FROM IGNATIUS OKPARA, Enugu
The Conference of Nigerian Political Parties (CNPP) after an emergency meeting on Thursday condemned in strong terms what it described as “the brigandage and rascality of the Nigeria Police Force as evidenced with the desecration of the National Assembly NASS today”.
It said in a statement “CNPP is yet to understand the motive behind the violence unleashed by the Nigeria Police Force, to Honourable Members of the House of Representatives, in utter violation of the core mandate of the Police to protect and defend the people and the laws of the land.
To this end, the organization therefore calls on President GoodLuck Jonathan to as a matter of urgency sack the Inspector General of police, Sulieman Abba
A press statement signed by its publicity secretary, Osita Okechukwu, made available to African Examiner in Enugu reads: We wish to warn those who wittingly and unwittingly discredit and abuse our hard won democracy, to desist forthwith from such ignoble act.
“For we had witnessed voter apathy in election after election showing clearly that there is Voter Unhappiness and Voter Disquiet; an ominous sign-post of anarchy, the unintended consequences which is better imagined than welcome.
“Consequently, His Excellency, President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, GCFR, in the collective interest of our dear country and fledgling democracy; should sack the Inspector General of the Police (IGP),Mr Suleiman Abba, so as to absolve himself from the insinuations gaining ground that the new IGP is his attack-dog.
