PDP governors have asked the security and antigraft agents to be mindful of how they carry out instructions from the APC-led government as they will not be in power forever. In a statement sent of today by their coordinator Osaro Onaiwu, the governors from the main opposition party, condemned the handcuffing of its National Publicity Secretary Olisa Metuh to the Federal High Court yesterday and today. The statement in reads in part;
“The only reasonable conclusion we have reached is that the anti-corruption agencies and other institutions of state have allowed themselves to be dictated to by a single vindictive authority which takes pleasure in using power anyhow and in anyway in gross abuse of the constitution. Security and anti-graft agencies should be mindful of how they take instructions from political office holders as the tide of power was constantly moving, as the APC will not be in power forever. The cuffing of the national publicity secretary of the PDP exemplifies a terrible decay of power by the APC regime which sees itself bigger than the democratic state, Nigeria, which brought it to power. For the avoidance of doubt, the Forum is not against the anti-corruption mantra of the present regime of President Buhari, but we insist it must be within the ambit of our constitution and appropriate laws. Any other means is a descent into fascism with its attendant consequences in the long run.”.
