The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)
says with President Muhammadu
Buhari at the helm of affairs, there
is no sign of government in the
country.
Uche Secondus, the national
chairman of the opposition party
made the claim on Friday in Abuja
while addressing newsmen.
Mr Secondus wondered if truly the
spike in criminal activities and
killings across the country could
happen where a government exist.
Zamfara and Kaduna States are top
places where crimes of various
kinds have risen in recent times.
“The security situation has been
such that prominent Nigerian
clerics have been raising serious
concern on the issue of leadership,
even questioning whether we
really have a Commander-in-Chief
in this country,” Secondus said.
“While the Presidency continues to
argue that there exists government
in our country today, what obtains
in reality is different.
“The level of bloodletting
occasioned by the barrage of
criminalities across the country can
only be happening in a country
without government. Things got
even worse as the remaining
goodwill of the people on this
government vanished after it arm-
twisted the Independent National
Electoral Commission (INEC), into
tampering with the will of the
people in the February 23
Presidential and National Assembly
elections.
“There is no evidence of the
presence of government in this
country as crimes of all kinds are
committed all over the country and
Nigerians have never lived in such
great fear and trembling for their
lives.
From Kaduna to Zamfara, Benue to
Taraba, Plateau, Lagos to Enugu
etc., bloodletting is continuing
unabated, even the President’s
home state of Katsina has lost
about eight local government areas
to bandits, not to talk of the North
East,” he said.
The opposition also alleged that
the All Progressive Congress-led
administration was out to
undermine the Judicial arm of
government. It also advised judicial
officers not to succumb to the
intimidations of the executive arm.
“After its several attempts to hijack
the legislature failed, it turned to
the Judiciary ridiculing the revered
third arm of the government to the
point of removing their confidence.
“The executive backed humiliation
of the head of the Judiciary, the
Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice
Walter Onnoghen is a well-
designed strategy by the APC
administration to intimidate and
coerce judicial officers particularly
the Judges and Justices to fall in
line and endorse all their
undemocratic behaviours that is
bound to come to the judiciary for
adjudication,” the party said.
Mr Onnoghen, although recently
resigned, was suspended few
weeks to the 2019 general election
over allegations of non-declaration
of assets traced to him.
Critics of the government said it
was another plot by Buhari to
subdue the will of the people
through the third arm of
government.
