APC, PDP Engage In War Of Words Over Readiness For 2019 Elections



The All Progressives Congress (APC) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) engaged in war of words of the preparedness of both parties for the 2019 general elections.

The PDP alleged that the President Muhammadu Buhari and his party were conspiring with the Independent National Electoral Commission to rig the elections, stating further that the ruling party was not ready for the elections.

The National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement, warned the APC led government to avoid of these unpatriotic ideas, adding that the Nigerians are ready for change in government and good governance.

He said, “President Buhari is not ready for election. We have about 60 days to the election, yet the APC has not constituted its election campaign committee and the party is not talking to Nigerians on the need to vote for it.

“The whole world has now seen that the only reason President Buhari has refused to sign the Electoral Bill is because he knows that there is no way he can win in a peaceful, credible, free and fair election. His only hope in contesting the election is getting INEC and security forces to assist him and the APC to rig. For PDP, our presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, is ready for the election.”

The APC, however, denied the allegation and accused the PDP of contacting some Russian agents in the bid to hack INEC’s server during the 2019 general elections.

The APC, however, insisted that the PDP had contacted some Russian agents in the bid to hack INEC’s server during the 2019 general elections.

The party said this accounted for why the opposition party desperately wanted President Muhammadu Buhari to sign the 2018 Electoral Amendment Bill.

He said, “The Act we are using now was created by the PDP. They created a law and they are now afraid to use it. That does not sound right. The PDP is playing out what they designed in Dubai. They started with the labour strike on minimum wage in order to cause problems in the country but it did not work; they brought ASUU strike, it did not work and then they tried to instigate fuel scarcity which also did not work.
