Don't Allow You're Environment To Turn Into Haven For Anti-Democracy Conspirators - PDP Tells UK

The opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has urged the British Government to smoke President Muhammadu Buhari out of London as he was allegedly hiding in its capital to perpetrate evil against Nigeria’s democracy.

The PDP made the call on Tuesday after some masked operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) besieged the National Assembly, preventing lawmakers from gaining access to the premises.

The opposition party, which commended Vice President Yemi Osinbajo for sacking the Director-General of DSS, Lawal Daura, over the siege, accused the just resigned Senate Minority Leader, Dr Godswill Akpabio, of concretizing the NASS invasion during his recent visit to President Buhari in London.

The PDP National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, who spoke in a statement by his media aide, Ike Abonyi, urged the British Government to “not allow its environment be turned into a haven for anti-democracy conspirators.”

According to Secondus, “the siege in National Assembly leaves no one doubt that President Muhammadu Buhari and his ruling APC are out to destroy this hard earned democracy all because they can no longer fit into it.

The party’s chairman equally noted that the sacking of Daura shows that “Nigeria cannot be hijacked and ruled by cabals.”

Speaking further, Secondus said: “When an executive arm in a democratic setting muscles up other arms of government, the correct name for such administration is autocracy and dictatorship.

“Nigerians and international community have continuously watched this administration, harass and intimidate the legislature and Judiciary as well as others in opposition in their bid to create a dictatorial regime.

“All over the World, the parliament is the bastion of democracy and rule of law anybody not willing to alien himself to them is trying to create anarchy in the land.

“The actions of the security agencies this morning clearly shows a drowning man who is totally alienated from happenings around his environment and suddenly wants to survive when the ship is already wrecked.

The National Chairman then “called on President Buhari to resign and pave way for the sustenance of democracy since it is now obvious that he has lost legitimacy to continue as an elected President.”

He said, “No amount of intimidation and harassment will deter lovers of democracy from pushing for the extinction of this wicked regime.

“Nigerians passed through this route before in their struggle to restore democracy in this country and the will of the people and that of the almighty prevailed and this time cannot be an exception.

“We are aware that when a regime exhausts idea of what to do and loses the legitimacy that brought it to power, it could be dangerous like a bull in China shop but truth is that Nigeria will survive this regime and laugh last,” he said.
