who re­signed last The Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party (PDP) has con­demned Gover­nor Mur­tala Nyako’s re­cent let­ter to the 19 North­ern gov­er­nors say­ing it is shock­ing that such a let­ter is com­ing from an elected of­fi­cial.

The PDP in state­ment signed by its na­tional pub­lic­ity sec­re­tary, Olisa Me­tuh, said Gover­nor Nyako should learn from other APC lead­ers who have started guid­ing their ut­ter­ances.

“Gover­nor Nyako must de­sist from such and learn from other APC lead­ers who are now com­port­ing them­selves bet­ter as a re­sponse to PDP state­ments which suc­ceeded in ex­pos­ing the link be­tween their un­guarded ut­ter­ances and es­ca­la­tion of vi­o­lence and in­sur­gency in our na­tion”, the party said.

The PDP also charged all po­lit­i­cal fig­ures across board to guard against mak­ing vi­o­lence-in­sti­gat­ing state­ments and called on Pres­i­dent Good­luck Jonathan and the 36 state gov­er­nors to come up with a strong res­o­lu­tion to stop the trend of in­se­cu­rity in the coun­try.

The party also called on all Nige­ri­ans, es­pe­cially re­spectable politi­cians to con­tinue to unite against ter­ror­ism and ten­den­cies that pro­mote vi­o­lence and are ca­pa­ble of di­vid­ing rather than unit­ing the na­tion.

“Our re­solve is to join hands with re­spon­si­ble, re­spectable and pa­tri­otic Nige­ri­ans to high­light and pro­mote our de­sire to live to­gether in a strong, peace­ful and united Nigeria. Our en­e­mies are at the gate, but to­gether we will keep them out as we con­tin­u­ally watch our com­ments and ut­ter­ances”, Me­tuh said.
