By Dirisu Yakubu
ABUJA-The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday berated President Muhammadu Buhari and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for purportedly endorsing former Edo State governor, Adams Oshiomhole’s quest for the leadership of the party.

In a statement by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP said the recourse to endorsement as against free and fair congress constitutes an affront on the APC constitution.

“The All Progressives Congress (APC) has finally lost all democratic credentials deserving of a ruling party, with President Muhammadu Buhari’s high-handedness and coronation of former Edo state governor,
Adams Oshiomhole, as the National Chairman, at the Presidential villa, without allowing for a free and fair congress as enshrined in their
constitution.

“The APC has now practically become a party of “any thing goes” where decisions are taken only according to the whims and caprices of
President Buhari.

“More appalling to this impunity are the reports of threats and harassment of APC members who demanded for free and fair congress, as well as those, indicating support for other aspirants other than Oshiomhole,” the statement read in part.
