PDP has described the demolition of the political home of the Saraki family by the Kwara state government as ”wicked” and a ”recipe for crisis”.
The Kwara state government in the early hours of today, carried out the demolition of the property that was popularly known as ” “Ile Arúgbó”. The government said the land used to erect the property was fraudulently acquired by the Saraki family.
The irony was that there was no court order for the purported demolition. Nigerians on Social Media described the incident as a personal VENDETTA and politics of BITTERNESS.
In a statement released this eveing, PDP described the demolition as wicked. Read the statement below
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) condemns in the strongest terms, the unwarranted and vindictive demolition of a property belonging to former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, by the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Kwara state government.
The PDP described the invasion and demolition as wicked, cowardly and a direct recipe for huge crisis in the state.
The party holds that it is clear that the action of the state government is borne out of hatred and political intolerance, in furtherance of the larger plot by the APC and its administration to intimidate, suppress, hound, crush and silence opposition and dissenting voices in our country, in the bid to foist a siege mentality on the citizenry.
The PDP dismisses the reasons being spewed by the APC administration for this New Year dastardly act as baseless, false and incongruous, as they fail to add up, to justify the ferocious invasion, harassment of citizens and demolition of the said property.
The demolition is a complete subversion of rule of law as the matter is already in court. The APC-led Kwara state government could not wait for the outcome of the court process apparently because it knows that it is pursuing an illegal agenda.
