Chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP and ex-aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has insulted his party over its recent threat to sue Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara state over his defection to the All Progressives Congress, APC.
FFK, in a series of tweets on Tuesday, rubbished the party for attacking Matawalle, admonishing its leadership to go on a deep ‘introspection’ and ‘soul-searching’. He wrote;
“The threat by the @OfficialPDPNig to go to court to compel @Bellomatawalle1 to rescind his mandate for decamping to @OfficialAPCNg is senseless.”
“All the PDP Governor’s that got their mandate on the APC platform & later joined PDP would also be affected & should not complain. When they were PDP Governors and abandoned the party to join APC they were hailed. But now that some PDP Governors are moving to APC they are being threatened with litigation. This is a case of double standards. What is good for the goose is surely good for the gander.”
“In the last few months, PDP has lost 3 Governors and a handful of Senators and House Members. I can confirm that more surprises are coming soon. This should lead to a lot of soul-searching and introspection on the part of the PDP and not insults and threats of litigation.”
“You are meant to reach out to those that are aggrieved & u are not meant to insult them & tell them to go to hell. This lesson was taught long ago.”
“If u insist on treating them with contempt u may pay heavily for it later. In this game, everyone matters, no matter how big or small.”
PlatinumPost reports on Tuesday that the PDP has also lost two house of reps members and one senator in the national assembly.
