PRESS STATEMENT – 13/7/2019
The Director-General of Atikulated Agenda Worldwide, Chief Dr. Emeka Kalu has expressed shock at the News of the attack on the Witnesses of the People’s Democratic Party on their way to court from Zamfara State which made the court adjourn the case to Monday.
In a statement issued from his Abuja office signed by his Aide on Media and Publicity, Comr. Amos Kalu, Dr. Kalu berated the Buhari/APC-Led Administration for failing to provide adequate security for the protection of lives and properties of Nigerians, stating that security challenge under Buhari has been at its lowest ebb, as it has never been seen in the history of Nigeria since amalgamation.
“We are living in a critical time in the history of our dear nation where we can no longer sleep with our two eyes closed. We get attacked on the road, in the mall, at the airport, in National Assemblies, in the church, in the mall, in the mosques, virtually everywhere, yet it seems we no longer have any government in place.
This latest attack has X-rayed the level of failure of this administration in the area of security, vis-a-vis other sectors. “This attack I am sure is targeted at intimidating the determined opposition that has proved strong in their effort to retrieve the people’s mandate from the desperate few that are holding Nigeria down in penury, hunger, and insecurity.
“We want to assure them that no amount of intimidation and threat will deter us from pursuing our legitimate right of seeking justice through the court which is the last hope of the common man,” He said.
Further, Dr. Kalu said he is not surprised if the Judges and lawyers handling the case are getting life-threatening challenges unknown to Nigerians all so that a few greedy men will remain in power.
“This open attack on our witnesses should give us insight into what the Judges and Lawyers must be facing in the hands of these desperate power grabbers.
“I call on the Nigerian Police to investigate this matter and bring the perpetrators to book.
“I also call on the Judiciary to stand firm on their resolve to ensure that justice prevails by not succumbing to any threat coming from the desperate power grabbers who are hell-bent on making sure that Nigeria die in chaos” He admonished.
Meanwhile, He called on PDP and other stakeholders in this project to hold on and be strong in the face of these wanton anomalies because the party is close to victory for PDP and the entire masses of oppressed Nigerians which they represent their interest.
“Nobody will cajole us out of our rightful pursuit. The essence of these attacks is to scare the remaining witnesses who are still coming with overwhelming evidence that will further draw the sinking administration of Cabals.
“But we are not giving in to intimidation and/or blackmail that will derail our focus” He concludes.
