Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi has advised members of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP to refrain from insulting President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressive Congress, APC led Federal Government.
Umahi spoke at a gala night to celebrate 21 years of the creation of Ebonyi State and the 57th Independence anniversary of Nigeria in Abakaliki. He advised opposition politicians not to insult those in government but criticize them constructively.
“I always tell my people (PDP) that opposition at the centre is not about insults; I also advise the opposition in our state to toe the same line.
“Opposition is about constructive criticism, putting the leader in check and reminding him that he has not fulfilled the promises he made.
“It should not involve lying to the people, deceiving them and practising politics with bitterness and anger.
“I will ask our grandfathers who are tackling us to do so with wisdom and love because it is a shame that a grandfather would tackle his children,” he said.
