The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked Nigerians to hold President Muhammadu Buhari responsible for any electoral crisis. 

This follows the President’s statement during the caucus meeting of the All Progressives Congress (APC) ordering security operatives to “deal ruthlessly” with anyone who attempts to snatch ballot box during the rescheduled general elections next Saturday, February 23, 2019.

In a statement by the spokesman of the party, Kola Ologbondiyan, says, “We want Nigerians and the international community to hold President Buhari personally responsible for any electoral crisis.

The PDP accused the President and the APC of plots to trigger widespread political crisis “to derail our democratic process and plunge our nation into anarchy”.

According to them the President’s statement is a direct call for jungle justice and attempt to divert public attention from their closed session.

“We do hope that this call by President Buhari is not camouflaged for the fake soldiers mobilized by the APC to shoot at innocent Nigerians, snatch ballot boxes and execute their rigging plans on the election day. It is indeed a license to kill, which should not come from any leader of any civilized nation.

“The underlining fact to the above is that President Buhari and APC leaders, upon getting to their voting constituencies last Saturday, realized that there is a nationwide rejection of Buhari’s re-election bid, and this has thrown them into a panic mode.

“We are aware that President Buhari, who had earlier boasted that nobody can ‘unseat’ him, is bent on using every dictatorial and tyrannical act to truncate the process of a free, fair and credible election”.

The PDP also alleged there have been moved by the presidency to reshuffle the Resident Electoral Commissioners (RECs) in order to deploy compromised officials to manipulate the electoral process in favour of the APC.

“Our party is also aware of the pressure being mounted by the Buhari Presidency on INEC to cancel elections in some states and make others inconclusive so as to achieve President Buhari’s objectives of a staggered election not minding the crisis such will trigger across the federation.

Nevertheless, the PDP wants to assure President Buhari that our nation is bigger than him and that Nigerians will never allow him and the APC to rig this election.

He called on the international community, as well as local and “foreign observers to the Nigeria election to note the emerging undemocratic dispositions and threats from both the President and the APC.”
