'PDP letter to United Nations, preposterous'

The Senior Special Assistant to President, Media & Publicity, Mr. Garba Shehu has described the recent letter by the National Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Mr. Uche Secondus to the United Nations Secretary General accusing President Muhammadu Buhari of several allegations, as preposterous, reports ITRealms.

He also said the letter confirms the opposition party as a bad loser, desperate for another chance after they were kicked out for failing the nation and its people.

Reacting to the letter, Shehu said its “no less preposterous and comical,” for the opposition to accuse the Nigerian government of “destroying Nigeria’s democracy.”

Lamenting what he also called “PDP’s lecture on democracy and the rule of law” coming from a party with a tradition of undemocratic rule is a desperate attempt to pervert history and the course of justice. The sermon, is both trite and hollow, coming from a party with intolerance for dissent as its hallmark. A party that humiliated opposition parties and stunted their growth. This was the atmosphere that nurtured the birth of the All Progressives Congress (APC.)


The war against corruption, for which many more politicians may soon be docked, cannot be misrepresented as an attack on human rights and Mr. Secondus should not try to mislead the UN. 

"Nigerian politicians at all levels have been used to dispensing with state funds in whatever manner they please, and to have someone, an administration, finally saying, “No. It doesn’t matter how big or important you think you are; the law must come against you...” That is not something they are used to at all. For the PDP, as has now emerged, national security was the major source of their funding," he said.
