The Peoples Democratic Party has described the All Peoples Congress as anti-people.

It says the recent action of the Governor of Edo State, Mr. Adams Oshiomhole, who is a member of the party as well as other alleged anti people utterances and illegalities by some of the leaders of the APC were lending weight to myriads of reasons that stand the APC? as the most unelectable political party in the present circumstances of national challenge.

A statement by the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Chief Olisa Metuh?on Sunday?in Abuja, flayed what he called the inherent contradictions in the alleged Messianic pretences of the APC against? its? lead role in the cascading anti people actions and utterances.

Metuh said: “What a double-faced political party the APC is! This minute, the APC evangelizes Nigerians on fine points of good governance and nationalism, claiming they are? the ones sent, while the next minute, the same APC leaders are caught with sharp sword on the soul of the nation.

?The actual meaning of APC is ?Anti People Congress? and this party?s main ideology is the dehumanization of Nigerians.

“This is a party that relishes not only in causing disaffection among Nigerians but in directly inflicting pains on them through tyrannical rule,? incitement of violence and bloodshed and imposition of heavy taxes in states under their unfortunate control.”

Metuh wondered why the governor of Edo State refused to listen to the plan by the widow, who he said prostrate at the feet of the? governor, pleading for leniency, but that this was not enough to? provoke? emotion,? leniency nor restraint on the part of the governor.

He? argued that the implication of the Edo scenario as captured in the “go and die” utterance of? Oshiomhole was that under the APC, there is no milk of human kindness, therefore, a warning to all down trodden Nigerians that a chastise of scorpion awaits them should the APC be in power at the centre.

He said: ?In taking laws into his hands and becoming the prosecutor and the judge only to confiscate the belongings of the widow, Oshiomhole betrayed APC?s disdain for? the the principles of rule of law as enshrined in our constitution and gave a glimpse of the recklessness and oppression that will be the order of the day if APC is allowed to hold power at any level in 2015.

?But for the prompt intervention of the PDP in Edo State which came to the rescue with financial lifeline, this widow would have added to the growing population of destitute created by the APC in states currently under their? control?.

Buttressing the fact that tyranny and fascism run deep in APC, Metuh? alluded to a recent statement credited to Mallam Nasiru El Rufai where he told Nigerians of other faith that he could impugn and mock their religion.

This, he said was in addition to spirited efforts by the APC to impoverish the people and destroy the unity and mutual love that exist among Nigerians.

Metuh said: ?Only recently, Nigerians witnessed the dehumanizing ‘ deportation’ of innocent citizens by the APC government of Lagos State.

“In flushing out these Nigerians living legitimately in Lagos like illegal immigrants the APC showed that it is a party completely lacking in brotherly love and national spirit.”

He also accused the states under the control of the APC of heavy borrowing,which he said has made the Debt Management Office to stop some of them from borrowing.
