A former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has predicted that the end of the Peoples Democratic Party will be disgraceful.
He alleged that the impeachment of some All Progressive Congress governors was an attempt to turn Nigeria into a one-party state but vowed that the PDP’s joy over the impeachment would be short-lived.
Tinubu’s media aide, Sunday Dare, said this on his Facebook page in a note titled, “PDP, Jonathan are building on quicksand,” on Monday.
He said it was unfortunate that the PDP-led Federal Government had trivialised the attempt on the life of a former military Head of State, Maj. Gen Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).
He berated the Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Olisa Metuh, for politicising the incident and expressed dissatisfaction in the manner with which investigation was being conducted.
He said, “Olisah Metuh’s recent reaction to the attack on General Buhari and the APC in which he strongly insinuated unreasonably that the APC must have arranged the attack on Buhari is a clear case of dementia. To disrespect General Buhari’s life and dishonour the innocent lives lost in order to score cheap political points is both offensive and unconscionable.
“The sun sets soon for the PDP and the party’s end will be ugly. Under the PDP, Nigeria suffers violence. The PDP takes Nigeria by force.
“The PDP plays with the tiger’s tail by pillaging the economy, brazenly stealing from public funds, subverting the Nigerian constitution, corruption of the police force, military and SSS in a desperate and near-criminal desire to win all elections.
“The truth is out about the culpability of the Presidency and a select few in the military and the President’s cabinet in the ongoing rapacious employment of state apparatus, resources and electoral institutions to impose a one party rule on Nigeria.”
He said President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration was worse than the dictatorship of both General Sani Abacha and General Ibrahim Babangida.
“The military leadership now serves the interest of Jonathan and the ruling party rather than defend the people and the constitution. Once the military is politicised, there goes our democracy,” he added.
