The spokesperson for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) campaign organization, Femi Fani-Kayode has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of plotting a military intervention if its Presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari doesn’t win the upcoming election.

Fani-Kayode stated further that the APC plans to mobilize Nigerians to demand the said intervention if Buhari’s opponent, President Goodluck Jonathan emerges victorious.

The PDP spokesperson said that the details of the alleged plot were contained in a nine-minute video produced by the APC, which he said contained ridiculous allegations against Jonathan and members of his cabinet.

Fani-Kayode made the comments via a statement released on Monday, March 23.

It reads:

“They also specifically asked for the targeting and assassination of key members of this administration and a number of its supporters in the event of a Jonathan victory in the coming elections.”

“We say in clear terms that the video in question and the intentions of those behind it is reprehensible, irresponsible and it is unacceptable.”

“We wish to take this opportunity to let the APC know that under no circumstances will we allow them to rob us of our legitimate mandate, which, hopefully, will be legitimately and freely given to the President by the Nigerian people on March 28.”

“We will not also tolerate any act of violence or any attempt to assassinate anybody by their agents in the event of us winning and neither will the people of this country ever allow another military intervention.”

 “They made all kinds of allegations, including the alleged relationship between the President of Chad, the President of Nigeria and Ali Modu Sheriff. Needless to say these allegations are baseless and they are simply unbelievable.”

“Again, a lot of foreign footage is contained in the video, which suggests that there is an international dimension to the production.

“This confirms our fears and belief that the APC is being sponsored primarily by money from foreign countries and by agents of foreign governments that are hostile to the interest of our beloved nation, Nigeria.”

Fani-Kayode had earlier accused Buhari and the APC of receiving funds from terror groups like ISIS and Al Qaeda.
