PDP not plotting to postpone elections — Femi Fani-Kayode

Femi Fani-Kayode

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Organisation has dismissed as mischievous and unfounded the allegation by the All Progressives Congress (APC) that the Department of State Services (DSS) is in cahoots with the PDP and planning to postpone the February 14, 2015 Presidential Election.

The director of media and publicity of the campaign organisation, Femi Fani-Kayode, said the election would hold and predicted an emphatic victory for President Goodluck Jonathan.

Mr. Fani-Kayode described the APC charge as an attempt to discredit the electoral process and wreak havoc when the opposition party loses as it surely will.

He said in a statement in Abuja that, “it is interesting that the APC never came out with these lies about plans to postpone the election until its cloning and hacking activities were uncovered by the DSS.

“Rather than address the evidences presented by the DSS such as a video of 21 hacking tutorials, multiple registrations of individuals and underage persons including babies and foreigners, possession of temporary and permanent voter cards, the APC is raising postponement as a red herring, hoping to distract Nigerians from its nefarious activities.

“Our Campaign Organisation categorically states that our candidate, President Goodluck Jonathan, and the PDP-led Federal Government have no intention, whatsoever, to interfere in the workings of the INEC and therefore dissociates them from the plan, alleged by the APC, to postpone the February 14, 2015 Presidential Election.

“Indeed, we are eagerly looking forward to that day so that the ghost of the violence-prone APC with its criminal cloning and hacking attempts will be laid to rest in a crushing electoral defeat.

“We believe Nigerians are now familiar with the diversionary tactics of the APC. Before the Ekiti and Osun state gubernatorial elections, the same APC made all manner of allegations against the PDP, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and all the security agencies.

“When the elections held, Nigerians saw firsthand that none of the allegations made by the APC was true. So shall it be with this new claim of a purported postponement made by the APC.

“This unfounded and mischievous charge of election postponement is part of the APC’s nefarious and well-documented attempt to heat up the polity, lay the groundwork to create disharmony among Nigerians, discredit the forthcoming elections and wreck havoc once it loses the February 14, 2015 Presidential Election.

“We remind Nigerians that it was the Presidential Candidate of the APC, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd), who once told the world during a BBC Hausa interview that, ‘If what happened in 2011 should again happen in 2015, by the grace of God, the dog and the baboon would all be soaked in blood.’

“Even though the elections have not yet held, Buhari’s words of incitement have already borne disastrous fruit as evidenced by the recent violence in Jos, Plateau State, which was clearly spearheaded by his supporters.

“We condemn the violence and mischievous antics of the APC in its entirety and call on Nigerians to reject the party of Janjaweed ideology at the polls.

“We reiterate that the PDP remains committed to implementing its manifestoes, touching the lives of Nigerians, transforming our nation and bequeathing a legacy of development to future generation.”

    The corrupt mantra !

    BREAKING NEWS! BREAKING NEWS!! LISTEN ATTENTIVELY TO THE VOICE OF REASON: NOT A JOKE.

    “Reports
    are flying that Northern leaders who had hitherto supported Buhari may
    be making a U-turn in the February elections after reports that the
    general may be having a serious health problem.

    This is following the online rumors that Buhari collapsed during his presidential campaign rally in Calabar.

    Even though the APC denied the report, it has given cause for worry,
    and the North has become wary, after they were ‘sidelined’ after
    Yar’Adua died in May, 2010 before completing his tenure, a development
    which led to the abrupt shift of power to the South-South under the
    rulership of incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan.

    “The North is
    beginning to rethink the promised support for Buhari in view of reports
    that he is suffering from a certain ailment which is believed to be
    wearing him down. There are also reports that the elders are pushing to
    cut a deal with Jonathan to complete his tenure in 2019 but extract a
    promise that power would be returned to the North via a younger and
    energetic Northerner,” a source said.

    “If anything happens to
    Buhari, power will return to the South-West less than a decade after
    President Obasanjo left Aso Rock. The prospects are grim, both for the
    North and even the South-East that is queuing for their own turn,”
    another Northern top personality is reported as saying” —NIGERIAN

      Please don’t believe every trash you read in the papers. Ronald reagan was 70 when he became President of the United States and he governed for eight solid years…..people were even asking for more but he was barred by the Constitution. Buhari will win hands down and will be sworn in as President in 2015….you can take that to the Bank!

      • Shuaibu Bola Victor

        Fake information. Ronald Reagan was 68. Advance democracies of US and UK never elected any one more than 68 yrs of age president . 70yrs and above belongs to declining age. Take note
