Leave Politics and Start a Rice farm, APC tells PDP over review of Buhari Supreme Court victory


The All Progressive congress APC has asked the Peoples Democratic Party members to start off a Rice Farm to be useful.

Earlier The Peoples Democratic Party on Monday asked the Supreme Court to review its judgment, which upheld the victory of the President l Muhammadu Buhari, in the 2019 presidential election and dismissed the appeal of the PDP candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has reacted to the call by Nigeria’s main opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) demanding the review of the Supreme Court judgement on the 2019 presidential election.

The ruling party in reaction to PDP’s call urged members of the opposition party at their national secretariat to take up rice farming in order to feel useful as a result of their joblessness.

The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mallam Larne Issa-Onilu, in an interview with The PUNCH,  said,  “We will advise people at the Wadata House to return to the farm. This administration is looking for ways of making this nation food sufficient.

“So, if our friends in Wadata House (PDP National Secretariat) don’t have what to do, they will do well by returning to the farm to farm rice for our people to consume.

“Where is the relationship between the judgment of Bayelsa and that of the presidential election? In the case of the president, we called witnesses.

“Witnesses from Cambridge and WAEC (West African Examination Council) testified and the court ruled in our favour. In the case of Bayelsa, did they (PDP) call any witnesses? We have so many challenges requiring attention in this country other than responding to the whims of an opposition party.”

Also, in a  statement later on Monday evening, Issa-Onilu said the call by the PDP exposed the opposition party as a joke.

He said, “For the All Progressives Congress, the  PDP’s latest antics are not surprising. Nigerians will recall that we have consistently reiterated that the opposition party, having been overwhelmingly rejected at the polls in 2015 and 2019, has been exhibiting strange behaviour.

“We believe it has been difficult for some leaders of the PDP to cope for so long outside of power. There is obviously a lot of idleness at the Wadata House Secretariat of the  PDP.”
