The national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Umar Damagum, has alleged that a cabal in the Presidency was planning to overthrow the democratic rights of Nigerians.
Damagum, who spoke at a media briefing at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja on Thursday, said the cabal was determined to overturn the will of Nigerians to favour the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He claimed that there is an ongoing design by APC to “cripple democracy, overthrow the democratic rights of Nigerians, suppress the rule of law and downgrade our nation to a fiefdom run by the whims of a cabal.”
Damagum said it has become pertinent to alert Nigerians that the country is “fast sliding into totalitarianism following the activities of a cabal in the Presidency, which is out to emasculate institutions of democracy, especially the judiciary, in the desperation to subvert and overturn the expressed will of Nigerians in the various election matters across the country.”
This is coming after the PDP spokesman, Debo Ologunagba, accused the cabal in the Presidency of trying to slide Nigeria into anarchy and totalitarianism.
Ologunagba claimed that the cabal in the Presidency was trying to use the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the judiciary to throw Nigeria into anarchy.
