PDP replies APC over alleged plot to indict Jega with huge sum

Olisa Metuh, Spokesman, PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party says the string of false alarms and outright lies that characterized Wednesday’s press conference addressed by the All Progressives Congress has clearly justified its profiling as a party of ‘one week, one lie’.

PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh in a statement on Wednesday said Nigerians are, however, not surprised that the APC has officially adopted the use of fabrications having exhausted its fake campaign promises which were not able to upstage the verifiable achievements of the President Goodluck Jonathan-led PDP administration.

“Indeed, Nigerians are not surprised at the contents of the recent false alarms by the APC as they are undoubtedly a reflection of the character, inner thoughts and ideology of its leaders. These ignoble ideas are clearly incompatible with the ideology of the PDP and President Jonathan who has overtime demonstrated the qualities of a true democrat and not a reformed one,​” the party said.

The PDP noted that the opposition in its penchant for falsehood failed to realize that under the current financial system, it is practically impossible to transfer the so called humongous amount of money into any bank account without the source being traced by relevant independent financial monitoring bodies like the EFCC.

“In any case, we note that the allegation by APC is suspect and betrays an attempt to cover-up. We ask, is it that the APC has already been paying monies into accounts of INEC officials and some institutions of government with a view to compromising them and is now using the allegation as a subterfuge to distract the financial monitoring agencies and cover its tracks?

“We challenge the APC to come out clear on the actual link between its leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, whose antecedents and reputation are well known to all, and the said transfer plot? Was Tinubu’s name also dropped by the APC as a strategy to pre-empt findings by anti-graft agencies in a bid to cover a crime?

“Whilst we note that nothing is beyond a desperate party like the APC, which has continued to manifest its crass lack of integrity, we charge relevant agencies to immediately investigate the allegations and possibly unravel its evil plots.

“We have also noted the hues and cries of the opposition regarding the issue of PVCs and Card readers for the elections but Nigerians are not short in their memory to recall that it is not the PDP but APC that had issues with security agencies over attempts to hack into INEC’s data base and to clone the PVCs.

It is also not the PDP but the APC that has complicities with some compromised INEC officials on biased distribution of PVCs in select states especially, Lagos and other APC states.” the PDP said.

The ruling party also debunked allegations of plans to use security agencies to intimidate or implicate opposition leaders describing such as “part of APC’s worn out antics of attempting to use nuisance alarm to heat up the system having failed to articulate credible manifesto to secure genuine followership among Nigerians.”

“Nigerians are aware that this is not the first time the opposition would be raising such alarms just for Nigerians to find out that they are lies. We have here a group of people who are being haunted by failure and self inflicted woes. APC has all along been deluding itself as a government in waiting with some phantom popular image it created for itself in the social media. Now that reality has dawn it in the face, it has resorted to deploying all manners of antics in a failed attempt to win the sympathy of Nigerians”, it said.

Restating its readiness for the March 28 and April 11 elections, the ruling party said “APC’s resort to wild allegations and baseless utterances are aimed at causing confusion, a clear indication that the opposition is indeed scared of the elections, having been exposed in their deceit, empty promises and apparent lack of capacity to lead the nation.”

    • eddy

      My brother the thing tire me… as if they haven’t already tried it. I am sure Jonathan must be seriously regretting his decision to appoint jega!

    • taiwo

      You need to work harder and write more sensible comments to please your pay master liar Mohammed

      • Emeka

        i know Lai Mohammed the same way you know him, from the media. so what is your point again?

  • Gbofia Lunar

    PDP is alway quick to respond when these said allegations hit a “home run”…

  • babatope

    We believe in APC and their allegations, we know all that is going underground together with IBB as the coach of GEJ

  • Khadijah D.

    This PDP sef! Their replies lacks substance

    • Philip Musa

      …even your writing seriously indicts APC! What kind of a writer are you?

      • taiwo

        The APC and their penchant for lies and noise making has become common knowledge in Nigeria,people now disregard their press releases.

        • logmein2nite

          So what are you doing here?

      • Khadijah D.

        The kind PDP has been using……. I.e. Thug Fayose, Basketmouth Fani Kayode, Confuse Metuh, Bastard Okupe……… Etc

  • Eniola Adeola

    APC and lies when will they ever get to realise that Nigerians are now aware of their antics and stop disturbing our polity

    • logmein2nite

      All APC predictions have either come true or forced a change of tactics on PDP. Kudos to the patriotic men and women of the “intelligence unit” of APC. I credit them with saving this democracy.

      • taiwo

        And yet you complain when I call you mumu

        • logmein2nite

          I don’t remember you calling me mumu, not to talk of complaining. Democracy is funny; every little gullible brat makes his own silly opinions heard.

          • taiwo

            Exactly what you are doing here little brat,I marvel at how you amply describe yourself

      • Patriotique

        This is a fact! At first I tried to believe it was rumour propaganda, but when the rumour came that election will be postponed; when rumour came that there will be rented crowd to protest at Chatam House; and what followed was obvious. Now after these, I have to believe that there is element of truth in every rumour. APC do your good work.

  • logmein2nite

    APC that cannot even buy TV airtime again for adverts will now out-bribe Jonathan/Madueke/Okonjo-Iwela clique. Very soon PDP will accuse APC of planning to use security agencies to intimidate PDP. I just dey laugh o. 28th March Abeg come joo make we do quick vote out this power hungry and party once and for all before it plunges this country into anarchy.

    • Ahmad

      Abeg no kill me with laughter! Anyway, your guess is on track as this is a party that specializes in blame game. After all Adamu Muazu blamed APC for the current fuel shortage.

    • taiwo

      You guys are so daft are you sure you all are not related to liar mohammed because you all reason alike.Did he pack you guys from his village and are you guys all his seeds sown all over the country

      • logmein2nite

        Grow up. You’re still not seeing. Shine your eyes!

        • taiwo

          You have amply advised yourself,I wish you will take your advise and help yourself

          • logmein2nite

            Sorry I can’t help you. You may see, but not now. You’re fully in the grip of PDP TV propaganda. When we succeed with the change, some of you will come over. Some minds are just too small and inexperienced to contemplate the truth.

          • taiwo

            The only people that do propaganda is the APC,and now it isn’t working anymore,advise your boss that he needs to go back to drawing board and bring another strategy

          • logmein2nite

            Ha ha ha. “The only people that do propaganda is APC”. You repeat only what you hear. See how powerful PDP propaganda really is. It works on you unawares. You don’t even imagine you’re a victim. Good job! But truth must ultimately prevail.

  • taiwo

    I wonder why this irredentist and trouble making spokesperson of the APC have refused to realise that Nigerians are not fools,why won’t he go for lessons on how to be the spokesperson of a party from the PDP spokesperson Mr Metuh.The security agencies must beam their search lights on these evil men especially Tinubu because clearly they are up something

  • Ahmad

    Keep quite Metuh. Your evil plots have been pre emptied by the watchful eyes of the APC. Quitely go and leak your wounds inflicted by the APC. Your abhorrence to INEC’s card readers and PVCs for credible election knows no bounds.

    • taiwo

      Useless drop out of an APC e rat thank God for Jonathan you can now freely come to the online medium and insult great men like Metuh who are working hard to maintain the peace and progress of this nation.mumu

      • logmein2nite

        Na you be mumu. Na Jonathan own social media. Even in Cuba people are talking online. Fish head.

        • taiwo

          Mumu you don’t even know that Jonathan is the only president in the whole of Africa that doesn’t censor the social media and arrest people to answer for their comments.Even the fact that you mentioned Cuba has shown me the level and the mental capacity of the fellow I am arguing with.I won’t even bother to reply you again because obviously you need education.Better take advantage of any of the universities or the almajiri schools established by our humble and hardworking president.Nigeria is moving forward with or without you guys

          • logmein2nite

            Go on say what you think you know about Cuba. The only president in Africa that does not censor social media. How childish?

    • Yusuf Ahmed

      Some have eyes but cannot see #Ahmad

    • Debo

      Guys, take it easy on him. PDP’s doubt about card readers is very well founded, as far as PVCs are concerned, i think the problem is with the skewed distribution and not the use of PVC itself. Back to allegations; how do you suppose in this day that someone will transfer money into your account without your knowledge and you wont be able to trace it. How can Jega be implicated if PDP deposit money in his account when all he has to do is ask the bank to trace the source – which they would have done anyway because i imagine it will be a large sum. That aspect of the allegations is baseless and does not do well to APC’s image.

  • taiwo

    Don’t stand up now and be counted continue collecting crumbs from liar Mohammed to sell your future to highly evil and power crazy politicians majority of who ran away from the reformed PDP into the janjaweed APC of a thing

  • taiwo

    If all these antics and wild allegations from the APC are meant to cover up the fact that the grand pa Is still on medical leave in London a few weeks to his election they have failed.Nigerians now know the truth that Booboohari is down with prostrate cancer but is being prodded by Tinubu and his cabal to seek to become a front man of a cabal desperate to ravage NIgeria

    • TRUTH MASTER

      On one write up you are commenting feverishly. You are justifying your 5,000 Naira a month stipend….though you are not making much of a sense.

      • taiwo

        you have just told us what the APC pays to you guys,shame on you for displaying all these kolomental in this forum all because of 5k

  • taiwo

    We have here a group of people who are being haunted by failure and self inflicted woes. APC has all along been deluding itself as a government in waiting with some phantom popular image it created for itself in the social media. Now that reality has dawn it in the face, it has resorted to deploying all manners of antics in a failed attempt to win the sympathy of Nigerians”, it said. This statement just made my day

  • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

    Why has Buhari not been seen since last Thursday’s useless Chatham House appearance? Is the senile, demented, illiterate, certificate forger and perjurer dead?

    • taiwo

      We don’t wish him dead he needs to finish his treatment and come home so we can give him the message a fourth time maybe this time he will get it and retire to daura peacefully maybe set up a foundation and help his people for the ist time in his life.Unless maybe he is gunning for the position of mayor of London in which case I wish him Goodluck

    • TRUTH MASTER

      A Buhari that is not seen is one million times better than a ubiquitous GEJ. Hope you can decipher that.

    • Garden-City Boy

      May be Baba should help us out here as he did with Yar’Adua…….remember his phone conversation with the late president:”Umaru, are you dead?” The same formula may again work if he calls to ask:”Muhamadu (or, is it now Mohamed), are you dead”, even after the bucket is already been kicked.

  • FortB

    I guess freedom of speech gives every low life the right to continue to inundate us daily with tissues of LIES, and we are suppose to just take it in our stide? APC, please change strategy, because these lies have become boring

    • taiwo

      No body listens to them any more

  • Yusuf Ahmed

    APC has really ran out of propaganda, what a shame. I thought their lies will never finish but they have come to the end of the road with their bundles of lies.

  • taiwo

    The APC really disappointed Nigerians that felt that we now have two vibrant parties to challenge each other,obviously the only national party in Nigeria is the PDP,the APC noisemakers are merely full of hot air ,hate speeches and criminal plots and schemes all time

    • logmein2nite

      Patience Jonathan campaigning in Calabar asked PDP supporters to “stone anybody that says Change” to them. It’s all over on YouTube. All the vituperations from FFK every day against Buhari, Tinubu etc, now all these are not “hate speech” because they come from PDP, abi?

      • TRUTH MASTER

        Thank you. I have watched it too. She is surely heading for The Hague…..

      • malik shaibu

        people who mouth evil change should really not only be stoned but they should also be tried for treason and executed.Our president is too nice and that is why so many cowards are talking trash every where

    • TRUTH MASTER

      i am a NIgerian and I am not disappointed in the APC. Rather, I am ashamed of the PDP. Please speak for yourself

      • Eniola Adeola

        Truth master you are an e rat and has nothing to offer us in this forum,Nigeria is seriously transforming and growing,even with the negative efforts of alliance progressive criminals to thwart GEJ good work,Nigeria was still rated the third fastest growing econom in the world.

        • TRUTH MASTER

          I have a prayer for you: May it be for you as you wish me. Can you say Amen?

      • malik shaibu

        The fact that you bear a fake name in this forum has exposed you for the APC rodent that you are therefore your opinion doesn’t count,you are merely here to do the bidding of your pay masters

        • TRUTH MASTER

          Ever heard of what is called nom du guerre? Go and check it out in your dictionaryy. ‘Truth Master’ is not a fake name. It is my nom du guerre, and that is nothing new, except to the poorly educated. I have no pay masters. I am not the one who is locked up in a room along with many others to engage in Internet Trolling…for a fee! You know yourselves.

    • abelxandercel

      Mr you are a PDP apologist, and left for me there’s nothing wrong in that, likewise for others who support APC. so don’t pretend to be speaking in a neutral point of view. Have been following some of your comment and its all about damn the APC and up PDP.

  • Godfrey Etokebe

    Metuh,
    I beg live gentility aside. CHARGE them (APC) to Court. DAMAGES claim: US$100 Billion for DEFAMATION of PDP’S INTEGROUS CHARACTER!!!!!

    • malik shaibu

      my thoughts exactly

  • Jerry Martins

    One pdp evil tricky plan destroyed…apc guys keep it up and keep the drag till 28th day of this month of freedom..Mejority of Nigerians will support this change movenment and trust in God/Alla GMB will not fail.

    • malik shaibu

      the fake change mantra has failed woefully already and that is why your grand pa is hiding in london and going through chemo treatment

  • Patriotique

    APC please keep it up. Expose all their evil plans and salvage the nation. We have hope. We will patiently wait till March 28. Don’t let them stop your momentum. God bless Nigeria!

  • The PDP Magicians are desirous of truncating the 2015 elections.

  • obianuju #GMB15

    Pdp always plotting evil

    • Eniola Adeola

      All progress alliance of criminals are not a part to align with,they are full of lies of deceit.

  • Anene Mercy

    APC’s cup is full. They are now looking for who to blame and pour their frustration on. Their bogus and baseless allegation should be ignored, though caution must be applied as the desperation of the party to grab power by all means is unprecedented.

  • Victor Gee

    “We challenge the APC to come out clear on the actual link between its leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, whose antecedents and reputation are well known to all, and the said transfer plot? Was Tinubu’s name also dropped by the APC as a strategy to pre-empt findings by anti-graft agencies in a bid to cover a crime?”.

    Metu thanks so much on this ur line of thinking. I had this same thought. It is possible APC had paid money into Jega’s account and what a cover up. That party must be exposed.

  • Etang Chris

    It is “part of APC’s worn out antics of attempting to use nuisance alarm to heat up the system having failed to articulate credible manifesto to secure genuine followership among Nigerians.” chief Metu I agree less. U just hit the nail on head. Jonathan will win Buhari even if they empty all their individual accounts into Jega’s

  • inuwa kate

    APC should be worried over Buhari’s sickness and stop involving Jega into their mess. They should allow INEC do their job.

  • malik shaibu

    APC should do well to realise that Nigerians have gotten to know them and their lies and propaganda very well,it is time they change their style if really they retain any hope of getting votes from the people in this election

  • dd

    I am happy that PDP guys are thinking. I said it before, once APC do something or about to, they use reverse blame or attack just to hide from such evil. They must have paid fund into Jega’s account and now afraid they will be caught and now they are pointing fingers to avoid arrest.

    • bib

      But whatever allegation APC makes comes out to be true. Didn’t APC say some of the surrogate parties would be used trying to scuttle the election? Hasn’t started already. We thank God for giving us a real opposition party waiting to take over the govt on May 29, 2015.

      • dd

        It is guess work. They are just permutating. They are asking themselve we are in GEJ position how would we handle it. Any suggestion brought enter this news media as PDP strategy. APC = PDP and PDP = APC.
        Keep dreaming till 2019.

  • bootypoppin

    Nigerians don’t know the value of opposition. They dont know that its for their own benefit. I have never seen PDP up on their toes like this b4.
