Secondus spoke against the backdrop of the viral video where Gambari and Oshiomhole were discussing the rising incidence of violence in the run up to the September 19 Edo State governorship election.
At a media briefing in Abuja on Thursday, the PDP chairman said with the action of the duo, the threat to the nation’s democracy was becoming more and more real by the day.
Secondus said: “The PDP has watched with utmost concern the developing situation in Edo State. We have watched the growing desperation of the APC, and the Presidency to capture Edo State in the September 19 governorship election at all cost.
“We are deeply saddened that under the watch of an elected President, Muhammadu Buhari, who is a huge beneficiary of democracy, the nation’s highest seat of power is being used for the hatching of plans to undermine democracy.”
