President now full-blown dictator, lawbreaker, says PDP
•Bayelsans should support Atiku, Jonathan urges
National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP,) Uche Secondus, says President Muhammadu Buhari has become a full-blown dictator and a law-breaker. Secondus, who spoke yesterday in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital, expressed concern that Buhari has continued to violate the nation’s Constitution, and urged the people to reject him at the poll.
He likened Buhari to the proverbial Chameleon that lacked the capacity to change, saying he had come out to be a dictator, despite that he was elected president as a civilian.The PDP chairman accused Buhari of willfully removing the Chief Justice of the Federation, Justice Walter Onnoghen, the head of another arm of government, without recourse to the stipulations of the constitution.
He said the party would continue to condemn the brazen violation of the constitution, in contradiction to the position of the All Progressives Congress (APC) that nobody should talk about it. Secondus, who urged the electorate to wrest the country from the grip of dictatorship, stressed that Nigeria was at a crossroads today, because Buhari was violating the Constitution.He said: “Atiku is an achiever who has attracted a lot of awards. We are here to talk to you that Nigeria is at a crossroad.
“Buhari is against the constitution of the country. Everyday, he breaks the laws of the land, divides the country, with more people becoming hungry, even as he is killing the innocent.”Secondus accused the Buhari administration of corruption, adding that even the Transparency International had said earlier that the government was corrupt.
Speaking also, the PDP Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar said the election was about the future of the youth, and indeed the country. Atiku stressed that the APC has failed Nigerians in all the three purported tripods on which the Buhari administration was rested.
Buhari failed in the promise to repair the economy, fight corruption, and insecurity in the land, he said.In his remarks, the Governor of Bayelsa State, Seriake Dickson, urged the people to vote for Atiku, who he described as a Nigerian with the desired understanding to restructure the country, in consonance with the will of Nigerians.
Also, former President Goodluck Jonathan, urged all Bayelsans to work for the actualisation of Atiku’s emergence as President, as he has remained a friend of the Ijaw nation.
