The wee hours of yesterday witnessed Cross River-born, Atlanta-based Development Economist, Mr Princewill Odidi, embark on a vitriol against the All Progressives Congress (APC).
These are his exact statements, ‘APC is becoming the new PDP. We are watching. Old wine in new wine skin.’
ex-President Obasanjo had recently taken a swipe at the APC led Federal Government 
The above statement has been adjudged by Mr Odidi’s fans as been ambiguous. For instance, New York-based Mr. Peter Offem Ubi queried, ‘Can you please expand on your reasoning behind this new thinking of yours bro’? But, Mr Odidi didn’t avail his fan any explanation.
National Leader of the APC, Tinubu, is in serious battle with party leadership
The APC is a ruling party in Nigeria’s national politics. However, in Cross River State it’s an opposition party with PDP governing. So, when Odidi says the ‘APC is becoming the new PDP’, how does he mean? Is he referring to APC as ruling party in national politics or APC as an opposition party in Cross River? Or, is he referring to both?

Is Odidi’s vague remark connected with Gov. Ayade’s rumoured defection into the APC and the fact that this perceived decamping is allegedly aided by chieftains of the party in the state? Is PDP’s Governor Ayade’s defection into the APC, the new PDP Odidi is referring to? Or, is the aiding of the PDP governor by chieftains into the APC the new PDP?

Recalling that Odidi had explained that he won’t meddle into Ayade’s administration of the state for obvious reasons, his remark may suggests that he wishes to keep to his principle, but still feels a strong compulsion to speak out.

Or, could it be said that since the APC had promised to deal with corruption, insecurity and an ailing economy during the 2015 general elections, and may be failing, Odidi’s acidulous remark is directed against APC nationally?
How we wish this social commentator will lay bare the cards on the table!
