The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus has said that President Muhammadu Buhari has just celebrated his last Democracy Day as president.
In a statement issued by Ike Abonyi, his Special Adviser on media in Abuja on Tuesday, Secondus said for democracy to survive in Nigeria, the All Progressives Congress must be done away with.
In the statement to mark Democracy Day, the PDP National Chairman, Nigerians are anxiously looking forward to the opportunity to dispense with the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and the President.
“If Democracy must survive in our country we must do away with APC and Nigerians are ready and willing to do just that because they cherish democracy as the best form of government.
“Going by their poor record of performance in the last 36 months, and the determination of Nigerians to put the country in the right footing, this is the last Democracy Day this President will mark.
“Their agenda now is to intimidate, harass and scare opponents to create a Police state with the aim of turning the country into one-party state but it must be resisted by Nigerians who passed similar road before and came out victorious.
‘’The next Democracy Day May 29, 2019, which Nigerians and indeed all lovers of democracy are anxiously looking forward to would be the smooth transition from confusion and purposeless governance to real democracy which the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is returning to gift to the Nation.”
Prince Secondus said that the democracy PDP established and nurtured for 16 years has been bastardized and grossly undermined by the intolerant and drifting APC administration in the last three years.
He, therefore, called on the international community to show more than passing interest in the events leading to Nigeria’s general election in 2019 “as the APC rigging strategy has already started through intimidation and harassment of political opponents across the country.”
