The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has stated that a cabal in the Presidency was planning to overthrow the democratic rights of Nigerians to favour the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The national Chairman of the party, Umar Damagum, revealed this during a media briefing at the party’s national secretariat on Thursday in Abuja.
Damagum alleges that, “There is an ongoing design by APC to cripple Nigeria democracy, overthrow the democratic rights of Nigerians, suppress the rule of law, and downgrade the nation to a fiefdom run by the whims of a cabal.”
Damagum added that, “It has become pertinent to alert Nigerians that the country is fast sliding into totalitarianism following the activities of a cabal in the Presidency, which is out to emasculate institutions of democracy, especially the judiciary, in the desperation to subvert and overturn the expressed will of Nigerians in the various election matters across the country.”
This is coming after the PDP Spokesman, Debo Ologunagba, accused the cabal in the Presidency of trying to slide Nigeria into anarchy and totalitarianism.
Ologunagba claimed that the cabal in the Presidency was trying to use the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the judiciary to throw Nigeria into anarchy.
