The All Progressives Congress (APC) says it is “psychotic hypocrisy” for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to fault court judgements that are against it and praise those that are in its favour.

The ruling party is reacting to PDP’s call for a review of verdicts that sacked its members as lawmakers in Plateau state.

In a statement on Thursday, Felix Morka, APC national spokesperson, said the opposition’s “harsh criticisms” of the judiciary are a threat to Nigeria’s democratic way of life.

“The PDP has maligned and poured invectives on our judges at every turn since its miserable performance in the general elections,” Morka said.

“When it is not accusing judges of bias or corruption, it is calling for the disbandment of some judicial panels. Yet, the same party has been the biggest beneficiary of the vibrancy and independence of the judiciary since the country’s return to civilian democracy in 1999.

“In its psychotic hypocrisy, the PDP screams to high heavens when court judgements are against it, but jubilantly extols verdicts by the same judiciary in its favour. Such anti-democratic and insanely manipulative politics is wrong and has got to stop.

“Indubitably, the PDP has lost its purpose, its essence, if it ever had any.”

The APC spokesperson said the PDP, as a ruling party, was a reckless rolling stone of corruption and underdevelopment, adding that in other democracies, opposition parties offer answers to important national questions.
