The All Progressives Congress (APC) has revealed that following alleged leaked confidential report by the foreign elections strategists/consultants contracted by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) which stated that the PDP’s presidential candidate, Alh. Atiku Abubakar, will lose the forthcoming elections, the party had received credible intelligence against the party.
A statement made yesterday night being Thursday, 14th Febuary 2019 by Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, APC National Publicity Secretary, said orchestrated arson attacks on some facilities of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), syndicated fake news and planted false reports on the elections were part of the PDP’s strategies ahead of the Elections.
The spokesman was of the view that the confidential report by the foreign elections strategists/consultants has recommended that the PDP take “urgent steps to rectify the situation”.
He went further to state that:
“At the PDP’s strategy meeting held a few hours ago, the opposition party resolved to monetarily induce major actors and institutions in the electoral process with a view to compromising them ahead of the elections.
“In this regard, the main opposition party has perfected plans to share money to persons and actors considered critical to the success of the elections.
“The PDP has also perfected plans to distribute between 5 and 10 million dollars to the States for “logistics and mobilization” on election day.
“PDP’s targets in the well-oiled machinery are INEC officials, security agencies and observers. This is expected to make such persons agreeable to their rigging plots and other evil machinations
“The PDP is also using faceless bloggers to attack frontline security agencies in the social media as part of their plan to discredit the agencies.
“We must all be on high alert and resist this real and imminent threat posed by the PDP’s uncovered plans during the elections.”
