National Assembly Resolutions Vindicate Us – PDP

Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu (R), with Senate Minority Leader, Sen Godswill Akpabio are members of the opposition PDP

The opposition Peoples Democratic Party has said that the resolutions of the National Assembly on insecurity and other challenges facing Nigeria have vindicated its criticism of the ruling All Progressives Congress.

On Tuesday the National Assembly, in the resolutions read by Senate President Bukola Saraki, warned President Muhammadu Buhari against the “systematic harassment and humiliation by the Executive of perceived political opponents.”

And in a statement issued by the PDP national spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party accused President Buhari of misruling Nigerians.

The PDP insisted that the President must be called to order through an appropriate legislative instrument.

It also commended the lawmakers for their patriotism and courage in unanimously standing up for democracy, rule of law, national stability and cohesion at the nation’s ”trying time.”

The statement read in part: “Nigerians would recall that the PDP had consistently pointed to the misrule of the Buhari presidency, as well as the unrelenting violations of our constitution, unprecedented executive highhandedness, abuse of the rights of citizens and the erosion of all known democratic norms under this administration.

“These are in addition to the foisting of siege mentality on Nigerians as well as presidential aloofness to important issues of state.”
