2019: Igbo youths threaten PDP over vice president position

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has come out against the decision of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to opt for direct primary for some positions ahead of the 2019 general elections.

The PDP said it had uncovered a plot by President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC to use the party’s direct primary to perfect their plan to rig the 2019 general elections, particularly for the president.

The PDP, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, in Abuja on Saturday, said that the main opposition party was aware that the presidency forced the direct primaries on party members to eliminate delegates’ participation and pave the way for the allocation of millions of conjured votes.

Ologbondiyan said that the APC and Buhari were planning to use the votes as a basis to authenticate the alleged fictitious votes they intend to declare for President Buhari at the general elections.

He said, “Having eliminated contest within the APC, the Presidency, which is now apprehensive of apathy against President Buhari due to his increasing unpopularity, plots to import non-members of the party to satiate the venue of the presidential primaries to create an impression of overwhelming popularity for Mr. President and use that to validate the fictitious votes they are conjuring for the Presidential election.

“The PDP is reliably informed that this rigging plot is the reason, the APC aspirants to other positions, especially, APC state governors, are demanding direct primaries instead of the indirect primaries earlier approved for them by their party.
