Falae says DSS ‘raped our constitution’ by invading NASS, tells Nigerians what to do

The National Chairman of the Social Democratic Party, SDP, Olu Falae on Thursday described the siege to the National Assembly by operatives of the Department of State Services, DSS, as a “rape on our constitution”.
Falae, who make this remark while warning that those involved in the “illegality” should be identified and punished, urged Nigerians to reject the All Progressives Congress, APC, during the 2019 elections.

Speaking in Lokoja, the Kogi State capital, Falae said the rejection should start with the Lokoja/Kogi federal constituency bye-election scheduled for Saturday, describing the APC as a den of illegality.

On the unseating of a member of the Kogi Assembly over defection, he said, “The law says you can change party if your party is in crisis and factions have developed within the party. His party was APC but today we have APC and R-APC, two factions, the conditions for defection legitimately have been fulfilled, he exercised his right to leave a party in factions and joined SDP, so it is illegal, criminal and unconstitutional for the house of assembly to declare the seat vacant, we shall take them to court and the court will deal with them.

“I want to urge the people to turn away from the APC, that is the new party that all Nigerians are looking up to safe them from corruption, incompetence and anarchy. A government ruled for 15 years, they messed up, we all clamoured for change, APC and they are far worse than PDP, so we urge Nigerians to turn to SDP, a party that has a wonderful manifesto and leaders who are unimpeachable, so the people of Kogi should start on Saturday and the whole Nigerians will follow.”

On the siege to the National Assembly, Falae said, “The security force interfering with the functioning of the legislature is committing an illegality, a rape of our constitution, those involved should be arrested and dealt with according to law because is a threat to our democracy.”
