APC NEC meeting: Apologise, stop denying your wrong deeds, PDP tells Presidency
Opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has flayed the President Muhammadu Buhari administration for denying the use of the Federal Executive Council Chamber for partisan purposes like playing host to the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting.
PDP described as unfortunate that the Presidency would post a denial of an event that was already in the public domain showing that the partisan meeting held inside the Federal Executive Council Chamber.
National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan in a statement on Sunday urged President Buhari to call his handlers to order so as to protect the integrity of his Presidency from further damage as has been witnessed by the denial on the use of FEC chamber for APC NEC meeting.
Ologbondiyan said: “It is therefore shocking that the Buhari Presidency can state in denial that ‘this meeting, we say emphatically, was not convened at the Council Chamber. It was virtual, not a physical meeting.’
“This is even when the world watched Mr. President addressing the APC leaders, in addition to the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice (AGF), Abubakar Malami, physically administering oath of office on the chairman of APC National Caretaker Committee, Mai Buni, on the floor of the FEC chamber.
“It is a fact before Nigerians that the meeting was physical and only virtual to the extent that some members of the APC NEC members were linked via conference call.
“Moreover, our party refers the Buhari Presidency to reports already in the media where the AGF admitted administering oath of office to the chairman of the APC Caretaker Committee; an event that took place on the floor of the FEC Chamber.
“Such a denial by President Buhari’s handlers has further exposed the decadence in the APC and the Buhari Presidency.
“What Nigerians expected of the Buhari Presidency and the APC, was to tender an unreserved apology to the nation and desist from further desecration of our national values and official conduct requirements,” the opposition PDP stated.
