APC National Secretary, Lai Mohammed, has said PDP supporters in the South West are working with the OPC to deliver the zone to President Jonathan at all cost.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and the supporters of President Goodluck Jonathan in the South West of planning to make the March 28 elections in the geo-political zone inconclusive, having realized that they cannot deliver the zone to the PDP as they have promised.
According to a statement by the APC National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, in Lagos on Sunday, March 22; the party said the plot was conceived at a meeting held in the Ondo State Government House on March 13.
It said those planning to disrupt the elections are working in cahoots with the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC), and they have trained and armed a number of youths with guns and other weapons, in addition to providing many of them with military and police uniforms, which we earlier said were being sewn in the capital of a state in the South West.
APC said the highly-disruptive and armed protest by the OPC in Lagos on March 16 was a dress rehearsal for the plan to be executed across the states in the South-west.
The party also said the PDP has compiled and forwarded to the Police Anti-Cult Squad the names of APC youths in all the Wards in Ondo State so they can be arrested and locked up before, during and after the elections, to give the PDP and its cohorts the free rein to carry out their nefarious activities.
”As a matter of fact, funds have been provided to the Police Anti-Cult Squad to expand its detention facility, and work is going on at the facility as we write. The reason for these actions is that, despite the massive infusion of illicit funds to bribe individuals and groups in the South West, the PDP and its agents in the region have realized that their strategy has backfired and even given the people more impetus to vote against the ruling party,” the statement said.
