Buhari Treating Us Like Prisoners Of War,’ Says PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of treating its members like prisoners of war.

The PDP also said that regardless of the situation, it would not be afraid of the intimidation being carried out by the Buhari administration.

The comments were made on Tuesday, July 21, 2015, by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh while addressing party stakeholders in Lokoja, Kogi State.

He said:

“We are being treated as if we are prisoners of war. We are being treated as if we are refugees. We are not afraid, we have faith in our strength and unity; faith in the peace, unity and progress of Nigeria.”

“We (PDP) are not afraid of the intimidation, harassment and arrest of our members by the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, if the arrest is done within the confines of the law.”

“We condemn the uncivilised method of arrest, intimidation and the denial of the fundamental human rights of members of our party who served in the last administration by the Buhari led administration.”

“If the ruling party believes that there is anyone who has served in the federal government and is guilty of corrupt practices, they are free within the law to investigate as long as they go through due process and observe the rule of law.”

The PDP had earlier condemned the invasion of former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki’s home by officials of the State Security Service (SSS).
