The party in a statement issued in Lagos on Tuesday by its National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, said the PDP is throwing wild allegations against the tribunals in Rivers and other states because the party knows it stole the votes in these states.
He said the PDP is jittery of losing these states because these states are the cash cows of the PDP.
He said the APC has confidence in the ability of the tribunals to carry out their duties diligently and without fear or favour
He urged the PDP to be charitable enough to repose the same confidence in the tribunals.
