Governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have accused the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC)-led federal government of plotting to foist a one-party state dictatorship on Nigeria through deploying unlawful threats, intimidation and outright underhand tactics to capture PDP governors.
They also alleged that the current administration has become a clear and present danger to democracy in Nigeria.
Reacting to Mattawalle’s defection however, the director general of PDP Governors Forum, Hon. CID Maduabum, in a statement, said “The APC and its government at the federal level now constitutes A clear and present danger to Nigeria and especially its democracy.
We will continue to resist the attempt by the APC to foist a one party dictatorship on Nigerians. We are confident that if Nigerians are allowed to express their political preferences through a free and fair election, APC will be roundly rejected as the PDP remains the only credible, acceptable alternative platform that could deliver good governance for Nigeria.
It is time for well-meaning Nigerian patriots to rise and join together to rescue Nigeria from the APC malaise,” they said.
The PDP governors while condemning the harassment of Zamfara State governor, alleged that the President had made “a clear subtle threat” to Mattawalle to join him or face consequences during a recent interview where he directly and prejudicialy regretted that Zamfara State was governed by another party other than his own.
They added that all sorts of threats had been deployed earlier by the APC Caretaker/National Convention Planning Committee, “whose only job seem to be to just lure PDP Governors and other PDP Stakeholders abandoning in the process their mandate of organising a National Convention.
We remember the infamous statement by the former APC National Chairman that once you join APC all your sins will be forgiven by the powers that be.
This appears to be the guiding principle of Mr President and APC. “It is quite distressing and shameful to watch PDP Governors and some other stakeholders who are literally forced to join APC being PARADED at the presidential Villa like CAPTURED PERSONS, immediately after their ACQUISITION as CULPRITS by the APC.
Admittedly, everyone is innocent until proven guilty, but the immorality of it all is quite nauseating. No principles are involved or invoked.
It doesn’t matter whether you are a convicted criminal or a wanted person by security agencies. It doesn’t matter whether you are fingered in various investigations like NDDC scams, NNPC probes, or other accusations of fleecing the nation of billions of Naira.”
They added that if the President or APC spends 10 per cent of the energy they use in wooing PDP governors and stalwarts in tackling the ravaging incidents of terrorism, banditry, kidnapping, insurgency, herders/ farmers conflicts, separatist tendencies, or in building infrastructure, providing food, health care, education and tending to the general wellbeing of Nigerians, the country would be a better place.
