The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP on Sunday alleged that the rulling All Progressives Congress, APC has become insensitive to the violence and bloodletting that is now plaguing Nigeria.
The opposition party said the APC has clearly demonstrated that it was not a political party but a conglomeration of strange bedfellows.
The new National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Debo Ologun-Agba, said this in an interview with newsmen, in Abuja.
He said, “…about numbness to violence, numbness to bloodshed. Anywhere in the world that you find a leadership that is true leadership, they won’t go on vacation during a crisis.
“When destruction happens to countries, a president of that country is expected to step forward as a consoler-in-chief. But in Nigeria, there is an absolute lack of leadership. That is why 40,50 people die every day and it looks normal. We have a leadership that has gone on vacation; Nigeria is disintegrating under a retired general, what an irony.
He continued, “A president who does not care. When people are killed rather than sympathize, they blame them. You recall farmers that were killed in their farms some time ago; somebody said they didn’t get permission to go to their farms. What inhuman people do we have in leadership?
“But I said Nigerians know better and they want to change. It is important that I say something clearly- the APC is not a party. It is a conglomeration of strange bedfellows.
“That is why you find out that everything that they do is consistent with their confusion. Because, they are strange bedfellows, no consensus, no ideology, no common purpose, no common mission. Therefore, it is very difficult for them to come together. There is an irreconcilable difference between them.”
Ologun-Agba said that on the other hand, the PDP has demonstrated that it has all it takes to return Nigeria back on track.
