PDP hits back at suggestions it is not ready for poll

2015-01-30 09:54

Abuja - The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has denied accusations by the main opposition party it plotted to scuttle the holding of general elections next month.

The former said instead, the All Progressives Congress (APC), which is seen as its main rival in the polls, was not ready for the election hence the unfounded claims of plots to scuttle the poll.

“These are a clear confirmation that the opposition party is not ready for the polls,” PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, said.

“The APC and its Presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari are now frustrated that they could not present an alternative to the PDP and President Goodluck Jonathan and as such have resorted to fabrication of baseless stories in an attempt to heat-up the polity and divert attention from their failure.”

Metuh added that the ruling party has run a superior campaign with its record of achievements and roadmap for a more prosperous Nigeria.

He said the party reassured that it is ready for the elections and urged Nigerians to turn out en-masse and vote for it on February 14.

Metuh also advised the APC to concede defeat.

“Its campaigns have already exposed its emptiness and lack of integrity to Nigerians.”

APC has mainly expressed readiness to contest the polls despite some challenges around preparations for the process.

The major issue has been the failure by some potential voters to receive their permanent cards from the Independent National Electoral Commission and terror in some parts of the country displacing scores of people.
