APCPCO: PDP plots to blackmail Muslim clerics over Buhari

The Buhari campaign said the alleged plan by the Jonathan-led Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), through some government controlled security agencies, was meant to shift the paradigm of public perception of corruption on them to the camp of the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC).
“If this clandestine plan is hatched like the use of the military to rig the polls in governorship election in Ekiti State last year, or the underhand treatment currently being given to INEC and other state institutions, we in the APC and majority of fellow Nigerian men and women would disbelieve it, resist it and question it till such an oppressive decision is rescinded and the anomaly rectified,” said MalamGarbaShehu, APCPCO Director of Media and Publicity in a signed statement on Friday in Abuja.
 “Information at our disposal show that certain state agencies like the Customs, Immigration, Police and so on are waiting on the wings to mop up PVC across the country (possibly from illegal immigrants) and bundle them on hapless religious leaders and District Heads of Northern  extraction, to corroborate PDP’s over-flogged narrative that people in the Northern States have collected voter’s cards by proxy; even though INEC top-shots have publicly denied such allegations. The ploy to also heap this electoral offence on APC cum Buhari supporters is, to say the least, dastardly, cruel and heinous,” the spokesman stressed.
“Election must not be seen or taken as a do-or-die affair. Nigeria belongs to all Nigerians and the best hands should govern it. After all, the opposition has won elections in Senegal, Ghana, Sri Lanka, among others. Why should ours be an exemption? Shehu queried.
“What President Jonathan and his party should learn from their multifarious campaign of malice and mudslinging, to which millions of state funds are daily being pumped, is that Nigerians are not buying their lies and they will voice out their anger through the ballot at the polls in March and April. No amount of cajolement or harassment can bottle the people’s power to elect their leaders. It is a constitutional right that not even the military has the power to remove. General Buhari is a man of proven integrity and honesty. These are the tangible and incorruptible attributes that endear him to the masses.”
