The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says Nigerians are already counting down to May 29, 2023, when the second term of President Muhammadu Buhari will come to an end.
According to the party, both the APC and the Buhari administration will be consigned to “the dustbin of history”.
The Party Chairman, Kola Ologbondiyan, said this in a statement on Thursday, while reacting to comments by the embattled APC Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, over an alleged third term bid by the president.
“Of course, Nigerians need not be reminded, of the exit date of an administration that has caused them so much pains, abused our law, trampled on their rights and undermined our electoral process,” Ologbondiyan said.
“It would interest Oshiomhole to know that if anything, Nigerians are already counting days for May 29, 2023, when the APC and the Buhari administration will be consigned to the dustbin of history”.

Oshiomhole had, however, said that the rumoured third term bid of President Muhammadu Buhari was actually planted by the PDP.
The embattled party Chairman who addressed State House correspondents after a closed-door meeting with President Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Thursday stressed that most Nigerians are yet to forget what the PDP tried to do to promote the third term agenda while in power.
The presidency has also severally re-iterated that President Buhari has no plans to remain in power after the 2023 elections.
But the PDP insists that the party has other intentions. It, however, stressed that there is nothing they the (APC) can do to stop the party from fizzling out, come 2023.
“The PDP has counselled the embattled National Chairman of the fizzling APC, Adams Oshiomhole, to stop pushing the APC third term discourse in the public space,” the party said.
“The party further counsels Oshiomhole to desist from going to the Presidential villa to push the impossible as such will not save him from the axe of suspension dangling over his political head or his inescapable prosecution over allegations… of corruption and mismanagement of Edo state resources while he was governor of that state.
“The PDP further noted that such mission to the Villa, like the one Oshiomhole made today, will also not save the APC from fizzling before 2023, as even alluded to by President Muhammadu Buhari in his apprehensions about the gloomy future of the APC.
“Mr Oshiomhole should, therefore, stop sounding like a broken brass in his attempt to launder a failed merchandise”.
