Nigeria’s ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said there is “emerging height of political tension” in Lagos and Ekiti, following conflicts between members of the two parties.

In a statement, PDP spokesperson Olisa Metuh urged the president-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, of the All Progressives Congress (APC), to call his party members and supporters, particularly those in Lagos and Ekiti, to keep in order.
Metuh described out-going APC legislators’ impeachment of Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti as “senseless and unpatriotic.”

He said the PDP totally reject the “flimsy and unsubstantiated allegations” against Fayose.
He also decried the alleged death threats on non-indigenes of Lagos state by a prominent local chief if they voted for a PDP candidate in the coming state governor elections.

Metuh said it was “the peaceful atmosphere and level playing ground nurtured by the PDP-led administration” that ensured Buhari’s emergence at the March 28 presidential polls.

“Our country cannot at this moment afford to slide into anarchy, reign of terror and deliberate schemes to divide the people for selfish political reasons,” he said.

Metuh called on the international community to take note of the current happenings in the country.

There has been a huge protest in Ado Ekiti, capital of Ekiti state, against the move of Ekiti State House of Assembly to impeach the state governor, over alleged constitutional breaches, with heavy security put in place in the city.
