Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Uche Secondus
Secondus alleged that the President planned the Tuesday siege on the National Assembly from there using the officials of the State Security Service (SSS)
The United Kingdom had earlier call on the Nigerian authority to respect the rules of law and the Democratic Principles of the country.
The country was thrown into chaos on Tuesday when lawmakers and journalists were prevented from entering the National Assembly.
The mission, according to Senator Mathew Urhoghide who spoke with NAIJA CENTER NEWS was to unseat the Senate President, Bukola Saraki who defected to the Peoples Democratic Party, days ago.
The siege was lifted hours after the DSS Boss, Mr. Lawal Daura was fired by the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo
Secondus in his statement on Tuesday afternoon called on the UK not to allow its country to be used as a safe haven to truncate democracy.
The National Chairman said President Buhari was hiding in the country to undermine democracy in Nigeria.
The Statement was signed by his media aide, Ike Abonyi. Secondus alleged that the plan to unseat and cause arrest at the National Assembly was hatched when Akpabio visited the President in London on Saturday.
NAIJA CENTER NEWS had reported that Akpabio will formally join the APC on Thursday but has tendered his resignation as the Senate Minority Leader.
The National Chairman, however, commended Acting President Yemi Osinabjo for sacking the DSS boss, Daura.
Osinbajo had said the siege was unauthorized by the Presidency.
Mr Secondus said.: “When an executive arm in democratic setting muscles up other arms of government, the correct name for such administration is autocracy and dictatorship,”
“Nigerians and the international community have continuously watched this administration, harass and intimidate the legislature and judiciary as well as others in opposition in their bid to create a dictatorial regime.
“All over the World, the parliament is the bastion of democracy and rule of law anybody not willing to align himself to them is trying to create anarchy in the land,” he said.
The opposition leader then called on President Buhari to resign.
“We are aware that when a regime exhausts idea of what to do and loses the legitimacy that brought it to power, it could be dangerous like a bull in China shop. But truth is that Nigeria will survive this regime and laugh last.”
