- PDP has sent a powerful message to Oshiomhole over his comments on Supreme Court judgement
- The apex court had on Thursday, February 13, sacked David Lyon as governor-elect of the state
- Kola Ologbondiyan, the party's spokesman, however, warned Oshiomhole to steer clear of the state
Following the threat by the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, that its governorship candidate in Bayelsa state, Douye Diri, would not be sworn-in on Friday, February 14, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has sent a powerful message to the former governor of Edo state.
Legit.ng reports that the party in a statement issued on Thursday, February 13, by its national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, described the comments made by Oshiomhole on the ruling of the Supreme Court on the Bayelsa state governorship election as an empty and inconsequential ranting.
The party warned Oshiomhole to steer clear of Bayelsa state, adding that his apparent plots to trigger violence in the state has failed.
The PDP further counseled Oshiomhole to be careful with his utterances and not use any forms of venomous garrulity and clear misuse of language to destabilize the nation and truncate the hard-earned democracy.
"The people of Bayelsa state knows as a fact that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) under our laws, cannot take instructions from any individual, let alone a factional national chairman of a dysfunctional political party like the APC.
"The PDP, as a law-abiding party, counsels Oshiomhole to rein in himself and desist from all odious 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 the ranting of any individual who has no stake whatsoever in the wellbeing of his own home state," he said.
The Supreme Court had ruled that the offence committed by Degi-Eremieoyo affected the legitimacy of his joint ticket with Lyon.
