The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said the comments of the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, on the ruling of the Supreme Court on the Bayelsa State Governorship election that there will be no swearing in is mere ranting.
Describing it as an empty threat, the PDP said the comment is not just pedestrian but also inconsequential.
Kola Ologbondiyan, National Publicity Secretary of the party further warned that Oshiomhole should steer clear of Bayelsa state as, according to him, his apparent plots to trigger violence in the state has failed.
However, Ologbondiyan said the PDP wish to counsel Oshiomhole “to be careful with his utterances and not use any forms of venomous garrulity and clear misuse of language to destabilize our nation and truncate our hard earned democracy.”
“The people of Bayelsa state knows as a fact that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) under our laws, cannot take instructions from any individual, let alone a factional national chairman of a dysfunctional political party like the APC.
“The PDP, as a law-abiding party, counsels Oshiomhole to rein in himself and desist from all odious designs against Bayelsa state, her people and government.
“The PDP also calls on the people of Bayelsa state to remain calm as their mandate has been restored and cannot be taken away by the ranting of any individual who has no stake whatsoever in the wellbeing of his own home state, Ologbondiyan stated.
