Minister of State, Labour and Employment, Mr Festus Keyamo (SAN), has called for the arrest and pros£cution of Labour Party’s presidential candidate Peter Obi and his running mate Datti Baba-Ahmed.
In a petition to the Department of State Services (DSS) on Thursday, March 23, Keyamo said Obi and Baba-Ahmed have been making incendiary comments and claims about the declaration of Bola Tinubu as president-elect by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
According to him, “These comments and claims are made, not just within the boundaries of exercising their rights to freedom of speech and the freedom to air their grievances publicly, but they have since crossed the line to call for the outright truncation of democracy by insisting on the adoption of other processes outside the contemplation of our Constitution.
In some cases, their privies have even called for the establishment of an Interim Government.
The latest of such are the comments made by Datti Baba-Ahmed on behalf of himself and Mr. Peter Obi on Channels TV on Wednesday, March 22, wherein he threatened that if the President-elect was sworn in on May 29, it would ‘signal the end of democracy’.
Posing as an accuser, a judge and a jury all by himself, he unilaterally declared the duly elected President-elect as ‘unconstitutional’ and, in a subliminal manner, thr£atened mayhem if the President-elect was sworn in on May 29.
I also have it on good authority that Mr. Peter Obi and Datti Baba-Ahmed have camped some youths in a popular hotel in Abuja with the sole aim of instructing them to push out inciting messages everyday on social media in order to cause p@nic and fear within the federation and to incite people to ri%t and social unrest.
