National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole has said the PDP is making calculated statements to brew anarchy in Nigeria.
Oshiomhole was reacting to the statement made by Uche Secondus, his counterpart at the PDP after the Supreme Court sent Emeka Ihedioha our of office in Imo State.
“The PDP yesterday used language that even people who are partially mad in a democracy are not expected to use,” Oshiomhole said.
“We watched as PDP made reckless statements that are designed not only to intimidate the judiciary but calculated to lay the foundation for carefully planned unrest with a view of undermining the peace and stability of the Nigerian nation.”
The APC chairman added that Ihedioha did not get two-thirds votes across the 27 local government areas of the state which is a requirement by law before a candidate can be pronounced winner of the election.
“In a society that is committed to fairness and the rule of law, the returning officer ought not only to be dismissed but he also ought to have reported himself to the security how he arrived at the decision to declare Emeka Ihedioha as governor,” he said.
Oshiomhole added that when the supreme court declared PDP as winners of Zamfara and Rivers states, the APC obeyed the order even when it was not palatable.
