APC planning to cripple democracy in Nigeria, PDP alleges
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), yesterday accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of a plot to to overthrow the democratic rights of Nigerians.
PDP national chairman, Umar Damagum stated this at a media briefing at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja.
Damagum alleged that a cabal in the Presidency was determined to overturn the will of Nigerians to favour the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He claimed that there is an ongoing design by APC to “cripple democracy, overthrow the democratic rights of Nigerians, suppress the rule of law and downgrade our nation to a fiefdom run by the whims of a cabal.”
Damagum said it has become pertinent to alert Nigerians that the country is “fast sliding into totalitarianism following the activities of a cabal in the Presidency, which is out to emasculate institutions of democracy, especially the judiciary, in the desperation to subvert and overturn the expressed will of Nigerians in the various election matters across the country.”
This is coming after the PDP spokesman, Debo Ologunagba, accused the cabal in the Presidency of trying to slide Nigeria into anarchy and totalitarianism.
Ologunagba claimed that the cabal in the Presidency was trying to use the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the judiciary to throw Nigeria into anarchy.
Recall that some recent post governorship elections cases in court have turned out to be in favour of APC in states like Kano and Zamfara where PDP had earlier been sworn-in.
