The Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has alleged a siege by the Nigerian military at the residence of the party’s National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. “The party sees this as clear and present danger that the ambition of President Goodluck Jonathan to hang onto power even as Nigerians have clearly rejected him, is prodding Nigeria into disaster if not arrested now,” Lagos State Publicity Secretary of APC, Joe Igbokwe, said in a statement just issued in Lagos.

Lagos APC said that “fully armed and well kitted soldiers have been stationed at the gate of its National Leader since Sunday in a brazen show of despotism and an intimidation against the rising influence and popularity of Asiwaju Tinubu. The party warns that Jonathan and the leadership of the PDP, scared of the mass rejection it is presently facing after wasting precious years of Nigerians’ lives, will plunge Nigeria into intractable crisis if it does not arrest its present predilection to bringing Nigeria down because Nigerians have rejected PDP.”

Continuing, the statement said: “Nigerians know that the PDP, its leaders, supporters, enablers dread Tinubu like a pestilence and if the weight of the gargantuan smear campaign and devilish propaganda the PDP has sponsored against the person of Tinubu has failed to sway Nigerians to continue supporting the banditry of PDP governance, it should know that it is struggling in vain. For the PDP to think that after fighting the military to a standstill, Asiwaju should be intimidated by the impotent show of force by a dying, failed regime and its scared enablers, then it must have its head examined. Ever since PDP felt that Tinubu is the single most dreaded force against its crave for more irresponsible power, it had spared nothing in trying to contain the political force our National Leader has become. Its gamut of smear propaganda, procured with the trillions of Naira that have been audaciously stolen from the country’s treasury by the PDP and officials of the Jonathan regime, have failed woefully as Tinubu continues to rise in the political orbit of the country.

“We see the attempt to intimidate and harass Tinubu as one of the desperate efforts by a dying regime to arrest the forces of history and warns that the PDP and the Jonathan presidency are struggling in vain for nothing will save it from being thrown to the dumpsite of history. We see this brazen display of brute force as yet another in the series of the criminal misuse of the army which should be fighting the rampaging Boko Haram insurgents but have been turned into the enforcement wing of PDP’s inordinate selfish ambition.

“A nation that is being assailed with the sordid details of the misuse of the army to rig elections for the PDP in Ekiti is today being treated with the scenario of using the same army to intimidate opposition forces so as to procure another extension for a failed regime that ranks not only as the most corrupt but the most clueless and incompetent in the history of the country. It is a pity that when poor countries like Niger and Chad are sending troops to fight insurgents in Nigeria, our own troops are being deployed to fight the opposition and intimidate the nation for the sole purpose of forcing through the dead ambition for continuation by a failed and bankrupt regime.

“We urge Nigerians to rise up and fight the creeping culture of impunity and deliberate misuse of the army and other security agencies for the prosecution of the hideous interests of both Jonathan and the PDP. We want to remind Nigerians that the country belongs to us and not to power drunk and very corrupt officials of the Jonathan presidency and the PDP. We warn that nothing should be done to force this country to a needless crisis for the provocateurs of such crisis will not escape the fallout of their selfish actions.”
