Corrupt persons are mobilizing and ganging up to use their illicit wealth to install President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress come 2019, the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Prince Uche Secondus purportedly said.
He said the APC had made itself a safe haven for corrupt persons and they were converging there not only to get relief but to help install them come 2019 for more protection.
The National Chairman, who spoke at the PDP National campaign office at Legacy House, Maitama during the inauguration of the party’s campaign council for Osun State September 22, gubernatorial election, said that the worst form of corruption was rigging of election and buying of votes which the APC was perpetuating in the polity.
According to a statement from his media office signed by Ike Abonyi, Prince Secondus warned that the PDP would not tolerate the charade that happened in Ekiti state in July to repeat itself in Osun state.
“Enough is enough, PDP will not tolerate Osun being rigged like Ekiti, we have a popular candidate and the performance of the APC ruling government has been awful with months of salaries owned to workers.
“We are aware that the electoral commission that is supposed to operate as an unbiased umpire in the conduct of elections has suddenly made itself a parastatal of the federal government, conniving with APC and security agencies to exchange results.
“Even security agencies whose allegiance should be to the constitution and people of Nigeria have allowed itself to behave as if they are operatives of the ruling APC.
“We decided to set up this high powered committee to demonstrate the importance we attach to this election, all our Presidential aspirants and some state governors are members plus all other critical stakeholders from South West and other parts of the country,” he said.
