Travel Ban On Wike, Fayose Capable Of Starting Civil War – PDP
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Osun State chapter, has warned President Muhammadu Buhari against acts capable of plunging the country into a civil war. According to the party, tampering with the constitutionally guaranteed immunity of governors would spell doom for the country.
In a statement issued in Osogbo by its Director of Research, Publicity and Strategy, Prince Diran Odeyemi, the PDP urged the President to immediately jettison alleged plans to impose travel ban on governors of Rivers and Ekiti states – Nyesom Wike and Ayo Fayose, respectively.
“Since the news broke of plans by Buhari to ban PDP governors Ayo Fayose and Nyesom Wike from travelling using Department of State Security, DSS, as threat, images of events of the past years have kept on reappearing,” the statement by the PDP said in part.
“We don’t want anything that can truncate this democracy. Attempt to strip two PDP governors of their immunity is capable of enacting civil war.”
The party then called on all past leaders to prevail on President Buhari to shelve the idea to save the country of needless tension and constitutional crises.
