THE Niger Delta Indigenous Movement for Radical Change (NDIMRC) has knocked the All Progressives Congress (APC) for raining insults on President Goodluck Jonathan, saying the party was behaving like a rejected child.

In a press statement signed by its President, Nelly Emma; Secretary, John Sailor and Public Relations Officer, Stanley Mukoro, the group noted with total dismay the insults poured on President Jonathan recently by the party describing it as unfortunate and urged the party to respect the Presidency.

The group while lambasting the APC for not seeing anything good in the administration of President Jonathan said that the Party was dead on arrival and had nothing to offer Nigerians.

The group wrote thus; “Our attention has been drawn to the recent insults rained on President Goodluck Jonathan by the APC and we wish to condemn same. The party as far as we are concerned is dead on arrival and has shown in so many ways that it has nothing to offer Nigerians, other than criticizing the good works of President Jonathan.

It added that; “We have seen that the APC is not the Messiah that Nigerians are waiting for. APC is behaving like a rejected child; the leaders of the party are political liabilities to the nation and people and this is why Nigerians should continue to support the administration of President Jonathan and back him for the 2015 Presidential Election because the President has done so much for the country in the last few years.”

Warning the Party to refrain from abusing President Jonathan, the group stated that; “The Party must accord the President the desired respect as done in a civilized society. We are not going to accept any insult on the President again from APC, a party that is hungry for power, yet it has nothing to offer the Nigerian people. We want the APC to respect the Presidency, enough is enough.”

While describing APC as a bad omen for the country with no clear cut manifesto for Nigerians, NDIMRC posited that “President Jonathan will not b distracted by the empty criticisms of APC. The President is committed to the building of a united Nigeria. The President will not relent in his drive to transform the nation social, economic and political landscape”

“President Jonathan has a deep commitment to improving our lot and he will not let Nigerians down. The APC should wake up from its slumber, but Nigerians are already aware that the party is not the better alternative Nigerians are waiting for. As a group, we are not going to tolerate any further insult on the illustrious son of the Niger Delta region, President Jonathan who has done so much for the country than past Presidents,” the group added.

According to the group also; “It is uncultured and disrespectful for the APC to insult the office of the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
