PDP Reacts To Saraki’s Outcry On IGP

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has reacted to the outcry of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, over plots by the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, to frame him, describing it as “brazen assaults on the institutions of democracy.”

The PDP made this known in a statement issued by the party’s spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan.

Recall that NIGERIA NEWS had reported that Saraki alleged that Idris was plotting to use suspected cultists, who have been in detention, to implicate him and the Governor of Kwara state, Abdulfatah Ahmed.

However, in reaction, the PDP in the statement said that, “We have taken judicious note of assertions by the Senate President that the said plot is allegedly being hatched by the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Idris Ibrahim, “to settle scores” with the Senate over its recent declaration that he is not fit to hold public office.”

“The PDP is alarmed by the trend of brazen assaults on the institutions of democracy, particularly the National Assembly and the judiciary, in addition to unrelenting attacks on dissenting voices, especially as we approach the 2019 general elections.”

“Nigerians will recall that the PDP had earlier alerted of plots to arrest, harass, detain dissenting voices and opposition members on trumped-up charges, as well as intimidate institutions of democracy and pave the way for a one-party state in our country.”

“Nigerians will further recall the invasion of the Senate chambers by thugs, who disrupted proceedings and carted away the mace. Only last Friday, hoodlums violently attacked a High Court in Rivers state with guns, in a bid to stop the judiciary from making pronouncements on an electoral matter.”

“The PDP therefore charges the National Assembly to defend the nation’s democracy by sparing no energy in pursuing its resolution of engaging President Muhammadu Buhari on these assaults, in addition to putting in motion, all legislative instruments available to it, to curtail all excesses in government before the situation finally gets out of hand.”
