APC Using Anambra To Test Its Evil Machinations Against The Country In 2015 – PDP

Published

on

APC-PDPThe ruling Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) has alleged that the series of events leading to the November 16 governorship election in Anambra State has vindicated its earlier position that the All Progressives Congress (APC) had planned to unleash violence and rig the election.

The National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Chief Olisa Metuh, said in a statement in Abuja on Thursday that the “arraignment in court of the 182 armed thugs imported into Anambra by the APC to cause mayhem and disrupt the elections had justified PDP’s earlier call on security agencies to provide adequate security and the enabling environment to ensure that election held peacefully and without violence in spite of the plan by the APC to turn the state into a theatre of war and bloodshed”.

Stating that the APC was “trying to use Anambra to test its evil machination against the entire country”, the PDP said the opposition party having discovered that it would lose in 2015, “has hatched a heavily funded plot to use the instrumentality of blackmail, lies and propaganda to discredit the electoral system and cause massive uprising immediately after the 2015 general elections”.

Metuh said the APC was a party of desperate politicians, who were now deeply pained that Nigerians have rejected them, adding that it was on record that APC, since its formation, had not won any election, be it at the local, state or national level.

“Having realised that it has no chance of winning in 2015 and equally scared of losing states currently under its unfortunate control, the APC is now seeking every means to cast doubts in the minds of Nigerians on the electoral system ahead of the general elections” the PDP spokesman said.

“This explains why the APC will continue to cry foul in elections where they were roundly beaten as in the Delta senatorial rerun election where they came fourth; Ondo governorship election where they came third and Anambra governorship where they also came third despite their grandstanding and long period of campaign”.

He, however, failed to acknowledge the shooting of protesters by soldiers of the Nigerian Army at the Lekki Toll Gate on Tuesday night.
