A group of lawmakers in the House of Representatives under the aegis of Parliamentary Democrats Group (PDG) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari from his vacation with a strong to order the immediate arrest of national Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole before he destroys the nation’s democracy.
The PDG in a statement by its spokesman, Hon. Timothy Golu, on Sunday in Abuja said since Oshiomhole came on board he has employed primitive ways to denigrate the institution of the National Assembly just to achieve a wishful thought that is alien to democracy.
The group said “Oshiomhole has refused to sleep because he wants Senator Bukola Saraki removed as duly elected Senate President”
It also accused the APC national chairman of working tirelessly to scuttle the current democracy through his utterances and activities.
“He is distracting our nation’s democracy and ridiculing us before the global democratic community. His style is too primitive for democracy.
“Let him come through the door with 2/3 of the senators to legally achieve his selfish objective. What his ignorance would not allow him know is that even some APC senators are not part of the charade. Access to democracy is not brigandage but respect to the rule of law and due process.
“Oshiomhole’s anti democratic utterances is making a us a laughing stock. We advise him not to kill himself on Saraki as there is nothing he can do to subvert the law of democracy just to achieve an anti democratic goal.
“We call on President Buhari to immediately call him to order or direct the IGP Ibrahim Idris to arrest him so that peace can flow.
“He is destabilising the National Assembly with threats and the use of security agencies to haunt our leaders”, the group said in the statement.
It further stated that “we shall continue to resist them. The president should not distance himself from this and should intervene urgently to allow the parliament perform it’s responsibilities. Now that President Buhari is back, he should show by example.
“We commend him for sacking the former DSS DG, Lawal Daura and also request that Oshiomhole be made to shut up because since he became APC chairman, he has relocated to the National Assembly and occupied himself with Saraki”.
