It said: “The South West PDP reviews with alarm the repressive policy of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration manifest in the deliberate clampdown on notable leaders of the opposition in the South Western part of the country, in most cases, without due process and therefore advise the President Buhari Administration on the need for observance of the rule of law in the country.

 “The zonal chapter of PDP reiterates the call for the restructuring of the country without further delay as a panacea for the continued peace, stability and progress of the country.

“The zonal chapter also calls for the implementation of measures that will ameliorate the suffering of the masses as the APC administration has dissipated most of its energy on anti-corruption crusade which unfortunately, seem to targeting at only the leaders of the opposition, particularly in the South West.”
