The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has come out to say that the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC is trying to disrupt Nigeria’s democracy.

The party recently revealed this on Sunday in a statement signed by Kola Ologbondiyan, its spokesman, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, it is clear that APC is standing against the democracy of the country with its recent acts of banditry and electoral violence.

He added that the silence of the APC and the Buhari Presidency to the attack and assassination attempt on Benue State Governor, Dr Samuel Ortom by bandits is very worrying, and it calls for serious concern.

His words, “Our party holds that such disposition in the face of an assassination attempt on a democratically elected governor by bandits as well as the killing of innocent Nigerians and a law enforcement officer by suspected APC thugs, amounts to endorsing acts of violence and assault against our democratic order, sovereignty and corporate existence as a nation.”

“It is the belief of our party that such silence on an assassination attempt on Governor Ortom is portentous given that the attack came on the heels of his outspokenness in exposing those allegedly behind the incessant attacks on communities in the state and demanding that the federal government should live up to its responsibility on the protection of life and property in the state.”

“The PDP invites Nigerians to note how the APC and its leaders have been patronizing bandits, terrorists, and kidnappers and even justifying their acts of violence against innocent Nigerians while providing cover for the thugs they use in their plot to derail our democratic order.”

“Our party urges Nigerians to hold the APC and its leaders responsible for the attack on Governor Ortom as well as call them to question should any harm befall the governor or any member of his family and government.”

“In the same vein, the PDP cautions the APC and its leaders to stop stretching the limits of Nigerians’ patience through acts of electoral violence as well as shenanigans aimed at derailing our democracy and disintegrating our nation.”
