Nigerians have taken to social media to express mixed reactions over the threat made by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to pull out of the peace accord signed with the All Progressives Congress (APC) and other political parties ahead of the 2019 elections.
The opposition party threatened to pull out over a recent statement made by Kaduna state governor, Nasir El-Rufai.
Governor El-Rufai on an NTA live programme had said any “foreign power” that tries to intervene in the forthcoming general elections would go back to their country in body bags.
Also, reacting to the comment by El-Rufai, Senator Shehu Sani who represents Kaduna Central at the Senate condemned it. He said Nigerians and the international community must not take it lightly.
According to him, the sources and plots of violence is now clear.
Chinedu Njoku who reacted to the threat by PDP on Facebook commended the party for arriving at the decision to pull out of the accord.
On his part, Dike Nwabueze argued that there is no other option than for the "PDP to get every plan ready to defend our votes".
However, Tunde Famu claimed that in 2015: "APC and other political parties never said this upon all inciting statements from PDP and its supporters. Instead APC concentrated on their campaigns."
Abdussalami Bin Abdulganiyyi in his reaction said: "Do you think 9 millions children school feeding beneficiary parents will reject PMB? Do you know how many children PMB has taken away from the street and in school just because of school feeding? Do you think Pensioners (Nitel, FAAN, Delta Aladja, Biafra Soldiers etc) being owed for over years that were paid by PMB will reject him?
"Do you think farmers that suddenly became rich due to the policy of the government and fertilizer provisions will reject PMB? Do you think tight thinking Easterners that were denied 2nd Niger bridge will reject PMB.?
"Do you think beneficiaries in Ariara market electrification project will reject PMB? Do you think road users on Onitsha Enugu Road, Enugu PH road Jebba Road, Lagos Ibadan roads etc will reject PMB?
"Do you think Nigerians that will be using the Improved Railways service will reject PMB? Do you know how many small scaled petty petty business owners that PMB has helped through Trademoni?
