Removal of CJN: PDP Suspends Campaign

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Council has suspended its presidential campaign in protest of President Muhammadu Buhari’s decision to suspend the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen.

The PDP Campaign Council further predicated the suspension of its campaign activities in solidarity with Nigerians in our collective rejection of the assault against our democratic order.

Describing President Buhari action as a “dangerous and brazen assault on the constitution”, the PDP Campaign Council says in a statement issued in Abuja on Friday night that there is no point in campaigning to contest in an election, whose very basis has been so flagrantly undermined.

“The basis for this election is the democracy itself. When democracy comes under this kind of virulent attack, then the election itself becomes superfluous,” the statement said.

The PDP Presidential Campaign was scheduled to be in Benue State on Saturday. But it now said it is suspending its campaign activities for a period of 72 hours in the first instance.

“In the first instance, we are suspending our campaign for 72 hours. It is our hope that President Buhari will listen to the voice of all lovers of democracy the world over and restore democracy in Nigeria immediately and without qualifications. At the moment, the President has effectively suspended the constitution under whose basis the elections are being contested.

The action of President Buhari represents a constitutional breach and a direct attack on our democracy. This must never be allowed to stand, as there is no way by which democracy can survive under these autocratic tendencies.

We call on all well meaning Nigerians to rise in defence of democracy and save our nation from this imminent slide into tyranny.

Signed:

Prince Uche Secondus
Co-chairman
PDP Presidential Campaign Council

    I see oil pipes blowing a new style of life henceforth. The Lagos Seaport is another target after pipelines. Nigeria is heading to the final true economic sabotage.

    We are practicing SELFPOCKETOCRACY. The signs of outright rigging of elections are obvious. When a lion is placed to protect the goat, the goat to protect the tuber of yam, the cock to watch over the corn, what do you expect???
    We, are only observing a tip of an iceberg, the worst is by the corner.
    Why did we not protest in other atrocities but this one that selfishly concerns us?
    Watch your back, trust no man.

    Democracy has come to stay no matter how anyone try to halt it because we must resist it.

    In as much as the suspension of CJN Onoghen did not follow due process, that is not enough for the PDP to suspend presidential campaigns!! Onoghen is not the PDP flagbearer in the forthcoming elections and his suspension should not have any bearing on the campaigns. or is PDP telling us their supporters that they are throwing in the towel? the campaigns need to be sustained as d elections are just around the corner..
