The All Progressives Congress (APC) has alleged that President Goodluck Jonathan and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are plotting to arrest APC leader, Bola Tinubu ahead of the upcoming general elections.

The opposition party claimed that Jonathan had instructed the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to arrest Tinubu on falsified charges in order for the PDP to have “undue advantage” at the polls.

The allegations were made on Saturday, March 21, by APC National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed during a press conference in Lagos.

“Without mincing words, we are aware that a red alert has been sent to the EFCC to arrest the National Leader of our party, the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on trumped-up charges anytime from now,” Mohammed said

“In addition, anyone who is suspected of being a financier of the APC is to be arrested, all in efforts to decapitate the main opposition party which is undoubtedly cruising to victory in the forthcoming elections,” he added.

 “As part of the offensive against the APC in the days ahead, there is a plan to freeze the accounts of companies, individuals and organizations believed to be financing the party, with the ultimate objective of crippling the party so it won’t be able to sustain its activities, like paying its agents on Election Day and other logistics,” the APC secretary said.

Mohammed also accused the PDP of displaying desperation due to fears that it could lose to the APC in the March 28 polls.
