Don’t give up, PDP urges Nigerians

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has urged Nigerians not to give up in the genuine collective struggle to reinforce democratic governance in the country.

The party, in a statement by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan yesterday, said Nigerians should sustain the tempo despite alleged intimidation, harassment and rights violations by the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its federal government.

The statement reads, “The PDP, however, calls on Nigerians to remain alert and law-abiding during the planned June 12 Democracy Day anniversary and cautioned the APC to desist from its reported plots to use security forces and thugs to clamp down and unleash violence on citizens as witnessed in the #EndSARS protest.

“The party also cautioned the APC to perish its alleged plots to use hoodlums to hijack processions and introduce violence, after which it will blame innocent Nigerians as a basis for their planned clampdown.

“Our party urges all leaders across board to reflect on the essence of June 12 and take steps to ensure that the martyrs and heroes of democracy did not labour and die in vain.”
