The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has told the All Progressives Congress, APC and the Nigeria Police to stop fighting a lost battle, saying they can’t stop mass defection of APC members to its fold across the country.

Condemning Police attack on the Ondo deputy governor, Agboola Ajayi, the PDP in a statement Sunday, by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan called on the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, to caution his men against dabbling into partisan politics.

The deputy governor is having irreconcilable differences with his boss, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, and is said to be perfecting plans to dump the ruling APC for the leading opposition, PDP. But Police officers led by the Ondo State Commissioner of Police, Mr Bolaji Salami, reportedly stopped him from moving out of his official quarters at the government house on Saturday, following his frosty relationship with Akeredolu.

The PDP in a statement said,

“The thoughtless and rude attempt to use the Police to stop the Ondo Deputy Governor from leaving the disorganized APC is symptomatic of the last kicks of a degraded and derelict political party that is now clutching at straws and can only resort to use of compromised security agents as face-saving measure.

“The APC is unnerved because Nigerians are no longer ready to stomach the deception and lies of 2015 as well as the impunity, political brigandage and the electoral fraud of 2019.

“The IGP Adamu must note that Nigerians have not forgotten and are no longer ready to accept the kind of atrocities that characterized previous elections under the APC, including the use of Police helicopter to assault and chase away voters in the November 16, 2019 Kogi state governorship election.
