Spokesperson of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Bolaji Abdullahi, has compared the ruling party to a new wife who is cooking in a kitchen that has been looted empty by her predecessor.
Mr. Abdullahi who is a former Minister of Youth and Sports in a statement released on Monday, said APC is “the new wife that is busy working at the kitchen that has been looted empty by the former wife”.
According to Abdullahi, a newspaper publication had recently quoted an unnamed former Minister comparing the PDP and the APC to a tale of two wives and that Nigerians have tried the two and had seen who was better.
Reacting to the comment in the statement, Abdullahi said “We find this metaphor quite interesting.
“We need to point out however that APC is the new wife that is busy working at the kitchen that has been looted empty by the former wife who had made away with the entire foodstuff and even the kitchen utensils.
“Nigerians know this. If the food is a little late in coming, they understand the circumstance. But if that other thieving wife now begins to argue that she was a better cook and should be brought back into the kitchen because the new wife is a slow cook, then that should pass for hypocrisy.
“No matter the temporary hardship that we may be experiencing, Nigerians know better than to bring PDP back to power so soon for fear that this time, they might disappear with the kitchen itself.
“We also note with regret, PDP’s penchant to mock President Muhammadu Buhari with his health situation.
“We admit that the health of a president is every citizen’s business. However, it is un-African, if not ungodly, to continue to taunt a man and even challenge him to a fight at his moment of weakness.
“We have seen in the last few days, some members of the PDP who have boasted to defeat President Buhari in 2019.
“We urge Nigerians to Google the names of these individuals and see what comes up. It is however understandable, even if not acceptable, that when the lion is enfeebled, even a rabbit would grow the temerity to tweak its tail.
“We urge Nigerians to remain resolute in support of the APC and President Muhammadu Buhari.
“We are confident that whatever difficulty we are going through at the moment is only a passing phase.”
