PDP calls for interrogation of Tinubu over alleged inflammatory statement

28 April 2014, 07:44

Lagos - The Lagos State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has called on the security agencies to interrogate Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, APC national leader, for making `reckless’ statements.

Tinubu said on April 23 at his investiture as the Chancellor, Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) Ogbomosho, that anyone who attempted to rig the upcoming elections in Ekiti and Osun states would be roasted.

A statement signed by Taofik Gani the state PDP publicity secretary, said the statement was capable of worsening the security challenges facing the country.

He said the statement was criminal and there was need to get the APC leader to explain details of his utterances.

“We are indeed worried that such inflammatory, inciting and criminal pronouncement can be made in our country at this period that we are confronted with serious security problems.”

“The statement must not be treated with kid gloves as it may ignite conflagration in the South-West region,” he said.

Gani urged politicians to have trust in the law courts to punish election offenders.

He said that the peace and tranquility of the country must supersede all personal interests.
