The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has informed the European Union that Nigerians are living in despotic times under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The PDP in a statement issued by its Deputy National Chairman, Elder Yemi Akinwonmi, stated that much in Abuja on Friday, when he received the European Union (EU) Election Mission.
According to him, the APC-led federal government has greatly eroded the country’s democracy.
Elder Akinwonmi also called for the intervention of the international community to save the country’s democracy, noting that if the alleged anti- democratic tendencies of the government are not checked, the next generation of Nigerians may not witness a democratic government.
“We are now living in a despotic environment. We are now living in time of strange changes. Nigeria is fast becoming a failed state. The international community should beam its searchlight on Nigeria. What is going on Nigeria must not go unchecked if you want democracy to survive,” Akinwonmi stated.
He also added that apart from endangering democracy in the country, has equally impoverished the people, noting that the government has weakened the economy so much that the naira is the weakest in the continent.
