APC pushing Nigeria to the brink – PDP

PDP Manifesto word cloud

The ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, says the opposition All Progressives Congress, APC, now confronted with the reality of failure in the 2015 general elections, has intensified its frenzied deployment of false alarms aimed at throwing the polity into chaos and wreck the electoral process.

The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, in a statement on Monday said, “Having been exposed in its hypocrisy, lies and empty promises, the APC in obvious frustration is now engaged in dangerous mind game using wild allegations in a bid to cause panic, balkanize the nation and create the way for a reign of anarchy in the country.

“For the APC, it has become a matter of ‘if we can’t have it, then let’s destroy it’. In the last couple of weeks, this opposition party and its leaders have engaged in dishing out dangerous false alarms in a bid to discredit the electoral process, heighten tension, create fear in the minds of the people and push the polity to the brinks.

“For instance, how else would one explain the false alarm by the leader of the opposition, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu on Thursday, March 12, 2015 alleging that there were plots to assassinate him, a phantom claim which was followed on Sunday, March 15 by the APC in a statement that there were plans to kill their Presidential flagbearer, General Muhammadu Buhari.
“Also, on the same March 15, the APC in a yet another statement falsely claimed that the Federal Government paid N9 billion to ethnic militias to foment trouble, before, during and after the general elections. This was immediately followed by a release on Monday, March 16, in which the opposition, in their unrelenting effort to further discredit the process, alleged that the Federal Government has hired an Israeli expert, Gyora Berger to sabotage card readers on Election Day.

“In the same vein, on March 4, 2015, the APC released a false alarm claiming that there were plots by the Federal Government to frame its leaders and sensitive INEC officials and manipulate the electoral process. This is in addition to another statement on March 9 in which it alleged of plots to harass its financiers and cripple its operations ahead of elections.

“We are aware that the APC has lined up many of such false allegations and nuisance alarms, which would be methodologically released to the public to swell the tension as the elections draw nearer.

“APC’s history of lies has become legendary. Nigerians may recall that this party in their penchant for deceit had in June 2014 alleged that a plane carrying Kano state Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso to attend a rally in Ekiti to support Governor Kayode Fayemi’s re-election bid was denied landing permission in Akure, only for Kwankwaso’s Director of Press Affairs, Baba Dantiye to announce that his boss was at another event in Kano and had no plans to travel to Ekiti state.

“It is indeed clear that the APC has no positive agenda for Nigeria but on a mission to grab power at all cost, failing which it has perfected plots to unleash mayhem and destabilize the nation.

“We therefore alert the entire nation, especially security agencies, electoral officials and our members to be vigilant as these allegations could indeed be a subterfuge by the APC to cover a grand plot to unbridle violence on innocent citizens”, the party said.

The PDP also charged its members to remain focused on the campaigns and not allow themselves be distracted, especially seeing that it is enjoying the support and confidence of majority of Nigerians.

The party restated its commitment to issue driven campaign, leveraging on the enviable achievements of the standard bearer, President Goodluck Jonathan, for which Nigerians are determined to give him a deserving second chance, while berating the APC for dwelling on lies and insults without articulating any positive programme for Nigerians.

“Our final advice to the APC is that rather than plunge our dear nation into chaos in the pursuit of their selfish interests, they should be humble enough to face reality, acknowledge their electoral inferiority to the PDP and surrender to the will of the Nigerian people,” the PDP said.

    APC is a party full of lies. Thanks Metu for compiling all these APC lies and bringing them to the public. APC wants power or cause chaos but God will disappoint them.

    • progress

      God does support olumba olumba, corrupt and criminal leader like Gej!

  • Victor Gee

    Since APC believes that card readers can be manipulated why insisting on using it. Are we saying we want an election where the card reader if manipulated could give victory to the contrary.

  • Anene Mercy

    We must say no to APC. I heard APC has floated a secret radio station which broadcast only in Hausa language. What exactly is APC planning, are they for this election or are they another NEDECO?

  • Etang Chris

    Metu, We are ready to vote out APC. We are aware of all their lies and deceits. On March 28, we will pay them back with their own coin.

    • progress

      You mean we ready to vote the criminal Gej.

  • Etang Chris

    America says Nigeria will break in 2015. The support APC is getting from USA govt is suspicious. Nigerians shine ur eyes.

  • Yusuf Ahmed

    The APC game is up and they are trying by any means to cause anarchy in the system. Their campaign strategy is now an open secret and they have no where to hide anymore. All they can do now is to dish out lies but there is no more lies to tell. Nigerians are waiting to place them where they belong come 28 march.

    • progress

      Mumu, fake mugu!

  • BlackieUmukoro

    The APC propaganda machinery is worse than that of Biafran during the civil war. No wonder they have gone ahead to establish a radio station to dish out false information

  • oluwaseyi mayowa

    The APC has lost all sense of decency in this elections and are now clearly on a downward spiral,their desperation is becoming more manifest in the way they now go about looking for excuses to call out people to riot and cause chaos but this too has been roundly ignored by the people

  • malik shaibu

    All the game plan of the APC to destabilise our nation with the help of US will continue to be aborted by the people of Nigeria.We are united in our zeal to move forward and we know that a Tinubu getting power is the worst thing that can happen to this country.SAI JONATHAN 2015 SHIKENA

  • tunji braimoh

    Personally i can’t wait for the 28th to come and pass so that we can shame the people that thinks they can drive us to war while their families are abroad enjoying their loots.People like Amaechi must face the law and account for all the monies belonging to rivers people that he squandered on boobuhari

  • taiwo

    The INEC must as a matter of urgency be stampeded by all well meaning Nigerians to discard the usage of this card reader till it has been well tested and perfected.It seems this is the latest antics of the APC to destabilize our nation and throw the country into chaos by jamming the readers during the elections

  • shamsudeen sadiq

    The APC can lie from today to infinity but it wont change the defeat that is waiting for them on the 28th and on the 11th

  • Tope Alabi R

    I have never seen any press statement from that APC spokes person that isnt either abusing our president or dishing out one hate speech or the other against our security agencies or against institutions of govt,infact i don’t bother to read their statements any longer.He needs to go for a crash course on how to be the spokesperson of a national party before Nigerians can trust them with power,can’t he take a cue from Bar Metuh of the PDP?.The APC is evidently not here to stay considering that they are a collection of angry and displaced politicians seeking power by all means possible,it is therefore safe to predict that they will disintegrate after their defeat at the polls

  • halima

    i support APC but i think most of our men are full of hatred and not fact/truth………meanwhile…..Good
