APC Feels They Don’t Need The People Since They Have The Military – Secondus


BY AMOS DUNIA, ABUJA – The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus has declared that President Muhammadu Buhari and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), have diminished the value of Nigerians in a democracy by choosing to use the military to get what Nigerian voters cannot give them.

He said the development has resulted in the APC not needing Nigerians since they have the military might to purchase power for them in a democracy.

Secondus, who stated these while declaring open the expanded caucus meeting of the PDP that took place at its Wadata Plaza headquarters on Monday, said that what obtains in the country today as witnessed on February 23, Presidential and National Assembly election is a full blown dictatorship.

A statement from his media office quoted the PDP National Chairman as saying that; “after using the military to kill and maim citizens of the South South region, and further suppress the people from exercising their civic duties, APC in connivance with officials of the independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and security agencies went ahead to manipulate the result of the voters.

Secondus berated the administration for their various electoral criminalities and called for immediate and unconditional release from incarceration, the two personal staff of the PDP, Presidential flag bearer Barrister Uyi Giwa Osagie his lawyer and Alhaji Abdullahi Babalele his son in-law, who he called political prisoners.

He wondered why Nigerian leaders are keeping quiet in the face of blatant abuse of human rights and electoral brigandage.

The PDP National Chairman reminded the Chairman of INEC, Prof Mahmood Yakubu and members of the Electoral Commission as well as operatives of the military that are making themselves willing tools for the APC that history is recording their activities and at the appropriate time, they will answer for their deeds.

Secondus admonished both operatives of INEC and security agencies to be professional and leave politics for politician.

The National Chairman charged members of the party across the country to stay strong pointing out that the stolen mandate must be returned to the party as there is no going back on the resolve to seek justice in the court.

Prince Secondus also spoke on the situation in Lagos state where PDP supporters were stopped from voting on February 23, Presidential poll adding that plans are still on to repeat the same obnoxious act on Saturday during the gubernatorial elections.

The expanded caucus meeting of the party is part of the consultations the leadership of the party has been carrying on to update its members through the leaders, of the steps being taken to recover the mandate the Nigerian people freely gave to the PDP Presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
