PDP Accuses Presidency Of Round-Tripping In N45m Nomination Form For Buhari

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the Buhari Presidency of
round-tripping the N45 million claimed to have been contributed by a
shadowy group to buy the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential
nomination form for President Muhammadu Buhari.

The party said President Buhari’s inability, as “Mr. Integrity”, to
explain the registration status, membership and source of funding of the
shadowy group exposes the charade in the latest failed endorsement

The PDP notes as laughable, that the Buhari Presidency does not realize
that such stunts have become out-worn and cannot sway opinion in a
country with citizens as enlightened as Nigerians.

Most Nigerians already know how some officials at the Buhari presidency,
made up of corrupt individuals, racketeers and certificate forgers,
hurriedly assembled the group and mobilised them with N45 million for
the APC presidential nomination form, which was hiked to scare away
other contestants.

How members of the group were settled for the stunt as well the issues
and disagreements that arose from the deal are also known to many

What Mr. President’s handlers are hiding from him is the fact that
Nigerians do not believe the falsehood that a set of individuals, facing
the challenges of abysmally low purchasing power, put together a
wholesome N45m to buy him a form.

Nigerians are still waiting for him to make public the proof of
registration, membership, list of individual contributors and amount
contributed by these shadowy  individual members.

We also challenge President Buhari to make public the official
correspondences of the 12 million members of the Rice Farmers
Association, members of the Fertilizer Producers Association and the
members of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association who, he
claimed, offered to buy nomination form for him.

Moreover, the PDP described as unpresidential, the outbursts credited to
President Buhari against those who left the APC noting that such was an
unwarranted attack on innocent Nigerians whose only offence is that they
chose to abandon his derelict sinking ship, APC.

Finally, the PDP counsels President Buhari to forget the idea of
painting himself as a lover of youths and asking for funds from them, as
his “lazy youth” comment and talking down on young persons not to
contest against him in the 2019 election, amply convey his disdain for
the Nigerian youths.
