APC to PDP: Abaribe must retract ‘careless comments’ on Yahaya Bello

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has asked the opposition Peoples Democratic Gathering (PDP) to ask its Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, to withdraw 'the expressions at the floor of the Senate' against Governor Yahaya Bello and individuals of Kogi state. 

The ruling party said it is on record through a vedio available for use that Senator Abaribe made an 'unfortunate and false verbal attacks to discredit Yahaya Bello before Senator Smart Adeyemi answered him. 

The APC was responding to an assertion by the PDP requesting that Senator Adeyemi withdraw and apologize to governor Okezie Victor Ikpeazu of Abis state 

Yet, in a proclamation signed Monday in Abuja by the APC's acting Deputy National Publicity Secretary Yekini Nabena, the ruling party said "a cautious scrutiny of current realities on ground shows unmistakably that Senator Adeyemi's reaction was started by Abaribe's unbidden and ridiculous expressions at the floor of the Senate." 

"We make reference to the deplorable video by Senator Abaribe against His Excellency, Governor Yahaya Adoza Bello, which has been circling on most online media stages. True to sah, the expression of Senator Smart Adeyemi was promptly attracted to the video by benevolent kogites who were upset by the lie of its content.

While clarifying all the attempts made to get Abaribe to withdraw his assault on Yahaya Bello, APC said: "three Senators representing Kogi state, Adeyemi inclusive, moved toward Senator Abaribe, demanding that his false and malicious expressions were not simply an attack on the Governor of Kogi state, however to all Nigerian youth who have aspiration to serve our great nation, Nigeria. They attempted without luck to convince Abaribe to withdraw the verbal and inappropriate assault on His Excellency, Governor Yahaya Adoza Bello especially as the content were completely false and not a genuine reflection of the Governor, or the situation in Kogi. 

"The senators moved toward him in an offer to helping a generally bad circumstance. However, Abaribe fervently wouldn't regard their call for peace. Or maybe, he demanded that he would not disassociate himself from the video, expressing in what might have all the earmarks of being challenging their bluff, that Governor Bello ought to dissmiss his desire to pursue any position come 2023 and unmistakably said that he will neither withdraw nor apologize. 

"It is on record that Abaribe made heinous and verbal attacks to disparage Governor Yahaya Bello. He actually admitted to this on the floor of the senate. How the PDP have advantageously edited this fact from the arrangement of occasions is improper. In fact, if there is any apology to be offered, it ought to be by Senator Abaribe who should withdraw each assertion in the video as of now moving, trashing the accomplishment and the individual of Governor Bello. Senator Abaribe's expressions were bogus, false and noxious however above all, totally unprovoked What's more, on this note, we demand that he should freely pull out the false proclamations made by him, or be set up to confront the full brunt of the law." 

APC portrayed Senator Smart Adeyemi as a high positioning Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria with an impressive history and antecedents to show for it.
