Our leaders receive ‘unfair’ treatment – PDP

Bitrus Kozah, Abuja.

The main opposition party in Nigeria, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has decried what it referred to as “oppressive and unfair treatments against its party leaders” by the All Progressives Congress led government.

Following the arrest of the National Deputy Chairman of the PDP, Uche Secondus by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the party in a statement, signed by its National Legal Adviser, Mr. Victor Kwon, claimed that the arrest and detention of its party members were part of the grand script by the APC-led Government to decimate the opposition.

Mr. Kwon also alleged that there were plans by the APC led Government “to arrest and detain the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, Senate Minority Leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio and other leaders of the party on imaginary charges”.

He said the APC led government should not mock democratic practice by humiliating the PDP.
