The All Progressives Congress in Nasarawa State on Thursday cautioned the Peoples Democratic Party against overheating the polity with false propaganda.
The APC also warned the PDP to desist from misleading the people of the state, which the party claimed, was posing a threat to the unity and peace of the state.
The state Chairman of the APC, Aliyu Bello, who gave the warning while addressing journalists in Lafia, said it had become necessary for the ruling party to caution the opposition PDP and to set the record straight especially where the citizens were spoonfed with what it described as mischievous propaganda, and threats to the corporate existence of the state.
“Let me state here that Nasarawa is a peaceful state, inhabited by peaceful and loving people.
“The citizens are committed to peace irrespective of \linages, languages and religion they have chosen to practice as no one can claim superiority over others.
“It is against this fact that we have decided to respond varied misgivings and misrepresentation of facts as regard the appeal field by Abdullahi Sule at the court of appeal”, the party added.
He accused the PDP of misinterpreting statements from government officials, making “mountains out of molehills,” and practicing “people deceiving people” in their pursuit of power.
According to him. the recent controversial judgment delivered in favour of the PDP in the Governorship Election Petition Tribunal is being appealed to correct the wrong.
Bello warned against the PDP’s supporters turning into “political extremists and fundamentalists engaging in divisive actions and rhetoric”.
