PDP Dares APC: You Are Afraid of Sambo Dasuki Becoming President In 2019

President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption crusade has been described as a war between the ruling party, All Progressives Congress and the major opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party.

In a statement issued on Saturday the PDP claimed that President Buhari and the APC were using ongoing fight against corruption to target and destroy their party.
“It is sad and embarrassing that President Buhari’s anti-corruption crusade has now been reduced to a war between the APC and the PDP as declared by the office of his spokespersons. Since they have confirmed that this is what the anti-corruption crusade is all about, the APC is obviously seeking to destroy the PDP so that it can push through Buhari’s second tenure in 2019 without opposition from the PDP. 
“This has also confirmed our concern that this is the reason the Federal Government is persecuting, and not prosecuting, Col. Sambo Dasuki. The APC and its leaders fear that Dasuki, given his vast political and security network, may be harbouring a presidential ambition, more so that the PDP has zoned its presidential ticket to the north.” 
PDP said in the statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh.
The party noted that they were aware of an alleged “sinister plan by the APC-led Federal Government to completely decimate our party” by raking up corruption charges against the ex-President Goodluck Jonathan administration and leaders of the PDP with a view to taking them to court on orchestrated charges.

Metuh claimed further that President Buhari had directed security agencies to be more vicious in dealing with PDP members, adding that the Presidency had allegedly continued to “subtly coerce the judiciary to convict those being charged to court.”

“But what gives us joy is that President Buhari is not God and we will not worship him,” he said.

The APC National Chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun, had lambasted the PDP for insulting President Buhari in spite of the fact that they were not provoked. He said such attacks are not necessary.
