The opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party, on Friday spoke on the reaction of the All progressives Congress to the interview granted by the Independent National Electoral Commission over the report that results from the Presidential election was transmitted on the server of the electoral body, claimed that it is a sign of anxiety.
The party stated that the interview which has gone viral and been denied by INEC and the President Buhari’s administration is plotted towards distracting the Presidential election petitions tribunal.
The spokesperson of the party, Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement released on Thursday stated that the presidency is trying to divert the public attention by engaging in judicial interpretations and attacking the presidential candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar.
“The lesson for all in the latest episode is in the undying verity that no matter how long falsehood appears to thrive, the truth will always come to light and prevail at the end of the day”.
“Instead of this pitiable resort to frenetic and chaotic play to the gallery, the PDP counsels President Buhari and his team to focus on facing the course of justice at the tribunal.”
“The PDP further advises President Buhari and his team to curtail their desperation and respect the sanctity and integrity of the Court of Appeal by ending their externalization of proceedings, which has been their calculated scheme to distract the court and derail the course of Justice.”
“The PDP and our candidate, Atiku Abubakar, are full of respect for the court and will never join President Buhari’s team in engaging in actions that tend to undermine independence and sanctity of the judiciary.”
“Our party stands firmly with Nigerians in our determination to retrieve our stolen mandate in the court and no amount of shenanigans by the APC and the Buhari team will distract us or detract from the resolve of Nigerians in their expectation of the triumph of their will at the tribunal.”
