Abuja - The People's Democratic Party (PDP) has distanced itself from a group named PDP Media Watchdog, which called for the resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari because of his comments over his age.
The opposition party's National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, said the group was unknown to the party and has no connection whatsoever with the party at any level.
PDP Media Watchdog's statements thus were not a reflection of the position of the party.
“The attention of the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has been drawn to a press statement by a group parading as PDP Media Watchdog and purporting to be working within and in the interest of our great party," said Metuh.

"This group is absolutely unknown to the PDP and has no connection whatsoever with our party at any level, neither is the content of their statement a reflection of the position or stance of the party."
Metuh said for the avoidance of doubt, his party had not authorized this group to use its name, acronym or logo to issue statements or make public pronouncements on any matter.
"We caution those behind them to henceforth desist from such immediately,” the statement read.
The PDP also distances itself from the "embarrassing, offensive and denigrating" language on the person and office of the President of country.
“This is completely unacceptable and against the posture of the PDP to engage only on robust and credible opposition."
