The All Progressives Congress (APC), has described allegations by the Peoples Democratic Party that the APC was behind the attempt on the life of the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, as hallucination.
National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Chief Olisah Metuh, had alleged that the governing party was behind the attempt to kill the Deputy Senate President, last Tuesday in Abuja.
The PDP spokesperson also alleged that the attack on Ekweremadu was part of a larger plot to eliminate key opposition leaders.
But in a reaction to the allegation, the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mr. Timi Frank, in a statement said the PDP’s allegation was cheap blackmail.
Frank said it is sad and unfortunate that the PDP has yet to purge itself of its manipulative strategies which eventually led to its downfall in the 2015 election.
He said, “The past 16 years of the PDP’s rule saw a honorable minister, Chief Bola Ige, politicians such as Harry Marshall and Funso Williams assassinated with no attempt to unravel the mysteries that surrounded their deaths.
“It will, therefore, be unfortunate for the PDP to elevate this act it had perfected over the years to a propaganda tool.
“Nigerians all over the world know that President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC are more concerned with cleaning the mess the PDP-led government bequeathed” to the nation.
While urging Nigerians to disregard the opposition’s latest attempt to deceive them and distract the ruling party, he said it was curious that the alleged assassination attempt on the nation’s number three citizen would go without any security report.
