The Social Democratic Party (SDP) has urged security agencies to maintain neutrality in the country ahead of the 2019 general elections.
The party in a statement signed by its spokesman Alhaji Alfa Mohammed, commended the courage of the service chiefs who stage a walkout from the launch of President Muhammadu Buhari’s ‘Next Level 2019’ campaign in Abuja on Sunday.
The party described APC campaign of next level as an official notice to take Nigerians to the next level of poverty, insecurity, unemployment, anguish, organised corruption and impunity which must be rejected by all.
Furthermore, the party described the action of the service chiefs as a necessary move to assure the citizens that they are not part of the unholy move to propel the nation further to the next level of the rots being experienced in the past three and half years of the current administration.
SDP enjoined the military and the rest of the security agencies to maintain their unbiased stance against the launch of ‘next level of rots’ that have characterised Buhari’s governments for nearly four years now.
This was as it urged Nigerians to save themselves from all the negativities that have been the hallmark of the Buhari goverment by embracing the SDP and massively voting out the ineptitude goverment out of power come 2019.
It would be recalled that during the launch of the Campaign Manual/Next Level Document which took place at the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, Abuja, hardly were they seated than they left the event unceremoniously, obviously on observing that the gathering was political.
“We commend the service chiefs for refusing to be associated with the launch of the Next Level of rots that have characterised our country since the beginning of the APC government.
“APC campaign of Next Level is a notice to take Nigerians to the next level of porverty, insecurity, unemployment, anguish, organised corruption and impunity that have been the hallmark of the Buhari Govt since inception.
“Nigerians are therefore enjoined to embrace SDP and vote out the non performing government.
“We therefore enjoin the military and the entire security agencies to maintain the noble stance of unbiased onlooker, and refrain from being part of the rigging plan of the APC which they have been test-running in most of the bye elections held across the country recently.
Without the collaboration or conspiracy of the security, APC will meet it’s Waterloo come 2019.” the statement reads in parts.
