The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Prince Uche Secondus has called for an international inquest into the senseless and mindless killings across the country to ascertain really those behind it.
Prince Secondus said that the call has become necessary following the lacklustre response of the government to the heinous crime and some attempts by agents of the government to divert attention of the public away from the issue.
Speaking while receiving one of the Presidential aspirants in the party, Alhaji Tanimu Turaki at the Wadata House National Secretariat of the party on Monday, Prince Secondus called on the international community to show interest and help halt the bloodletting in the country.
According to a statement from the National Chairman's media office signed by Ike Abonyi, Prince Secondus said that intelligence available to the party shows that the All Progressives Congress, APC is planning to rig the July 14 gubernatorial election in Ekiti state but warned that it would amount to putting fire in the land.
"Thwart the will of Ekiti people and put unquenchable fire in the country.
"Let me warn the INEC Chairman Prof Yakubu and Amina Zakari the National Commissioner in charge of operations in the electoral commission to be careful with any agenda they have that is against the will of the people of Ekiti.
He told the aspirant that the PDP as a platform is rebranded, repositioned and ready to regain power and rescue Nigeria from the terrible governance of the APC.
Prince Secondus noted that because the APC administration has nothing really to offer they have resorted to brute force, intimidation and harassment of opponents.
"They are harassing, arresting and framing up people but they cannot arrest and kill everybody. We are ready for them"
"Whether they like it or not, PDP will win Ekiti come July 14, because we are on ground and have something to show, we will also go ahead to win Osun state in September and the general elections in February 2019.
Earlier the Presidential aspirant Turaki a Senior Advocate of Nigeria SAN who was Minister of Special Duties in last PDP administration had commended Prince Secondus for fulfilling his campaign promises of leading the party transparently where there is inclusiveness, no impunity and imposition.
Turaki said that Secondus, by the way, he conducted Ekiti primaries has shown that he and his team are fantastic marketers for the party.
He also disclosed that he had visited all other Presidential aspirants in the race and promised to support whoever comes out victorious if not him.
Turaki was accompanied to Wadata House by top members of his campaign team led by the former Governor of Adamawa state Boni Haruna.
