PDP Media Watchdog is not the mouthpiece of the Party… But a Political Pressure Group
The PDP Media Watchdog has welcomed the clarification by the mouthpiece of our great party, Chief Olisa Metuh who responded to a statement by our group on Wednesday June 17, disowning the watchdog for calling on President Buhari to resign as President if he cannot deliver on his campaign promises due to his complain of fatigue and age.
The group while accepting the clarification said that the PDP Media Watchdog cannot speak for the PDP which is the sole responsibility of the National Publicity Secretary and other designated leaders of the Party but will continue to perform her role as a Pressure Group in constructive criticism of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) for blackmailing Nigerians to vote them into power.
“The PDP Media Watchdog is not the mouthpiece of our great Party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the job of the National Publicity Secretary of our party is clearly and well defined in the Party Constitution and as law abiding and loyal members of the party, we cannot and will not go against that but as is the usual practice in a democracy where everyone has the freewill to express his or her opinion on matters of National interest, the watchdog will continue to monitor events in the APC administration and provide fair criticism when necessary” the group said.
The group laud Chief Olisa Metuh, the party’s spokesman for the clarification and thanked members of the PDP nationwide for maintaining their calm in the face of this glaring deceit and hypocrisy of the APC in the last three weeks of President Buhari’s administration.
