PDP Condemns House Brawl, Accuses President Buhari Of Bias

Olisa Metuh. National Publicity Secretary, PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has condemned as a show of shame and national embarrassment, Thursday’s fracas by disgruntled All Progressives Congress (APC) members in the House of Representatives.

It said that the ugly development brings to question President Muhammadu Buhari and his party’s commitment to democracy, unity and the stability of the country.

The PDP said the disgraceful act is a direct consequence of President Buhari’s lack of democratic credentials to reign in his party to respect the independence and sanctity of the legislative arm of government, the very citadel of democracy, as enshrined in the nation’s constitution.


PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh in a statement on Thursday said: “the barbaric attempt to physically assault a duly elected Speaker, seize the mace, the authority of the House, is a direct attack on the Nigerian parliament which embodies the supremacy of the people and our freedom as a democratic nation”.

The party said what Nigerians witnessed in the House on Thursday clearly underscores the fact that the APC has exhausted its excuses and has now imported its internal contradictions into an independent arm of government as a way to further cover its lack of ideas for governance.
