Abuja - The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Thursday called on President Goodluck Jonathan to caution his aides to stop overheating the polity with their incautious statements, especially relating to the transition of power, reports Vanguard.
The party said while the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) may be deeply traumatized by its loss in the last general elections, that should not be a reason for it to disrupt the nation’s peace by displaying crab mentality.
The APC was reacting to statements credited to the Special Adviser to the President on Political Affairs, Prof. Rufai Alkali that the party is trying to stampede the President out of office.

Lai Mohammed, the party’s National Publicity Secretary, in a statement issued in Abuja, described Alkali’s statement as provocative and ill-intentioned.
Mohammed noted that Alkali’s statement is a reflection of mediocrity that permeates the Jonathan Administration, which led to its downfall.
He reiterated its earlier advice to the PDP to shake off the trauma of defeat and gear up for the challenging task of being in opposition.
