The INEC server allegation made by the All Progressives Congress (APC) against the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has been described by the opposition party as a smear campaign, which sends a signal that the ruling party is jittery.
Kola Ologbondiyan, the spokesperson for the PDP, has asked the Ruling party to stop “their unnecessary fabrications, smear campaign and prepare to face its legal team at the Presidential election tribunal”.
According to the statement by the PDP, the party claimed that President Buhari is overweighed by the “burden of illegitimacy”.
The party alleged that the claims by the APC are an attempt at blackmailing the tribunal by engaging in clear acts of subjudice.
Further claims were by the PDP, that the facts and issues concerning he INEC Server are already within the public’s domain and the Nigerian people are already at home with them.
“By resorting to shadow-boxing outside the tribunal, President Buhari and the APC have shown that they have no defence to present to the court against PDP’s submission that they stole our mandate.
“It is even more appalling that Festus Keyamo, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) and a member of Buhari’s legal team, who should know better, would engage in this act of subjudice designed to distort facts already known to Nigerians, that our Presidential Candidate and former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, clearly won the February 23 Presidential election,” the party said.
The PDP, asked the president to surrender to its candidate Atiku Abubakar, claiming that the ruling APC has no defence to present to the court.
