More parties vow not to hang Buhari’s portrait in their offices

14 September 2015, 12:27

Abuja - Two other political parties, the Labour Party (LP) and Progressive Peoples Alliance (PPA), have joined  the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in refusing to hang the portrait of President Muhammadu Buhari in their respective secretariats, reports Punch.

The two parties said their decision not to hang Buhari’s portrait was based on the action of the All Progressives Congress (APC), which before it came to power, allegedly refused to accord the same respect to former President Goodluck Jonathan.

They noted that it was a payback for the APC.

The National Chairman of PPA, Peter Ameh, stated that the APC blazed the trail of subtle civil disobedience when it was in opposition.

The National Chairman, LP, Abdulkadir Abdulsalam, said the party did not have Buhari’s portrait, noting that apart from the fact that the APC never accorded Jonathan such respect, the new administration had failed to make the official portrait of Buhari available to it.
