The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has taking a dig at the controversial National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr. Adams Oshiomhole, over his alleged bid to change leadership of the Nigerian Senate.
The opposition party said Oshiomhole exhibits lizard wisdom in his approach to the crises rocking the ruling party with his divisive actions.
DAILY POST recalls that Oshiomhole had at a news conference in Abuja on Friday, vowed to impeach the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki if he fails to resign ‘honourably’.
“We know that Oshiomhole is under intense pressure from the Presidency to overheat the polity, distract the National Assembly members and make as much effort to cause a constitutional crisis in the country, having realized that they cannot win the 2019 general elections, said Kola Ologbodiyan, PDP’s spokesperson.
“However, the PDP strongly cautions these desperate power-grabbers to note that their actions have unlimited capacity to destroy our democracy.
“Since Oshiomhole assumed office, the nation has witnessed various unimaginable constitutional infractions, including the invasion of Benue State House of Assembly and the Ekiti state Government House by APC-Controlled federal security agencies, the escalated harassment of federal legislators and persons perceived to be averse to APCs’ re-election bid; the siege at the residences of Senate President Bukola Saraki and Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu by security agencies as well as the recent invasion of the National Assembly by security operatives.
“While the PDP invites Nigerians and the international community to note the activities of Mr. Oshiomhole, as being directed by the Presidency, the party hold firmly that they are fighting a lost battle as they cannot cow Nigerians into changing their resolve to end this nightmare by voting the APC out and returning our nation to the path of peace, national cohesion and economic prosperity, on the platform of the repositioned PDP, come 2019.”
“The party counsels Oshiomhole to stop his childish tantrums and get educated on the fact that the positions of the Senate President and that of Deputy Senate President do not belong to political parties but to Nigerians, who elect persons into the seats through their elected representatives in the Senate.”
