- On protest march over security
- Insist Buhari must quit
BY EDMOND ODOK, ABUJA – The Leadership, lawmakers and supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Friday made good their promise of protesting at the embassies of the United States (US) and the United Kingdom (UK) in Abuja.
However, for some unexplainable reasons, the protesters shelved their earlier planned visit to the European Union (EU) embassy in Abuja, the nation’s capital
Offering insight on the protest march, National Chairman of the country’s main opposition party, Prince Uche Secondus, said their mission was to present PDP’s petition, detailing the grievances of Nigerians, to the respective embassies.
Prince Secondus claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari (rtd) and his All Progressives Congress (APC) administration have lost control of the nation’s security and he should therefore resign from office immediately.
Furthermore, the PDP Chairman alleged that the judiciary as well as the legislature have been caged by the tyrannical attitude exhibited by the executive arm of government.
Similarly, the protesters frowned at the January 14, 2020 Supreme Court judgement that sacked Emeka Ihedioha as the Governor of Imo State, and called for its review in the interest of justice and fairness.
Insiders however hinted that the PDP plans to issue an official statement on the protest march later in the day.
