The All Progressives Congress (APC) declares that the elections under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari are free and fair.
Reacting to the statement of the National Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Uche Secondus that the 2019 General election was rigged, the ruling party’s Deputy press Secretary, Yekini Nabena, asked the opposition leader to focus on his party, “which has become shockingly aimless under his watch.”
“Under Secondus, the PDP has never had it so bad with opposition party stakeholders disconnected from party activities as it has seen with notable PDP leaders boycotting the party’s 2019 presidential campaigns and the recent bribery scandal of Bayelsa state Governor for a ticket that Secondus blamed,”He said in a statement.
“Little wonder, the recent months have witnessed many PDP members resign their membership due to Secondus activities which has brought the PDP to its knees.
“The PDP under Secondus is in willful denial of the obvious that under the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration, free, fair and credible elections is the new normal.
“Voting power is fast returning to the people and the era of stolen and procured votes is fast-fading. We reiterate that President Buhari’s declaration that the APC could have used the military and other security services to overrun opposition states in the 2019 general election but chose free, fair elections is a solid pointer and demonstration of our proven democratic and progressive credentials.”
Nabena urged “progressive partisans particularly in the PDP” not to sink with the opposition party which has become “disillusioned” under Secondus.
