The national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has warned members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, to stop insulting President Goodluck Jonathan and respect his office.
The PDP noted that the action of leaders and governors of the APC threatens the survival of democracy and Nigeria as a nation.
“PDP will no longer condone the deliberate, unwarranted and sustained vicious attacks on the person and office of the President, the institutions of democracy and the unity of the nation by the opposition All Progressives Congress, APC,” a statement by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh said.
“The PDP will no longer fold its hands while the desperate desire of the APC for power unchains undisciplined impulses and actions posing a threat to the very survival of democracy and the nation.
“The PDP has been watching carefully as the rank and file of the APC, the governors, party leaders, presidential hopefuls and even sidekicks run amok, competing in a heavily subjective castigation of President Goodluck Jonathan with incendiary utterances, signposting its plans for the dastardly when it loses in next year’s general elections,” the party said.
