Abuja, Nigeria: The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has mocked the All Progressives Congress (APC) following the pelting incident which marred the ruling Party’s rally in Ogun state on Monday.

According to the opposition party, the violence which marred the APC campaign in Ogun is a sign that the people have rejected them.

In a statement by PDP spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party said the public pelting and jeering at President Muhammadu Buhari and other key members of the APC is a direct response by Nigerians to the outcome of his four years in office.

The Party said the people of Ogun state, and indeed, the South West, have shown that they are in direct alignment with other states and geopolitical zones of the country our country in rejecting misrule, injustice, pain and anguish.

“Mr President can now see that Nigerians cannot be bought with N10,000, as he was made to believe by Prof. Osinbajo and members of the cabal in his Presidency.

“After the unpalatable encounters in all his rallies, Mr President needs no further signal to show him that the people have completely rejected him, despite his false performance indices. Nigerians are determined to deal him a crushing defeat on February 16 by voting en masse for the people’s candidate, Atiku Abubakar, as the next President of our country.”

The PDP said that in contrast to the outcomes of the APC rallies, it’s candidate Atiku Abubakar’s campaign has continued to receive rousing reception in all parts of the country, adding that Nigerians will have a breath of fresh air under his leadership.

Press Statement

PDP to Buhari: Your Abeokuta Pelting, Sign of Rejection

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says the public pelting and jeering at President Muhammadu Buhari and his All Progressives Congress (APC),during his election campaign rally in Abeokuta, Ogun state, is a direct
response by Nigerians to his four years misrule as depicted in the expansion of poverty, corruption, divisiveness and bloodletting in our nation.

It is instructive to note that Mr. President was pelted in Abeokuta barely 24 hours after his Zamfara state rally on Sunday, where he attempted to incite Nigerians to join the APC in their planned resort to violence to derail the 2019 general election, having realized that they stand no chance of winning the election.

The people of Ogun state, and indeed, the South West, have shown that they are in direct alignment with other states and geo-political zones of our country in rejecting President Buhari and Vice President Yemi
Osinbajo, whose administration has foisted so much injustice and brought unprecedented pain and anguish to Nigerians.

Mr. President can now see that Nigerians cannot be bought with N10,000, as he was made to believe by Prof. Osinbajo and members of the cabal in his Presidency.

After the unpalatable encounters in all his rallies, Mr. President needs no further signal to show him that the people have completely rejected him, despite his false performance indices. Nigerians are determined to
deal him a crushing defeat on February 16 by voting enmasse for thepeople’s candidate, Atiku Abubakar, as the next President of our country.

The PDP therefore urges President Buhari and the APC to read the handwriting on the wall and get ready to accept his inevitable defeat so that Nigerians can have a breath of fresh air under the leadership of
Atiku Abubakar, whose campaign has continued to receive rousing reception in all parts of the country.
