Chief spokesman of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Festus Keyamo has taken a swipe at the People’s Democratic Party over the crisis it is battling with that has left the party divided and unfocused on its political campaign.
This is coming on the back of the allies of Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State pulling put of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council on the insistence that the National Chairman of the party, Iyorchia Ayu resigns.
Keyamo mocked the party over its vaunted ability to rescue the country yet cannot rescue its party from the crisis rocking it.
The spokesman who is also the Minister of State for Labour and Employment took to Twitter on Wednesday to deride the PDP.
“The PDP that’s in crises because of its inability to control its billowing umbrella gathers everyday and the first thing you hear them say is that they want to ‘rescue’ Nigeria; like a teenager whose legs cannot find the clutch of a car wanting to drive a trailer! ‘No be juju be that?” Keyamo’s tweet reads.
The PDP has since May when the party’s presidential primary election took place been enmeshed in what appears an “unresolvable” crisis with Ayu not willing to give in to the demands of Wike and other chieftains of the party calling for his resignation.
The intractable and prolonged internal crisis has posed clogs in the wheel of the party as it keeps getting distracted with power struggles within it that has threatened its chances of staging a meaningful contest especially with electoral campaigns set to begin in a few days.
