The Alliance for Democracy (AD) has said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has introduced an unhealthy form of opposition inimical to the survival of democracy in Nigeria.
The party also said the PDP leaders should go back to the drawing board and study the role of opposition parties, stressing that they had been in power for 16 years but still lack the basic tenets and principles of opposition politics.
Speaking with Daily Trust yesterday in Abuja, AD national chairman, Rafiu Salau, said it was wrong for the PDP senators to stage a walk-out during the screening of former governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi, arguing that the screening was not strictly a party affair but a national assignment which required collective assessment by senators.
The AD chairman said the PDP should introduce policies and programmes that would win the confidence of the masses and shun “negative tendencies” capable of jeopardising democracy and President Muhammadu Buhari’s transformation agenda.
The AD chieftain said the All Progressives Congress (APC) won elections because of the personality of its then presidential candidate [Buhari], sound strategies and acceptance by the people, stressing that the PDP, if it wants to bounce back in 2019 as it has consistently said,  most emphasise issue-based opposition.
