The protest was led by the APC’s candidate in the governorship election, Dakuku Peterside and Senator Magnus Abe.
The PDP in a statement on Friday described the protest as ‘touting’ by otherwise respectable people.
The party claimed that the protest confirmed that Dakuku and his party men are irresponsible, desperate, frustrated, losing grip of events and have therefore, resorted to civil disturbance.
The party urged the APC leaders not to regard a lost election as the end of life.
