The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has urged Prince Charles to warn President Muhammadu Buhari and his party, the APC, against rigging 2019 general elections.
PDP said the British prince should urge Buhari to accept his imminent defeat in the 2019 Presidential election.
In a statement by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, the opposition party informed the British prince that the Buhari administration had reversed all the political and social gains made by Nigeria since independence.
The statement read, “The British leader to counsel President Buhari not to attempt to rig the 2019 Presidential election but be ready to accept his imminent defeat in the polls, since it is clear that Nigerians have rejected him because of his incompetence and his administration’s apparent disdain for their safety and wellbeing.
“The British leader is invited to note that the Buhari administration has reversed all the political and social gains made by Nigeria since independence while pushing the nation to the brinks with its anti-democratic tendencies and desperation to hang on to power beyond May 29, 2019.
“The Buhari administration has completely eroded the values of freedom of association, personal liberty, free speech, national cohesion, free enterprise, political tolerance and our stencils for economic growth. Instead, it has plunged our nation into avoidable security challenges and the worst economic recession, with attendant daily bloodletting, acute hunger and starvation, escalated joblessness, high mortality rate and unprecedented stress on families.
“Under the Buhari failed administration, our nation, once known for her robust economy and a happy citizenry, has become the home to world poorest persons; where opposition is an endangered specie and where citizens daily fall victims of arbitrary killing and mass burials, extra-judicial executions, illegal arrests and detention, extreme torture and reported disappearances, as captured in the reports by various world bodies.
“We therefore call on Britain to take a decisive steps to caution this administration and assist in rescuing our nation and returning it to the path of good governance and national stability, which has eluded her in the last three and half years.”
