The All Progressives Congress (APC), has issued a stern warning to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), over the comment by its spokesperson, Olisa Metuh, referring to President Buhari as a dictator.
Party issues stern warning to PDP
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Thursday, December 31, 2015 said President Muhammadu Buhari’s first ever media chat exposed his undemocratic nature.
According to Punch Newspapers, the APC national chairman, Odigie-Oyegun, said “The APC is worried by PDP’s inciting statements. Respect for the office of the President or heads of government in any clime is not a matter of choice but a civic obligation sanctioned by laws.
“Being an opposition party or critic is no license to issue abusive, intemperate and slanderous statements on government officials; most especially the President of the country.”
Adding that “The PDP has proven that it is not a party to be trusted or taken seriously. Only recently, the PDP said in a December 24, 2015 statement: ‘we urge that Nigerians should not recourse to hauling insults on the President.
“For the umpteenth time, the APC urges Nigerians who see merit in the war that the President Buhari-led administration is waging against corruption, not to be distracted by the PDP and their agents of corruption to discredit the war. For the records, the ongoing war against corruption is not selective. Anybody guilty of corrupt practices will face the law.”
