PDP blasts Senator Adeyemi over verbal attack on Ikpeazu
Tiamiyu Saheed Oluwatosin
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has issued a stern warning to the lawmaker representing Kogi West senatorial District, Smart Adeyemi over his outburst against Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu on Tuesday.
Press reports that Adeyemi had during plenary on Tuesday described Ikpeazu as a drunkard, a statement that has continued to attract condemnation.
In a statement it posted on Twitter on Wednesday, the PDP said it would not stomach any such unwarranted and unprovoked attack on any of its governors but will deploy all instruments provided in a democratic setting against such individuals.
The party asserts that “Senator Adeyemi exhibited a high level of irresponsibility by using the privileges of the Senate Chamber to engage in unprovoked disparagement of @GovernorIkpeazu and the entire people of Abia state, who had not offended him in any way.
“It is indeed unfortunate that Senator Adeyemi, whose words were respected by Nigerian People while he was in the @OfficialPDPNig has become so corrupted by his sojourn in the @OfficialAPCNg, that he has completely lost his mind just to satisfy some new gods.”
The party said that Senator Adeyemi must have noted the widespread national detestation and opprobrium that he had brought to himself by his unguarded comment against the highly respected @GovernorIkpeazu and the people of Abia state.
“Moreover, our party has equally noted that Senator Adeyemi’s uncouth comment is borne out of bitter envy for the achievements of @GovernorIkpeazu in every sector of life in Abia state, which no @OfficialAPCNg governor, including Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State, can compare.
“Our party however urges @GovernorIkpeazu not to be distracted by sidetracking elements such as Senator Adeyemi, but to continue to deliver the dividends of democracy to his people.”
