The National Publicity Secretary of the Abubakar Kawu Baraje-led faction of the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Chukwuemeka Eze, has described the revocation of a plot of land in Maitama District, Abuja, belonging to one of its members and governor of Kano State – Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso – as an act of “desperation” by the Bamanga Tukur-led PDP.
He said what currently obtains in the country is not Democracy but a military because party members were being hounded for daring to hold a different opinion.
Eze said,“This is no longer democracy; we are experiencing a military regime under the guise of democracy.
“It is very unfortunate that while we are crying about democracy to the outside world and the need to entrench democracy here, we are fighting our fellow democrats just because of their political beliefs.”
According to the faction’s spokesman, those currently at the helm of affairs must realize that no matter the ferocity of their attacks on members and sympathizers of the Baraje-PDP, the PDP must be returned to its original owners.
His words, “If revoking the landed properties of our members in Abuja and elsewhere is all they can do, they should look for better things to do.
“If this is the way they want to rule Nigeria in 2015, we will do everything legally possible to ensure that no military exposed mentality will have its way.
“Let them go ahead and use this opportunity to fully expose themselves to the Nigerian people, we must elect people, who will truly serve Nigerians and not those who will serve themselves”, Eze said.
