The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) has said it had uncovered another plot by the All Progressive s Congress (APC) led federal government to undermine the National Assembly.
Imo Ugochinyere, CUPP spokesperson, on Monday, said the government was planning to file a suit to get an exparte order directing that one-third of the Senators/House members should open either chambers of the National Assembly.
A statement he signed on Tuesday said CUPP was informed that the plot also included the police inviting the leadership of the National Assembly before the “controversial ruling” and detain presiding officers to pave way for the unlawful change.
“Some of the security agencies will provide security cover for the coupists while a section of the media has been coopted to churn out news and justification for such evil plots”, he said.
“This kind of desperation by the outgoing APC and Presidency can only be likened to the last kicks of a dying horse which usually gives it the hope that it will salvage the head which is already off.
“The ship of the APC is fast sinking and is obviously beyond redemption. Nigerians are daily convinced that the APC was a mistake made in 2015 and are also resolved that they are a mistake to be corrected in 2019.
“It is worrisome that the party entrusted by Nigerians to provide leadership, growth and development for the country could in one plot compromise the judiciary, the legislature, the Police, the Department of State Services, the media and indeed all institutions of our democracy.
“In the coming days, Nigerians and indeed all lovers of democracy world over are hereby placed on alert to watch out for the unfolding of this plot and call on the Presidency and the APC not to destroy our democracy before they leave office in eight months as Nigerians have rejected them and cannot wait to send them packing in the next general elections.
“We call on the international community to place key members of the APC led Federal government on watchlist and ensure they have no hiding place anywhere in the world should anything happen to our democracy.”
