PDP Cries That APC Plays Bad Democracy In Saraki’s Trial

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has raised an alarm over the alleged frequent interference on other arms of government by the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration.

The opposition in a statement, according to Leadership, warned that such interference must be curtailed as a matter of urgency if Nigeria is to practice democracy like other democratic systems across the world. The party, reacting to the withdrawal of the forgery case against Senator Bukola Saraki, Senator Ike Ekweremadu and others, described the case as a complete nothingness, adding that it was a shadow chase and bad politics on the part of the APC. The PDP national publicity secretary, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, said the federal government under the Penal Code Law has no business with the Standing Rules of the National Assembly.

“We are amused by this sudden realization of the Federal Government that the so called ‘Rule-Forgery Case’ was a shadow chase from the beginning. It was complete nothingness! More so, the claim through the Lead Counsel, Aliyu Umar, SAN, that the withdrawal was on grounds of respect for the rule of law and hierarchy of the Judiciary demonstrates more of comedy on the side of this Federal Government that has penchant for legal disobedience and abuse of Court processes,” Adeyeye said.
