by ‘Jola Sotubo

Despite maintaining a strong and united front following the recent challenges that have beset them, things only seem to be getting worse for the Kawu Baraje–led faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
This is following revelations that the national secretariat of the “New PDP” has been marked for demolition by the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA).
The building located at Number 4, Oyi River Crescent in the Maitama area of the Federal Capital Territory was first of all closed off by the FCTA preventing the Baraje faction from being able to hold meetings there. Now the authority is set to demolish the building.
The Nation reports:

The building located at , was sealed off almost immediately after it emerged that the faction would use the place.

They subsequently moved their activities to the Adamawa State Lodge along Katsina Ala Street in Maitama District of Abuja.

That place was also was sealed off, with the FCTA claiming that the area is not for commercial activities.

The FCTA’s inscription on red ink was visible on the wall and gate of the building but there is less security unlike when the place was sealed off.

The National Publicity Secretary of the Abubakar Baraje faction, Chief Chukwuemeka Eze confirmed to our correspondent on the telephone last night that the faction was aware of the move to demolish the property.

Eze said: ”We are aware of it. Nigerians should prepare for the worst because we have cried out enough. They are telling us that we are not entitled to own property in our own fatherland. They want to prove to the world that they are more Nigerians than the rest of us.

“This is a property with all the necessary documents duly certified by the approving authority. They were calling us names when we cried out that these people never meant well for the country and its people.

“ Now they have left no one in doubt that they are intolerant of opposing views. Nigerians can now see what we meant when we said that these people are no democrats. We certainly need prayers at this point in our nation’s history. We are pleading with the Nigerian people to be praying for us. We need serious prayers”.
