THE National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Prince Uche Secondus on Monday called for an international inquest into the senseless and mindless killings across the country to ascertain really those behind it.
Prince Secondus said that the call has become necessary following the lacklustre response of the government to the heinous crime and some attempts by agents of the government to divert the attention of the public away from the issue.
Speaking while receiving one of the Presidential aspirants in the party, Alhaji Tanimu Turaki at the National Secretariat of the party, Prince Secondus called on the international community to show interest and help halt the bloodletting in the country.
Prince Secondus said that intelligence available to the party showed that the All Progressives Congress, APC was planning to rig the July 14 gubernatorial election in Ekiti state but warned that it would amount to putting fire in the land.
According to him, “Thwart the will of Ekiti people and put unquenchable fire in the country. Let me warn the INEC Chairman Prof Yakubu and Amina Zakari the National Commissioner in charge of operations in the electoral commission to be careful with any agenda they have that is against the will of the people of Ekiti”.
He told the aspirant that the PDP as a platform had been rebranded, repositioned and ready to regain power and rescue Nigeria from the terrible governance of the APC.
Prince Secondus noted that because the APC administration had nothing really to offer they have resorted to brute force, intimidation and harassment of opponents.
According to him,”They are harassing, arresting and framing up people but they cannot arrest and kill everybody. We are ready for them
“Whether they like it or not, PDP will win Ekiti come July 14, because we are on the ground and have something to show, we will also go ahead to win Osun state in September and the general elections in February 2019″.
Speaking earlier, the Presidential aspirant Turaki who was the Minister of Special Duties in the last PDP administration had commended Prince Secondus for fulfilling his campaign promises of leading the party transparently where there would be inclusiveness, no impunity and imposition.
Turaki said that Secondus by the way he conducted Ekiti primaries had shown that he and his team were fantastic marketers for the party.
He also disclosed that he had visited all other Presidential aspirants in the race and promised to support whoever comes out victorious if not him
