Seige On Senate: PDP Speakers Condemn Action, Say Evil Will Never Prevail

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Speakers’ Forum has described the barricade and unlawful house restriction on the Senate President and his deputy respectively as an attempt to undermine Nigeria’s hard earned Democracy and a total disregard for the Legislature which it said is the popular symbol of Democracy.

In a press release signed by the Chairman, Rt. Hon. John Gaul Lebo, who also doubles as the Speaker of the Cross River State House of Assembly, the forum condemned the action of Security Agents and other collaborators as a shameful and malicious attempts to subdue the Legislature and compromise her independence.

The release further stated that, “It has become apparent that our security agencies have now become willing tools in the hands of the ruling party to achieve selfish political gains via intimidation, coercion and trumped up charges against dissenters; consequently, our democracy has come under severe attacks.

“After 19 years of the current democratic order, it is obvious that the first 16 years under the PDP government offered Nigerians the political environment to develop democratic values and culture. Regrettably, the last 3 years have seen a desperate imposition of “Rule by Law” in place of “Rule of Law”.”

The forum also made a clarion call on proponents and lovers of democracy across the world to rise and not sit back and watch democracy being raped in Nigeria by anti democratic forces who have found themselves in power.
