The All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council (APCPCC) has raised the alarm to the effect that the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), through their surrogates, are planning to eliminate its Presidential flag bearer, General Muhammad Buhari, as showcased in the wrap-around front-page paid advertisements in some national dailies.
The APC Presidential Campaign Council said in a statement in Abuja on Monday that it is bewildered by plans of the PDP and their surrogates to be plotting the death of Buhari ahead of the February 14 presidential poll.
Consequently, the APC Presidential Campaign Council has called for an international inquiry into the plot to kill Buhari because of the danger it poses to Nigeria’s unity and democracy and by extension the stability of the West African sub-region.
“The insinuation that the leader of Nigeria’s Opposition should or may die ahead of the February 14 presidential polls is not only morbid and fatalistic, but drips of desperation and represents the pinnacle of political paranoia on the part of the incumbent government which has run out of favour with the populace after nearly six years of lacklustre performance,” the APCPCC said.
The Council describes as distasteful the paid advertisement by PDP Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, titled “Life and Death and Enough of State Burials…”, as “nothing but death plan by the government in power to scuttle the results of the election and prevent the APC from taking over the mantle of leadership of the country.”
