The Peoples Democratic Party has imputed plot to wipe out opposition political parties to a supposed cabal in the presidency.
PDP made this claim through its National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba.
The latter in a statement he released on Wednesday said a cabal of President Bola Tinubu in an alleged bid to turn the country to a one-party state is out to weaken judiciary and the electoral body.
“The PDP alerts of attempts and actions of a cabal within the Presidency to emasculate the Institutions of Democracy in Nigeria, especially the Independent National Electoral Commission and the Judiciary in the desperation to foist a one-party state on Nigerians,” Ologunagba wrote.
He went on to justify PDP’s claim by referencing outcomes of election cases that went against the party in court saying, “Aside from the preponderance of such ugly scenarios in Plateau State, the conduct and outcome of certain election petitions in Zamfara, Sokoto, Kebbi, Nasarawa, and other states of the nation where PDP was robbed of victory through the Courts are pointers to a systemic emasculation of the opposition in a bid to impose a one-party state and pave way for totalitarianism in the country.
“This situation is a clear and present danger to the sustenance of Nigeria’s democracy, unity, political stability and corporate existence as a nation, which is capable of breeding agitation, citizens loss of confidence in the system, restiveness, anarchy and chaos.”
