Worried by the clampdown on its members, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has disclosed that it will hold a National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting on the issue.
The party also disclosed that its Contact and Mobilization Committee, which is interfacing with other political like-minds, was making progress and will soon submit its report.
Addressing a press conference yesterday in Abuja, PDP national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said “We want to assure that the PDP, as the party committed to democracy and the wellbeing of Nigerians, will urgently hold an enlarged National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting to take far-reaching decision on the next line of action, within the ambit and the provisions of the law, regarding the harassments and intimidations of citizens under the Buhari administration.”
“We hereby emphasize that this country belongs to all of us and no individual or group of individuals, no matter how highly placed, has the right to undermine our democratic process or hijack the apparatus of state power against any Nigerian, for any reason whatsoever,” he said.
On the work of its contact committee, he said “they are working very hard in the interest of Nigerians and I can assure you that very soon, the committee will make returns to the party.”
When asked on the reason for the committee’s delay in submitting progress report, Ologbondiyan said: “I need to emphasize that PDP is the father of democracy in the country, and we have a moral right to defend democracy whenever its threatened. We will also stand on the side of those whose rights are being assaulted. That is why it appears that we speak for all members of the opposition.
“They are Nigerians and they don’t need to be our members before we can defend their rights,” he added.
