BY AMOS DUNIA, ABUJA – The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) on Tuesday declared that it has uncovered yet another plot by the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal Government to further endanger the nation’s democracy and push the country closer to the edge of the cliff preparatory to finally pushing it over for total destruction.
The CUPP in a statement made available to Forefront News in Abuja, said the latest dastardly act by the anti-democratic forces of the APC include the surreptitious filing of a suit and seeking out a compromised judge who will in controversial circumstances grant an ex-parte application directing that one third of the Senators/House members can demand to open either Chambers of the National Assembly.
The CUPP statement which was signed by its National spokesman, Mr. further said that it has been informed that the plot also includes the Police inviting the leadership of the National Assembly just before the controversial ruling and their subsequent detention with a black market injunction from a Magistrate Court thereby paving way for the unlawful and violent change of the leadership of the Senate and House of Representatives.
These were contained in a statement by the National spokesman of the CUPP Mr. Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere, who further said that the plot include that some security agencies would provide security cover for the “coupists” while a section of the media has been coopted to churn out news and justification for such evil plots.
Ugochinyere also said; “This kind of desperation by the outgoing APC and Presidency can only be likened to the last kicks of a dying horse which usually gives it the hope that it will salvage the head which is already off.
“The ship of the APC is fast sinking and is obviously beyond redemption. Nigerians are daily convinced that the APC was a mistake made in 2015 and are also resolved that they are a mistake to be corrected in 2019.
“It is worrisome that the Party entrusted by Nigerians to provide leadership, growth and development for the country could in one plot compromise the judiciary, the legislature, the Police, the Department of State Services, the media and indeed all institutions of our democracy.”
The CUPP said in the coming days, Nigerians and indeed all lovers of democracy the world over are hereby placed on alert to watch out for the unfolding of the plot and call on the Presidency and the APC not to destroy the nation’s democracy before they leave office as Nigerians have rejected them and cannot wait to send them packing in the next general elections.
It equally called on the international community to place key members of the APC-led Federal government on watch list and ensure they have no hiding place anywhere in the world should anything happen to Nigeria’s democracy.
