Abuja - The ruling People's Democratic Party (PDP) has cautioned the former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, over his reported criticism of the party saying he risked destroying his legacy.
Olisa Metuh, PDP National Publicity Secretary, said PDP's attention had been drawn to a statement Abubakar purportedly signed and against the PDP and the Presidency.
"The PDP does not wish to join issues with Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, one of the founding fathers of our great party and two-time former Vice President. However, we want to caution his media managers to desist from associating him with propaganda, political mudslinging and character assassination that the APC has become notorious for," PDP stated.
PDP said it wished to put on record that it had deliberately chosen not to take on the person of any of its former members who were now in the opposition.
"However, it is shocking that the leaders and members of the APC have gone on rabid attack on the Presidency and the leadership of the PDP”, Metuh stated.
It offered "advice" on Abubakar's publicists.
“Our final advice to the media handlers of our esteemed former Vice President, His Excellency, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is that they should remember that we were once together and shared great vision. In spite of any personal interest, the PDP as a platform remains better than the APC. Indeed the APC is not an alternative. It has no vision and is completely lacking in ideology."
