APC absolves self from attempt on Ekweremadu



The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Thursday said it had no hand in an alleged assassination attempt on the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu.

This is contained in a statement issued on Thursday in Abuja by Mr Timi Frank the Acting National Publicity Secretary of APC.

The statement described the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) allegation that APC was behind the attempt on Ekweremadu’s life as “induced hallucination.”

The PDP through its spokesman, Chief Olisa Metuh had alleged of a plot to exterminate Ekweremadu and other opposition leaders by the APC.‎

Metuh told newsmen on Wednesday that the lives of key opposition members were endangered.

In his reaction to the allegation, Frank stated that it was unfortunate that the PDP resorted to cheap blackmail.

He said that the PDP was yet to purge itself of cheap and manipulative strategies that helped to escort it to the doldrums that it is in today.

He said that the past 16 years of PDP’s rule saw a Minister, Chief Bola Ige, politicians like Harry Marshall and Funso Williams assassinated with no attempt to unravel the mysteries that surrounded their deaths.

“It would therefore, be unfortunate for the PDP to elevate this strategic act it had perfected over the years to a political art or a propaganda tool,’’ the statement said.

    Would they agree, did they call the wife of their national leader who a day after the assassination attempt on the life of the Deputy Senate President went to go and seat on his seat, in my place it is said that owl cry for night , pickin die for morning, even if as they claim they dont have anything to do with it , but why on earth should the wife of the national leader of the party do that a day afetr the attempt on his life, or was she expecting that he was not going to make it, and please don’t also forget the show of shame that she did during the swearing in of all of them were she was openly shown on national tv saying that they were not going to recognize Saraki and his newly elected head of the parliament,and also rejecting the offer to shake his hands. so they cant deny that.

    Her behaviour was rascality in its extreme and stamping of shamelessness on the face of APC , and marks the height of insensitivity.
