The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Uche Secondus, has predicted that President Muhammadu Buhari has celebrated his last Democracy Day as president.
This was made public in a statement issued by Ike Abonyi, his Special Adviser on media in Abuja on Tuesday in commemoration of this year’s Democracy Day.
According to Mr Secondus, the country cannot afford him further “if our democracy and nation are to survive.”
Mr Secondus prayed that Nigerians should never again give power to a non-democrat who he said could put the country in jeopardy.
He, therefore, said that Nigerians are anxiously looking forward to the opportunity to dispense with the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, and the President.
“Such horrible situation where a day they should be celebrating freedom and good governance, they are instead burying their innocent ones and groaning in the avoidable hardship,” he regretted.
He charged Nigerians to take their destiny in their hands “and swear never to pass the APC route again by collecting and properly using their PVCs to save democracy and indeed save Nigeria.”
Mr Secondus added: “If Democracy must survive in our country we must do away with APC and Nigerians are ready and willing to do just that because they cherish democracy as the best form of government.
“Going by their poor record of performance in the last 36 months, and the determination of Nigerians to put the country in the right footing, this is the last Democracy Day this President will mark.
“Their agenda now is to intimidate, harass and scare opponents to create a Police state with the aim of turning the country into one-party state but it must be resisted by Nigerians who passed similar road before and came out victorious.
‘’The next Democracy Day May 29, 2019, which Nigerians and indeed all lovers of democracy are anxiously looking forward to would be the smooth transition from confusion and purposeless governance to real democracy which the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is returning to gift to the Nation.”
