“The party asserts that Senator Adeyemi exhibited a high level of irresponsibility by using the privileges of the Senate Chamber to engage in unprovoked disparagement of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu and the entire people of Abia state, who had not offended him in any way.
“It is indeed unfortunate that Senator Adeyemi, whose words were respected by Nigerians while he was in the PDP has become so corrupted by his sojourn in the APC, that he has completely lost his mind just to satisfy some new gods.
“Senator Adeyemi must have noted the widespread national detestation and opprobrium that he had brought to himself by his unguarded comment against the highly respected Ikpeazu and the people of Abia state.
“Moreover, our party has equally noted that Senator Adeyemi’s uncouth comment is borne out of bitter envy for the achievements of Ikpeazu in every sector of life in Abia state, which no APC governor, including Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State, can compare.
“The PDP, therefore, issues a very strong warning that it would not stomach any such unwarranted and unprovoked attack on any of our governors but will deploy all instruments provided in a democratic setting against such individual.
“Our party, however, urges Ikpeazu not to be distracted by sidetracking elements such as Senator Adeyemi but to continue to deliver the dividends of democracy to his people,” the statement said.
