THE Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Demcoratic Party, PDP, has accused the All Progressives Congress, APC of instigating the persecution of the PDP publicity secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh.
But in a swift reaction, the APC in Lagos State described the PDP’s allegation as unfounded.
In a statement by its publicity secretary, Mr. Taofik Gani, the party noted that the arrest of the Metuh “is only being made convenient by the issue of money allegedly involved.”
The PDP accused the APC of its resolve to “clamp down on the PDP publicity office superintended by the now arrested Metuh.”
PDP must re-examine itself—Joe Igbokwe
Publicity Secretary of the APC in Lagos, Mr. Joe Igbokwe said “opposition must be real opposition and not band of looters of the common patrimony. They must not be wreckers of Nigeria and not partakers in the destruction of everything we hold dear.”
Igbokwe added: “PDP can be a real opposition if it chooses to be, but you cannot give what you do not have. The APC is not stopping PDP, but it must first of all, redeem itself. PDP must re-examine itself and call a spade, a spade. The PDP needs our help.”
