Ekiti 2018: PDP Chairman Leads Protesters To NASS Over ‘Attack’ On Fayose
National chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus, is not taking lightly, the event of Wednesday, July 11th in Ekiti state.
Governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose, broke down in tears during a rally of the PDP on Wednesday in the state, accusing a police officer of brutally manhandling and attacking him with teargas.
Secondus, who was accompanied by some top PDP officials, said he led the delegation to submit a petition to the lawmakers on the alleged action of the police.
“Just yesterday there was a civilian coup. The Ekiti government house was seized and the governor was brutalised, detained and harmed.
“Ekiti has been militarised and policed. Over 30,000 police men are in Ekiti. The citizens of Ekiti are afraid. They are traumatized. They are harassed and they are being guided not to come out of their homes.
“We call on international community to see and watch what is happening in Ekiti, if this is the type of democracy and election they tend to conduct by the APC and INEC that means the 2019 election is under threat and we believe that if they continue in this manner and if they rig the election in Ekiti, there won’t be an election in 2019.''
Received by Ike Ekweremadu, deputy senate president, at the entrance of the national assembly, Secondus called on the leadership of the national assembly to intervene in the situation in Ekiti.
“Your Excellency we have come so you can intervene – your oversight function of the national assembly – you have a right, the mandate is with you by the constitution to query and examine and carry out your oversight function of the executive.”
With Secondus threatening that if the election is rigged in Ekiti, there would not be any election in 2019, one wonders how bad politics has turned in Nigeria.
