PDP urges APC’s spokesman to stop lying

2015-05-13 19:30

Abuja - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has urged the spokesman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Lai Mohammed to learn to be truthful, honest and desist from fabricating lies that could be injurious to democracy and peaceful co-existence in the country, reports Linda Ikeji.

The party urged him to get his facts right and be truthful in his statements at all times.

The PDP was reacting to Mohammed’s claims that the Presidency and the PDP had bluntly refused to cooperate with the APC to ensure a successful transition on May 29.

PDP’s National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh in a statement on Wednesday, said if not for the maturity of President Goodluck Jonathan and the head of the APC’s Transition Committee, Ahmed Joda, who cleared the air, the country would have been thrown into crisis over the false alert by Mohammed that the Presidency was frustrating the transition process.

Metuh reminded Mohammed that political campaigns with their attendant propaganda are over and that Nigerians expect a more mature and patriotic behaviour from the political class.
