In case you missed it: How APC responded to Ekweremadu’s attack in Germany

The National Chairman of APC, Adams Oshiomhole

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has responded to the attack on Ex-Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu in Germany.

APC in its reaction issued by Lanre Issa-Onilu, its National Publicity Secretary, vehemently condemned the senator’s unfortunate attack.

According to the ruling party, those involved in Ekweremadu’s physical assault which it described as a despicable action were unworthy in character.

“No Nigerian should be assaulted in the manner Senator Ekweremadu was. It is an indecent action and it is below the acceptable standard of behaviour expected of our citizens whether in Nigeria or abroad.

“It is however regrettable that some of the people and organisations who had offered these irresponsible elements open support in the past are raising their voices now.”

APC further blamed the strongest opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for supporting IPOB.

The President Muhammadu Buhari led APC government had few years ago proscribed and declared IPOB spearheaded by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu a terrorist organization. But Ekweremadu’s party, PDP, was one of the group’s sympathizers.

“The PDP and its leaders chose to play politics over a matter that called for collective patriotic actions when IPOB raised a terror group in the South-East.

“It is clear that the PDP and its other shortsighted co-travellers who were the main cheerleaders of IPOB owe this country an apology. IPOB hid under regional identity to perpetrate criminality having recruited some misguided elements and miscreants.

“Are we surprised by the PDP’s hypocritical reaction to the unfortunate attack on Senator Ekweremadu? No!

“The PDP and their leaders have acted true to type. This is what happens when politicians become myopic and allow narrow sentiments becloud their sense of judgement.

“We all have a responsibility to collectively rise against evil wherever we find it and in whatever guise it appears. We hope lessons have been learnt from this unfortunate incident.”
