The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) alerts of a sinister plot by the All
Progressives Congress (APC) and certain agents of the Buhari Presidency
to load ammunition into vehicles painted in PDP colours and the names of
our candidates, particularly our Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar,
the Senate President, Bukola Saraki as well as Senator Dino Melaye and
use them to attack Nigerians and orchestrate violence ahead of the
Intelligence at our disposal shows that the APC has contracted some
criminal elements to use the vehicles to cause mayhem and pandemonium by
firing into gatherings in various parts of the country, after which the
ruling party and the agents of Buhari Presidency will blame the attacks
on our party and candidates.
The PDP condemns this heinous plot as an extreme act of desperation by
the APC in their despondency, after being rejected by the people.
We want all Nigerians to note that the PDP is a party of goodwill and
our rallies have demonstrated that we are a people of peace. Our
objectives and goals, as laid down by our founding fathers, demonstrate
unity, national cohesion and economic prosperity for our nation.
This is the path we have continued to toe in our campaigns, in spite of
provocations by the APC and the Buhari Presidency.
The PDP is therefore, alerting Nigerians to take serious note of this
plot by the APC, which is tailored to smear the image of our party and
candidates, as well as divert public attention from their acts and
threats of violence ahead of the 2019 general election.
The PDP urges all Nigerians to continue to be at alert and wary of the
APC in its acts of desperation against the resolution by the people to
end the Buhari administration and elect a new leadership under Atiku
Abubakar, to return good governance, economic prosperity and political
tranquility to our nation, come February 16, 2019.
