KOGI GUBER: PDP alleges plan by INEC, APC to disqualfy Wada

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has joined many other Nigerians in condemning the attack on Ike Ekweremadu, former Deputy Senate President, by members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

In a statement by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP said the attack was unprovoked and cannot be justified.

The party called on President Muhammadu Buhari to address issues causing agitations in the country since the beginning of his “misrule”.

“The PDP amply notes that the former deputy senate president was attending the 2nd Igbo Annual Festival in Germany where he was duly scheduled as a speaker and a special guest of honour when he was attacked,” the statement said.

“The party insists that the attack on Senator Ekweremadu was uncalled for, unprovoked and cannot be justified under any guise whatsoever.

“Such assault on a leader is completely unacceptable and does not portray our nation in proper light.

“The PDP therefore charges the Nigerian Ambassador to Germany as well as the German government to take appropriate decisive action on the matter.

“The party also urges the Federal Government, particularly, the National Assembly, to take urgent comprehensive step to address issues leading to acts of resentment and agitations by Nigerians within and outside the country in the last four years, under President Muhammadu Buhari’s misrule.”
