OrderPaperToday – The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has condemned the alleged assault by one of its members, Senator Elisha Abbo on a nursing mother.
A video released by PREMIUM TIMES revealed the incident at a sex toy shop in Abuja.
Sequel to the Senate’s decision to investigate the matter, the PDP also in a statement by its Spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan on Wednesday resolved to summon Abbo for questioning.
The PDP in its statement expressed shock and displeasure at the act and “completely condemn such act of lawlessness and callousness as exhibited in the video and will therefore never condone it.”
The statement continued: “Though this is a personal conduct of an individual which has no bearing with the culture of our party, the PDP however holds that no responsible person will condone such an attitude.
“In the light of this, the NWC has commenced investigation into the matter and summons Senator Elisha Abbo in line with the provisions of the Constitution of the PDP and code of conduct of our members.
“The PDP, at all levels of engagement, is reputed for her utmost respect and commitment towards the rights, safety and well-being of our citizens, particularly our women and cannot tolerate any callous assault on any Nigerian.
“The PDP therefore assures Nigerians that it will always stand on the side of justice and will never spare a thought in taking action on any of its members found wanting, particularly those elected or appointed into public offices.”
