The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, has alerted international community that the ruling APC government and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) are working to truncate the hard earned democracy nurtured for 16 years by the PDP administration 

Prince Secondus said that indicators on ground shows that the party is not preparing to conduct free and fair election in 2019. 

The National Chairman told a visiting team of European Union (EU) led by Ketil Karlsen that the party is concerned at the emerging signs showing that 2019 election might be rigged.

According to a statement from the National Chairman’s media office signed by his media adviser Ike Abonyi, Secondus told his visitors that the government and its agencies were not realistically preparing for free and fair election.

“What we see is marshal system of framing up opposition leaders and trying to intimidate them

“They are not ready to observe the rule of law and there is no democracy without rule of law.

“We conducted election in 2015, the party and the Presidential candidate did not go to court, we had smooth transition because we believe in the rule of law.

“Nigeria as the largest black nation in the globe cannot afford crisis because of the huge effect it would have in the continent and the entire global democratic community if democracy is truncated.”

Prince Secondus then appealed to European Union and other international partners to keep a watch on Nigeria ahead 2019 and put pressure on the government and INEC for a free, fair and credible election.

He said that the European Union’s visit is coming at the appropriate time given that President Muhammadu Buhari has just indicated interest to recontest for a second term in 2019.

Prince Secondus stated that the PDP is mobilising its members and other Nigerians ahead of the election through its rebranding project that is targeted at youths and women.
