The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has raised alarm over plans by President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has raised alarm over plans by President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) to close accounts belonging to the party and its stakeholders.
The Party disclosed this in a statement signed by Its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan on Tuesday.
The party accused APC of procuring frivolous court orders from compromised judicial officers against accounts belonging to PDP and critical stakeholders, perceived to be against the President’s re-election bid.
Ologbondiyan noted that the ruling party plans to use the court order to deprive its candidates access to funds for campaigns against 2019 election.
The statement read in part: “The PDP is already aware of how instructions have been given to certain agencies of government to trail and throw up fabrications in order to create an impression of financial infractions around the said accounts.
“Already, accounts belonging to critical stakeholders are being frisked with a view to have them liquidated ahead of the general elections.
“It is clear that the only reason for this is to ensure that our party and candidates are deprived of access to funds for campaigns, but the APC and the Buhari Presidency fail to realize that the 2019 election is now a battle between them and Nigerians, who are the bastion of the PDP.
“Nigerians have since taken over the saddle for the quest to rid the nation of this incompetent, vicious and vengeful administration, for which they are now freely making contributions and sacrifices.
“They have collectively resolved to vote out President Buhari and not even the APC’s on-going vote-buying strategy and intimidation can scuttle that resolve.”
