PDP describes defecting lawmakers as heroes of democracy
The People’s Democratic Party PDP has described some of the defecting members of the National Assembly as heroes of democracy who chose not to remain quiet in the face of “flagrant disobedience of rules in the country.
“These heroes of democracy who have decided to move from the ruling party are unusual men. We need to honour them. Their decision is in defence of democracy.
“They cannot see the killings, the frame-ups, the unemployment and the kind of military democracy that cannot even be described, that they are foisting on us and keep quiet. If we are in the military government, we would know. Rule of law and court orders are no longer obeyed.
“It is going to be a very long walk to freedom. There is no longer freedom in Nigeria. No freedom of the press. If you tell them the truth, they say it is hate speech. When you tell them the whole truth, they say it is fake news,” he said.
