The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has said that the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is threatening to boycott the 2019 general election because Nigerians have rejected it.
He added that Nigerians rejected the PDP for 16 years of “absolute misrule” and the party’s life has therefore come to an end.
The APC chaitman made this known at the party secretariat in Abuja when the Chairman of the Osun State Primary Election Committee and Governor of Zamfara State, Abdulaziz Yari, submitted the result of the election.
He described as false the allegations by PDP top players that the APC-led Federal Government was threatening them.

Oshiomhole noted that the APC defeated them in 2015 while they still had everything going for them and so could not be threatening them now that they are a divided house.
The APC boss reaffirmed the party’s commitment to democracy, noting that democracy was not at the mercy of any political party.
He said, “Let me also use this opportunity to comment on what I read about… I saw the PDP chairman threatening that they may boycott the 2019 election.
Speaking on the upcoming Osun gubernatorial election, Oshiomhole said the Ekiti example would be replicated in Osun.
