The All Progressives Congress (APC) has urged the Federal Government to probe the strategic meeting between the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, and some leaders of the party in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The ruling party said there was more to the meeting than meets the eye, wondering if there were not enough conference rooms in the country for such meeting.
The Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the party, Yekini Nabena, made this known while interacting with newsmen on Monday.
He said, “There is more to the meeting that meets the eye. Nigeria has enough meeting/conference rooms, many of which meet international standards.
“It is therefore clear that the Dubai meeting was for other sinister political purposes ahead of the 2019 general elections.
“Our intelligence, anti-graft and security agencies must be awake to its responsibility of investigating the Dubai meeting.
“Cash-and-carry politicians must be prevented from moving illicit cash around to induce voters and sponsor election violence and rigging.
“Another round of election is here and it is not unlikely that they are playing a repeat performance, under the guise of holding a meeting in Dubai. Our security agencies should be on the watch for a stitch in time saves nine.”

“The reaction of the ruling party is to call on the security agencies to probe all those that attended the meetng. Is this not madness?”
