The political jibes between the People's Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) appear to be far from over as the former ruling party has warned APC to stop intimidating the party's leaders, stating that PDP will no longer tolerate such attacks.
Newly-elected PDP Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus gave this warning following the invitation and grilling of former Senate President, David Mark by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) earlier this week.
Prince Secondus called on the ruling party to desist from attacking PDP leaders and focus on fulfilling its campaign promises, stating that the country was not in a military era to warrant such attacks.
According to Secondus, PDP handed over power freely to APC in 2015 and the ruling party should be prepared to do the same regardless of their intimidations.
The PDP Chairman said;
"APC should stop intimidating our leaders. We will no longer take it, enough is enough. They don’t need to attack us, they should fulfil what they promised us. Enough of this, we are not in a military era".
"What I am telling them is that God is not sleeping. When the time comes, the people will speak through their votes. We handed over freely in 2015 and they should be prepared to hand over to us. No amount of intimidation will distract Nigerians".
"We will obey our Constitution, this is the only way we can perform. We will obey you (BoT members). We will checkmate impunity. We will find time to organize a retreat for BoT. We will not fail you. Power will come power and go".
On Monday, David Mark was interrogated by the EFCC over the allegations that he collected N5.4b from embattled former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki. The anti-graft agency reportedly held Mark in their custody for seven hours before seizing his international passport.
