PDP National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus has commended Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo over Tuesday sacking of the Director General, Department of State Security (DSS), Lawal Daura.
Secondus saluted what he called the courage shown by the Acting President in the sacking of Daura and condemned DSS presence at the National Assembly entrance gate in the early hours of Tuesday.
A statement signed by his media aide, Ike Abonyi quoted the party boss as requesting the British government not to provide shelter for forces working against democracy in Nigeria.
He alleged that the final plan for the invasion of National Assembly was made when the minority leader Senator Godswill Akpabio visited the President in London at the weekend.
According to Secondus the siege on the National Assembly left no one in doubt that President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC are out to destroy the nation’s hard-earned democracy all because they could no longer fit into it.
“When an executive arm in a democratic setting muscles up other arms of government, the correct name for such administration is autocracy and dictatorship.”
“Nigerians and international community have continuously watched this administration harass and intimidate the legislature and judiciary as well as others in opposition in their bid to create a dictatorial regime.”
“All over the World, the parliament is the bastion of democracy and rule of law; anybody not willing to align himself to them is trying to create anarchy in the land,” the statement read in part.
He further called on President Buhari to resign “and pave way for the sustenance of democracy since it is now obvious that he has lost legitimacy to continue as an elected President.”
