The Peoples Democratic Party said Nigerians would not allow President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress to rig the general elections.
He urged Buhari to accept his “imminent defeat when it eventually comes” on February 16.
The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, stated this during a media briefing in Abuja, adding that the alleged recourse to the importation of mercenaries into Nigeria would not save Buhari and the APC from defeat.
He said, “The world can recall how certain leaders in the past attempted to subvert our constitutional democracy, arrogate excessive powers to themselves and how they failed in the face of the Nigerian spirit.
“Today, that Nigerian spirit, with which we won our democracy and nurtured it to this stage, is being assailed by the APC and the Buhari presidency with their unrelenting constitutional breaches, attacks on our democratic institutions, violation of human rights, siege to our electoral system and opening of our territorial borders to mercenaries; all in the bid to subdue our citizenry and achieve a self succession plan, having realized that there is no way they can win in a free, fair and peaceful election.”
According to him, all these will not break the Nigerian spirit.
Ologbondiyan alleged that the APC and the Buhari presidency had become “uncontrollably feverish” over the perceived acceptance of the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, in all the geopolitical zones.
“This accounts for the manipulations in INEC and the smuggling in of mercenaries from the Niger Republic to populate APC rallies, ostensibly to unleash them on our nation immediately it is clear that President Buhari is losing at the polls.”
