The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) have reacted to the blockage of National Assembly entrance by security operatives, describing it as a disgrace to Nigeria’s democratic process.
The National Publicity Secretary of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Kola Ologbondiyan, said this on Tuesday during an interview on Channels Television’s Breakfast program, Sunrise Daily.
“What we are facing now honestly is a disgrace to our democratic process,” he said while condemning the refusal of security operatives to grant lawmakers and journalists entry into the National Assembly.
He accused the current administration of lacking ‘strategy’ and engaging in acts that could undermine Nigeria’s democracy.
He further accused the executive arm of the government of using the state’s security apparatus to prevent the members of parliament from doing their normal business.
His criticism comes a day after the PDP gave an earlier warning of alleged plans to impeach the Senate President, Bukola Saraki and his Deputy, Ike Ekweremadu.
Earlier today, men of the Nigeria Police and the Department of State Service (DSS) stormed the National Assembly denying lawmakers and journalists access into the complex.
