Buhari’s campaign council accuses PDP of planning to release fake results
The Presidential Campaign Council of the All Progressives Congress has called on security agents to arrest a Peoples Democratic Party’s chieftain, Alhaji Buba Galadima, over alleged plan to release fake presidential results.
According to the coincic, the plan was concocted at the strategy meeting of the PDP in Dubai, which was meant to mobilise hoodlums for choreographed protests.
Speaking through a statement on Sunday, the Spokesperson for the council, Festus Keyamo, (SAN), said the PDP had become devastated by the authentic results filtering out of polling units nationwide.
He said, “Our usual sources within the camp of the PDP have informed us that an emergency meeting of the main opposition party has been summoned for today somewhere in Abuja.
“Top on the agenda of the PDP is to activate the last strand of their Dubai strategies that have since collapsed like a pack of cards: they plan to release fake results of the presidential election later today (Sunday) or early Monday morning that they claim to have compiled themselves.
‘Our information is that they aim to create confusion that will lead to Alhaji Atiku Abubakar claiming victory in a day or two from today ahead of the official announcement of the results by INEC. Then, what would follow will be some carefully choreographed protests by pockets of hoodlums in some parts of the country. The ultimate aim is to curry the sympathy of our foreign friends and push us to the Venezuela situation.”
The council warned the opposition party not to flout the law on announcement of official results, stating that being a member of an opposition political party couldn’t confer immunity on anyone to flout the law.
The statement added that some PDP social media agents were already posting on the Internet some states allegedly ‘won’ by the PDP.
Keyamo said, “In fact, Alhaji Buba Galadima, an official spokesperson for Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has made a short video announcing PDP as the ‘winner’ of the presidential election. As an official spokesperson, he is clearly acting on behalf of Atiku and on his instruction. We, therefore call for the immediate arrest, interrogation and prosecution of Galadima in this regard. The world is watching and waiting on Atiku Abubakar to say something on the video by Galadima,” the statement read.
