Military regime better than Buhari govt – Secondus

Uche Secondus, national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party
(PDP), says a military government is better than the current
administration led by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Speaking on Wednesday at a dinner to welcome those who left the All
Progressives Congress (APC), Secondus alleged that the ruling party
had foisted on the country "a kind of military democracy".

Senate President Bukola Saraki and Aminu Tambuwal, Governor of Sokoto,
are the latest notable politicians to defect to the PDP.

Secondus said those who left APC could not watch the country slide into crisis.

"They can not watch the country sliding into crisis as we have found
ourselves today – bloodletting, killings unabated. Government of
denial, government of frame-up, government of intimidation and
harassment, a government that believe in the feast of arms," Secondus
said.

"I thought that one of the critical elements of democracy is lobbying
and persuasion is the greatest weapon of a democrat or a politician.
We have seen in the past few years that the APC-led government have
foisted on this nation a kind of military democracy that cannot be
described. It is better for us to have full blown military.

"The institutions that are supposed to maintain law and order, like
the one we have witnessed as in the case of Ekiti and in the case of
Benue charged with the maintenance of law and order are the same
people who are breaking this law and order. No rule of law, court
orders are not obeyed we are getting deeper and deeper into crisis.

"These heroes of democracy who have decided to move from the ruling
party, very unusual to stand with the people, not only PDP, they are
standing with the majority of Nigerians. The need to honour them, they
are the heros of democracy. Their decision was in the defence of
democracy," he added.

The chairman said there was no longer freedom in the country.

"It is a long work to freedom. There is no longer in Nigeria. If you
tell them the truth they will tell you that it is hate speech," he
said.

"Tell them the honest truth they will say it is fake news."
