Press Statement

 

‘You are too quarrelsome’, PDP Tells Lai Mohammed

 

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) describes the spokesman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Lai Mohammed as a quarrelsome and misguided individual completely unfit to hold responsible national office in a democratic government.

 

PDP National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh in a statement on Saturday said that the cantankerous nature, resort to personal attacks and uncouth description of a rival political party always, by the APC spokesman while responding to critical issues, are indicative of his background, pedigree, upbringing and emptiness as a low life.

 

The party advised the APC spokesman to shed his offensive narcissist tendencies even in his desperation not to end up being a minister without a portfolio.

 

The PDP counseled Lai Mohammed that having been a beneficiary of the benevolence and forgiving spirit of the Senate President, one would expect him now to be mature, decent, civil and more organized in his responses to public comments.
