The All Progressives Congress (APC), has claimed they are praying that the current leadership crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), does not lead to its crumbling.

It said: “we pray for them to put their house in order soon because we believe that democracy is better served when the opposition is alive.
“However, we also know the PDP can only begin to take steps towards recovery if they stop peddling conspiracy theories and blaming imaginary enemies.”
Abdullahi also denied claims made by the Ahmed Makarfi faction that they were behind the sealing-off of the International Conference Centre, venue of the faction’s stakeholders’ meeting.
“Neither of these allegations is true in any respect, the Police does not take instructions from the APC. have explained why they stopped the Makarfi group from meeting at the ICC.
“If the factional PDP is dissatisfied with the police explanation, they could seek further clarifications from the police or pursue alternative means of redress,” the APC said.
It added that so far, the Makarfi faction had not provided any proof of the allegations against the APC.
The statement added that this was “especially so considering that Makarfi and his group had in their ranks, individuals who are experienced to know that without evidence, such allegations can easily be dismissed as baseless.
“Such allegation without evidence can, therefore, be ignored by all right thinking members of the public, including the APC.”
