The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has accused the Federal Government under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari of planning to truncate the nation’s democracy.
The party said that it was totally wrong for security agencies to brutalise protesters.
It said it was unfortunate that the Federal Government could ask the security agencies to brutalise citizens who called on Buhari to either resume work or resign from office.
Spokesperson for the party, Dayo Adeyeye, while speaking with newsmen in Abuja on Tuesday, called on Nigerians to be at alert, saying the ruling party must be cautioned.
He said, “We have said it before and we will continue to say it: The Federal Government is planning to truncate the country’s democracy with its actions.
“There is no freedom of speech, no freedom of expression and no freedom of association.
“The PDP was in government and allowed protests; we never brutalised any protester.”
