The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described President Muhammadu Buhari’s signing the asset seizure Executive Order as reprehensible and dangerous step towards fascism.
It also said it is in total disregard to the provisions of the 1999 constitution.
The party made this known in a statement Friday ‎by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan.
According to the PDP Nigerian constitution does not, under any section, confer such “fascist powers” on the President in a democracy.
It described President Buhari’s unilateral Executive Order as a travesty of justice and rule of law and vehemently seeks to hijack and usurp the powers of both the legislature and the courts and vest it on himself so that he can use same at will, as a political instrument, to haunt, traumatize, harass and victimize perceived political opponents.
The statement noted that the President also wants to change Nigeria’s democratic governance to a military regime.
