Nigeria main opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party. PDP has accused the All Progressives Congress, APC and Presidency of allegedly pursuing policies aimed at destroying Nigeria’s democracy and imposing what the PDP describes as dictatorship in the country.
This accusation was contained in a statement issued on Sunday by the party National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh.
PDP in the statement asked the Federal Government to come to terms with the fact that democracy requires accountability, adherence to the rule of law and constitutional order and not the crass infractions, executive arrogance, intolerance and undermining the legislature.
“Has the President Muhammadu Buhari led government not exhibited all the trapping of despotism, including ruling without the constitutional components of a cabinet, persistent abuse of power, corrupting of democratic institutions, quest to appropriate the National Assembly in spite of the principle of separation of powers, invasion of state government and personal houses, injecting confusion into the judiciary and hounding of individuals perceived to be against its interest?”, the party asked.
Metuh restated the party’s commitment in providing issue-based opposition as well as support for the fight against corruption.
