The Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) has dismissed allegations by the All Progressive Congress (APC), that it plans to rig the 2015 general elections, especially the presidential polls, saying the allegation is “unfounded and mere sophistry”.
National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Olisa Metuh, in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja, said the opposition party was raising a false flag because it has foreseen its monumental defeat at the polls come 2015.
“This is all excuses as the APC envisioned monumental failure in the 2015 polls.
“The APC is a media creation. They are not on ground; the statement is merely trying to justify its anticipated failure. The ruling PDP will no longer dignify disgruntled and frustrated persons and groups with responses and replies,” he said.
The PDP spokesman said the PDP had directed all its organs to engage only in productive and pro-active activities.
“The PDP is only willing to discuss the policies and programmes of the government.
“Nigerians will like to know the oppositions’ alternatives to the President’s programmes.
“Let us remain focused on issues that will lead to good governance and will provide dividends of democracy for the people,” he said.
The APC had in a statement on Sunday alleged that it had uncovered a grand plan by the ruling party to rig the 2015 presidential and general elections.
