The senator representing Kaduna Central District on the platform of All Progressives Congress (APC), Shehu Sani, on Wednesday, faulted President Muhammadu Buhari over his recurrent use of security agencies to intimidate members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
You will recall that few days ago, operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS), raided the Ekiti House of Assembly and arrested four of its members.
The speaker of the assembly, Kola Oluwawole, had described the incident as “the clandestine plot by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC) federal government to destabilise the Ekiti state government”.
You will also recall that not less than 6 months ago, operatives of the DSS, headed by Lawan Daura, had invaded the Government House of Akwa-Ibom and ransacked the entire Government House.
In a swift reaction to the Akwa Ibom raid, the PDP in a statement signed by its Deputy National Chairman, Uche Secondus, had said that the Buhari- led government was planning to take over all the states controlled by PDP by force.
He said, “This nation belongs to all, to both PDP and APC a situation where consistently, the DSS has assaulted states controlled by PDP, the international community should be aware of what is going on. Is this democracy? Is this how PDP ruled in 16 years? Enough is enough.”
However, following the latest raid, senator Sani, who is also the Vice Chairman, Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs, Shehu Sani, via his twitter handle condemned the actions of the APC government.
Sani said, “The use of security agencies to invade state assemblies is unacceptable under any guise; this reflects my position and that of the senate.”
