The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has alleged plots by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to influence the outcome of petition before the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal.
It claimed the APC was apprehensive given the weight of evidence against its candidate and refusal of majority of Nigerians to accept the outcome of the February 25 poll.
At a press briefing in Abuja, PDP National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba, alleged intimidation, harassment, threats and vicious attacks by APC leaders against Nigerian youths and eminent Nigerian personalities following the petition.
“There are apprehensions in the public space, having regards to the reputation of certain individuals within the highest level of the APC who have demonstrated capacity and proclivity to compromise democratic institutions in our country.
“The PDP calls on the APC and its leaders to immediately come clean and publicly address Nigerians and the world on these disturbing allegations and revelations which are already in the public domain. Further to this is the provocative resort by the APC and its leaders to threaten Nigerians with treason for speaking out against the manipulations of our democratic processes by the APC”, the PDP National Publicity Secretary said.
While expressing confidence in the judiciary, the PDP said the will of the people as expressed at the polling units in the February 25, 2023 presidential election mudt be upheld.
