The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and President Muhammadu Buhari of muzzling key democratic institutions in the country.
The National Chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus stated this at the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting in Abuja on Monday.
“When President Buhari and his party began the process of muzzling the other arms of government, our party cried out and alerted the nation and indeed the international community of the brewing dictatorship.
“Here we are watching helplessly as the legislature and the judiciary are put right in the pocket of the executive. An anomaly in a democracy that makes nonsense of the separation of powers that is beautifully enshrined in the rule book to check the excesses of each arm of the government.
“We are witnesses to the emerging dictatorial tendencies in our dear country. As we all can see, a dictator is not just on the way but has arrived the scene already,” Secondus decried.
