This was demonstrated on Friday when the party urged Tarabans in a statement to put aside their differences and thwart the state's incumbent PDP's efforts to form the next government in 2023.
“We are more irritated and perplexed by the whining and shameless views of some disgruntled PDP desperados who, instead of covering their faces and avoiding this nauseating spectacle, are busy poking their noses elsewhere,” the party's spokesperson, Aaron Artimas, said in a statement.
“For many years, the PDP and their allies in the society have taken advantage of people's fears by reserving for themselves the exclusive rights to protect their political and social interests. Now is the time to vanquish the fear that the PDP has instilled in order to repress and take advantage of our people.
“Fear is the main source of superstition and one of the main sources of cruelty. It is time to rise to the occasion and end their foul stranglehold on the state.”
The PDP was labeled a capitalist party by the APC, who said that capitalists have no sympathy for the underprivileged.
The candidate neither paid for the expression of interest and nomination forms nor underwent screening by the party's screening committee in Bauchi state, according to the PDP aggrieved governorship candidates who are currently calling for the disqualification of the PDP guber candidate.
“Let's jump ahead to 2022. Lt. Col. Kefas Agbu, who had previously served as the party's state chairman and had never purchased a ballot, unexpectedly declared himself a candidate for governor in the PDP's style.
It will be recalled that the APC recently accused the PDP of igniting the ongoing squabbling within the party, which has resulted in a number of lawsuits, through its candidate for governor, Senator Emmanuel Bwacha.
