2015: PDP Censures APC Over Hiring Foreign Campaign Strategist

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has flayed the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) for the employment of a foreign campaign consultant, describing the move as slighting for Nigerian professionals who are capable of handling such job description.

The PDP, noting that the new development in the APC was bringing back imperialism to the country,urged Nigerians to resist such attempt by the party to drag the nation back to imperialism, 54 years after independence.

In a statement by the National Publicity Secretary,  Olisa Metuh, the PDP said: “In engaging the services of a foreign firm, the APC has shown that it does not have faith in our people, our indigenous consultancy firms and the well qualified, world acclaimed Nigerian professionals and technocrats.

“Just as the leopard cannot change its spots, so also is the APC which cannot hide its true colour as an anti-people organisation, tied to the apron string of foreign interests in utter disdain for fellow  Nigerians and the age long clamour for local content. That APC has an inner contempt for Nigerians is no longer hidden. Its latest action is not only an affront to nationalism but a weird embrace of neo-colonialism at a time national pride and assertiveness have assumed a rule of engagement in global politics.

“We are afraid that neo-colonialism is the guiding ethos of the APC’s quest to rule Nigeria.  It is now apparent that the leadership of this opposition party may have perfected plans to use same foreign interests to siphon national resources and reverse the pro-national socio-economic foundation laid by the founding fathers of Nigeria.”
