PDP raises alarm over alleged ploy by APC to freeze accounts of its stalwarts
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has laid allegations against the President, Muhammadu Buhari, and All Progressives Congress (APC), stating that there is an elaborate plan to freeze the accounts of certain stakeholders of its party ahead of the forthcoming 2019 election.
The press statement released 14 November 2018 by Kola Ologbondiyan, National Publicity Secretary PDP, reads:
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) alerts of moves by the Muhammadu Buhari Presidency and the All Progressives Congress (APC) to procure frivolous court orders from compromised judicial officers to garnishee accounts belonging to PDP and critical stakeholders, perceived to be against the President’s re-election bid.
The PDP is already aware of how instructions have been given to certain agencies of government to trail and throw up fabrications in order to create an impression of financial infractions around the said accounts.
Already, accounts belonging to critical stakeholders are being frisked with a view to have them liquidated ahead of the general elections.
It is clear that the only reason for this is to ensure that our party and candidates are deprived of access to funds for campaigns, but the APC and the Buhari Presidency fail to realize that the 2019 election is now a battle between them and Nigerians, who are the bastion of the PDP.
Nigerians have since taken over the saddle for the quest to rid the nation of this incompetent, vicious and vengeful administration, for which they are now freely making contributions and sacrifices. They have collectively resolved to vote out President Buhari and not even the
APC’s on-going vote-buying strategy and intimidation can scuttle that resolve.
