Saraki: BCO Threat Reveals Those Behind NASS Invasion, Says PDP
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described the brazen threat by
the Buhari Campaign Organization (BCO) to take over the National
Assembly, should the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Presidency
fail in their bid to forcefully change the leadership of the Senate, as
The party said the threat has also further confirmed the involvement of
the Presidency and forces associated with President Muhammadu Buhari in
the invasion of the National Assembly, the besieging of the official
residences of Senate President Bukola Saraki and Deputy Senate President
Ike Ekweremadu by security agencies as well as the plots to arrest,
detain and impeach them ahead of Senate’s resumption.
Nigerians can now see, from the threat by the official campaign
organization of Mr. President, that the Presidency was economical with
the truth in its statement wherein it attempted to dissociate itself
from the ugly developments in the Senate, which have put our nation’s
stability and our democracy under serious stress.
Furthermore, we invite Nigerians to note that the All Progressives
Congress (APC) has given its official nod to this treasonable threat by
BCO to forcefully take over the institution of the National Assembly, an
arm of government duly established by our constitution, thereby
confirming its complicity in the attacks on the legislature.
Consequently, the PDP charges security agencies to save the nation’s
democracy by immediately looking into the immediate and remote impetus
behind this open threat to our democracy and make their findings public.
