Secondus Reacts To Siege On Saraki And Ekweremadu
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has reacted to the siege laid by men of the police, EFCC operatives and the Department of State Security (DSS) on the residences of Senate President Bukola Saraki and his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu.
The party, in a statement in Abuja by its national chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, has said the time for Nigerians to defend its democracy is now.
Secondus also accused the President Buhari led administration of using the security outfits in the country to intimidate and attack the opposition and its perceived political enemies.
He said: “It now a known fact that democracy has now collapsed in Nigeria and we are now under a totalitarian and fascist government with no appetite for the opposition.
“President Muhammadu Buhari is a beneficiary of democratic election into power and since he took over on May 29th 2015 he has done nothing but destroy every fabric of democracy and the rule of law.
“We hereby call on all Nigerians home and abroad to immediately speak up against this act of gross violation of the constitution of Nigerian and the attempt disruption of the Democratic process and institutions by President Muhammadu Buhari and privatized members of the Nigerian security agencies.
“We call on all traditional rulers in Nigeria, the international community and all well-meaning Nigerians to rise up against the antics of President Muhammadu Buhari to forestall a possible derailment of our democracy. The time to act is now.”
