The All Progressives Congress, APC has issued a statement claiming the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP is set to scuttle the victory of its Presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari. A statement issued by Garba Shehu, Directorate of Media & Publicity, APC Presidential Campaign Organisation, read, ”The All Progressive Congress’ Presidential Campaign Organization has asked the general public to ponder on a statement posted on Facebook by an official of the Presidency saying their government will rather hand over power to the military rather than to General Muhammadu Buhari in the event that the APC candidate wins the election.
”The Blackberry Messenger (BBM) statement by Deji Adeyanju, an official in the Office of the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Public Affairs, Doyin Okupe, said “Buhari can never be President of Nigeria. Quote me any day any time. Instead of Buhari to become President of Nigeria, Nigeria would rather break. A military coup will even be allowed than for Buhari to become the president of a democratic Nigeria quote me any day, any time.
”This statement is still to be denied or retracted by the official who handles Dr Doyin Okupe’s Twitter handle. Unless it is convincingly rebutted, the statement above, by the ruling party appears to clearly be uninterested in free, fair and conclusive elections, but rather to engender crisis and chaos if it happens that the APC candidate, General Buhari wins the elections.
