The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the Buhari Presidency of round-tripping the N45 million claimed to have been contributed by a shadowy group to buy the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential nomination form for President Muhammadu Buhari.
The party said President Buhari’s inability, as “Mr. Integrity”, to explain the registration status, membership and source of funding of the shadowy group exposes the charade in the latest failed endorsement stunt.
The PDP notes as laughable, that the Buhari Presidency does not realize that such stunts have become out-worn and cannot sway opinion in a country with citizens as enlightened as Nigerians.
Most Nigerians already know how some officials at the Buhari presidency, made up of corrupt individuals, racketeers and certificate forgers, hurriedly assembled the group and mobilised them with N45 million for the APC presidential nomination form, which was hiked to scare away other contestants.
How members of the group were settled for the stunt as well the issues and disagreements that arose from the deal are also known to many Nigerians.
What Mr. President’s handlers are hiding from him is the fact that Nigerians do not believe the falsehood that a set of individuals, facing the challenges of abysmally low purchasing power, put together a wholesome N45m to buy him a form.
Nigerians are still waiting for him to make public the proof of registration, membership, list of individual contributors and amount contributed by these shadowy individual members.
We also challenge President Buhari to make public the official correspondences of the 12 million members of the Rice Farmers Association, members of the Fertilizer Producers Association and the members of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association who, he claimed, offered to buy nomination form for him.
Moreover, the PDP described as unpresidential, the outbursts credited to President Buhari against those who left the APC noting that such was an unwarranted attack on innocent Nigerians whose only offence is that they chose to abandon his derelict sinking ship, APC.
Finally, the PDP counsels President Buhari to forget the idea of painting himself as a lover of youths and asking for funds from them, as his “lazy youth” comment and talking down on young persons not to contest against him in the 2019 election, amply convey his disdain for the Nigerian youths.

2019: The Economist, HSBC Verdict Against Buhari Confirms Our Stand, says PDP.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says the independent reports by The Economist, as well as that of the renowned multinational body, HSBC that the PDP will defeat President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 general elections confirms our position that Nigerians across board have rejected President Buhari ahead of the 2019 presidential election.
PDP says Buhari rejection is predicated on his abysmal failure and the deception of his All Progressives Congress (APC) in the last three years.
The party further said the findings by the two credible organizations that President Buhari stands no chance in the general elections and that his winning portends grave danger for our nation, is completely in tandem with the stand of majority of Nigerians, irrespective of their current political party affiliations, ethnicity or creed.
The party notes that in line with the reports, Nigerians are fed up with President Buhari mainly due to the incompetence and unprecedented corruption in his Presidency, resulting in the ruining of our once robust economy, with attendant mass job loss, ravaging hunger, starvation and disease, as well as escalated insecurity, with documented mass killings, violation of human rights and daily bloodletting in various parts of our country, a development that has put the unity of our great country at risk.
Moreover, the finding by the two bodies that a second term for President Buhari will worsen our nation’s economic and security woes is a position also held by Nigerians across board, hence their determination to rally on the platform of the repositioned PDP, with our array of very popular Presidential aspirants, to vote him out in 2019.
The world now knows the major reason the Buhari-led APC administration has resorted to harassment and vicious attacks on the opposition, using trumped-up charges; the various assaults on the institution of the Judiciary and the National Assembly, as well as unrelenting machination to compromise the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to rig the elections.
This is the reason President Buhari rejected the amendment to the Electoral Act passed by the National Assembly, which practically checks all APC’s rigging strategies ahead of the 2019 general elections and for which Nigerians have approved that the legislators should override his veto.
The fear of imminent defeat is the reason President Buhari is against the amendment that checked the use of underage voters, provided for online publication of voter register in addition to instant transmission of results from the polling to collation center, thus eliminating interferences and planned alteration of results by the APC.
Nigerians are already aware that this is why APC and INEC have been conniving to secretly create 30,000 illegal polling units in remote non-descript areas, as well as registration of compromised observers to validate their machinations.
Now that Mr. President is aware that his approval rating among Nigerians and across the world has hit the rocks despite the many choreographed endorsement stunts by his handlers, the PDP urges him to rein in his lackeys, bury the idea of rigging the elections and get ready to accept an inevitable defeat as Nigerians are not ready to be dragged into an unnecessary political crisis for any person’s selfish ambition.
