PDP raises alarm over plot to remove Saraki with Police, DSS


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has raised an alarm over a fresh plot to use the Police and the Department of State Services (DSS), to forcefully remove Senate President, Senator Bukola Saraki, from office.
In a statement issued by Kola Ologbondiyan, its National Publicity Secretary, in Abuja, the party also condemned in totality, “the continued clampdown, harassment, intimidation, arrest and detention” of members of the Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) by the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led administration.
According Ologbondiyan, the plot against Saraki, “which is akin to the last invasion of the National Assembly by anti-democratic forces, is to scuttle the success being recorded by the PDP Presidential campaign organisation in its consultations and winning campaigns across the nation ahead of the 2019 general election.”
The PDP said that it is privy to clandestine meetings by the Buhari Presidency and the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC), which it observed, has not been able to constitute a Presidential campaign organisation, but keen to derail the PDP Presidential campaign by going against Senator Saraki.
The statement added: “Part of the plot is to use the police and the DSS to fabricate spurious charges against Senator Saraki, distract him and destabilize the PDP Presidential campaign, a scheme the PDP described as dead on arrival, as Nigerians are solidly behind the PDP in the mission to rescue the nation from the misrule of the APC.”
