The National leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has vowed, never to hang the official portrait of President Muhammadu Buhari at the party’s national secretariat.
According to The Punch publication, since President Buhari assumed office, the PDP has yet to hang his portrait at any of the offices in its Wadata House national secretariat, located at Zone 5, Abuja.
The party has also corroborated that it would never put Buhari’s portraits on its walls though it has removed that of the former President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, who ruled on the platform of the PDP.
The National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Olisa Metuh said, “We will never hang his portrait in this office, because President Buhari is not known to our party. He is not a leader of our party and therefore we will never put his portrait here. We are a political party, very partisan and therefore, we are not going to hide that.”
It would be recalled, the party had always been hanging the portraits of all the Presidents at the party’s reception area as well as the National Executive Committee and National Working Committee halls within the secretariat.
Metuh said the APC also did not hang the portrait of Jonathan in its offices before the former President was defeated in the March 28 election.
“Can you find out if the APC had the portrait of former President Jonathan in their office before he was defeated? That is just it,” he stated.
