The All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Organisation urged Nigerians to be vigilant of distasteful actions by the Peoples Democratic Party agents.
Speaking about the “drama” orchestrated (according to their claim) by Godsday Orubebe, the former minister of Niger Delta, during the collation of presidential election results on March 31, Tuesday, the organisation said it was the beginning of sinister things to come.
The press statement by Garba Shehu, the Director of Media and Publicity of the APC Campaign was provided by Premium Times:
“Much as disgraceful as the action by Elder Orubebe was this morning, it typifies the kind of things Nigerians should expect from the PDP and its agents, in an expression of their desperation and pent-up frustrations with the popular decisions of Nigerians in the March 28 Presidential and National Assembly elections.
“We cannot under-rate the frustrations of these people, and we anticipate that they will not hesitate to do the unthinkable to subvert the course of the electoral process and, indeed, democracy in the country.
“We wish to alert that Orubebe’s drama aimed at disrupting the announcement of the results of the presidential election is just act one scene one in a plot that has many more acts and scenes ahead. The elements of the drama might involve a breach of law and order.
“We therefore call on Nigerians to be watchful, vigilant, and prayerful and remain resolute to protect our democracy from the machinations of agents-provocateurs.”
Meanwhile it has just been reported that Goodluck Jonathan personally called Muhammadu Buhari to congratulate him on the victory. However, this comes before the final result announcement by the INEC. The electoral body is yet to announce the figures from Borno state. The session is to resume today at 8pm.
