The National chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, has charged Nigerians to ignore alleged Military intimidation, troop out in large numbers on Saturday and vote.
Prince Secondus in a statement signed by his Media Adviser, Ike Avoyi said: “If Nigerians fail to come out, they would be playing the game of the All Progressives Congress (APC) that has turned the country’s armed forces against her citizens in a bid to scare them away from exercising their civic responsibilitíes.
The statement further reads: ” The National Chairman admonished the military who has shown more than passing interest in this general elections to seek constitutional amendment and get fully involved in the governance rather than continuous violation of the statutory rules of the land.
“Prince Secondus bemoans the damage being done to the country’s military by their blatant and brazen involvement in partisan politics.
“It is scandalous and dangerous for the county’s military to continue to ignore the cries of the people on the illicit roles of the military in the South-south region notwithstanding that the highest court in the land, the Supreme Court has a standing ruling, barring the military from participating in any way during the election.
“But despite the provocative actions of the military ahead of Saturday’s election particularly in the South South geopolitical area, Prince Secondus has this caveat for them, ‘whatever you do in a democracy what prevails is peoples will power not gun.”
