The All Progressives Congress (APC) has nothing to do with the reported police invitation of Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu,the party said yesterday.

It described a statement issued by images (1) download (3)party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as “an outlandish statement containing all sorts of imaginary claims.”

In a statement by APC National Publicity Secretary Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said it neither wrote a petition to the police nor is it aware that any petition was written against the Deputy Senate President.

Alhaji Lai Mohammed further  stated that  ”Forgery is a crime that is being regularly investigated by the police, and it beggars belief that such investigation will now be interpreted to mean that Nigeria is descending into dictatorship or that democracy and the enjoyment of personal freedoms are now endangered. These claims by the scaremongering PDP are far-fetched and preposterous,” it said.

he therefore explains that  if indeed there is a petition against Senator Ekweremadu, he should gladly heed the invitation by the police so he can clear his name, adding that no one is above the law.

”President Muhammadu Buhari has repeatedly said that at every point, the law must be supreme and everyone must respect the law, if the nation’s democratic system is to survive. Extrapolating a police invitation of anyone, no matter his status, to mean the onset of dictatorship is itself an invitation to lawlessness and anarchy, which permeated the long but ineffective rule of the PDP,” the party said.
