The All Progressives Congress, APC, has said it has nothing to do with the reported police invitation of Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu, over which the PDP has released an “outlandish” statement containing all sorts of imaginary claims.
In a statement issued in Abuja on Sunday by its National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, the party said it neither wrote a petition to the police nor is it aware that any petition was written against the Deputy Senate President.
”However, if, as the PDP claims, the petition concerns alleged altering of the Senate’s Standing Rules on the process of electing Presiding Officers, that is a clear case of forgery which the police have a duty to investigate. Questioning the right of the police to carry out their duties in this regard amounts to intimidating the security agency.
”Forgery is a crime that is being regularly investigated by the police, and it beggars belief that such investigation will now be interpreted to mean that Nigeria is descending into dictatorship or that democracy and the enjoyment of personal freedoms are now endangered. These claims by the scaremongering PDP are farfetched and preposterous,” it said.
