Don't force your interest on Nigerians – Secondus advises Buhari

Prince Uche Secondus
The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, @Prince Uche Secondus has again advised President Muhammadu Buhari not to subjugate his interest as a national interest and his personal political security as national security.

He said this on Tuesday while restating his condemnation of President Muhammadu Buhari’s statement at the opening ceremony of the Annual General Conference of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) on Monday.

The President, in his speech, urged lawyers to put national security over and above the rule of law.

But Secondus said that the center of every national interest was contained in the constitution and that the rule of law of the nation and democracy is anchored on them.

He said this at the national campaign office (Legacy House) in Maitama, Abuja.

Secondus warned that President Buhari’s interpretation of national interest and national security should be disregarded because it’s all aimed at enabling him create order 6 to appropriate legislative and judicial functions and operative a full blown dictatorship.

Secondus challenged the President to append his signature on the Electoral Act as amended if he truly believes in conducting a free, fair and credible election.
He wondered why the President is foot dragging in signing the new electoral act when it’s obvious that it would deepen our electoral system and ensure faster growth of our democracy.
