Abuja - The ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has asked the All Progressives Congress (APC) to stop the alleged denigration of the Presidency.
The national leadership of the party said it observed the "sustained insults, vituperations, lies and unending schemes" by the opposition party against the office and person of President Goodluck Jonathan.
It alleged these were part of the well laid-out plot to cause confusion and ultimately truncated the nation’s democracy.
“In continuously hauling insults against a democratically elected President upon whose shoulders lies the sacred mandate freely given by the Nigerian people, the APC is directly insulting Nigerians and showing their disdain for the institution of democracy. This further confirms the APC’s Janjaweed ideology against the nation,” stated National Publicity Secretary, of the party, Olisa Metuh.
Metuh added that the National Chairman and the National Working Committee of the ruling party found it disturbing that the APC leadership could "condescend so low and resort to the use of uncouth language against the office and person of the President out of sheer frustration, bitterness and envy."
“They have continued to show themselves as extremely unpatriotic elements blinded by narrow pursuit of power for very ignoble reasons for which they have contracted foreigners to undermine the government of their own nation using negative paid write-ups and advertorials to dish out lies and vituperations against the Federal Government."
APC has been critical of government's response to increasing terror. On the other hand the ruling party has accused the APC of complicity
