The ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said last night that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is apprehensive, hence its call for an international probe of the activities of Boko Haram to put to rest once and for all, the constant accusation that the opposition party has links with the terrorist sect.
The statement, signed by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, said: “The party finds it very curious that the statement by the APC calling for international enquiry to unravel the sponsors of terrorism in the country is coming less than one week after an inquest into its links with insurgency was tabled before the British Parliament.
“Indeed, the APC statement betrays a party that has become unsettled and highly apprehensive following the increasing demand by the British parliamentarians for an enquiry into their links with the insurgency and violence ravaging our dear nation.
“We ask, is the APC in a desperate move to pre-empt the British Parliament for fear of indictment or are they seeking to promote an orchestrated inquest to exonerate themselves?
“We urge Nigerians to see beyond the surface, to continue to be alert and note the actions of the APC and their efforts to frustrate genuine fight against insurgency and terrorism in our country”.
