Abuja - The ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) welcomed Senate’s move to screen and clear the newly-appointed service chiefs in spite of the directive by the All People Congress (APC) to the lawmakers to stall the process.
“In completely ignoring the APC, the lawmakers have shown that they are indeed statesmen who are alive to their constitutional responsibilities for which they were elected by Nigerians,” said PDP National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh.
He said the party commended the APC senators who participated in the exercise for their commitment to nation building, applauding them for rejecting the parochial directive of their desperate party leaders.
Metuh said the lawmakers had “rekindled the hope of Nigerians in the National Assembly as the last defence for democracy” adding that it was “highly impressed by the roles the Senate and its leadership have been playing to ensure the stability of the nation.”
The ruling party also urged the lawmakers to continue to ignore the APC by accelerating the consideration and passage of the 2014 budget and all other bills pending before them in the national interest.
PDP assured that it would continue to be committed to national unity, peace, security and welfare of all Nigerians at all times and urged Nigerians to continue to give support to its programmes and government at all levels.
