From Onyebuchi Ezigbo in Abuja
The Peoples Democratic Party has said that the resolutions of the joint session of the National Assembly is a vindication of its stance on the President Muhammadu Buhari administration.
The PDP commended the members of the National Assembly for their patriotism and courage in unanimously standing up for democracy, rule of law, national stability and cohesion at “this trying time.”
In a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbobdiyan, on Tuesday, PDP said it had “consistently pointed to the misrule of the Buhari presidency, as well as the unrelenting violations of our constitution, unprecedented executive highhandedness, abuse of the rights of citizens and the erosion of all known democratic norms under this administration”.
It said that in addition, the APC had foisted a siege mentality on Nigerians as well as presidential aloofness to important issues of state thereby resulting in the escalation of violence, killings and daily bloodlettings in the country.
“From the above, it has become evident that Mr. President must be called to order through an appropriate legislative instrument. The PDP therefore calls on all democrats, across board, irrespective of party affiliations, to come together, support the National Assembly and save our democracy from the misrule of the Buhari presidency.”
