In a statement issued in Lokoja on Thursday, Miliki called on the people of Kogi West senatorial district to pay more attention to the Senator as his pronouncement represent anti-democratic forces.

He called on Adeyemi to desist from anti-democratic utterance forthwith.

“Legislators at all levels – globally, nationally and locally – are products of laws and constitutionalism. The democratic process that usher in all elected representatives in Nigeria, of both the executive and legislators are very fundamental.

“It is worrisome and condemnable for an elected Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, who is expected to make laws for the good governance of the Nnation, to be comparing Military administration to democracy under any guise, frustration and for whatever reasons.

“All Senators must always be living examples and must have sound moral value. How could someone who is a beneficiary of the democratic process like Senator Smart Adeyemi, a third timer to the Senate, make such undemocratic comparison? It is uncalled for!

“We call on Senator Smart Adeyemi to retract such undemocratic statement in the interest of the rule of law, constitutionalism and democratic principles.

“Senator Smart Adeyemi needs to live and represent the democratic values of the people of Kogi West Senatorial District which he was voted to represent, as he was not sent there by himself but with the mandate of the good people of Kogi West. He must be seen and heard to be doing everything to promote the respect and dignity of Kogi West senatorial district who sent him to represent them,” he said.
