By Lateef Ibrahim

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has declared that the All Progressives Congress, APC, and the presidency should be held responsible for the reported plots to scuttle the conduct of the 2019 polls.
The PDP, in a statement yesterday, said that it came to that submission after reviewing recent developments, particularly the desperation being exhibited by the All Progressives Congress (APC) and agents of the presidency.
In the statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP stressed that its stance is predicated on the revelation by the National Security Adviser (NSA), Maj. Gen. Babagana Mongunu, that “some individuals that are not certain of their fate in the elections are plotting to precipitate widespread violence aimed at scuttling the conduct of the polls”.
It stated that by every evidence and material facts, the political party and candidate that are not certain of their fate in the election have proven to be the APC and its presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, who have continued to exhibit acts of frustration over fear of imminent electoral loss.
According to the statement, “After reviewing recent developments, particularly the desperation being exhibited by the All Progressives Congress (APC) and agents of the Buhari Presidency, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) submits that the APC and the Buhari Presidency should be held responsible for the reported plots to scuttle the conduct of the 2019 polls.
“The PDP stance is predicated on the revelation by the National Security Adviser (NSA), Maj. Gen. Babagana Mongunu, that “some individuals that are not certain of their fate in the elections are plotting to precipitate widespread violence aimed at scuttling the conduct of the polls”.
“By every evidence and material facts, the political party and candidate that are not certain of their fate in the election have proven to be the APC and its Presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, who have continued to exhibit acts of frustration over fear of imminent electoral loss.
“We are all witnesses to the series of warnings to the Buhari Presidency, from prominent Nigerians citizens and topmost members of the international community, including the United States, United Kingdom, the United Nations, and the European Union, against actions that are inimical to the smooth conduct of the general elections.
“It is instructive to note that instead of heeding this warning, the Buhari Presidency and the APC, in their arrogance and desperation, resorted to blackmailing and vilifying the international community, thereby further confirming that they are not ready for a peaceful, free and fair election.
“Except the NSA is addressing facts known to Nigerians that as a result of losses already suffered by the APC on account of court judgments stopping it from participating in the elections in some states, due to its flawed primaries, some desperate leaders and members of the ruling party are making discreet arrangements to scuttle the polls.
