The opposition People’s Democratic Party PDP has slammed the Minister of Information and Culture Alhaji Lai Mohammed over calls he made calling for the deregistration of the PDP.
Kola Ologbondiyan party scribe in a statement said it was clear that the APC and its federal government have come to their wits end, and looking for ways to strangle the opposition by all means.
“We want to alert all Nigerians of a clandestine plot by the APC-led federal government to strangulate the main opposition party and plot the way for the self-succession plan of their candidate, President Muhammadu Buhari.
“Our party has been following all the schemes and shenanigans of the APC as 2019 general elections draw nearer.
“The main plank of the plot is to ensure that President Buhari runs as a sole candidate in 2019. To achieve this grand plan, they must work to exterminate all known and perceived political opposition platforms in our country.
“Is it not strange that a party who, in its almost five years of existence, cannot constitute a Board of Trustees (BoT) in line with the provisions of its own constitution will be asking INEC to withdraw the certificate of a party whose all organs are intact and effectively functioning?
“Is it not also laughable that a party, who cannot hold even a non-elective convention, will be calling for the withdrawal of PDP’s certificate?” he asked.
