PDP Bot Member Opposes Metuh, Explains Why Party Will Hang Buhari’s Portrait

A member, Peoples Democratic Party Board of Trustees, Chief Ebenezer Babatope, has said his party will hang the portrait of President Muhammadu Buhari in its national headquarters at the Wadata Plaza, in Abuja.

He spoke in response to an earlier comment by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh.

“We will never hang his portrait in this office, because President Buhari is not known to our party,” he said on Tuesday.

“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,”

“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 quipped.

But speaking to The Punch yesterday, Babatope said the President’s portrait should be hanged although the PDP leadership was trying to make a point by not hanging it.

His words: “The President represents Nigeria. He does not represent the narrow and parochial interest of the All Progressives Congress. He represents the larger interest of the people.

“The PDP may be making some points and I think Nigerians should hear them out before crucifying the party.

“The PDP will hang President Buhari’s portrait. Nigerians have spoken through the ballot. They’ve shown their preference for Buhari and we have accepted their verdict.

“We shouldn’t really have any problems with the portrait of Buhari. The APC should not try to mislead Nigeria.”
