Nigeria Is Sliding Under APC, PDP Alleges

The Peoples Democratic Party on Thursday claimed that Nigeria is gradually sliding into what it called 'totalitarianism' and anarchy under the watch of the All Progressives Congress administration.

The party also lamented what it termed the desperation of the APC is to foist a one-party state on Nigerians.

This was revealed in a statement shared on the X handle of the party and signed by the party's National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba, claiming on Wednesday that there is an attempt by the ruling party  to emasculate the Institutions of democracy in Nigeria.

The statement read, "The PDP alerts of attempts and actions of a cabal within the Presidency to emasculate the institutions of democracy in Nigeria, especially the Independent National Electoral Commissione and the judiciary in the desperation to foist a one-party state on Nigerians.

"This unfolding anti-democratic scenario is not only evident in the manipulation of elections but also in the conflicting judgments by electoral courts, especially some Election Appeal Court Panels which judgments are in conflict with the express provisions of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended), the Electoral Act, 2022, INEC’s Guidelines and Regulations for elections. 

"Democracy must be allowed to thrive as the government of the people as expressed by their will at elections.

"It is therefore imperative to draw the attention of Nigerians and the whole world to the undermining and crippling of democracy and the danger our nation is facing at this moment.

"The PDP calls on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as the custodian of the government to come clean by speaking out and denouncing any attempt or action that is capable of stifling democracy, the rule of law and muzzling of the independence of the judiciary which is suggestive of a fait accompli on election matters pending before the courts."
