The All Progressives Congress (APC) has condemned in strongest terms, Tuesday’s unfortunate invasion of the National Assembly by security forces.
A statement signed by its Ag. National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Yekini Nabena, expressed this.
“Our Party wholly dissociates itself from any act of brigandage and affront on the sacred symbols of our budding democracy.
“Our Party remains a law abiding political organisation and advises every constituent part to abide by the tenets of our constitution and our democracy,” it said.
The party explained that whilst their contention with the leadership of the National Assembly as currently constituted is a matter of public record, they still believe that the legislature as an independent arm of government must be allowed free reign for vibrant contestation of ideas and values amongst its members within the context of their constitutional mandate and for the benefit of the Nigerian people.
“We call for a more harmonious working relationship between the various Arms of Government in the general interest of the country.”
