PDP backs President’s advice against inflammatory statements

28 December 2014, 08:04

Abuja - The PDP in Abuja threw its weight behind President Goodluck Jonathan on his advice to politicians against inflammatory statements ahead of the 2015 general elections.

In a statement issued by Olisa Metuh, the PDP National Publicity Secretary, the party described Jonathan’s advice as a "perfect act in nationalism’’.

"It is the mark of a true leader who is committed to the interest and welfare of the nation and her citizens.’’Jonathan had advised politicians to desist from sowing seeds of discord among the people with their utterances.

The PDP urged politicians "to heed this caution, show decency, patriotism and shun the do-or-die quest for power’’.

The PDP called on Nigerians and lovers of democracy to be vigilant and close ranks to ensure that the enemies of the nation do not have their way.

It said the indivisibility of the nation was non-negotiable, adding that the PDP was committed to the unity and corporate existence of the nation.

The party further urged Nigerians to ensure that they expressed their resolve to live together as one people by voting en-masse for the PDP in the 2015 general elections.
