APC vs PDP @DemolaRewaju’s thread on twitter
Demola Olanrewaju is a political strategist and one of the most vocal voices of PDP members on social media. In a response to a tweet by one @borie_nla who tried to compare current APC members with PDP members took to twitter to share his views on the differences between APC and PDP.
I thought those on PDP side before the last elections were terrible, but the ones with APC now are very despicable.
It’s politics not life and death .

Demola started his notes by referring to a picture on social media where the youngest governor in the country was sighted in Aso Rock in crutches.
- Just saw this pic and I want to commend the greater majority of PDP and pro-PDP handles for their disciplined ‘opposition’ to APC. Pictures of PDP’s Danbaba Suntai when he had an accident back then were met with terrible hatred and insults from the online APC rank and file.
- APC handles – young and old – never spared any foul word on the man during his ailment “Shebi he chopped money? Let all of them die” – an absolutely uncouth and shameless bunch. I’m proud to belong to this side where our worst ‘badmouths’ are
@YemieFASH And @MrStanleyNwabia
- And they won’t come for you unless you come for them. Sis
@Tutsy22 will just send you to your parents – since you said you don’t have home training. Me I’ll just block and move on. APC opposition anywhere is such a terrible thing to observe – they have a culture of hate.
- And it’s exactly how their leaders are – divisive and hateful and without regard for humane values or culture. How many Nigerians knew Islam had sects in Nigeria before this Buhari Govt? Some of us did but not everyone – see how Shia Muslims are being harassed in Abuja.
- There’s a culture of hate in APC and only very few of their leaders are not hate heroes. The only thing covering their inhumane nature for now is that they’re in power. These folks legit hated the Nigerian Army back then and broadcast BH attacks with demonic glee.
- It’s good to remind ourselves of how we got here and where we are sha – even in power, one SA to the Kogi Governor said Audu Maikori should be left to rot in jail – miss me with that generational solidarity crap: the only way they know how to thrive is by hate and division.
- Oh, I remember when Alamieyeseigha died in October 205 also and the APC hate brigade went into overdrive with curses – on top Bayelsa oil money. Then Abubakar Audu of Kogi also died soon after in November 2015 and they started foaming at the mouth when some returned the favour.
- People often say “no difference between APC and PDP” but you haven’t rolled with these ones. If they hate you and you mistakenly die with your corpse under a shade, they will drag your dead body into the sun just to spite you. And no surprise – it’s the way of their fathers.
- One of their leading lights back then works in the UK. Small fallout they had with Ogbeni after they’d won – they wrote to his university in UK and threatened his job, went to Instagram to dig out family pictures. Very hateful, classless, spiteful and terrible bunch.
- Someone here worked with them pre-election, small criticism they called him “Biafran” and went to block a proposal he’d submitted by saying “he hates Yorubas”. Meanwhile, this person is married to a Yoruba lady but once the hate in their heart is too dark to imagine.
- Yes it’s politics and a battle of ideas and ideology but I can’t ever sit at the same table with most of them in our generation without carrying my drink every time I stand up. I’ll even throw away premium cognac if I forget to carry my cup from their table.
- The only thing hiding the hate in their hearts presently is the joy of standing across the road from the gate of power – they’ve not changed one bit. They now use bot handles to spew their hate and lies. When we come hard at them like this, there’s history and reason behind it.
- The proper response to their hate isn’t hate but it’s not love either – it’s cautious humanity love that smiles to them from a safe distance where they can’t successfully throw stones. We forgave but we didn’t forget. And we’re ready now but let’s all do better.
