APC Condemns Withdrawal Of Tambuwal Security Personnel:Says President Jonathan Lacks Better Understanding Of Democratic Ethos

The All Progressives Congress has called on President Goodluck Jonathan to show better understanding of democracy by immediately restoring the police security details withdrawn from the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal.

In a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, the party described the announcement of the withdrawal of the Speaker's security details by the Inspector General of Police as a usurpation of the role of the Judiciary by the Police.

The APC argued that the interpretation of Section sixty eight of the Constitution on which the Inspector General of Police anchored his action was currently before the courts for resolution.

The party said it rejected the meddling in the affairs of the Legislature especially given the resolution of President Jonathan and his close advisers at their meeting to ask the Deputy Speaker Emeka Ihedioha to unlawfully reconvene the House before the adjourned date.
