Prince Uche Secondus, the acting National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has accused the ruling party, All Progressive Congress (APC) led-government of President Mohammadu Buhari of being bias in its dealings with the opposition, by turning a blind eye to the atrocities of its supporters. He stated that some of the 55 Nigerians accused by the Federal Government to have stolen N1.34 trillion are presently part of Muhammadu Buhari’s cabinet.
He faulted the handcuffing of PDP’s National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, during his recent court appearances, and emphasized that PDP was not against Buhari’s war against corruption, but mentioned that it must not be selective. He stated that the government must adhere strictly to the rule of law, adding that those involved, even if they are in the present government, must be brought to book.
This involves both APC and PDP. Those involved are still in the government of Muhammadu Buhari, serving as ministers, some holding ranking positions even in security agencies. He should bring them to book; we are not against his fight against corruption, but it should be holistic and there must be rule of law.
Look at the handcuffs on PDP National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh. It is wicked and vindictive. Nigerians should see what is happening in a democracy because Metuh is the spokesperson of opposition party. Now, no one can speak freely.
We are operating under threat and a Police state; our families now live under threat and they are being asked questions at the airport.
Prince Uche Secondus, took over as acting National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP from Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu in May 2015.
Just recently, some national officers of the PDP had called for the resignation of party’s national publicity secretary, Olisa Metuh, acting chairman of the board of trustees (BOT), Bello Mohammed and that of the acting national chairman Uche Secondus.
