APC ‘Plotting’ To Use Lawmakers To Scuttle Elections – PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has raised the alarm over alleged plot by All Progressives Congress (APC) to use some of its lawmakers at the National Assembly to disrupt the 2023 general elections.

The party also urged the National Assembly to investigate N22.5 billion alleged cash swap deal by the APC.

The opposition party accused the APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu of alleged plot to derail the 2023 general elections and put Nigerian democracy in jeopardy.

In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba, Wednesday, the opposition party alleged that some members in both Senate and House of Representatives were being recruited to create tension in the polity and derail the conduct of the elections.

“There is credible intelligence of how the APC Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu allegedly directed his cronies in the APC leadership of both Houses of the National Assembly to reconvene Plenary and use the Legislative Chambers as platforms to promote incendiary speeches with the view to overheating the polity and making it appear unconducive to conduct elections in the country.


“This is in furtherance of the alleged scheme by the APC Presidential Campaign to use all means including APC leadership of the National Assembly to orchestrate security situations that will justify its reported demands to postpone elections as a prelude to the derailment of the electoral process, having realized that it has no chance in the elections.

“Our Party has been made aware of a deceptive design by the APC leadership in both Chambers of the National Assembly to reconvene Plenary under the guise of being concerned about the hardship faced by Nigerians due to the scarcity of new Naira notes induced and aggravated by the exposed sinister diversion of new Naira notes by the Tinubu campaign.”
