DP commends Senate for Confirming New Service Chiefs, Says It’s A Triumph Of Nationalism


The leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has commended the
Senate for going ahead to thoroughly screen and clear the new Service
Chiefs in spite of the “wicked plot by the APC to stall the process.”

PDP National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh in a statement on
Thursday said “in completely ignoring the APC, the lawmakers have shown
that they are indeed statesmen who are alive to their constitutional
responsibilities for which they were elected by Nigerians”.

The party commended the APC senators who participated in the exercise
for their commitment to nation building, applauding them for rejecting
the parochial directive of their desperate party leaders.

The party said the lawmakers have “rekindled the hope of Nigerians in
the National Assembly as the last defence for democracy” adding that it
is “highly impressed by the roles the Senate and its leadership have
been playing to ensure the stability of the nation.”

The ruling party also urged the lawmakers to continue to ignore the APC
by accelerating the consideration and passage of the 2014 budget and all
other bills pending before them in the national interest.

On its own part, the PDP assured that it will continue to be committed
to national unity, peace, security and welfare of all Nigerians at all
times and urged Nigerians to continue to give support to its programmes
and government at all levels.
