APC rubbishes PDP's 'childish conspiracy theories'

03 January 2016, 20:33

Abuja – The All Progressives Congress (APC) has hit back at the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), saying it won’t be distracted by its antics, after the PDP accused it of targeting members, according to Punch.

The PDP  accused President Muhammadu Buhari and his ruling party of persecuting its members.

The party also claimed that Buhari had moved to direct security agents to be more vicious in dealing with its members.

The PDP said Buhari and his party were using the anti-corruption campaign to "target and destroy it" so that "it (ACP) can push through Buhari’s second tenure in 2019 without opposition from PDP".

The PDP added that the Federal Government was persecuting, and not prosecuting, Colonel Sambo Dasuki as it feared that the former National Security Adviser could be harbouring a presidential ambition.

But in a statement, National Chairperson of the APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun rubbished what it called PDP’s "childish conspiracy theories", adding that while it would not join issues with the opposition, it would not shy away from setting the records straight, the report said.

"Whoever the PDP picks as its candidate for the 2019 presidential election is not the business of the APC. Relevant laws in the country clearly spell out requirements for persons seeking election into all political office. The preoccupation of the APC and President Muhammadu Buhari is to deliver on all the promises made to Nigerians by the party during the 2015 election,” Odigie-Oyegun was quoted as saying.
