The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has raised an alarm over plot by the Federal Government to close down the Akure Airport today which is coinciding with its governorship rally in Ekiti.
Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP spokesperson while chatting with the media said, “we have the information that the airport in Akure will be shut down on a day we are holding our mega rally for our governorship election. We want Nigerians to caution the government and we want to say that no amount of intimidation will stop us from winning the election. ”
The party also cautioned the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its vested interests in government circles on the dangers of sponsoring protests against the members of the National Assembly.The party said such is capable of destroying the bedrock of our democracy, pitching Nigerians against one another and driving our nation into anarchy.
Indeed, Nigerians were shocked over revelations in which cabinet ministers and appointees of the President were alleged to have paid the protesters with a view to using them to embarrass the National Assembly on Tuesday.
Nigerians will recall how, in April this year, hoodlums gained access into the National Assembly, invaded the hallowed chambers of the Senate and made away with the mace, while threatening our lawmakers and disrupting proceedings in the parliament.
Members of the National Assembly are direct representatives of the people and the failure of the Federal Government to recall Senator Dino Melaye, despite the huge resources invested, speaks volume of the real position of Nigerians on the ongoing stand-off between the executive and the legislature.
The PDP therefore cautions the APC and its interests in the Federal executive to end their plots against the National Assembly and direct such energies to providing good governance, which has eluded the nation in the last three years.
For a better society
