Alleged Coup Plotting: You Are A Liar, Your Misdeed, The Shadows Haunting After You, PDP Tells Buhari, APC #OsazuwaAkonedo
Peoples Democratic Party, P.D.P has described as a blackmail in the face of wrong doing or failure the allegation raised by President Muhammadu Buhari that some politicians and religious leaders are planning or plotting coup to oust him out of power.
President Muhammadu Buhari through one of his Spokespersons, Femi Adesina after receiving security briefing from service chiefs yesterday at Aso Rock, issued a press release stating that D.S.S informed him of plans by some disgruntled past political leaders and religious leaders to wreck havoc in the nation by forcefully changing the nation leadership and bring in undemocratic government.
P.D.P in a statement signed by Kola Ologbondiyan, the party National Publicity Secretary and made available to newsmen yesterday, said instead of President Muhammadu Buhari led government to look inward and live up the responsibility of securing the nation, the Presidency is busy making frivolous allegations.
P.D.P statement reads:
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) describes the allegation by the Buhari Presidency that some Nigerians were plotting a forceful and undemocratic change of leadership, as a resort to blackmail in the face of failure.
The PDP says that rather than live up to the responsibilities of office by taking charge and securing our nation, the Presidency is busy engaging in frivolous allegations against Nigerians.
It is however imperative to state that the Buhari Presidency and the All Progressives Congress (APC) are being haunted by their own shadows as Nigerians know the persons as well as the political party with the history and penchant to scuttle democratically elected government.
Perhaps, the Presidency has forgotten that in 1983, Brigadier Muhammadu Buhari, as he was then known, led a military coup to truncate a democratically elected government thereby causing our nation a huge drawback on democratic governance.
Also, in 2015, the APC, which was hurriedly formulated, made itself available as a vehicle of brigandage to disrupt our political process by beguiling Nigerians and taking power through violence, propaganda and falsehood.
Even in 2019, Nigerians will be quick to remember how the APC imported bandits, vandals and thugs from neighboring countries, as political mercenaries, to unleash violence, disrupt our voting processes and muscle itself to power.
The PDP therefore counsels the Buhari Presidency and the APC to look inwards as all fingers toward any possible plots to upturn our democracy point to them.
Our party believes that the statement by the Buhari Presidency is an attempt by the APC to heighten political tension in our country ahead of the 2023 election, having realized that they cannot face the people at the polls.
The PDP however advises the APC to know that such blackmail against Nigerians cannot help their cause.
For us in the PDP, our party will remain undeterred, alongside other patriotic Nigerians, in our commitment towards the sustenance and stability of our democracy as well as the unity and corporate existence of our country, Nigeria.
