APC’s comments can scuttle democracy, says PDP
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has berated berate the All Progressives Congre Congress (APC) for its criticism of the judiciary j over the recent court order on 37 defected mem members of the House of ReprA Representatives. A statement by the national pu publicity secretary of the P PDP, Chief Olisa Metuh, on Sunday, said the attacks on the executive arm of government by the APC as well as the ‘legislative gerrymandering’ and the comments on the judiciary are concrete elements of ‘political nihilism.’
“Why is weird anarchism an option for the APC? Consistently, this party has attacked and denigrated the executive and Nigerians excused it on the desperation of a political party that claims an alternative. It then took on the legislature where its crisis recipe in gerrymandering has yielded no result. Now, the APC is on a renewed aggression on the judiciary. Why is nihilism the APC preferred option?” Metuh asked.
The statement further said it was unfortunate the APC was waging such a battle whose tragic consequences on the institutions of democracy were well known.
“Wherever the APC is drawing this inspiration or motivation is surely far from the continent of democracy and right within the conclave of dictatorship. The APC is doing everything to scuttle democracy,” the PDP argued.
