The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has suspended its Presidential Mega Rally, earlier scheduled for today in Abuja.
In a statement issued by the Director, Media and Publicity, PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan on Saturday in Abuja, PDP accused the presidency and the All Progressives Congress (APC) of shutting down the Pld Parade Ground, Garki, Abuja, where Atiku Abubakar, its presidential candidate, was supposed to use for the rally.
Ologbondiyan said payment had been made and the venue had been secure until it was told by officials managing the facility that there was an order that the facility should not be used by Atiku.
The opposition party alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari Buhari has become jittery over “spontaneous mammoth crowd of Nigerians at Atiku Abubakar’s rallies across the country, leading to the desperation to frustrate itsrallies, resort to smear campaigns, vandalizing of its campaign materials and denial of venues, in APC controlled states, as was the case in Kano state recently.
The party accused of President Buhari doing everything to stop Atiku but vowed to fight on.
