PDP criticising Remi Tinubu for berating Smart Adeyemi during plenary



The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Wednesday, April 28, berated Senator Oluremi Tinubu for criticising Senator Smart Adeyemi who expressed passionate concerns over the worsening security situation in the country at the floor of the upper chamber on Tuesday.

1st News had gathered that Adeyemi, who represents Kogi West Senatorial District, while making his contribution on Tuesday, had shed tears but the wife of APC chieftain, Bola Tinubu, was not moved by Adeyemi’s tears. Rather she described him as a “wolf in sheep’s clothing”.

However, in its statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP on Wednesday said, “Our party has already been made aware of how the APC has been gaging its members from speaking out against the failure of the Buhari Presidency and the APC to tackle insecurity in our country.

“Nigerians are invited to note how APC Senator Smart Adeyemi, who dared to speak out against the failure of the Buhari Presidency on the floor of the Senate, was reminded by Senator Remi Tinubu that he, Senator Adeyemi, is not a member of the PDP and as such should not show concern to the ugly situation in our country.

“From the comment of Senator Tinubu, it is instructive to note that the APC and their leaders had turned their backs on Nigerians and that it is only the senators, members and other leaders elected on the platform of the PDP that are concerned about the plight of citizens at this critical time.”

The statement further read, “It is a mark of failure that the Buhari Presidency and the APC appear unconcerned as terrorists and bandits take control of various parts of our country and even hoisted their flags in Shiroro, Niger state, a distance of about 200 kilometres to our Federal Capital Territory Abuja.

“The Buhari Presidency and the APC appear unperturbed and are only interested in their 2023 power-grabbing plot while terrorists are having a field day plundering and murdering our compatriots on daily basis.”

“Our party urges Nigerians not to resign to fear and despondency but brace up and work together as a people in the defence of our nation as the Buhari Presidency and the APC have shown that they are not committed to the security and wellbeing of our nation,” the PDP stated.
