Festus Keyamo, Director of Strategic Communications for the re-election campaign of President Muhammadu Buhari, has claimed that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), will “suck in” other parties it signed a memorandum with on Monday.
R-APC, a faction of ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), signed a memorandum with PDP and other parties ahead of the general elections.
The main objective of the agreement is to defeat President Buhari in 2019.
Reacting, Keyamo said: “Some political parties made up of just husband & wife have signed an MOU with PDP to form a ‘grand coalition’ against PMB in 2019. This is pure deceit.
“PDP has only succeeded in registering a few more members into its fold. It’s not a ‘grand coalition’. It’s just membership drive.
“Nobody is deceived: In 2013 four MAJOR parties with ELECTED govs & parliamentarians fused into ONE whole.
“The comedy we are seeing now is that PDP have sucked in those ‘briefcase’ parties who are going to drop their identities & support a PDP CANDIDATE. It’s laughable desperation,” Keyamo wrote on Twitter.
