Why PDP Thinks Buhari's Vacation Is An Alibi
President Muhammadu Buhari is in the United Kingdom for a 10-day working holiday, but the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) feels different about that visit.
Members of the opposition party think the vacation is an alibi for the President and they allege that they know something that Nigerians do not know.
President Buhari arrived in London on Friday, August 3rd and the PDP says the “two-week vacation in London was designed as an alibi to exonerate him from planned political illegalities, forceful invasion and mayhem about to be visited on the polity and particularly, the National Assembly”.
The party claimed that it was aware of plots already perfected in a meeting, on Wednesday night, between President Buhari and some compromised senators of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who the party claimed were now in the minority, to forcefully reconvene the Senate.
It says the lawmakers planned to get protection from security agencies, while they try to impeach the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki.
Dr. Saraki had few days ago defected to the Peoples Democratic Party from the APC with some other members of the Senate.
“We know that the desperation to illegally take control of the National Assembly is part of the design to undermine our democratic institutions and completely foist a dictatorial regime on our nation,” the PDP added in a post on its Twitter page.
