The People’s Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organization (PPCO) on Wednesday challenged the All Progressives Congress (APC) to look inwards and see the array of drug barons, addicts, certificate forgers, money launderers and treasury looters that are assembled in the party and the recently inaugurated presidential campaign council.

The PDP also said that the assemblage of questionable characters in a party where their leader claims integrity is one of the puzzles that 2019 election will solve.

PPCO, in a statement by its Director, Media and Publicity, Kola Ologbondiyan, said that President Muhammadu Buhari’s malicious allegations against its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and his running mate, Peter Obi, over campaign funding, will not help him in next month’s general election.

“It is unfortunate that President Muhammadu Buhari, who daily tells Nigerians of his commitment to a free, fair, credible and peaceful polls as well as issue based campaign will, within the same breath, mandate the officials of his party and members of his campaign to be engaging in malicious, vengeful and hate-inclined statements against respectable Nigerians whose integrity, competence and capacity overshadow his.”

PPCO said that unlike President Buhari, the PDP presidential candidate and his running mate, have unbroken records of fulfilling responsibilities in all the offices they have occupied.

“They come with a trajectory of successes in their various engagements in public office and have never been indicted by any statutory authority or court of competent jurisdiction in any matter whatsoever,” it said.

PPCO, which said that APC has questionable characters in its party and campaign council, said, “We are therefore not surprised by the descent of the APC to this irresponsible level of allegation as a subterfuge to divert public attention from President Buhari’s rejection, failure in governance and schemes to manipulate the 2019 general elections.”

The party urged “President Buhari and the APC to refrain from dirty politics as such will not deliver them from the rejection by Nigerians.”
