Apapa LP-Faction Urges Military, Police, DSS To Arrest Agitators Of Interim Government
By Khalid Idris Doya
The Bashiru Lamidi Apapa faction of the Labour Party has called on the Military, Inspector General of Police (IGP), Usman Alkali Baba and the DSS to arrest Peter Obi the presidential candidate of the Labour Party and any other person in for moving and clamouring to stop the transition process and the inauguration of president-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu on May 29 2023.
“If anyone calls for an interim administration including Peter Obi, they should be arrested. For him or any other person calling for such, we are calling on the IGP to immediately arrest them because nobody is above the law of the land.”
National Publicity Secretary of the Apapa Faction, Abayomi Arabambi disclosed this to journalists, after the FCT High Court re-affirmed Lamidi Apapa as acting chairman.
Arabambi also stated that if the party’s legal team at the election petition Tribunal in Abuja failed to meet Lamidi Apapa and brief him on the legal proceeding within 48 hours they would appoint new lawyers to take over the labour party case at the tribunal.
He opined that those who are calling for interim administration where there is a President-elect is “not a true ‘Obedient’ but ‘Obidiots’ because nobody who is a genuine politician will want to see the country plunged into crisis”
He further said that every Nigerian must be subjected to the rule of law and must be made to understand that in whatever he or she does, the peace of Nigeria must come first.
Abayomi Arabambi said, “You cannot plunge Nigeria into war and say that you want to rule the country. We in the Labour Party are saying capital ‘no’ to that. We don’t understand the call by Peter Obi that the President-elect, Sen Bola Ahmed Tinubu should not be sworn in on May 29th. As far as we are concerned, the LP came third in that election behind the PDP.”
Abayomi Arabambi added, “The irony is that today, the LP is not challenging the PDP that came second, that means that we are saying that the votes allocated to PDP is correct in the eyes of the law, but, the PDP that Peter Obi is defending is challenging the validity of the election that brought Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the President-elect.”
“No, the votes you have, we are not challenging it because it is in accordance with what we believe in, that was why Peter Obi with Julius Abure deliberately excluded the PDP after the shenanigans with them and now challenging the results of the APC.”
“So, how on earth will he not cover his face in shame for excluding the PDP, why must he not challenge the second person but challenge the first person,” he said.
The factional National Publicity Secretary stressed that no matter the status of any individual, he or she is not above the laws of the country and must be treated as such saying that the security agencies in the country must act in order to curb all such moves in the bud.
