*Claims His Arrest And Detention’s Politicize
Senator representing Abia South, Enyinnaya Abaribe has challenged Nigerians to obtain their Permanent Voters Card (PVS) to vote out the ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC) from power ahead of the 2019 general elections.
Abaribe was recently released after been apprehended and detained by the Department of State Services (DSS) over claims of sponsoring of terrorism in the state.
He said Nigerians must wake up from their slumber and ensure the power of their votes count in 2019 elections.
“Where we are today in Nigeria, I can only make one recommendation to Nigerians. And that recommendation is: get your PVCs ready because we have to vote out this government.
“There is no other way we can do it because as you can see, this government is descending into tyranny.
“And when I was arrested and I was taken to my house for it to be searched, in the warrant of arrest for the search of my house, what they said was that I was a sponsor of terrorism.
“And I wanted to know subsequently how I would sponsor terrorism and they put there in bracket that I was aiding and sponsoring a proscribed organisation ‘IPOB’.
“And so, everybody in Nigeria knows that I signed the bail bond for Nnamdi Kanu of IPOB. And if signing the bail bond means that I am now a sponsor of IPOB, what it means also is that every Nigerian should be ready.
“And so, I believe that when people are challenged and confronted historically at defining moments for the nation like we have today, they will rise up to expectation”
