The Peoples Democratic Party said it had held a meeting with the United States Consul General, Ms Claire Pierangelo, in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, and reported the actions of the All Progressives Congress government.
The party’s National Deputy Chairman, Yemi Akinhanmi, disclosed this on Tuesday while speaking with journalists in Abeokuta.
He said the PDP believed that unless the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), was prevailed upon to sign the Electoral Act Amendment Bill into law; democracy might continue to be in danger.
The PDP chief, who accused the Independent National Electoral Commission and the judiciary of compromise, declared that the activities of the APC-led government had drawn democracy in Nigeria backward.
He said, “The only way forward in this country is that the President should be prevailed upon and let him sign the Electoral Act Amendment Bill into law.
“The bill has been on the table of the President for over four years and it should be signed and as well monitor our democracy because for democracy to thrive in the entire black race, it must be monitored in Nigeria, otherwise, the coming generation will not hear of democracy.
“We have told the Consular General how the PDP has advanced democracy in Nigeria in 16 years. We told her how we took democracy from the grass to the top.”
