The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of planning to rig the 2019 presidential election by not constituting his campaign council or develop a clear-cut campaign blueprint, 61 days to the presidential election scheduled for February 2019.
This, the party maintained, is an indication that the President is not preparing for the election.
The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement on Sunday alleged that President Buhari and the ruling All Progressives Congress have not set up a campaign structure because they are banking on their plot with the Independent National Electoral Commission under Prof. Mahmood Yakubu to rig the election for them.
The PDP alleged that the present administration has wrecked the nation’s once robust economy, crippled its critical sectors, entrenched corruption at the high places.
The PDP spokesman said Buhari has nothing to offer on security; and has no message on education, agriculture, health, energy, power, employment, manufacturing and other key sectors. According to him, instead of seeking ways to make amends, the President has told Nigerians to be ready to face more suffering and hardship in the remaining part of his tenure.
He said the PDP and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, were working hard,
campaigning across the country and offering solutions. He advised Buhari and the APC to note that they could not have their way as Nigerians were determined in their resolve to resist any attempt by to rig the forthcoming elections.
