Oh Oh! PDP Chairman Uche Secondus Says There Might Be No Elections In 2023

The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Uche Secondus has revealed why he thinks there might not be any elections comes 2023. He shared that the Nigerian Military has been interfering in the country’s elections and this is impeding democracy. He doubted there would be any election in 2023 when he said: ‘military continues in its habit of getting involved in elections as they were involved during the February 23 presidential and National Assembly elections.’ This he shared at the press conference held in Abuja yesterday March 4th. He said: “On February 23, 2019, how will history judge you (Buhari)? How will the next generation judge you? In fact, there may not be election in 2023, it may just be announcement because if you have the military on your side, you do not need the people, you do not need to campaign. All you need to do is to put the figure on election day and announce. Is that what is going to happen again on March 9?” He added that: “We appeal to the authorities especially our professional military men and women that this has never happened before. They must have a rethink. If they want to participate in politics, they are free to do so. I think it happened in Thailand where the military and civilians can contest and share offices. If our constitution is changed to contain that, it is a happy development but whereas the constitution says they are not part and parcel of the process, is that what is going to happen on March 9? “The son-in-law to our presidential candidate was arrested without justification; he has been detained and has not been released. His personal lawyer has been detained and the leaders of our country are keeping quiet; the Peace Committee is keeping quiet. Everyone here is keeping quiet.”Photo Credit: Getty
