Nigeria’s Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, has labeled the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) “reckless and desperate”, over their claims that the federal government and the All Progressives Congress (APC), intended to obtain an interim court order to declare the Senate President seat vacant.
Following the defection of Bukola Saraki from APC to the PDP, the ruling party had called on him to step down as leader of the upper legislative chamber.
In a statement, Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP National Publicity Secretary, said the party had credible information that “some cabals in the presidency and APC had perfected a plan to institute a lawsuit to challenge the validity of Saraki’s seat with the sole aim of securing a fraudulent injunction to force him out of office pending the determination of the substantive suit”.
Responding to the allegations, Mohammed said the PDP resorted to making allegations without proof, because the party has run out of ideas.
“Few days back, the PDP claimed that there were plans to invade the senate and sack Saraki. Today, they said we are planning to use the court to sack Saraki. Nigerians are tired of all these false allegations,” Mohammed said.
“The PDP is reckless and desperate. They are afraid of their own shadows. They are so troubled and have gone out of ideas and make allegations without proofs.
“This is a government that believes in the rule of law. These constant falsehoods are a threat to the peace and security of this country.”
