Ayodele-OjoThe opposition Peoples Democratic Party has been accused of trying to promote instability in the country by ambushing the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government.
A retired military general, Brig.-Gen. Ayodele Ojo, who made the assertion on Saturday, said that the action of the PDP senators to allow Ike Ekweremadu to emerge as the Deputy Senate President in a chamber controlled by the All Progressives Congress, APC, was aimed at destabilising or ambushing the new administration.
Ojo said, “I think that is not the best way to play the role of opposition. The opposition should be credible and constructive. As for the distinguished Senator Ekweremadu, he should have declined his nomination on moral grounds. What new innovation or added value is he bringing to that office?
“To my mind, PDP should have allowed the new government to successfully transit instead of deliberately promoting instability or trying to ambush it even before it takes off. My suggestion to Ekweremadu is for him to resign as the Deputy Senate President in the interest of peace and stability of Nigeria. That to me is the path of honour”.
Ojo, who was a director in the Defence Headquarters, also faulted the National Assembly for being the weakest link in the nation’s democracy and called on Nigerian lawmakers to exhibit democratic traits as exhibited by the United States’ congress after which the Nigerian legislative system was fashioned.
On the President’s delay in appointing ministers close to two months after he assumed office, the retired general argued that a serious government with a mission for change could not afford to hastily form its cabinet.
According to Ojo, President Buhari must stand his grounds against any attempt to be stampeded by the PDP and other opposition elements into appointing ministers.
