Nigeria Sliding Into Dictatorship, PDP Raises Alarm by DONSMITH123(m): 7:23am On Nov 13, 2015
Seeks international community’s help
Says APC has failed to implement campaign promises

By Henry Umoru

ABUJA — The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, yesterday drew the attention of the international community to what it described as increasingly fascist inclination of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.

The party’s assertion in a communiqué issued at the end of a Special National Conference in Abuja, yesterday, came as senior PDP chieftains mocked the ruling APC administration for not being able to implement one of its campaign promises.

They also accused a serving APC governor and party chieftain of colluding to milk the treasury of N25 billion through implementation of the Treasury Single Account, TSA.

PDP officials, led by the Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu; acting national chairman, Prince Uche Secondus; PDP governors, led by Dr. Segun Mimiko; senators, led by Senator Godswill Akpabio; House of Representatives minority leader, Leo Ogor, all took turns to deride the APC administration, enumerating campaign promises they said the administration had failed to implement.

They also alleged a gradual emergence of dictatorship characterised by impunity, victimisation of opposition elements and the emasculation of the judiciary.

The event was the one-day national conference organised by the PDP, yesterday, in Abuja with the theme, “PDP and the Sustenance of Democratic Ideals in Nigeria,’, where the party also set March 2016 as its national convention to change its national officers.

Speaking earlier, Secondus noted that the APC had failed, saying the party had yet to implement a single of all its election promises.

Secondus also urged the Senate to carry out a proper investigation into the alleged payment of N25 billion as commission to a company on account of the implementation of the TSA.

Senator Ekweremadu, the highest elected official in the Federal Government, while applauding the unity of the Senate as an institution in supporting the Federal Government, irrespective of partisan hues, however, said he was at the conference as a proud member of the PDP.

Ekweremadu enumerated some of the campaign promises of the APC, adding that none of them had been actualised.

The Deputy President of the Senate also enjoined the media and Civil Society Organizations to partner the PDP to hold the APC accountable and preserve democratic ideals.

Also speaking, PDP BoT Acting Chairman, Bello Mohammed, who disagreed with those apologetic of the party’s 16 years in leadership, said there was no reason for PDP to apologise to Nigerians because the party had been vindicated, having laid the foundation, adding that the APC had failed in its promises to Nigerians.

Also in his remarks, Governor Mimiko of Ondo State who spoke for present and former PDP governors, urged President Buhari to be fair to all Nigerians, irrespective of party affiliation by conducting free and fair elections in Bayelsa and Kogi states as well as release the bailout funds for Kogi State.

Dictatorship? Dictatorship is when 16 is greater than 19. Dictatorship is when police invaded Rivers State government house to stop a sitting Governor gaining entrance. Dictatorship is when 6 members wanted to impeach a Governor. Dictatorship is when SSS invaded and ransacked APC computer data base office in Lagos. Dictatorship is when all key APC members were arrested and detained prior to governorship elections in Edo, Anambra, Ekiti, Osun etc. Dictatorship is when Niger Delta Militants were awarded with contracts to supply military Hard Wares without the knowledge of Defense Ministry. Dictatorship is when Adamawa State had 4 Governors in 4 consecutive months due to impunity. Dictatorship is when DSS blocked Tinibu's house for 5 days. Dictatorship is when police sealed National Assembly complex to stop speaker and his men from sitting. Dictatorship is when judiciary was fully compromised where PDP as high bidders given upper hand in every verdict. Dictatorship is when Borno Airport was closed to stop Governor from flying but allows Ali Modu Sheriff to fly freely. Dictatorship is when Sanusi Lamido was sacked because he exposed criminals. Dictatorship is when Governors private jets were impounded deliberately as perceived enemies of presidency etc......... Jonathan and PDP are not even ashamed of themselves by calling some people Dictators? What a senile people!

Ofcourse, PDP is on point.

God forbid, if the present administration succeed to silent the voice of opposition, then we would have been doomed.

I SEE NO CHANGES.

We have just been short-changed!
