The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has condemned, in its entirety, the attack on former Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremmadu, by some Nigerians in Germany, at the weekend.
The PDP made the condemnation in a statement issued yesterday by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan in Abuja.
The leading opposition party noted that the former Deputy Senate President was attending the 2nd Igbo Annual Festival in Germany, where he was duly scheduled as a speaker and special guest of honour, when he was attacked.
The party insisted that the attack on Senator Ekweremadu was uncalled for, unprovoked and cannot be justified under any guise whatsoever.
The PDP added that such assault on a does not portray our nation in proper light.
The party therefore “charges the Nigerian Ambassador to Germany as well as the German government to take appropriate decisive action on the matter”.
The PDP also urged 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 the present administration.
