The sheer petulant desperation of the PDP-led Jonathan administration has assumed a suffocating trend for Nigeria’s democracy that if not quickly nipped in the bud will make democratic practices a sad relic in the nation’s history.
The Vice Chairman of the Senate Committee on Public Service and Establishment, Mr. Babafemi Ojudu, stated in his reaction to the withdrawal of the security details of Alhaji Aminu Tambuwal, the
Speaker of the House of Representatives.
Ojudu said the PDP-led Federal Government had initially been a bit circumspect, but had now thrown caution to the wind owing to frustration brought about by the crumbling of its character-deficient political party which is now deserted by all men of impeccable character and patriotic valour.
According to Ojudu, the defection of Tambuwal was the last straw that broke the camel’s back and has now revealed that the PDP would not refrain from descending to any base level in its failed struggle to keep Nigeria within its frail grip.
Ojudu said this is more reason all right-thinking Nigerians must shun ethnic jingoism and political differences to free the country from the toothless gnaw of the PDP and the Jonathan presidency.
He said: “It is true that it is not an easy task given their stolen funds-serviced robust war chest, but all this would amount to naught if Nigerians unite in purpose and determination to fight this monster.
A people driven by purpose and determination would defeat the strongest of armies. Already, they are in disarray and not properly thinking. All it requires to send them to oblivion is to vote massively against them next year and ensure that our votes are not stolen,” Ojudu added.
Ojudu lambasted the Nigeria Police Force and other security agencies for withdrawing Tambuwal’s security details, adding that it is saddening that rather than preserve democracy in the country, the security agencies have chosen to team up with oppressors of the people, forgetting that they are paid with tax payers’ money.
He said should Nigeria’s democracy be truncated with state-backed acts of impunity, the security agencies should be aware that it would be on the front row of whatever attendant ugliness.
