Presidency urges Nigerians to disregard one-party state claims

The Presidency has dismissed claims suggesting that President Bola Tinubu plans to establish a one-party state in Nigeria by appointing “loyalists” as Resident Electoral Commissioners (RECs).

Mr. Bayo Onanuga, the Special Adviser to the President on Information and Strategy, issued a statement titled “PDP, Atiku Raising False Alarm” to State House Correspondents on Monday, urging Nigerians to disregard such assertions.

Onanuga highlighted President Tinubu’s recognized democratic principles and commitment to the rule of law, citing his commendable service as a governor, which yielded substantial progress across various aspects of the state.

”This was responsible for the dominance of his political structure in Lagos and not for any undemocratic conduct, as Atiku Abubakar wants the public to believe.”

In separate statements, the Peoples Democratic Party and the spokesman of Atiku Abubakar has assaulted the integrity of the judiciary and made wild and libellous allegations against President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

The statement further read that in the wake of the poor run of some elected governors of the party at the appeal court, the PDP and former Vice President and his spokesman have become overtly desperate to hang their woes on President Tinubu and the judiciary, an important arm of government in Nigeria.
In blaming others, Atiku and his party have failed to demonstrate whether they had done any soul-searching before going public with their weighty, specious, reckless and irresponsible allegations.

“While we do not hold brief for the judiciary, we urge Nigerians to discountenance the malicious allegations by the PDP and its candidate that President Tinubu as governor of Lagos, silenced the opposition and corrupted the judiciary and that he is planning to foist a one-party state on the country by appointing “loyalists” as Resident Electoral Commissioners (RECs),” he stated.
