Lafia - The Nasarawa State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP) has said that the unguided utterances of the National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC] Lai Mohammed, was capable of truncating the country’s nascent democracy.
A statement issued in Lafia by the state chairman, Yunana Iliya said the recent outburst by Mohammed over the planned impeachment of Governor Tanko Al-Makura could cause confusion in the state.
Iliya cautioned the APC spokesperson to always consider the atmosphere before making such utterances to avoid creating unnecessary tension in the country.
“Lai is found of making unguided utterances and statements which ordinarily are supposed to be handled with caution so as not rubbish the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” Illiya said.
Mohammed recently accused President Goodluck Jonathan and the PDP of being the brains behind the renewed plot to impeach Governor Almakura.

Illiya said impeachment was a constitutional matter and what the lawmakers did was not alien to the constitution.
“We expected Lai to have thoroughly consulted the provision of section 188 of the Nigerian constitution before issuing such statements knowing fully that what the lawmakers did is not alien to the constitution,” he said.
“Does Lai want to say that the APC will legalise corruption if given the opportunity to rule this country?”
He urged Mohammed to crosscheck how government funds were spent in Nasarawa, whether it was in line with due process especially as it regards contract award and execution.
“We equally challenge the APC publicity secretary and his sponsors to come out and tell the world of any contract executed by the present APC administration in the state if that was done in line with due process of advertising such contract and bided for before execution,” Illiya said.
