The Acting National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Uche Secondus has described the recent invasion of the Government House, Uyo by men of the Department of State Service as a political coup against the people and government of Akwa Ibom State.
He was addressing a mammoth crowd of PDP faithful who thronged the Ibom International Airport to receive him and other members of the National Working Committee of the PDP yesterday.
Secondus who said the National Working Committee was in Akwa Ibom State on a solidarity visit added that “the Invasion of the Government House by the DSS is unlawful and unacceptable. For sometimes now the DSS has been acting as though it is an arm of the All Progressives Congress. The DSS has been hounding the opposition.”
Secondus alleged that the invasion is one of APC’s actions to intimidate the people of Akwa Ibom State and press on the evil plan to take over PDP controlled States by force.
“This action is barbaric and the entire State, country and international community must unite in condemning the action of the DSS,” he stressed.
Alleging that the Director General of DSS was a member of Intelligence Committee of APC, Secondus maintained that, he is using the machinery of the Security agency to coerce INEC officials and the Judiciary to act against the popular will of the people given at elections in PDP controlled State.
“We are aware of the maneuvering of the Security architecture of the State controlled by PDP. We are aware of all kinds of transfers in DSS to achieve the plan of taking over by force PDP controlled States. Security men have gone to tribunal to testify for APC. But we are not worried about all that because at the end the truth will prevail. I can assure you that the plans by APC to takeover by force Rivers, Akwa Ibom and Delta States will fail” Secondus assured.
The Acting Chairman also demanded that for the provocative action of the DSS, President Muhammadu Buhari should set up a judicial panel of unbiased eminent persons and lawyers to look at what happened so that those behind it will face the full weight of the law.
He regretted that two weeks after the dastardly act, the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF) has not spoken against it.
“It is sad that everything in Nigeria is partisan. Otherwise the NGF should have condemned the action; no matter the parties governors belong to. We expect that they should condemn the invasion of Akwa Ibom Government House by DSS.” He maintained.
Secondus who said the PDP offered Nigerians freedom of speech and association by signing the Freedom of Information Act (FOI), called on Nigerians not to allow the push for one party State by APC.
He insisted that a multi-party democracy will lead to sustainable development in all sectors of the nation.
The Chairman lamented that APC has perfected plans to rig elections in Kogi and Bayelsa States coming up soon through INEC led by Amina Zakari, stressing that “The tenure of Zakari has expired and she can’t manage any election. She should therefore be removed.”
In his remarks, the Akwa Ibom State Governor, Mr. Udom Gabriel Emmanuel stated that Akwa Ibom is totally PDP and the people fully support the government.
He thanked the NWC for the visit, saying it has further strengthened the leadership of the State, party and the people.
The Governor assured the NWC of the commitment of his administration to provide jobs for the people and improve their lives in all areas.
“Akwa Ibom is peaceful. Here we don’t discriminate against one another along partisan or ethnic lines, we accommodate everyone. The free and compulsory education, free health for pregnant women, children under five and the aged is enjoyed even by non-indigenes who are very many.”
The Governor added that PDP led government in Akwa Ibom State will continue to work hard to lead in good governance, provision of the right environment for industrialization and respect rule of law.
The PDP State Chairman, Obong Paul Ekpo who led members of the State Executive Council of the Party, Chapter Chairmen and other Party officials assured the NWC that the Party in the State is united and will defend the votes given the governor and its leaders at the 2015 general elections.
Obong Ekpo maintained that the crowd that came to receive the NWC was a clear pointer to the fact that PDP was in firm control of the State and the people are solidly behind it.
