December 2, 2014 – The Lagos State Chapter of the All Progressives
Congress has alerted the nation once again that impunity and brigandage is fast assuming a way of life in Nigeria adding that unless security agencies are called to order now they may inflict maximum damage to our hard earned democracy.
In a release signed by the State Publicity Secretary, Mr Joe Igbokwe the Party says “that despite the public outcry and opprobrium that followed Saturday November 22 invasion of APC Data Centre in Lagos and a Court order asking DSS to release those arrested, 40 DSS officers returned yesterday night to further vandalize the office and took away 30 bags containing vital documents.
“This frightening and fragrant display of impunity, brute force and disobedience of Court order portends grave danger to our now fragile polity and it may brutally affect the 2015 General elections if the ruling party, police or DSS are not called to order”
“We are still at a loss that more than two weeks after the first invasion, DSS has not told the world what its findings are, why it is still detaining workers of the Data Centre, and why it is still keeping the APC computers and vital documents.”
“This desperation and confusion that is now the hallmark of the ruling party, PDP and their agents in uniform has been long expected and we know that this party cannot go down without a fight”
“APC has come a long way, the party has walked a long road, faced many challenges, obstacles and scaled many walls but it is not over until it is over. This cup will pass away and Nigeria will be liberated from the choking grip of PDP”
Lagos APC appeals to its teeming supporters to remain calm and resolute in the face of these provocations. We shall overcome. We will defeat impunity. We will defeat political corruption. We will defeat abuse of power and political brigandage. We will liberate Nigeria in the fullness of time. When a drowning man is holding on to something he may never let go until his hands are cut off”
