The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has cried out for help as the President Muhammadu Buhari government has concluded plan to starve the party of funds to execute its presiddntial campaign ahead of 2019 elections.
PDP alleged that the President and his political party, All Progressives Congress (APC) will soon secure what it called ‘frivolous court orders’ from compromised judicial officers to liquidate accounts belonging to PDP and critical stakeholders, perceived to be against the President’s re-election bid.
In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP said that it is aware of how instructions had been given to certain agencies of government to trail and throw up fabrications in order to create an impression of financial infractions around the said accounts.
The statement said that accounts belonging to critical stakeholders are already being frisked with a view to having them liquidated ahead of the general elections, saying: “it is clear that the only reason for this is to ensure that our party and candidates are deprived of access to funds for campaigns, but the APC and the Buhari Presidency fail to realize that the 2019 election is now a battle between them and Nigerians, who are the bastion of the PDP.
“Nigerians have since taken over the saddle for the quest to rid the nation of this incompetent, vicious and vengeful administration, for which they are now freely making contributions and sacrifices. “They have collectively resolved to vote out President Buhari and not even the APC’s on-going vote-buying strategy and intimidation can scuttle that resolve.”
