The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Thursday accused the All Progressives Congress, APC, and the Presidency of “setting up plots” against its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
PDP NWC also warned that “no amount of fabrications, attempt at set-up as well as veiled and open threats” by the APC-led Federal Government can stop Abubakar from
reclaiming his mandate at the tribunal.
In a statement by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP rejected in its entirety, the declaration by the Buhari Presidency that Abubakar was “lucky to be walking free”, stressing that such is “inciting and brings to the fore the unwholesome intention of the APC-led administration against Atiku Abubakar for seeking to retrieve his stolen mandate at the court.”
The party stated that the “series of orchestrations against Atiku Abubakar and the PDP by agents of the Federal Government, officials of the Presidency and the Buhari Media Organization (BMO) expose a well-coordinated plot, which includes a resort to unfounded claims of links with a foreign lobby group, to attempt to frame Atiku Abubakar, cause tension and ultimately derail the recovery of the stolen mandate at the Presidential election tribunal.
“Such orchestration are also targeted at instilling fear, cause apprehension in the citizenry and create opening to further suppress genuine public opinion and the course of justice in the quest by Atiku Abubakar and the PDP to restore the will of the people.”
