PDP cautions APC over protests against N’Assembly members

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has cautioned the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its vested interests in government circles on the dangers of sponsoring protests against the members of the National Assembly.

  The party said that such was capable of destroying the bedrock of the nation’s democracy, pitching Nigerians against one another and driving the nation into anarchy.

  In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party pointed out that Nigerians were shocked over revelations in which cabinet

ministers and appointees of the President were alleged to have paid the protesters with a view to using them to embarrass the National Assembly on Tuesday.

  It said that Nigerians could recall how, in April this year, hoodlums gained access into the National Assembly, invaded the hallowed chambers of the Senate and made away with the mace, while threatening the lawmakers and disrupting proceedings in the parliament.

  It reminded the APC that members of the National Assembly were direct representatives of the people and the failure of the Federal Government to recall Senator Dino Melaye, despite the huge resources invested, spoke volume of the real position of Nigerians on the ongoing stand-off between the executive and the legislature.

  The PDP, therefore, cautioned the APC and its interests in the Federal Executive to end their plots against the National Assembly and direct such energies to providing good governance, which has eluded the nation in the last three years.
