The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has condemned, in its entirety, the attack on former Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremmadu, by some Nigerians in Germany, at the weekend.
The former Deputy Senate President was attending the 2nd Igbo Annual Festival in Germany where he was duly scheduled as a speaker and special guest of honour when he was attacked.
The PDP, National Publicity Secretary Kola Ologbondiyan, in a press statement, said the attack on Ekweremadu was uncalled for, unprovoked and cannot be justified under any guise whatsoever.
The party added that such assault on a leader was completely unacceptable and does not portray the nation in proper light.
The PDP therefore charged the Nigerian Ambassador to Germany as well as the German government to take appropriate decisive action on the matter.
The party also urged the Federal Government, particularly, the National Assembly, to take urgent comprehensive steps to address issues leading to acts of resentment and agitations by Nigerians within and outside the country in the last four years, under President Muhammadu Buhari’s misrule.
