BREAKING: Sad Day In Abuja As President Muhammadu Buhari Is Declared Totally Unfit To Read Tomorrow’s Democracy Day Speech

BREAKING: Sad Day In Abuja As President Muhammadu Buhari Is Declared Totally Unfit To Read Tomorrow’s Democracy Day Speech

The opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has advised President Muhammadu Buhari not to bother to read or address Nigerians on this year’s Democracy Day as such addresses would contain deceits, falsifications and unfulfilled promises.

PDP, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, observed that Nigerians are increasingly becoming frustrated and despondent by the magnitude of lies and deception by the All Progressives Congress-led Federal Government in the last three years.
“Indeed, this administration should not come close to the emblem of democracy, as such would be an unpardonable spat on the faces of millions of suppressed Nigerians and the graves of victims of extra-judicial executions under this administration, as catalogued by international bodies, including Transparency International, TI, Amnesty International, AI, and even the United States Department of State, DSS,” the party said.
It noted that instead of celebrating democracy, Nigerians are today groaning in regret for electing an administration that has completely turned against them.
The party accused the APC-led Federal Government of a clampdown on its critics, setting aside constitutional provisions and desecrating democratically established institutions.
“We ask: How can Nigerians celebrate Democracy Day when the rights of citizens are daily trampled and they no longer enjoy their freedom to politically associate and aspire, as was the order under the PDP rule?
“Where is the democracy when Government tends towards military fiat: where citizens are wantonly arrested, locked up and dehumanized just for expressing political opinions considered to be at variance with views held by those in power?
“Where is the democracy when opposition members have become endangered species and considered enemies of the State without any just cause; where dissenting voices are daily harassed, arrested, handcuffed and arraigned on trumped-up charges, just to emasculate opposition?
“Where is democracy when our National Assembly, the very bastion of our democracy, is under siege; where Federal Lawmakers are daily blackmailed, hounded, harassed, intimidated, detained and dehumanized; where strange elements invade the hallowed chambers of the Senate, threatened our Senators and forcefully cart away the mace, yet nobody has been prosecuted?
“Where is democracy when Court Judges are arrested in the middle of the night by agents of State; top government officials engage in actions and speeches that promote division, hatred and bloodletting; when Journalists and Media Houses are being harassed and intimidated and our nation, in the last three years, ranking among the most hostile to free press?” PDP asked.
