PDP Rejects Buhari’s Executive Order No 6, Says It’s Descent To Fascism

PDP Rejects Buhari’s Executive Order No 6, Says It’s Descent To Fascism

The party said this in a statement by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan.

The Peoples Democratic Party has strongly condemned as illegal, unconstitutional, reprehensible and a dangerous step towards a descent to fascism the asset seizure Executive Order imposed by President Muhammadu Buhari “in total disregard to the provisions of 1999 constitution”.

The party said this in a statement by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan.

It said: “The party alerts that the Nigerian constitution does not, under any section, confer such fascist powers on the President under our democracy and there can be no legitimate latitude of interpretation placed on sections 5 and 15 (5) of the 1999 Constitution cited as justifications for this draconian executive order, that can excuse it.

“Therefore, President Buhari’s unilateral Executive Order is a travesty of justice and rule of law, as it vehemently seeks to hijack and usurp the powers of both the legislature and the courts and vest it on himself so that he can use same at will, as a political instrument, to haunt, traumatize, harass and victimize perceived political opponents.

“In order words, Mr. President wants to change our democratic governance to a military regime, in line with his lamentation, two days ago, that the fight against corruption will be better under a military regime than under a democracy.

“It is instructive to emphasize that the PDP is not in anyway opposed to the fight against corruption. Rather, the party holds that the imposition of this Executive Order, which is radically at variance with the provisions of the constitution, is totally unacceptable.
