The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) @OfficialPDPNig has raised alarm to Nigerians and the International Community saying that the nation is dangerously sliding into totalitarianism and anarchy under the brazenly repressive and anti-people, All Progressives Congress (APC) @OfficialAPCNg administration.

In a press release by the National Publicity Secretary, Hon Debo Ologunagba on Wednesday 15th November 2023, the PDP said it’s alerting the public of attempts and actions of a cabal within the Presidency to emasculate the Institutions of Democracy in Nigeria.

They accused the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) @inecnigeria and the Judiciary of acting in desperation to foist a one-party State on Nigerians.

9News Nigeria reports that the Press Statement came a day after PDP’s 2023 election presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar @atiku sent out a tweet that that he was in a meeting with the National Executive Committee of the Inter-Party Advisory Council Nigeria (IPAC). Atiku had emphasised the importance of protecting Nigeria’s democracy. Atiku had expressed concern over the APC’s actions that are leading Nigeria towards a one-party dictatorship.

The PDP alerts of attempts and actions of a cabal within the Presidency to emasculate the Institutions of Democracy in Nigeria, especially the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) @inecnigeria and the Judiciary in the desperation to foist a one-party State on Nigerians.

This unfolding anti-democratic scenario is not only evident in the manipulation of elections but also in the conflicting judgments by electoral Courts, especially some Election Appeal Court Panels which judgments conflict with the express provisions of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended), the Electoral Act, 2022, INEC’s Guidelines and Regulations for elections.

What is more worrisome is that these obnoxiously contradictory judgments are targeted at the PDP to the effect that elections that were clearly won by PDP candidates are snatched away at the Courts and awarded to defeated candidates of the APC contrary to the provisions of the Law.

Aside from the preponderance of such ugly scenarios in Plateau State, the conduct and outcome of certain election petitions in Zamfara, Sokoto, Kebbi, Nasarawa and other States of the nation where PDP was robbed of victory through the Courts are pointers to a systemic emasculation of the opposition in a bid to impose a one-Party State and pave way for totalitarianism in the country.

This situation is a clear and present danger to the sustenance of Nigeria’s democracy, unity, political stability and corporate existence as a nation, which is capable of breeding agitation, citizens loss of confidence in the system, restiveness, anarchy and chaos.

Democracy must be allowed to thrive as the government of the people as expressed by their Will at elections. Any intrusion, breach, violation and/or transgression against that expressed Will as being witnessed today under the APC is a clear recipe for serious political crisis and portends grave consequences for our country.

It is therefore imperative to draw the attention of Nigerians and the whole world to the undermining and crippling of democracy and the danger our nation is facing at this moment.

The PDP calls on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as the custodian of the government to come clean by speaking out and denouncing any attempt or action that is capable of stifling democracy, the Rule of Law and muzzling of the independence of the Judiciary which is suggestive of a fait accompli on election matters pending before the Courts.

Our Party urges the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) and the President of the Court of Appeal to step in and assert the independence of the judiciary at this critical time for the defence and sustenance of democracy and the Rule of Law in Nigeria

The PDP charges Nigerians and indeed all lovers of democracy across the world to rise to the occasion, speak out and take urgent legitimate steps to defend, protect and preserve our hard-earned Democracy from the onslaught of the APC.
