National chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, has said that the peace accord signed by the two frontline presidential candidates, Muhammadu Buhari, of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and Atiku Abubakar of the PDP. Is virtually dead.
Prince Secondus said that all the terms of the agreement for peace have been broken by the ruling APC which has deployed military and the police operatives to arrest and detain PDP leaders across the country.
The national chairman said that the party expects the peace committee and the international community to note the declaration of war on PDP leaders across the country by over zealous security operatives specially raised for this purpose as they operate in violation of the peace accord.
Prince Secondus said that the APC and President Buhari are not disposed for the peace as they have flagrantly violated the terms of the agreement.
In a statement from his media office, Prince Secondus said that reports reaching him from Kwara, Akwa Ibom, Rivers, Kano, Kaduna and other states show that PDP leaders are being harassed with arrest and detention by security operatives over flimsy reasons.
He noted that while APC is using military and police personnel to chase PDP leaders across the country, they continue to give protection to APC leaders as they ferry money and election materials to various locations.
“Private jets belonging to APC leader in Lagos have been stationed at the airports protected by government operatives as money is being moved from the central bank of Nigeria, CBN, to states.
The PDP boss said that General Abdulsalmi Abubakar led peace committee should take copious notice of all the happenings and note that APC and President Buhari are not disposed to any peace accord.
Prince Secondus said that all the ingredients of peace have been disregarded by the APC operatives who have decided to even run foul of the electoral act in their desperation to cling on to power even when it’s obvious that Nigerians have turned their backs on them.
