David Mark Condemns APC Supporters Attacks On Goodluck

Senate President David Mark yesterday condemned the All Progressives Congress (APC)’s persistent attacks on President Goodluck Jonathan and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) campaign train describing the act as “despicable.”
President Jonathan’s aides and the PDP campaign train were reportedly attacked in Katsina, Kano and Bauchi states by thugs believed to be supporters of the opposition political party.
Senator Mark said the at¬t...acks on the PDP is an affront on democracy and a betrayal of the peace pact entered into by the political parties and their candidates.
Also, Federal Capital Ter¬ritory Administration Minister, Senator Bala Mohammed and Niger State Governor Babangida Aliyu in separate remarks urged Nigerians to remain steadfast with the PDP.
The Senate President, who spoke at the flag-off of FCT PDP’s presidential and na¬tional assembly campaigns in Bwari Area Council on Friday said the conduct of supporters of the opposition party is condemnable by any right-thinking member of the society.
“We condemn this unwarranted, despicable and violent attacks on the PDP and its candidates. They have campaigned in other parts of the country without molesta¬tion. We should be allowed to campaign freely. The opposition must stop this despera¬tion and allow Nigerians to decide.
“This election must not be a do-or die-affair. The cam¬paign is an avenue to tell the electorate what you have done and what you intend to do for them. It should not be turned to a battle field.
“Any democracy that stops Nigerians from mov¬ing round freely is not the type of democracy we want. Nigerians must be free to go to the south and to the North without hinderance. Those who want to encourage hatred amongst Nigerians must think twice. We must allow for freedom of movement.
“We must allow people to campaign anywhere they want. Those of us who are at the helm of affairs must take full responsibility for any misconduct or misdemeanor of our supporters or follow¬ers.”
