There May Be More To APC’s Interest In Jega – PDP

Must read

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has come out to question the incessant alarms being raised by the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) over a supposed plan by the Presidency to sack the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Professor Attahiru Jega.

Speaking via a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, the PDP said it was curious as to why the APC continues to trump up propaganda stories, wondering why the opposition party was showing undue interest in Jega, even after it has been reiterated that nothing of the like was in the offing.

Metuh said: “Undoubtedly, the frenzy, hysteria and spate with which the APC has been inventing stories regarding Prof. Jega’s stay in office, even when nothing suggests that such was on the table, raise a lot of issues.

“We ask, is there any underlining issue or arrangement between APC and Prof. Jega which the opposition is hell-bent to protect, informing its anxiety and apprehension towards his stay in office?

“While it is noted that the APC is a party of one week, one lie, we in the PDP look beneath the surfaces to the deeper issues propelling the lies.

“We therefore challenge the APC to come out clean and tell Nigerians the real reason behind their false alarms and uncontrolled nervousness regarding Prof. Jega ahead of the 2015 general elections.

“Finally, we wish to remind the leadership of INEC that Nigerians are monitoring its activities and series of unfolding political events ahead of the elections, and will not accept anything less than the conduct of credible, free and fair general elections come March 28 and April 11, 2015.”
