Abuja - The ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has slammed the directive by the All Progressive Congress (APC) National Executive Committee that their members in the National Assembly should stall the passage of the 2014 budget and the confirmation of new service chiefs.
PDP said this was “a clear and direct call for anarchy” and a vindication of PDP’s earlier position that the APC is “out to destroy the institution of democracy and the unity of the nation.”
PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, said that with the “anti-people directives”, Nigerians could now see that the PDP was not “crying wolf” when it alerted that the APC did not mean well for the nation.
“In asking that service chiefs should not be confirmed by the Senate, the APC has revealed its devilish plot to undermine the nation’s security system, create a state of anarchy and pave way to unleash mayhem on the people,” said Metuh.
“In trying to frustrate the passage of the 2014 budget, the APC has also exposed its plot to cripple the nation’s economy and plunge the people into untold hardship,” he stated.
According to the ruling party, “By attempting to cause confusion in the National Assembly, which is the citadel of democracy, it is now clear to all Nigerians that the APC has commenced the implementation of its orchestrated plot to truncate the nation’s democracy, push the country into a state chaos and achieve its doomsday predictions- a plot which must be stopped.”
