PDP accuses govt of covering up incompetence by intimidating opposition

Ayo-FayoseEkiti Chapter commends Fayose over criticism of Buhari
THE Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday said that it would not succumb to what it called “the heinous and draconian agenda of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC) government just as it announced that “it is coming up stronger because Nigerians now know better.”
The party said that APC having realized that it lacked what it takes to deliver its numerous bogus campaign promises to Nigerians has ignobly resorted to intimidation and harassment of the opposition through its set-out witch-hunt policy.
National Secretary of PDP, Prof. Adewale Oladipo said in a statement Sunday night that in a desperate mood to cover up its obvious lapses and the clear lack of governance direction in the last eight months, the APC administration had plunged all its energy seeking imaginary PDP faults.
Oladipo’s statement stated, “In all democracies, viable opposition is recommended for stability and growth of society, but the APC in is seeking to decimate opposition so foist its dictatorial agenda of installing one party state without economic direction and where the rights of the citizens are trampled under-foot.
Meanwhile, the PDP in Ekiti State has commended Governor Ayodele Fayose for his brave analysis of the way Nigeria is being run by President Muhammadu Buhari.
The party, in a statement by the State Publicity Secretary, Jackson Adebayo said that if Fayose has not been talking, the President’s dictatorial tendencies would have launched Nigeria on the road to fascism and the consequences would have been fatal.
According to Adebayo, “It is a great sacrifice that the Governor of Ekiti State is making in this regards, and other PDP governors should join hand to check President Buhari’s penchant for disobedience of court orders and abuse of power before Nigeria’s democracy hits the rocks.”
Oladipo continued, “Nigerians have seen through the campaign deceptions and the now unfolding agenda of the APC and are now apprehensive about the health of the country as the reality of the type of party and leaders they voted into power gradually dawns on them.”
“They have watched carefully as all essential values of a viable democracy are being destroyed; the other arms of government, the judiciary and legislature have been caged under with each now struggling to survive.”
“We are all witnesses of the brazen abuse of human rights of citizens, arrest and detention without trial, disregard for court orders and the impunity being displayed by various security agencies in the last eight months.
“Also obvious to Nigerians now is the use of the fight against corruption as means of settling scores with perceived enemies as is the case with key PDP leaders including its Spokesman, an action that is ostensibly aimed at silencing the opposition from looking in and exposing the incompetence, and the double standard of the administration.
