2019: Buhari, APC building more prisons for PDP members – Secondus

The President Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress, APC, government has been accused of building more prisons to accommodate members of the main opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
The newly elected National Chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus who said this, warned that Buhari and his party members may eventually end up in those prisons.
The PDP also alleged that the government was planning to descend on PDP members in 2018.
This was part of Secondus’ statement in Abuja at the opening of a two-day retreat for members of the newly elected National Working Committee of the party.
He said, “We learnt that they are building more prisons. Let them go ahead and build more . They will be the one to stay there.
“We learnt that they are coming after our members in January. Let them continue. How many people will they put in jail?”
The chairman stated that it was wrong to assume that the PDP was not ready to fight corruption, stressing that the regime of former President Olusegun Obasanjo established institutions that he said “are currently waging a war against graft in the country.”
The PDP chairman added that the former President did not spare members of the PDP then, unlike now when he alleged that the ruling party “protects its members.”
“We stabilised the structure to fight corruption. Obasanjo, a PDP President, started the fight against corruption.
“He fought our members. But unlike now, no matter how corrupt you are, if you don’t want to be arrested, just defect to the APC,”‎ he said.
