The Minister of State for Labour and Productivity, Mr Festus Keyamo, has described the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as a very unserious opposition.
Keyamo said this while condemning the PDP’s reaction to the judgement of the Supreme Court which removed Mr Emeka Ihedioha as the governor of Imo State.
The minister during an interview with reporters on Wednesday while attending an event in Ughelli, Delta State described the PDP as “ an opposition that is a very unserious opposition; an opposition that is not ready to take but they are ready to give.”
Platform Times recalls that PDP a statement by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan rejected the judgement and queried how Uzodinma who came fourth could be declared as the winner of the election.
Keyamo urged the members of the opposition party to apologise to Nigerians, adding that their reaction was not only objective but ‘extremely provocative’
“PDP is an opposition that takes the benefit from the system; from a particular institution and they don’t want to take the downs from that same institution.
“The same court that gave them victories and excluded us entirely in Rivers State, excluded us entirely in Zamfara State; is that the same kangaroo court?
“How can democrats come out and make such very inciting statement? I think it is an irresponsible statement.
“It doesn’t even deserve a response and they need to apologise to Nigerians and to the Supreme Court; it’s extremely provocative,” Keyamo added.
