- The APC called on security agencies to stop Atiku from carrying out his evil plot
- The party was reacting to claims by Atiku that the PDP won the presidential election by 1.6 million votes
- According to the ruling party, Atiku and the PDP have slipped into severe depression and post-defeat hallucination
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has reacted to the Peoples Democratic Party’s claim that they won the presidential election by 1.6 million votes.
The APC in a statement signed by its national publicity secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, on Wednesday, March 20, said the claim by the PDP showed the party and its candidate, Atiku Abubakar, have slipped into post-election depression.
The APC also expressed concern over the PDP’s claim to have access to the server of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) saying this showed the opposition party is bent on destroying the commission’s database.
The party called on security operatives to stop Atiku and his party from “carrying out their evil plans.”
The APC said: "Following the outcome of the Presidential Election, during which a vast majority of Nigerians reaffirmed their unshaken belief in President Muhammadu Buhari to continue to steer the affairs of the country for another four years, we have watched in disbelief and utter amusement how the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its Presidential Candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, have engaged in series of circus shows to cheer up their crestfallen and disillusioned members.
"While the APC is not oblivious of the PDP’s antics to discredit the credible presidential electoral process, acknowledged by local and international observers, we sympathise with Atiku for the crushing defeat handed him by President Buhari through the votes of Nigerians.
"Judging by Atiku and PDP’s recent utterances and actions, it is now clear that they have slipped into severe depression and post-defeat hallucination that have left many Nigerians questioning their current state of mind."
According to the party, Atiku's claim that the server of the INEC indicated he 'won' the Presidential Election by 1.6million votes is ridiculous.
"A few questions would suffice: Is this phantom figure of 1.6million votes Dubai-invented? Was the result sold to Atiku by his numerous marabouts, who we understand, had assured him that the last election was a done deal for him?
"Most importantly, we note Atiku’s consistent reference to the "INEC server" as if he is the custodian of that platform. Indeed, Atiku’s constant reference to the INEC server should raise concerns as it is becoming apparent that he and the PDP are up for some dastard activities that are targeted at jeopardizing the INEC database and internal storage system. We recall the widespread reported cases of several programmed card readers that were retrieved from some PDP agents and their failed attempt to hack the INEC database in the leadup to the then postponed presidential election," the party stated.
The APC called INEC and security agencies to be on alert to ensure that Atiku and the PDP are not able to execute their evil plans.
Meanwhile, the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the PDP has summoned an emergency meeting ahead of the supplementary governorship elections scheduled for Saturday, March 23.
The party summoned the meeting on Wednesday, March 20, to discuss issues relating to the Saturday elections.
