PDP slams Lai Mohammed over Kano riots allegation
The Peoples Democratic Party has nothing but harsh word for the All Progressives Congress, spokesperson, Lai Mohammed over his allegation that the PDP incited the Kano riots.
The PDP literarily daubed the APC chief with pejorative epithets.
Mohammed had in a statement alleged that the riots that followed Sanusi Lamido Sanusi's announcement as the new Emir of Kano was a result of the PDP's earlier action, congratulating a candidate who is not the Emir as the new Emir.
The PDP in a statement by its spokesman, Olisa Metuh on Monday described the comments made by Lai Mohammed as unprofessional and unethical.
The statement read, 'Our attention has been drawn to an inciting and misleading statement by Lai Mohammed wherein he again exhibited his penchant for insane blackmail by calling for the arrest of the PDP National Publicity Secretary.
'We are indeed shocked by this statement and wonder what sort of dirty individual that could be so unprofessional, unprincipled and unethical.
'Indeed, it appears that lying Lai Mohammed has gone delusional and requires urgent medical attention. Has he become a low life who can go to any extent to score a cheap a political point?
'It is public knowledge that we made an innocent mistake but immediately withdrew it and tendered an unreserved apology well before the official announcement of the new emir was made.
'What does Lai Mohammed have to say to Mallam Lamido Sanusi Lamido himself who tweeted at about 8.59 am that sameSunday that Alhaji Lamido Ado Bayero has emerged emir? What does he have for credible electronic and print media organizations who broke the news of the emergence of Ado Bayero as emir upon which prominent Nigerians issued statements congratulating him.
'We also wish to remind Nigerians of the endless personal attacks by Lai Mohammed on the person of the PDP National Publicity Secretary. In fact, we are aware of the well oiled machinery by the APC for continuous campaign of calumny to discredit and demonize the PDP National Publicity
Secretary and other PDP leaders for no just cause.
'Nigerians often wonder why the APC is seen as a religious, violent and ethnic party. They can now see that this also has to do with the character and content of their spokesperson.
'Our final advice to Lai Mohammed regarding his incessant lies and insults is for him to seek professional help on his mental state before it becomes too late.'
