By Henry Umoru
ABUJA- THE National Leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP said Wednessday that but for the maturity of President Goodluck Jonathan and the head of the All Progressives Congress, APC’s Transition Committee, Alhaji Ahmed Joda, who cleared the air that the presidency was not frustrating the Committee, APC’s spokesperson, Alhaji. Lai Mohammed would have thrown the country into crisis.

The PDP called on all Nigerians to be wary of actions that were capable of causing disunity in the land, just as it  reiterated its resolve to focus only on purposeful criticism while presenting credible alternatives to the policies and programmes of the in-coming administration in a manner that will promote democracy, unity and the well-being of Nigerians.

In a statement signed Wednessday by PDP National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa  Metuh, the party stressed that he must apologise to Nigeria and Nigerians for alleging  that the Presidency and the PDP had ‘bluntly refused to cooperate’ with the APC to ensure a successful transition and that the Transition Committee of the Federal Government had refused to hold any meeting with that of the APC.

Metuh who urged Lai  Mohammed to learn to be truthful, honest and desist from fabricating lies that could be injurious to democracy and peaceful co-existence in the country,  said, “but for the maturity of President Goodluck Jonathan and the head of the APC’s Transition Committee, Alhaji Ahmed Joda, who cleared the air, the country would have been thrown into crisis over the false alert by Lai Mohammed that the Presidency was frustrating the transition process.

“After Alhaji Joda debunked Lai Mohammed’s false statement and denied that his committee was being frustrated by the PDP-led Presidency, we waited for forty-eight hours expecting the APC spokesman to apologize to the nation, but this has not been done.

“It would be recalled that Lai Mohammed in a press statement last Thursday alleged that the Presidency and the PDP had ‘bluntly refused to cooperate’ with the APC to ensure a successful transition and that the Transition Committee of the Federal Government had refused to hold any meeting with that of the APC.
