PDP mocks Buhari over ‘failed’ Abuja rally




The Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP ) has mocked President Muhammadu Buhari over what it described as “scanty attendance” at his campaign rally in Abuja on Wednesday.

The main opposition party said the event was a parody and further indication to the President and the governing All Progressives Congress (APC) Nigerians have rejected them ahead of Saturday’s presidential election.

A statement on Wednesday by the spokesman for the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, also said the scanty attendance at most of President Buhari’s rallies in various parts of the country has further revealed the APC only fabricated figures in its claims that 14.8 of its members voted for the President at the flawed convention.

The PDP said: “Nigerians can now further see that the figures were concocted by APC leaders to give an impression that President Buhari has massive support across the country, as well as use it as basis to allocate fictitious figures for him in the Presidential election.

“President Buhari, who was pelted by Nigerians at his campaign rally in Ogun state on Monday, again slurred at the Abuja rally and, as usual, could not even articulate any meaningful message for his very scanty audience at the Eagle Square in Abuja.

“The PDP says the failed rallies, should serve as an ample signal to President Buhari and the APC that Nigerians have moved ahead in rallying with the people’s candidate, Atiku Abubakar, and no amount of enticement or intimidation can change that resolve.

“The PDP therefore urge compromised officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and our security agencies to note the tide and extricate themselves from any form of entanglement or pact to rig the elections for President Buhari, as they will be doing so at their own peril”.
