Don’t mortgage Nigeria’s unity for personal interests, PDP replies Clark
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has admonished political leaders to desist from using their comments to stoke the embers of discord between the North and the South ahead of the general elections.
Spokesman of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council, Mr. Charles Aniagwu, gave the advice at a news conference on Friday in Asaba.
He said the party’s Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar and his running mate, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa were prepared to keep to the terms of the peace accord midwifed by very notable Nigerians principally the former Head of State, Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar and the very revered Bishop of the Catholic Church, Hassan Kukah and indeed other members of the National Peace Accord Committee.
He stressed that the promotion of peace was necessary to achieve the much needed development in the country.
He advised Pa Clark not to mortgage the unity of Nigeria at the expense of his preferences, pointing out that Nigeria’s unity was paramount to the continued existence of the country.
According to him, the PDP will continue to accord enormous respect to persons in the category of Chief Edwin Clark, but in the midst of that, we will also advise that, in line with the need to promote unity and the peace of this country, elders must make comments that are in line with our desire to remain as one country.
