The Southwest Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has challenged the
Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) to tell Nigerians whether or not the suspended President Court of Appeal (PCA), Justice Isa Ayo Salami is a member of the party (ACN).
The PDP in a release its Zonal Publicity Secretary, Hon. Kayode Babade wondered why ACN and its allies’ continuous attack on President Goodluck Jonathan and other notable individuals and institutions in the country over the suspension of Justice Salami is a confirmation that the ACN has interests different from the sanctity and uphold of the rule of law in the country.
The PDP, which also alleged that ACN leader, Bola Ahmed Tinubu was already plotting to bring pro-Salami reinstatement motion to the floor of the Senate added that a Senator from Katsina State is being persuaded to lead the plot and move the motion, with some other
Senators, mostly from the north being wooed into the plot, which is mainly to embarrass President Jonathan  and put him under fresh pressure.

The PDP said it was funny that the same ACN that kept silent when one of its governors, Dr. Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State refused to swear-in two people recommended for appointment as judges by the National Judicial Council (NJC) was the one attacking the president for choosing to toe the line of rule of law on the issue of Justice Salami.
While also hailing President Jonathan for standing on the rule of law on the Salami issue, the PDP said with over five cases pending in court there was no way a responsible president would act on an issue before a law court
