The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that it won’t insult incoming President, Muhammadu Buhari.

The PDP also stated that it would not ridicule the President’s office in any way.

The comments were made by PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh on Thursday, April 16, 2015, during a radio programme.

Metuh said:

“The PDP is a political party built on values, tradition and utmost respect for democratic tenets. Our manifesto and ideology center on national peace, stability and prosperity and we shall uphold this at all times. In this wise, the PDP as always, will continue to work in the general interest of the Nigerian people.”

“We will not resort to insults, blackmail and lies with the aim to distract or ridicule the person or office of the President. However, we must state in very strong terms that we will not allow them to lead the nation astray. So we will firmly oppose any anti-people policy and programmes as may be introduced by the APC.”

“We will do this by presenting sound alternatives in such a manner that Nigerians will be the utmost beneficiaries especially on issues that will lead the nation in the path of national unity and development.”

The PDP spokesperson also stated that the party is collating and analyzing reports of the elections from across the country and will take decisive actions within the confines of the law to protect the interest of its candidates and the mandate of the people.
