ADC warns Buhari, APC against intimidation, threats



African Democratic Congress (ADC) has warned the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) against intimidating opposition parties and Nigerians with death threats, saying the government must adhere to its basic responsibility to protect lives during the polls, ‘not take lives.’

In a communiqué issued after its emergency meeting in Akwa, Anambra State yesterday, National Working Committee (NWC) of the party, while reviewing the events that led to the botched presidential and National Assembly elections on Saturday, said other party disagreed with President Muhammadu Buhari over the directives to security agencies to be ruthless to anyone who tries to snatch ballot boxes in the forthcoming elections.

The communiqué, signed by the National Chairman and Secretary of the party, Chief Ralphs Nwosu and Alhaji Said Abdullahi respectively, read in part, “The meeting reviewed the earlier positions taken in our press release, which demanded that President Buhari and the INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, should resign. After reviewing the explanations given by the commission for the postponement, and in view of results of independent investigations on what went on behind the scenes, ADC has come to the conclusion that agents of the government or fifth columnists within the APC administration were responsible for the logistics failure.
