The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described the comments of the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, to the effect that there will no government in Bayelsa from Friday (today) as an “empty and inconsequential ranting”.
Following the Supreme Court judgment which sacked the governor-elect in the state, APC’s David Lyon and his deputy on Thursday, Oshiomhole, had contended that “no one can be sworn in in Bayelsa tomorrow (Friday) as no one met the constitutional requirement to be sworn in.”
However, the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement cautioned Oshiomhole to be mindful of his utterances and desist from all designs against Bayelsa State.
“The people of Bayelsa State knows as a fact that the Independent National Electoral Commission under our laws, cannot take instructions from any individual, let alone a factional national chairman of a political party like the APC.
“The PDP, as a law-abiding party, counsels Oshiomhole to rein in himself and desist from all 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 any individual,” the statement read in part.
