The Action Democratic Party (ADP) has accused the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kogi state of intimidating its members and vandalizing its promotional bill boards.
The party, accordingly appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to call the state chapter of his party to order and allow democracy to thrive in the state.
Further, the party warned that that ruling party was becoming intolerant and violent against opposing democratic views and actions.
In a statement signed yesterday in Abuja, by the party’s director of media, the ADP national chairman, Engr. Yabagi Sani, alleged that his members of the party in Kogi state were being threatened with violence and arrests on phantom charges.
“If by now, we have started experiencing the unleashing of intolerance and anger against growing opposition; observers should be worried and concerned as we are still 12 months away from general elections.”
Sani urged President Buhari to use his current consultations with his party men to remind his supporters and other party members that his continuity agenda does not worth the blood of any Nigerian.
Also, he said that “the APC is becoming too desperate to retain power which it has already lost through lacklustre performance and watchful absenteeism in the security of lives and property.
“If the overzealousness of certain leaders and governors of APC is not checked, they will constitute major road block to peaceful 2019 elections.”
He called on the Inspector General of Police to intervene and fish out the perpetrators of the vandalization of the ADP properties in Kogi state.
