Is PDP Using Dollars To Bribe House of Reps Members?

This news was gotten from
PDP has gone to court to challenge the decision of its members to dump the party and join the APC but they do not have enough confidence in their case in court, at least that's how it appears giving their desperation.

The All Progressives Congress has accused the Peoples Democratic Party of using public funds to lure back a handful of the federal lawmakers who have defected from the party to the All Progressives Congress, and thus condemned what it called political horse trading carried too far.
"Nigerians can now see why their country has gone broke; why the allocation to states from the Federation Account has continued to dwindle, and why infrastructures have either remained decrepit or non-existent. It is not difficult to imagine the number of boreholes that 10 million dollars can sink, or how far such a huge amount will go in building cottage hospitals and health clinics.

"'Things are bound to get worse in the days ahead because the desperate PDP will, more and more, use public funds to try to change the course of history. We therefore urge Nigerians to remain resolute in the face of what will be a wave of inducements never before seen in these climes, because there is no going back on the plan to vote out the PDP next year and save Nigeria from a rapacious and inept leadership."

In a statement issued on Tuesday by its Interim National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the APC said PDP, in an unprecedented show of desperation, has rolled out a mouth-watering enticement package that promises 2 million US dollars to each Senator who returns to the PDP; 1 million US dollars to each member of the House of Reps, and 10 million dollars to each 'leader' who abandons the APC for PDP.

But the APC said there is no cause for alarm, as no amount of inducements will stop the change that is now in the horizon, because the long-suffering people of Nigeria are ready and eager to vote out the PDP next year.

The party said the 5 House of Reps members who have taken PDP's killer bait when they defected to APC, were not given any incentive beyond the rare opportunity offered them to be a part of the looming change.
