The Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) has accused the PDP of being unrelenting in its grim determination to overheat the polity and set the country on fire, if that will satisfy one man's personal ambition to hold on to power.
In a statement issued in Lagos on Sunday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said it was left with no choice than to reach that conclusion after a faction of Rivers PDP reportedly loyal to President Goodluck Jonathan expelled the state Governor, Hon. Chibuike Amaechi, at a time all people of goodwill were calling for a resolution
of the lingering crisis.
It warned that the overzealous ruling party's sole interest is power, without caring about the responsibility that goes with it, hence it must be checked through all constitutional means before it plunges the country into unmitigated chaos.
ACN said while whatever transpired within the PDP is not its business, its (ACN's) concerns stem from the dangerous impact that the Rivers crisis can have on the polity, especially its implication for the country's fledgling democracy, to which most of the rabble-rousers in the ongoing crisis contributed nothing.
