The All Progressives Congress (APC) has warned against any last-minute disqualification of its Presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari.

The party stated this on Tuesday, March 24, via a statement released by its National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed.

The statement reads:

“If it is true, as it is being widely speculated across the country, that the Jonathan Administration has procured a judgment to disqualify the APC Presidential Candidate on Wednesday, when the Federal High Court in Abuja is expected to rule on the issue, then it portends a great danger for our country.”

“Anyone who will disqualify a presidential candidate on the eve of an election can only have one and only one purpose for that: to trigger chaos and pandemonium across the country. Perhaps this is the reason for the deployment of troops across the country to crack down on possible protests and create confusion.”

“Then, those who orchestrated the disqualification will simply use what they expect to be angry reactions nationwide as an excuse to postpone the elections again, thus triggering a constitutional crisis, the end of which no one can predict.”

“This is why we are hoping that good reason will prevail and nothing will be done, deliberately, to plunge Nigeria into crisis by the same people who have always been quick to say their political ambition is not worth the blood of any Nigerian.”

A court which was hearing a suit seeking Buhari’s dismissal has adjourned the case to Wednesday, March 25.
