Founder of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC), Dr. Frederick Fasehun on Wednesday said President Muhammadu Buhari is “an unrepetant dictator”.
Fasehun said this while speaking to journalist on the recent arrest of judges by the Department of State Security (DSS) nationwide.
He said the Federal Government has continued to go against court rulings and undermine the judiciary.
He said the invasion of the judges’ homes was a “gross and blatant violation of rule of law, the Nigerian constitution and common sense.”
He regarded the President as “the worst threat to our nation’s democracy.”
He said, “These current events have vindicated my stance when I expressed scepticism on the Buhari presidential candidacy in 2015.
“When, in the build-up to the elections, his spin doctors told the world that General Buhari was a born-again democrat, we warned Nigerians that this leopard cannot change his spots. Buhari has the trappings of an unrepentant dictator.
“We demand that the National Assembly, as part of its oversight functions, summon the Director-General of the DSS for questioning and sanctioning.
“Government must stop forthwith the media trial of supposed suspects investigated or apprehended by security agencies to allow for the constitutionally-guaranteed principles of fair hearing, due process and rule of law in the law courts.
“Under President Buhari, the DSS, the police and the EFCC must regain and maintain their statutory responsibilities of intelligence gathering and security maintenance, instead of turning into instruments for silencing the opposition.”
