The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has said that it has been vindicated with the resolutions of the National Assembly at its joint session against President Muhammadu Buhari’s and the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris.
In a statement signed by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan said the National Assembly stance on President Buhari has corroborated Nigerians’ insistence on why rule of law should be followed in the present dispensation.
The party recalled how Presidency has consistently been deceiving Nigerians despite escalation of violence, killings and daily bloodlettings in the country.
Read the detailed statement below:
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says the resolutions of the joint session of the National Assembly against President Muhammadu Buhari’s Presidency is a vindication of its stance on the Buhari administration.
The PDP commends the members of the National Assembly for their patriotism and courage in unanimously standing up for democracy, rule of law, national stability and cohesion at this trying time.
Nigerians would recall that the PDP had consistently pointed to the misrule of the Buhari presidency, as well as the unrelenting violations of our constitution, unprecedented executive highhandedness, abuse of the rights of citizens and the erosion of all known democratic norms under this administration.
These are in addition to the foisting of siege mentality on Nigerians as well as presidential aloofness to important issues of state thereby resulting in the escalation violence, killings and daily bloodlettings in our country.
From the above, it has become evident that Mr. President must be called to order through an appropriate legislative instrument. The PDP therefore calls on all democrats, across board, irrespective of party affiliations, to come together, support the National Assembly and save our democracy from the misrule of the Buhari presidency.
