…FG’s Security Allegations Against PDP, Atiku Are Diversionary Stunts
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says the Facebook revelation
detailing the devious manipulations and engineering of disinformation
in the 2019 general election by President Buhari’s handlers and All
Progressives Congress (APC) further exposes them as schemers and real
enemies of our democracy and national cohesion.
According to a statement signed by Kola ologbondiyan, “The party says
that the revelation exposes the APC as a fraudulent and violent-loving
party, whose divisive activities are now directly threatening the
security stability of our nation.
“Indeed, the Buhari Presidency and the APC should hide their faces in
shame as Nigerians have seen that their professed sanctimony and
‘holier-than-thou’ claims are mere masqueradings.
“Our party notes that there are more damning revelations against the
APC, not only on its rigging of the general election but also on how
it is working against our nation, which will come to light at the
“The APC, which engaged in manipulation to foist itself, will do
anything, no matter how vile, to sustain itself in office, not minding
the social, economic and collateral damages such could cause our dear
“It is, however, to say the least, despicable that in their
desperation to hold on to power at all costs, President Buhari’s
handlers and the APC engaged in this sneaky disinformation, internet
lies and smear campaigns against PDP Presidential candidate, Atiku
“It is also unpardonable that instead of owning up, the Federal
Government and the APC, through the Minister of Information and
Culture, Lai Mohammed, are seeking to cover their tracks and divert
public attention from their devious acts by making unsubstantiated
security allegations against our party and Atiku Abubakar.
“The Facebook revelation exposes how President Buhari, in his claimed
integrity, allowed the enlisting of criminals, hackers and internet
fraudsters in the desperate attempt to manipulate the views of
Nigerians against Atiku Abubakar; a scheme which failed as Nigerians
had already made up their minds to do away with the incompetent,
deceptive, vindictive and corrupt APC administration.
“Our party has information of how the APC had to resort to crude
manipulation of the electoral process to muscle votes and alter
election results after it failed in the smear campaign project.
“The APC has now commenced a renewed plot to engage in fabricated
security accusations against the PDP and our Presidential candidate in
another desperate stunt to play the victim and divert attention from
its endless election manipulations, all in the ill-fated attempt to
demonize the PDP, hoodwink Nigerians and confer legitimacy on the
outcome of the rigged election.
“Since the Facebook revelation, the Federal Government and the
Presidency have suddenly gone dumb, having been exposed and shown in
their true colours. However, the PDP holds to the eternal truth that
no matter how lies appears to prevail, truth is bound to triumph at
the end of the day.”
