PDP alleges Tinubu of plot to disrupt polls

The Atiku/Okowa Campaign Organization has accused the Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, of plotting to incite Nigerians in a bid to disrupt the forthcoming general elections.   

The  PDP Campaign also alleged  that part of the plot already in play was Tinubu’s decision to send out his foot soldiers to unleash hate speech against prominent leaders in the North and other parts of the country. 

Spokesperson for the Campaign, Kola Ologbondiyan, said this in a statement, in Abuja, on Friday.

He said, “Nigerians have noted how Tinubu, who is heavily agonized by his looming defeat in the 2023 general elections, having been rejected by Nigerians, has now resorted to incendiary statements as well as deploying top members of his campaign, including a serving governor, to insult and condemn prominent Nigerian leaders as a ploy to trigger crisis in the polity.

“Our Campaign invites Nigerians to note how notable arrowheads and supporters of the Tinubu/Shettima Campaign have been moving around various media houses to spew hate speeches and promote blackmailing narratives apparently with the view to undermining our national unity and derailing the electoral process.

“Such top officials of the Tinubu Campaign are also reportedly instructed to attack peaceful and well-meaning Nigerians, issue threats, incite mob actions, promote riots and violence in various parts of the country in furtherance of Tinubu’s unrelenting incitement to his followers to deploy violence, fight and snatch power by all means in the 2023 general elections.

“Nigerians can still recall how Tinubu recently in London declared to his followers that ‘political power is not going to be served in a restaurant, it is not served a la carte. It is what we are doing; It is being determined; you do it at all costs; fight for it, grab it, snatch it and run with it”.

Ologbondiyan equally said, Nigerians can recall how Tinubu, in APC Campaign Rally in Abeokuta, Ogun State, made very wild allegations, incited his followers to see the February 25, Presidential election as a “revolution”.

According to him, “It is therefore not in doubt that having failed in every parameter of assessing a credible presidential candidate and having realized that he cannot win in the election, the APC Presidential Candidate is desperately seeking to cause anarchy, mayhem, bloodletting, violence and a forcible overthrow of our democratic system not minding the lives and safety of millions of Nigerians.

“It is clear that Tinubu is pathetically being driven by an entitlement mentality, and as such, he does not care about the unity of our country.  

“In any case, Tinubu had since announced that he does not believe in Nigeria as a nation. It is therefore obvious that he is in the Presidential race for purposes that are not for the wellbeing of Nigerians; thus his readiness to set our nation on fire for his selfish purpose.

“It is however pitiable that a two-term governor, who has been spewing divisive insults on the leaders of our nation, can make himself a willing tool just because of personal aggrandizement.

“Our Campaign calls on Nigerians to be wary and firmly resist the evil machinations of the Tinubu Presidential Campaign against our nation.

“Tinubu and his co-travelers must come to terms with the reality that Nigerians across ethnic, religious and political divides have made up their minds to elect the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, as the next President and not even their predilections to violence, hate speech and blackmail can detract from this resolve.”
