|Rise Up Against Buhari, APC, PDP Tells Its Members by unuane1(m): 9:26pm On Oct 25, 2015|
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP,
has raised a rallying cry to all its
members, supporters and lovers of
democracy across the country to rise
up and use all lawful means to resist
what they call, anti-democratic forces,
now using the judiciary and security
agencies in their desperate scheme to
subvert the will of the people and
destroy the nation’s democracy.
The party said though it seeks peace, it
is not ready to accept the peace of a
graveyard, neither is it willing to
surrender the mandate freely given to it
by the people in any part of the country,
particularly in Rivers, Akwa-Ibom, Delta,
Abia, Taraba and other states where it
won in the last general elections.
“Let it be known, and clearly too, that no
matter the strong-arming, threats and
manipulations by the APC government,
the PDP is not willing to, and will never
surrender the mandate freely given to
us by the people in states where we
won in the last general elections, neither
are the people of those states willing to
allow sectional invaders to exert
influence on those to be in charge of
their affairs,” the party said in a
statement signed by its National
Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, on
The PDP said the ‘desperation’ so far
exhibited by the President Muhammadu
Buhari-led APC government in
‘manipulating’ sensitive agencies of
state like the judiciary and the security
to further its bid to take over the rich
states of Rivers, Akwa-Ibom and Delta
is totally against the spirit of democracy
and peace bestowed by the PDP in
conceding defeat at the Presidential
election, but instead, an affront to the
people and recipe for crisis in the polity.
The party maintained that the rulings by
the Rivers and Akwa-Ibom states
governorship elections tribunals, despite
inherent contradictions, were a direct
fallout of interferences from the APC
and some elements within the office of
the President of the Court of Appeal,
adding that they should be held
responsible should there be any break
down of law and order in the system.
It also strongly cautioned against any
interference in the Rivers and Akwa-
Ibom cases at the appeal level as well
as any further intrusion in the Abia,
Taraba and Delta governorship election
tribunals, which the APC is already
boasting of controlling. The PDP said
such would be a clear invitation to
chaos in the land.
“In the last five months, after conceding
defeat at the Presidential elections and
other polls where we lost, Nigerians are
witnesses to the fact that the PDP has
remained calm and steadfast to its
commitment to providing mature,
decent and civil opposition with more
interest on the peace, unity and
corporate interest of our dear nation.
“However, the ruling party and the APC
Federal Government in their dictatorial
inclinations are much more interested
in playing crude, selfish and sectional
politics and trying to use manipulation
of judicial processes to forcefully take
over states where we genuinely won in
“Nigerians have noted APC’s definition
of credible elections wherein
governorship elections in Imo, Ogun,
Plateau, Lagos and Yobe are all credible
while those of Rivers, Akwa-Ibom,
Delta, Taraba and Abia are rigged and
must by all means be annulled.
“In the light of the foregoing therefore,
leaders of the PDP across the country
are now converging on a consensus not
to surrender our national destiny and
fate to the whims and caprices of the
sectional interests of the Daura and
“We want all to know that this party is
able, willing and now ready to call up
our members and supporters to use all
means within the limits provided by the
laws of the land to resist this evil plan
to decimate the PDP and opposition.
The peace we seek is not that of a
graveyard, it is such as guaranteed by a
well-recognized democratic system that
treats all as equals before the law,
irrespective of partisan and political
“We hereby raise a rallying cry to all our
members and supporters of PDP
nationwide, all patriotic citizens and all
lovers of democracy to join the PDP in
this fight to save our nation from the
hands of the lying, deceitful and false
prophets, who are bent on parading
themselves as cruel conquerors of our
“Furthermore, we request the
international community to note that
never in the history of our democracy
has the nation witnessed such a
divisive and anti-people government,
whose actions have so polarized the
polity, and undermined national unity
and cohesion, a development that spells
doom for our democracy, if not
“We are therefore duty bound to
counsel President Muhammadu Buhari
to be cautious of tendencies that
provide avenues for the destruction of
the nation’s democracy, which he is a
huge beneficiary of.
“In the same vein, we call on the Chief
Justice of Nigeria, Justice Mahmud
Mohammed to note the looming danger
and save the nation’s democracy and
the institution of the judiciary by
immediately checking negative actions
emanating from elements operating
within the office of the President of the
Court of Appeal.
“Finally, it has become necessary to
remind all that this democracy was built
on the principle of the rule of law and no
political party, individual or group must
be allowed to, by any means,
appropriate or attempt to appropriate
the will of the people at any time and
under any guise.

Dannyset:How does it pay the masses? I pity Nigeria. She's going beyond redeem without knowing. Never in the history of Nigeria have I seen such an uninformed, foolhardy, desperate, crude, divisive and insensitive government whose preoccupation is intimidation and enthronement of one-party system in Nigeria.

I use to tell people Buhari is a Disaster.

PDP needs to be replaced as the opposition party, they do not have the intellect for opposition. A party tried to rig presidential election and still lost; brazenly and violently rigged state gubernatorial elections and won temporary victory that has now been overturned, and has the audacity to attempt to make their loss about anything other than a correction of brazen impunity. Nigeria is so messed up that is why such public nuisance is being tolerated, if not what we really should be discussing here is pressing of criminal charges for electoral malpractice. Shameless and useless party that runied the country and wasted opportunities for 16 good years. 16!!
The real shame is that more of them are not in jail!
|Re: Rise Up Against Buhari, APC, PDP Tells Its Members by SkyBlue1: 10:05pm On Oct 25, 2015|
You must be high on crack. The part in bold aptly describes the last PDP government of Jonathan and the ones before it. Which party coined the phrase "do or die" in regards to election? Keep on with your deranged selective amnesia.
|Re: Rise Up Against Buhari, APC, PDP Tells Its Members by Dannyset(m): 10:12pm On Oct 25, 2015|
Episteme2:I will forgive you if you can prove to me that ur just coming to Nigeria.
What happened in Ekiti(the use of military) was nothing to ur reasoning. Or you don't know it was GEJ's plot? Did you see what happened to Sanusi when he was about to be crowned Emir? Where he was intimidated by Police and the govt house locked so as to prevent him from becoming the Emir. Oh! you were dozing when Tambuwal was openly teargassed and the then IG refused to identify him as the Speaker, all because GEJ don't want him?
See, you guys are modern hypocrites, and you must live with this intimidation for some times. So that you can know that nobody has the monopoly of power and position.
|Re: Rise Up Against Buhari, APC, PDP Tells Its Members by SkyBlue1: 10:33pm On Oct 25, 2015|
They just think everyone is as delluded or drunk on selective amnesia as they are, they really are a silly bunch that no one really takes seriously. Imagine PDP calling Buhari's 5 month old government divisive? Which government has been more divisive than Jonathan's in this current republic, or been more corrupt or exercised mnore impunity?
|Re: Rise Up Against Buhari, APC, PDP Tells Its Members by Dannyset(m): 10:40pm On Oct 25, 2015|
SkyBlue1:Let them also drink from this cup and feel the gnashing of teeth.
|Re: Rise Up Against Buhari, APC, PDP Tells Its Members by Episteme2(m): 10:43pm On Oct 25, 2015|
Dannyset:So, as someone that means well for Nigeria, you want those democratic anomalies to continue. Why then did Nigerians vote for change? Did they vote for change so that the alleged impunities of the previous administration could continue or that we may get most things right and do better?
|Re: Rise Up Against Buhari, APC, PDP Tells Its Members by Dannyset(m): 10:52pm On Oct 25, 2015|
Episteme2:I think with this you've got no point. Those who didn't believe and who eventually didn't vote for the Change should ask for it.
My point! Let PDP feel what they've been dishing to others.
|Re: Rise Up Against Buhari, APC, PDP Tells Its Members by Episteme2(m): 11:50pm On Oct 25, 2015|
Dannyset:Sorry, I know you've got points but I wanna tell you that progressive minds are not vindictive. We can only get better not retrograde.
|Re: Rise Up Against Buhari, APC, PDP Tells Its Members by LastSurvivor: 11:54pm On Oct 25, 2015|
buhari is simply not the change we envisioned.. he is towing the same path PDP toed for years but more dangerously this time..
He seems to be more evil than what AIT aired during the campaign
|Re: Rise Up Against Buhari, APC, PDP Tells Its Members by McKren(m): 12:32am On Oct 26, 2015|
PDP and Nwike must do everything to defend River State
However Amaechi and Buhari want it lets give it to them.
We can not lie down and accept the intimidation. If they want to spill blood just to capture River State then let's show them they will still fail.
Let Rivers and Akwa Ibom be the grounds where the fight backs begin!
No to Buhari dictatorship and his lapdog Amaechi!
|Re: Rise Up Against Buhari, APC, PDP Tells Its Members by McKren(m): 12:36am On Oct 26, 2015|
When did it become the responsibility of the ruling party to pick and choose who the opposition can be?
The kind of dangerous dictatorship you guys are imposing on Nigeria is frightening!
Remember this! If Jonathan wanted to be in power at all cost there is nothing APC would have done about it. PDP worked hard to modify itself and the system to a society where votes count and mean something.
APC wants to retrogress this country by 20years just because they want to consolidate power at all cost!
|Re: Rise Up Against Buhari, APC, PDP Tells Its Members by SkyBlue1: 12:36am On Oct 26, 2015|
Why don't you just hope and work towards a free and fair election so the people can choose for themselves instead of you or individuals thinking they speak for everyone? And you don't see the irony in calling Buhari a dictator with that attitude of yours? I don't know where you people get all this thuggish mentality from.
|Re: Rise Up Against Buhari, APC, PDP Tells Its Members by McKren(m): 12:42am On Oct 26, 2015|
There has already been a free and fair election and you lost!
The basis for which the Rivers election was cancelled which is malfunctioning card reader was a nationwide issue which also affected Presidential election.
Why don't we have a re-run of the Presidential election too?
|Re: Rise Up Against Buhari, APC, PDP Tells Its Members by McKren(m): 12:45am On Oct 26, 2015|
APC is dragging Nigeria backward by 20years
Before some of you wake up it will be too late!
This is not about PDP. It's about the future of Nigeria!
|Re: Rise Up Against Buhari, APC, PDP Tells Its Members by fyneguy: 1:01am On Oct 26, 2015|
Did you criticize the obvious cases of impunity when PDP was in power? if so, post the thread here. Hypocrite alert
|Re: Rise Up Against Buhari, APC, PDP Tells Its Members by SkyBlue1: 1:06am On Oct 26, 2015|
I did not say APC should choose the opposition I was calling on Nigerians to do that, so please spare us the false outrage.
|Re: Rise Up Against Buhari, APC, PDP Tells Its Members by SkyBlue1: 1:07am On Oct 26, 2015|
The fact that you think Rivers elecltion was free and fair says it all.
|Re: Rise Up Against Buhari, APC, PDP Tells Its Members by McKren(m): 1:09am On Oct 26, 2015|
I did not realise PDP was a party of immigrants?
|Re: Rise Up Against Buhari, APC, PDP Tells Its Members by McKren(m): 1:11am On Oct 26, 2015|
No election in Nigeria is free and fair. Even Buhari's victory is flawed but I guess that's a debate for another day!
But the outcome of the Rivers election represents the will of majority of Rivers people!
|Re: Rise Up Against Buhari, APC, PDP Tells Its Members by Omololu007(m): 1:11am On Oct 26, 2015|
McKren:see this ibo boy,start your fight in imo state
|Re: Rise Up Against Buhari, APC, PDP Tells Its Members by SkyBlue1: 1:25am On Oct 26, 2015|
And you know this because? With low turnout due to violence and intimidation that was roundly condemned by international observers, industrial scale rigging that gave him statistically impossible results for the number of people accredited and with low turnout, somehow, you know this. Or wait, your friends and everyone you know was planning on voting for Wike, and you know majority of the people in Rivers State right? What a joker you are. Go bore someone else with your jokes. This is how you people thought Nigerians wanted Jonathan.
|Re: Rise Up Against Buhari, APC, PDP Tells Its Members by M4gunners: 2:04am On Oct 26, 2015|
Nigeria is heading to one party system. We should all stand up against this for the benefit of all.
|Re: Rise Up Against Buhari, APC, PDP Tells Its Members by Opinedecandid(m): 3:14am On Oct 26, 2015|
I dare to add, if we must continue together as a united Nigeria, then
NIGERIANS MUST RISE UP FOR NIGERIA.
But if we must not,
It is not just a PDP thing. It should be a clarion call for all Nigerians at home and in the diaspora.
Because this administration will not just kill our hard earned democracy, it will plough us back into wicked dictatorship, with the way it's going..
