- Challenges Buhari to accommodate dissenting views
National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Prince Uche Secondus has charged the Directorate of State Security Service (DSS) to stop harassing the former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Dr Obadiah Mailafia.
Prince Secondus told the secret police organization to try and dispose themselves to the mood of the time in a democratic dispensation and learn to accommodate dissenting views on issues.
The main opposition leader said that the continuous invitation of the former CBN topnotch is disrespectful of his status and unmindful of his contributions to the development of this country .
He said in a statement from his media office on Tuesday that the good ingredients of democracy is that citizens must be allowed to have their say even when they cannot have their way on any issue.
Prince Secondus said the he finds it repugnant continued harassment of somebody who served this country at such high level just because he has a view different from that of the government on an issue.
The PDP boss noted that the DSS in traumatizing Dr Mailafia is trying to intimidate the people from airing their views on issues but warned that, no amount of pressure will deter the people from expressing their feeling under a government that has clearly lost focus and direction.
