Ayo Balogun, Lagos
The Lagos State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Sunday called on the security agencies to interrogate the National Leader of the All Progressve Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu for making a ‘reckless’ statement.
The PDP, in a statement stated that Tinubu on April 23 during his investiture as the Chancellor, Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) Ogbomosho, Osun State had said that anyone who attempted to rig the upcoming elections in Ekiti and Osun States would be roasted.
The statement signed by its Publicity Secretary, Taofik Gani said Tinubu’s utterance was capable of worsening the security challenges facing the country, adding that the statement was criminal and there was need to get the APC leader to explain details of his utterances.
“We are indeed worried that such inflammatory, inciting and criminal pronouncement can be made in our country at this period that we are confronted with serious security problems. The statement must not be treated with kid gloves as it may ignite conflagration in the South-West region,” it stated.
The party appealed to politicians to have trust in the law courts to punish election offenders, saying that the peace and tranquility of the country must supersede all personal interests.
