Though Shettima did not elaborate on why the PDP should be proscribed, he said that if Buhari had not won the 2015 presidential election, Nigeria would have gone into extinction.

He noted that the PDP-led administration was at the verge of destroying the basic component that bonded Nigeria, adding that Buhari’s victory saved the country.

“Had President Buhari not win the election in 2015, Nigeria would have gone into extinction and as it is now, the PDP need to be proscribed.
