People Democratic Party (PDP) presidential aspirant, Atiku Abubakar, has praised Acting President Yemi Osinbajo for heeding the call of Nigerians by taking action to “halt the illegal and anti-democratic siege” of the National Assembly by men of the Department of State Security.
Abubakar, in a statement in Abuja, applauded the sack of the Director General of DSS, Mr. Lawal Daura, stating that the action was needed at a time when Nigerians were no longer ready to tolerate such anti-democracy actions.
The former Vice President gave his utmost backing to the move and called on all statesmen and political leaders to put aside partisanship and rally round the acting President during these fragile times for our democracy.
The former Vice President of the country further called for an independent judicial panel of inquiry to investigate Tuesday’s incidence at the National Assembly, to get to the root of the matter so that those responsible can be identified and punished.
“These are delicate times for Nigeria and all lovers of democracy and the rule of law must be extra watchful, lest anti-democratic forces take advantage of all we have worked hard to build,” he added.Copyright Naija News 2018.
