APC, Presidency In Fresh Plot To Set Up Atiku -PDP NWC

Rivers people celebrating the victory of State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike on the streets of Port Harcourt, recently.

The National Working Committee, NWC, of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Thursday said no amount of fabrications, attempt at set-up as well as veiled and open threats allegedly by the All Progressives Congress, APC-led federal government can stop its Presidential candidate in the 2019 election, AtikuAbubakar from reclaiming his mandate at the tribunal.
This is even as the party rejected in its entirety, “the declaration by the Presidency that AtikuAbubakar is “lucky to be walking free”, adding that such a statement was inciting and “brings to the fore the unwholesome intention of the APC-led administration against AtikuAbubakar for seeking to retrieve his stolen mandate at the court.”
In a statement signed by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan on Thursday, the PDP said it was aware “that the series of orchestrations against AtikuAbubakar and the PDP by agents of the federal government, officials of the Presidency and the Buhari Media Organisation, BMO, expose a well-coordinated plot, which includes a resort to unfounded claims of links with a foreign lobby group, to attempt to frame AtikuAbubakar, cause tension and ultimately derail the recovery of the stolen mandate at the Presidential election tribunal.”
The statement added that “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 AtikuAbubakar and the PDP to restore the will of the people.”
The statement continued: “Part of the motive is to use lies, fabrications, threats and sponsoring of Atiku campaign posters to portray AtikuAbubakar and the PDP as being desperate and ready to subvert the rules in the pursuit of our mandate; and by so doing discredit our candidate in the eyes of the judiciary and the public in general.
“This explains why agents of the APC-led government fabricated and pushed into the public space, bogus and laughable claims that AtikuAbubakar paid $30,000 to a US lobby group to assist in the quest to reclaim our mandate only for the Federal Government and the Presidency to turn around to feast on the fabrications with threats against AtikuAbubakar”.
