OrderPaperToday- The All Progressives Congress (APC) has advised the National Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, to “temper his political language and conduct” following what it described as “irresponsible and baseless utterances” by the PDP Chairman.
APC’s admonition was contained in a statement released today in reaction to claims by Secondus that the APC conspired with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to declare the Osun State Governorship Election inconclusive.
According to the ruling Party, the allegation by the PDP Chairman is unfounded and unbefitting for the National Chairman of a political Party, stressing that such actions by the opposition leader will only lead to “personal attacks and ridicule.”
“Weeks ago the PDP National Chairman took the internal matters of the country’s politics to the international scene by writing letters to various international organizations. Again, soon after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared the Osun State Governorship Election inconclusive, Prince Secondus without basis accused the electoral body of conspiring with the All Progressives Congress (APC) to declare the election inconclusive.
“The APC would as a rule ignore irresponsible and baseless utterances and actions as exhibited by the PDP National Chairman, but as we prepare for the forthcoming 2019 General elections, it is necessary we give a word of caution on expected behavior required of all political sides. Prince Secondus is respectfully advised to temper his political language and conduct,” the statement said.
