PDP condemns demolition of Maiduguri office, accuses APC of desperation, impunity


Peoples Democratic Party National Chairman, Secondus

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday alleged plot by the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led government to physically attack its members and offices.

Spokesman of the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, told journalists in Abuja that because APC had realized that its chances of winning the 2019 elections was getting slimmer by the day, the party resorted to arrest, detention and harrassment of opposition.

PDP said APC was also planning to move against perceived opponents of government, including innocent business concerns, all in line with the grand plot to discredit and stifle opposition in Nigeria.


“As we address you today, the APC, in the desperation to cling to power, has finally commenced its onslaught against our democratic order. The constitutionally guaranteed rights to freely associate is now under attack even as our nation is being pushed to the brinks,” Ologbondiyan stated.

On the demolition of its office in Maiduguri, the PDP said: “On Sunday January 21, 2018, the APC unleashed terror on the PDP by sending its agents to demolish the PDP secretariat along Dandal Way in Maiduguri, the state capital.

“This horrendous, beastly and hateful act of desperation is a direct assault on our nation’s democracy, a gross effrontery against the provisions of the 1999 Constitution as amended. It further exposes the intensity of the fear and trepidation in the APC over the reawakened popularity of the PDP ahead of the 2019 elections.
