The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode has confirmed that the All Progressives Congress (APC) consists of fraudsters and election riggers.
The opposition party was referring to Ambode’s world press conference on Sunday where he claimed that his opponent in the race, Babajide Sanwoolu, was arrested for spending fake dollars in the United States.
Governor Ambode also said Sanwoolu was detained in the USA on account of the alleged crime, adding that his party (APC) was disenfranchising its members by insisting that registered members of the party, who were yet to be issued with membership cards, will not be allowed to participate in the gubernatorial primary election.
PDP said in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, “By this, the whole world can see that the APC is nothing but a den of fraudsters and corrupt persons who not only cheated their way to power through lies and propaganda in 2015 but have also continued to bleed and defraud our nation with humongous sleazes and massive corruption in very high places.
“That is why the APC will have no scruples to project persons of questionable character and those with allegations of corruption hanging on the necks as their National Chairman and governorship aspirants.
“We challenge President Muhammadu Buhari to show his claimed integrity by ordering an open investigation into this huge allegation against his party’s governorship aspirant.
“Finally, the PDP calls on Lagosians and indeed all Nigerians to note this ugly trend in the APC and ensure that they throw this undesirable party to the dustbin of history, come 2019.”
