ABUJA-NATIONAL leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has asked the opposition party, the All Progressives Congress, APC and its leadership to as a matter of urgency explain the source of tapes of terrorist attacks on innocent Nigerians in their possession, which they intend to air designed to achieve what it termed, their selfish purpose.
In a statement yesterday night by PDP National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, the PDP said, “Indeed, upon the release of the tapes, the APC must explain to Nigerians how it got hold of them. We ask, is the APC working in collaboration with terrorist cells, who have been unleashing violence against innocent citizens of our dear nation?
“Are these the same terrorist groups that earlier nominated the APC Presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari to represent them in the dialogue between them and the Federal Government?
“Nigerians should be worried over the connections the APC might have with insurgent groups especially coming on the heels of recent support expressed to their presidential candidate by the Movement For The Emancipation Of The Niger Delta (MEND).
“We wish to clarify that this is not an attack on the APC as a party but rather a serious issue that boarders on national security.
“We therefore call on all Nigerians and lovers of democracy to note this as the APC embarks on a campaign to attempt to gain directly from the security challenges facing our nation.”
