The All Progressives Congress (APC) has described the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP’s allegation of the party being behind the attempt on deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu’s life, as an induced hallucination.
The PDP had alleged of a plot to exterminate the life of deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu and other opposition leaders, by the ruling APC. PDP’s spokesman, Olisa Metuh, who briefed reporters at the party’s national secretariat recently, said the lives of key opposition members had become endangered.
Reacting to the allegation, however, acting national publicity secretary of the APC, Comrade Timi Frank, said it was unfortunate that the PDP has resorted to cheap blackmail and was yet to purge itself of cheap and manipulative strategies that only helped “escort it to the doldrums that it is in today”.
Comrade Frank in a statement made available to newsman in Abuja, yesterday, said it was bemusing and canny of the PDP to adopt such cheap and strange propaganda in its attempt to taint the change mantra the APC has sworn to betroth to the nation.
The APC chided the opposition party for adopting its past known strategy for cheap political gains knowing fully well that the APC unlike the PDP, is known for adherence to the rule of law and respect for the sanctity of life, noting that the past 16 years of the PDP’s ruler ship, saw a honorable minister, Chief Bola Ige, politicians like Harry Marshall and Funso Williams assassinated with no attempt to unravel the mysteries that surrounded their deaths.
