PDP group distances self from plot to truncate Nigeria's democracy

- A political group has denied claims that it is part of the plot to truncate Nigeria's democracy

- The PDP-NSV said it consider reckless statements directed at the federal government on the rising insecurity as unjustifiable

- The group also called on Nigeria's home and abroad to support President Muhammadu Buhari's administration in the fight against insurgency and other forms of insecurity

The Peoples Democratic Party National Solidarity Vanguard (PDP-NSV) has distanced itself from an alleged conspiracy or action geared towards truncating the nation's democracy.

The opposition group made its position known at a press conference on Tuesday, February 11, in Abuja.

Addressing some sentimental utterances by its members on sensitive national security issues, the national coordinator of the PDP-NSV, Shehu Sani, the group can never be part of co-conspirators in oblique plots against the dismemberment of Nigeria.

Sani said the PDP-NSV believes such undignified acts by some members bear semblance with the general suspicions that PDP is the masked force behind resurgent insecurity across Nigerian states.

He also called on members of the group to support President Muhammadu Buhari's administration in curbing insecurity across regions of the country.

Sani said the group consider these reckless statements directed at the federal government on security as unjustifiable, a deliberate venom and beyond the threshold of the expression of genuine concern about the predicament of Nigerians.

He said the PDP-NSV frowns at such barbaric acts of heartlessness and undisguised appetite or preference for violence and bloodshed in parts of the country in the guise of opposition politics.

Sani said: "Whilst the PDP as a major opposition party in Nigeria can disagree with Mr President on so many policies of his administration, we cannot, however, endorse any attempt to blackmail the President on his efforts on curbing insecurity."
