The Anambra State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has urged the Governor of the state, Chukwuma Soludo to stop attacking critics of his administration.
The PDP spokesman in Anambra, Uloka Chibuike, stated this in a press statement issued on Tuesday.
Chibuike said the continued verbal assaults against critics and commentators suggested that the Soludo administration was “adrift and marooned”.
He said the governor should remember that he occupies a public position of trust and he should expect the people to demand accountability.
He said, “He must be reminded that the Anambra State Government House is not his private business from which he launches attacks and throws punches at those with whom he has family or business disagreements; he must be accountable to the people of the state.
“The recent attacks by the Press Secretary and other senior aides of the governor against critics of his administration, policies, and supposed accomplishments, which can only be described as minimal or next to nothing compared to what was promised, portray him as someone who is struggling, unpopular, and has no substantial scorecard.
“The continuous verbal assaults against critics and commentators suggest that the current government is adrift and marooned.
“Critics and commentators are not adversaries of the government, but rather, citizens who want to see the government keep their promises and make suggestions on how the government might improve.
“It is unacceptable for Soludo to become defensive and resort to verbal onslaught when reminded that there is little evidence on the ground to justify his 19 months in office.”
