Presidential candidate of Nigeria’s main opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar says cabals now uncomfortable following statements of concern raised by the united states, the united kingdom and the European Union over the suspension of the chief justice of Nigeria justice Walter Onnoghen.
The statement put further urged President Buhari to ensure that next month’s election is free and fair or face the consequences
His Words: “Buhari’s cabal is unhappy with the statements from the US, the British and the EU because they know that these world powers have agreed to re-route their latest and most technologically sophisticated spy satellites, including the NAOL-47 satellite, to provide comprehensive coverage over Nigeria on February 16.
“The photographs these satellites will deliver cannot only show someone reading a newspaper but also which newspaper they are reading.”
Recall that the Federal Government had, in a statement through Garba Shehu, stated that, “The nation’s security forces will confront any attempt to interfere with the process by elements from outside the country.”
The PDP candidate, however, expressed concerns over the “desperation of the APC to rig the forthcoming elections;” and advised the Independent National Electoral Commission, the military and the Police not to allow themselves to be used by “those interested in turning Nigeria’s democracy on its head.”
Meanwhile, President Buhari has summoned members of the All Progressives Congress in the Senate to a meeting at the Presidential Villa on Monday (today) over Onnoghen’s suspension.
Onnoghen was suspended on Friday by President Buhari based on an ex parte order granted by the Code of Conduct Tribunal.
He is facing six counts of false assets declaration filed against him by the Code of Conduct Bureau.
Buhari’s meeting with the APC governors will take place ahead of the Senate emergency resumption on Tuesday (tomorrow) when decisions are expected to be taken on Onnoghen’s suspension by the President.
The APC senators’ meeting with the President, it was gathered, would take a position to counter the expected condemnation of the CJN’s suspension by the members of the opposition in the Senate on Tuesday.
However, the meeting which is going to hold at the Banquet Hall is being tagged as a dinner. Invitations to the meeting were signed by the Director General of the APC Presidential Campaign Organisation, who is also the Minister of Transportation, Mr Rotimi Amaechi.
A source close to the organizers of the meeting told urban express news correspondent that the national leadership of the APC would also attend the meeting
He said apart from the senators and the APC leaders, some APC governors had also been invited to the meeting.
