President Goodluck Jonathan
By Onyebuchi Ezigbo
The Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) has described as irresponsible, cheap and inflammatory the impression given by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that President Goodluck Jonathan is being criticized by the opposition because he is from a minority geo-political zone.
In a statement issued on Wednesday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party expressed disappointment that a party which flaunts its 'nationalist' credentials will stoop so low as to stoke the fire of sectional politics.
The party rejected PDP's view, saying as a democratically-elected leader, President Jonathan is subject to criticism from those who elected him into office as well as the opposition, which has a stake in the well-being of the country.
