The All Progressives Congress (APC), has finally reacted to the shameful assault on Senator Ike Ekweremadu, a former Deputy Senate President of the country.
The APC while condemning the attack on Senator Ekweremadu in Germany, said that the main opposition party in the country, the PDP should apologize to Nigerians for showing support to IPOB in the past.
The APC made this known via a statement which was signed by Lanre Issa-Onilu, the National Publicity Secretary of the party. A part of the statement reads, ‘It is clear that PDP and its other shortsighted co-travelers who were the main cheerleaders of IPOB owe this country an apology. IPOB hid under regional identity to perpetrate criminality having recruited some misguided elements and miscreants.
The APC further said that it was not surprised by what it described as the hypocritical reaction of the PDP to the attack on Senator Ekweremadu. They further said the actions of the PDP was as a result of the party’s shortsightedness as they had allowed ‘narrow sentiments’ to becloud their sense of judgment.
“Are we surprised by the PDP’s hypocritical reaction to the unfortunate attack on Senator Ekweremadu? No! The PDP and their leaders have acted true to type. This is what happens when politicians become myopic and allow narrow sentiments becloud their sense of judgement,” part of the statement read.
They however ended the statement by noting that it is the collective responsibility of all Nigerians to take a stand against evil wherever it may be found and in whatever form it may appear.
