The PDP has refused to hang the official portrait of President Muhammadu Buhari at the party’s national secretariat, Wadata House national secretariat, located at Zone 5, Abuja, despite the fact that it has removed that of former President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan.
The National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Olisa Metuh on Tuesday said:
Metuh said the APC did not hang the portrait of former Pres. Jonathan in its offices while he was in office. Hence they wouldn't hang Pres Buhari's portrait because he is not a member of their party.
"We will never hang his portrait in this office, because President Buhari is not known to our party. He is not a leader of our party and therefore we will never put his portrait here. We are a political party, very partisan and therefore, we are not going to hide that,”
The APC National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Lai Mohammed, expressed shock at Metuh’s comment saying:
“This is ridiculous and we have no comment. Let Nigerians judge the PDP on this matter,” Mohammed said.
He said the PDP spokesman had a shallow understanding of the concept of opposition politics.
