The national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday led a protest to the United States Embassy and the British High Commission where the party handed two separate petitions to officials of the embassies.
The protests that started from the PDP alternate office in Maitama culminated at the US Embassy and the British High Commission both located at the Diplomatic Avenue in the Central Business Centre in Abuja.
Speaking with newsmen after submitting two separate petitions to the United States Embassy and the British High Commission, the National Chairman of PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, said that President Muhammadu Buhari has lost control of activities in the country and as such, he can no longer ensure the protection of lives and property in the country.
He also said that the judiciary was being caged as it is no longer independent
While speaking to reporters after submitting the petition to the US Embassy, Secondus said, “Today, we are at the America Embassy. We have just submitted our petition on behalf of the leadership of the PDP and the poor masses of our country. The need for the international community to come to the assistance of our dear country because Nigeria is a member of comity of nations. Nigeria is not an island. It is a member of the United Nations. When things go wrong, other international community can come to advise, that is why we are here. The continent of our petition is for other international community should come to the aid of Nigeria and to advise our government to obey the rule of law especially as it relates to the NASS and the judiciary.
“Over the past few weeks, we have passed through very difficult and challenging times. The case in question is Imo State. We have submitted our petition. We have addressed a press conference
