Former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus has said that Nigeria’s democracy is in danger.

Secondus said further that the country’s democracy would crash if the conduct of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was not checked.

He made the comments via a statement issued on Thursday, November 10.

The statement reads:

Events surrounding the electoral body since Prof Yakubu took over from Prof Attahiru Jega leaves one with no other conclusion than that it is not only incompetent but obviously a bias agency designed to dance the music of the ruling All Progressives Congress APC rather than that of Nigerians.

From Kogi, Bayelsa to Rivers, Imo and Edo states the conduct of this INEC has shown crass incompetence as it has failed glaringly to conduct a free, fair and credible election.

At every step on the way the commission has compromised its independence by conniving with agents of the APC to manipulate electoral process and undermine the will of the people.

The commission is being pushed about with impunity by the ruling APC that is a huge beneficiary of a sound and credible electoral process put in place by the PDP.

The failure of INEC to conduct credible poll all these while has far reaching implication in the sustenance of democracy in the country as well as ensuring national stability.

Finally, I call on all democratic watchers to stand up against this INEC that has shown clearly that its mission is to destroy this democracy by continuously thwarting the will of the people.
