APC: PDP Has Realised That The 2019 Election Has Been Won And Lost

Although there are still months to the 2019 elections, the All Progressives Congress (APC) says the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is aware the elections have already been won and lost.

The ruling party said this on Friday in a statement released by Yekini Nabena, its acting National Publicity Secretary.

In the statement, it also accused Senate President Bukola Saraki and the PDP of sabotaging the executive, specifically the Independent National Electoral Commission (NEC).

It accused the duo of hiding under the Electoral Amendment Bill, which the President has yet to assent to, to draw attention away from the plot to frustrate INEC from organising credible elections in 2019.

“The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP’s) attempt to hide under the yet-to-be assented Electoral Act Amendment bill is an attempt to draw attention away from the treasonable actions of the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, who has refused to convene the National Assembly to consider at plenary the crucial 2019 Election Budget of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC),” read the statement.

“The Electoral Amendment Bill passed by the National Assembly is alive and awaiting assent. However, assent to bills in all democratic governments reflects the prudence and discretion of the president in balancing the powers of key constitutional bodies and understanding the concerns of the executive.

“While we strongly condemn the abuse of office by the Senate President backed by his PDP cohorts in sabotaging the executive, specifically INEC, all well-meaning Nigerians have a duty to speak up and ensure that the National Assembly performs its constitutional role and not serve an individual’s personal interest and sinister ends of the opposition PDP.

“We call on all Nigerians, civil society and indeed the international community to resist the ongoing travesty and legislative rascality being perpetuated by the Senate President and the PDP. The sanctity of our electoral system is being threatened by this orchestrated sabotage and deliberate attempt to weaken INEC as we prepare for General Elections in 2019. The National Assembly must be convened immediately.

“Meanwhile, the PDP has realised that the 2019 elections has been won and lost. If the election is held today, it is clear that the APC will win by a landslide, judging by visible and landmark achievements recorded by the President Buhari administration. This is an apparent fact that gives the PDP sleepless nights, hence its daily lies and propaganda in its desperate, failed and early campaign to attract non- existent votes.”
