PDP reacts To Army’s Freshly Commenced Operation Python Dance
The PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation (PPCO) has rejected the nationwide Military ‘Operation Python Dance’ ahead of the 2019 general elections, which the Army Boss, Tukur Buratai announced yesterday, describing it as a plan by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to use the military in rigging the elections.
Recall that In view of the security challenges anticipated in 2019 election approaches, the Nigerian Army, had announced the commencement of Exercise Egwu Eke III, otherwise known as Python Dance in all parts of the country
According to the Director Media and Publicity of the PPCO, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan in statement yesterday noted that the main aim was to unleash heavy security presence to intimidate, harass and instil fear in voters in PDP strongholds across the country and pave way for the “allocation of fictitious votes” to President Buhari and the APC.
The PPCO which said the APC was afraid of losing the polls, added that information available to it showed that some bigwigs in the ruling party were already perfecting rigging plans with compromised staff of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
“Our investigation shows that part of the plot is to use the military operation as a subterfuge to unleash heavy security presence to intimidate, harass and instill fear in voters in PDP strongholds across the country and pave the way for the allocation of fictitious votes to President Buhari and the APC.
