Continuing the series of political jabs at each other, the APC issued a statement criticising their opponent, the PDP’s, spokesperson, Olisa Metuh’s personal attacks on his APC counterpart.

The statement was issued in Lagos on Saturday by the APC national publicity secretary, Lai Mohammed.
“With a combustible and out-of-control spokesman like Metuh, there is no way the PDP will survive in opposition,” the statement read. “Metuh has shown, time and again, that he lacks the temperament, presence of mind, sobriety, analytical mind, decency in the use of language and panache needed for anyone to be the face of any organisation, not to talk of a political party.
“It was the realization of this obvious fact that made us to offer to provide the excitable Metuh a crash course on how to function as an opposition spokesman. Unfortunately, it is too late now as he seems to have become totally untrainable.
“Instead of reacting to our sincere advice to his party to urgently rebrand or go down, Metuh chose to unleash his vitriolic tongue on the APC spokesman, just as he has done to the judiciary and many agencies of government in recent times.
“In what is surely a looming tragedy for the PDP, a spokesman who helped write the party into opposition is now poised to further write it into extinction.
“The doomed opposition should also immediately stop its failed strategy of trying to distract the Buhari administration, which is busy cleaning up the mess left behind by the 16 years of locust of the sinking PDP,” the APC said.
The two parties have earlier exchanged mutual accusation that followed a similar pattern.
“Stop throwing juvenile tantrums against everyone, especially the judiciary. Stop wasting your energy on frivolous accusations. Learn how to communicate your thoughts to Nigerians in a more civilized way and put your shoulder to the wheel if you want to reincarnate as a force to be reckoned with in our country’s political firmament,” the APC stated yesterday.
Retaliating, the PDP branded Lai Mohammed as “completely unfit” to hold a responsible national office in a democratic cabinet.
