Stop impunity, PDP tells Buhari

The national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP Tuesday said that the All Progressives Congress, APC led government has come clearly with what it termed, police state policy. Speaking Tuesday at the PDP National Secretariat when he received briefing from the Taraba state Governor, Ishaku Darius on the recent election tribunal verdict that nullified his status as governor of the state, PDP Acting National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus said that for the love for peace, the PDP failed to challenge the 2015 Presidential election.
Secondus who cautioned President Muhammadu Buhari against what he described as ‘brazen impunity’ specially designed to punish members of PDP by the All Progressives Congress (APC) led government agencies, warned that enough is enough of that, adding that the President requires peace in the country to govern well. The PDP acting National Chairman who warned that the party will no longer accept the situation where the APC led Federal Government ‎connive with security agencies to rob PDP some of its states at the tribunals, stressed for the Taraba primary election, the PDP followed every stage of the Electoral Act and the PDP guideline in the submission of the governor and his deputy to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), adding that the electoral body never rejected them. Prince Secondus who expressed shocked at the ground of the nullification of the election, vowed that the law would take its course, just as he accused the APC led Federal Government of using security agencies to write tribunal judgments.
Secondus who alleged that there was a grand design by the APC to take Taraba, Rivers nd Bayelsa states led PDP states governments by all means there-by planting seed of discord amongst the people, however urged President Muhammadu Buhari to note that without peace, he cannot govern the country well and for that reason “we did not go to the tribunal to challenge the presidential election.” According to him, crises looms in these states where the APC plans to take away the wishes of the people and also in the south East, adding that the party was solidly behind the Taraba state governor to exercise all legal avenues at his disposal to challenge the election tribunal judgement against him. Secondus said, “There is a grand plan to takeover PDP states. The tribunal judgement is a conspiracy. We believe in the judiciary, we believe that justice will done, we believe that nobody will coarse the judiciary. “The president should know there will be no development without peace. The president needs peace to drive his change. There is tension everywhere. The government should engage South East where people are protesting, in a discussion but not to coarse or arrest ‎them.
