The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has dismissed 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 as an “empty and inconsequential ranting”.
Mr. Oshiomhole, had while reacting to he Supreme Court judgement, threatened that no one can be sworn in in Bayelsa tomorrow (Friday) as no one, n his view, met the constitutional requirement to be sworn in.
But PDP National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement on Thursday warned Oshiomhole to steer clear of Bayelsa State.
Ologbodiyan said the APC chairman’s obvious plots to cause violence in the state had failed.
He said, “The people of Bayelsa State knows as a fact that the Independent National Electoral Commission under our laws, cannot take instructions from any individual, let alone a factional national chairman of a political party like the APC.
“The PDP, as a law-abiding party, counsels Oshiomhole to rein in himself and desist from all 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 any individual.”
