APC-led Govt Treating PDP Members As Prisoners Of War – Metuh
Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has accused All Progressives Congress, APC-led Federal Government of treating its members as prisoners of war.
Spokesman of the party, Olisa Metuh, who was addressing party stakeholders in Lokoja shortly before the commencement of the re-scheduled ward congress of the party in the state yesterday, said the party was also working hard to win the Kogi and Bayelsa governorship polls scheduled for November and December, respectively.
According to him, “we are being treated as if we are prisoners of war. We are being treated as if we are refugees. We are not afraid, we have faith in our strength and unity; faith in the peace, unity and progress of Nigeria.
“We (PDP) are not afraid of the intimidation, harassment and arrest of our members by the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, if the arrest is done within the confines of the law.”
The Publicity Secretary said while the party’s stand against corruption had remained unwavering, he lamented the alleged witch hunt of its members by the Buhari-led administration under the pretext of a probe.
He said: “We condemn the uncivilised method of arrest, intimidation and the abuse of the fundamental human rights of members of the party, who served in the last administration, by the Buhari-led administration.”
Governor Idris Wada, in his welcome address, described Kogi State PDP as one big family, and appealed to members to abide by the congress rules to ensure a successful election.
