Abuja - The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has warned Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Ameachi, against his statement that opposition would form a parallel government if the ruling party won the 2015 general election.
The PDP said it was ‘shocked and stunned’ by the statement especially coming from an elected person.
It cautioned Amaechi against unduly “overheating the system” and urged him to concentrate on his duties in his state.
The ruling party, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, urged him not to allow the “undemocratic attitude” of the APC to becloud him.
“He is a different person from who he was when he was in PDP. When he was in PDP, he was much more guarded in his statements. We urge him to desist from utterances capable of derailing our democracy,” PDP said.

The party also described as embarrassing, the violence on Thursday by some lawmakers, which led to the closure of the National Assembly, even as it distanced itself and the Presidency from the development.
It said the lawmakers were responsible adults elected by their constituencies and wondered what would have happened if the law enforcement agencies were not there to maintain law and order.
The PDP described the incident as unfortunate and cautioned that the parliament, being the nucleus of democracy, its members should be above board as Nigerians expect the best of behaviour from them.
The party restated that it would continue to resist the provocations from the opposition and remain focused in its commitment in consolidating a peaceful, prosperous and democratic Nigeria.
