The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, has claimed the All Progressives Congress (APC) is panicking over the case instituted before the tribunal by it and Atiku Abubakar.
The APC Presidential Campaign Council on Monday asked the Nigeria Police Force and the Department of State Services to invite, interrogate and possibly prosecute leaders of the opposition PDP over what it described as their illegal access to the server of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The organisation’s Director, Strategic Communications, Festus Keyamo (SAN), made the call in a petition addressed to the acting Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu; and the Director-General of DSS, Yusuf Bichi.
Speaking with Punch, Uche Secondus said the national leadership of the PDP would not be intimidated.
He said both the APC and the President were afraid to defend their “rigging of the presidential election at the tribunal.”
He said, “It is obvious that the President and his party are afraid and are panicking as a result of the petition we filed at the tribunal.
“They failed in their clandestine moves to persuade us not to go to the tribunal. Now the reality has dawned on them that they have to defend the injustice they meted out to us and Nigerians now.
“Now, for election they claimed they won, they ought to have filed their defence at the tribunal and be eager to defend it.
“Why are they running to the DSS and the Police with the hope that they will force us to reveal our sources? Tell them to go to the tribunal and submit their evidence of winning the election.”
