC is dead and that Oshiomhole is just an undertaker, whose job is to cremate the derelict contraption by oppressors, who are falsely hailing themselves as messiahs.
“What Oshiomhole and President Buhari, in their fantasy trip, fail to understand is that those they seek to draw into the cave are already aware of the story of the sick lion and that all animals that went visiting never returned. They know that the tiger does not offer his back for a ride without a price.
“Very soon Oshiomhole and President Buhari would find themselves alone in the cursed ‘Black Pearl’ that the APC has irredeemably become.
“While we understand Oshiomhole’s frustration over his inability to stop the coalition, the fact remains that he and President Buhari are fighting a lost battle in trying to destroy it,” the statement read in part.
In reaction to the threat by the PDP to boycott the 2019 election, Oshiomhole said the party has come to its end.
He stated this at the weekend when he received the report of the Gov. Abdulaziz Yari-led Governorship Primary Election Committee for Osun state.
While he declared that the ruling party was not desperate with regards to the next general elections, Oshiomhole added that the PDP has continued to press the panic button because its rigging machine has been dismantled while it no longer had free access to federal resources.
“Let me also use this opportunity to comment on what l read about the PDP Chairman. I heard him threatening that they may boycott the 2019 general elections. When a rabbit in the afternoon jumps out of its hole, not because the hunter has come to smoke it out and it is running, you will know that it has already seen its end.
“The truth is that we are not desperate, we have worked hard to defeat PDP while they were in power, when they had no faction, when all the founding fathers and founding mothers were in the same house. Nigerian people rejected them on account of 16 years of absolute miss-rule at the peak of our property as a nation when oil sold for $140 per barrel and we came in when oil price has dropped. If with all those huge revenue that accrued to them, people complained of bad roads whether from the South to East from the North to the West, they have nothing new to offer to the Nigerian people.
“I think they are haunted by their own ghost and this is because they had perpetrated a do-or-die politics and they are on record that election matters are do-or-die affairs. One of their old men was recorded as saying that they perfected the language of rigging.
“Now, their rigging machines have been dismantled and their problem is how can they survive without it. The glue that held them together, which was cheap money from the treasury, again that has been cut off and what they already have, like a typical village sheep they may be chewing it all day, all night; now after three and half years, it almost seems that they have finished all they had taken and now they are worried”, he said.
