By Henry Umoru

ABUJA — Spokesperson of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Renaissance Group, Chief Chyna Iwuanyanwu, has raised alarm over alleged plans by some anti-democratic forces to turn Nigeria into a one-party state.

Iwuanyanwu1He also condemned in very strong terms, what he described as the despicable and reprehensible conduct of the Nigeria judiciary in scuttling the 2016 National Convention of the PDP.

In a statement, yesterday, in Abuja, Chief Iwuanyanwu urged Nigerians not to fold their arms and watch the liberty and freedom of Nigerians taken away by those who didn’t  wish the nation’s democracy well.

Iwuanyanwu, who was reacting to the crises that led to the abortion of the national convention in Port Harcourt, described the plethora of conflicting and contradicting judgments from the high courts as an indictment on the judiciary.

He said: “The PDP Renascence Group has condemned in strong terms, what it described as  the despicable and reprehensible conduct of the Nigerian judiciary in scuttling the 2016 National Conventions of the PDP.”

Iwuanyanwu,  who  reminded Nigerians of the enormous sacrifices made in  the struggle for democracy, however, described the on-going crises in PDP as a premeditated threat to democracy, even as he called on well-meaning Nigerian patriots, democrats,  the civil society and the media to act collectively against despotism, tyranny and feudalism.

According to him, it will amount to a dangerous miscalculation to narrow the crises to Sheriff.

He stated that the battle was against anti -democratic, anti-PDP forces, who are determined  to kill the PDP, the only political party that had the capacity to present a robust and constructive  opposition to the nightmare called the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Chief Chyna Iwuanyanwu commended   the Markarfi- led Caretaker Committee,   the BOT and the National Executive of the party for remaining steadfast in the   search for peace and respect for the rule of law.

He also hailed the delegates   for a peaceful conduct and demonstration of patriotism in handling the situation in Port Harcourt.

He said:  “ The Renaissance Group noted that never in the history of Nigeria has the people witnessed the kind of suffering, poverty and penury under any government.

‘’The President has declared that Nigeria is broke; The Minister of   Finance has confessed that the economy is in recession! and now the National   Chairman of APC has told Nigerians that they did not appreciate the magnitude of   the challenges before deceiving Nigerians with the false promises with which they   obtained the votes of Nigeria. He declared the 2015 Presidential Election as the   biggest Political fraud in the history of Nigeria.

“Nigerians are always determined to take our   destiny into our hands. He also stated that there can be no armour against the will   of God and the people.

‘’It is only when a woman marries twice that she can say who is a better husband,   Nigerians married PDP for 16years and   APC for less than two years and life has become so miserable and hopeless while   the economy has collapsed.”
