- The All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused that the PDP and Atiku Abubakar are planning to release fake results
- The party through its director of communication, Festus Keyamo, said the plan to do so carried out in Dubai
- Keyamo also said the PDP is working on causing mayhem in the country like the situation going on in Venezuela
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Atiku Abubakar of concluding plans to release fake results on the presidential election.
The plan to do so, the party claimed was perfected in Dubai with the aim of causing unrest in the polity, The Nation reports.
The director of the strategic communications of the APC presidential campaign council, Barrister Festes Keyamo, made this known on Sunday, February 24, while he said the PDP is also planning to cause a Venezuela situation in the country.
It said: “Devastated by authentic results filtering out of polling units nationwide, our usual sources within the camp of the PDP have informed us that an emergency meeting of the main opposition party has been summoned for today somewhere in Abuja.
“Top on the agenda of the PDP is to activate the last strand of their Dubai strategies that have since collapsed like a pack of cards: they plan to release fake results of the Presidential Election later today or early Monday morning that they claim to have compiled themselves.
“Our information is that they aim to create crises and confusion that will lead to Alhaji Atiku Abubakar claiming victory in a day or two from today ahead of the official announcement of the results by INEC.
“Then, what would follow will be some carefully choreographed protests by pockets of hoodlums in some parts of the country. The ultimate aim is to curry the sympathy of our foreign friends and push us to the Venezuela situation.”
The statement went ahead to call on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and all security agencies to be alert against any fake result.
It added: “In preparation for this reckless move, some PDP social media agents are already flying some kites on-line as to the number of States allegedly ‘won’ by PDP.
“In fact, Alhaji Buba Galadima, an official spokesperson for Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has made a short video announcing PDP as the ‘winner’ of the Presidential Election.
“As an official spokesperson, he is clearly acting on behalf of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and on his instruction.”
