PDP advises APC against attacking government

27 May 2014, 10:36

Abuja - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on the All Progressives Congress (APC) to desist from attacking well meaning individuals, government officials and institutions in the nation`s interest.

Olisa Metuh, the party's National Publicity Secretary made the call in a statement on Monday in Abuja.

“As a ruling party, we charge them to show maturity and stop unnecessary attacks on well meaning individuals, government officials and institutions.

“On our own part, we remain committed to the national interest and the welfare of all our people,’’ the party spokesman said.

He maintained that the PDP leadership would continually stand behind President Goodluck Jonathan as he vigorously pursues his transformation agenda and efforts to fight terrorism in the country.

He commended Nigerians for uniting against insurgency in spite efforts by the opposition to misdirect their energies for political reasons.

Metuh decried the continuous hauling of insults on President Goodluck Jonathan by the APC which he said was a direct insult on Nigerians.

Metuh further said that by constantly criticising every strategy adopted by the President in the war against terrorism it had  exposed its underlining design to distract government and frustrate the over-all anti-terrorism efforts.
