No amount of attack can scare us-PDP

The PDP however vows that no amount of attacks, aggression or
acts of intimidation will deter it from confronting and dismantling
the rigging machinery of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and
coast to victory in 2019.
The whole world was shocked when the Police physically
assaulted, fired teargas cannisters and violently dispersed our
party leaders who were on peaceful protest to the Force
Headquarters, Abuja, over the use of police by the APC to rig
elections, particularly the September 22, 2018 Osun State
Governorship election.
Acting on “orders from above”, the Police assaulted our elected
leaders, including our national chairman, Prince Uche Secondus,
Senate President Bukola Saraki, Ekiti Governor, Chief Ayo Fayose,
our presidential aspirants, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, Bar. Kabiru
Tanimu, Mallam Sule Lamido, among others.
This unwarranted attack has left no one in doubt that our Police
has finally been turned into a militant wing of the APC, with direct
orders to use force to repress opposition and turn our nation into a
one party state.
It has also shown that the Police, under President Muhammadu
Buhari’s administration, has officially declared war on the
opposition and there is no way our safety is guaranteed under the
current police leadership.
If the Police, which ought to protect the people, the law and the
democratic process, could show such violent aggression on
notable leaders, then it can no longer be trusted with the welfare
and safety of regular citizens.
One can only imagine the level of violence that is being daily
unleashed on our citizens by the APC- control Federal Police.
It is completely reprehensible that the same APC leaders, Including
President Buhari, who were allowed to freely hold protests under
the PDP administration, could now turn around to approve police
brutality and aggression against the opposition.
We know that the essence of such attacks is to instil fear and
siege mentality on the people so as to cow them to submission
ahead of the 2019 general election.
The PDP therefore calls on all Nigerians and the international
community to rise up in direct condemnation of APC’s use of state
apparatus of Power against law abiding citizens and groups.
On our own part, the PDP lists this particular violent attack as a
wake up call to all Nigerians to rise in defense of our democracy.
This country belongs to all of us and the PDP will never allow
anybody, no matter how highly placed, to in any way whatsoever,
intimidate or subjugate us ahead of the 2019 elections.
We are now determined to face all force of intimidation until we
return our nation to the path of rule of law, good governance and
national cohesion.

Can the south east (Igbo speaking tribe) produce the next Nigerian President come 2023?
