The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has reportedly filed charges against President Muhammadu Buhari and sued him over his directive to the  security agencies to deal  ruthlessly with ballot box snatchers during the general elections.

In a filed before the Federal High Court in Abuja, the PDP  asked the court to declare  the directive as unconstitutional, unlawful and void.

 

 

The party also sued the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Mohammed Bello, before a High Court in the FCT over the “gigantic broom” erected by the All Progressives near Abuja city gate.

The PDP urged the court to issue an order compelling the minister to investigate the allegations of intimidation and illegality that the structure may cause.

The party said this followed  the FCT administration’s  failure to take action against the broom,  which it said was an “improper structure”.

 

 

It would be recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari cautioned anyone intending to cause trouble at the polling unit during the rescheduled poll on February 23 to stay away from the ballot boxes or do it at the expense of his/her own life.

The president made the comment on Monday at an emergency caucus meeting of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abuja, while warning that anyone who foments trouble, especially by carrying ballot boxes, would be doing so at the “expense of his life.”

“I really gave the military and police order to be ruthless. Anybody who thinks he has enough influence in his locality to lead a body of thugs to snatch ballot boxes or disturbs the voting system, will do so at the expense of his own life.”

Buhari made the statement after reprimanding the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for postponing the general elections from February 16 to 23.

The president repeated that he gave INEC all necessary support to ensure a smooth exercise, but the electoral body still displayed “incompetence” and failed to let Nigerians go to the poll as originally scheduled.

Electoral chiefs cited widespread logistics mishaps for the “painful” postponement, and promised everything would be in order before the new date of February 23 for presidential and federal parliamentary elections. Statewide elections would now hold on March 9, from the initial March 2.
