The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), yesterday maintained that crisis rocking the North-East region would not impeded the conduct of the forthcoming general elections as insinuated from some quarters of the public.
The National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Chief Olisa Metuh who made the position of the Party known while speaking on a live Radio programme monitored by People’s Daily in Abuja yesterday, insisted that there was no reason why elections would not be held in such areas as being agitated in some quarters.
Metuh who opined that the people are unnecessarily crying wolves’ when there was none.
Metuh blamed the state governors manning the affairs of the affected states for complacency over the breakdown of law by the insurgents in the area, due to their failure to live up to their people’s expectations.
“If the State Governors in the affected states have been alive to their responsibilities as being done by the PDP controlled Federal Government, the situation would have been brought under control, rather they are busy attacking the President and our Party as responsible for the insecurity and that elections will not hold in the affected states, elections must hold and PDP will spring surprises “, he declared.
According to him, “what is regrettable is that those leading members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, that are making unguarded utterances against the President and the PDP, were former members of our party who got to where they are today on our platform, before they defected, one of them even said that if APC did not win the 2015 Presidential election, they will not go to court, but will go and form a parallel government.
“We have made our position known in our press statement of yesterday that enough is enough, PDP will no longer tolerate such barbaric attacks again, if any one of them tries again, we will go out in full swing and expose such a character”,Metuh threatened.”
Metuh urged Nigerians to disregard all the propaganda and blackmail of the APC
