PDP To APC: Stopping Our Abuja Rally Wont Help You



The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has denounced the reversal of the application given it to host its national rally at the Old Parade Ground, Abuja as another indication of the death pangs of a dying horse.

Noting that it was shocked by the decision to reverse the approval after payment had been made and received, the party on Saturday vowed that it would go ahead to host the national rally before the February 16 Presidential election.

In a similar situation few days ago, the Kano State administration had ruled the Sani Abacha Stadium, Kano ineligible for the PDP rally due on Sunday on the note that it had contracted out the stadium for renovation but was forced by public opinion to reverse the decision. Sources revealed to that security concerns may have also compelled the Abdullahi Ganduje administration to change its mind as it emerged that the decision was about to lead to breakdown of security besides the fact that it also led to sympathies for the PDP.

Atiku to Buhari: This will not help you

Speaking at a press conference on Saturday, National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr. Kola Ologbondinyan lamented that after paying for the venue and getting assurance to use it that the All Progressives Congress, APC controlled administration in Abuja turned around to say that the Abuja chapter of the APC was also using it for the same day.

“For us in the PDP Presidential campaign organization, this is part of the last kicks of a dying horse, which the Buhari Presidency now represents. It is part of the plot by the frustrated President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC to drag the PDP and the people’s candidate to their low level of frustration in order to enmesh the coming election into crisis so as to achieve their self-succession bid.”

Continuing, the party said: “this latest assault against the people’s candidate is also borne out of direct ill-will and hatred against him by President Muhammadu Buhari as well as his handlers, who have sought all ways to drag him down, since they realized that Nigerians have reached a consensus on Atiku Abubakar, as the next President of our country.

“Atiku Abubakar, being a true democrat and statesman has decided to go with the people in their collective quest to rescue our nation from the vengeful, divisive, violent prone, insensitive, completely incompetent and inherently corrupt Buhari administration.”  

“From reports reaching us, it is not also out of place for the Presidency and the APC to use this measure to test the will of Nigerians as precursor to their rigging plots.

“We want to place on record, once again that any attempt to rig the February 16 election will be vehemently resisted by Nigerians, across board, who have reached a consensus to rescue their nation from the stranglehold of the Buhari Presidency.

“In any case, let it be known to President Buhari and the APC that the PDP and the people’s candidate will definitely hold our Presidential mega rally in Abuja irrespective of any further encumbrance they may attempt to foist.”
