The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Kogi State has denied the allegation that it was behind the recent protest at the APC National Secretariat in Abuja by some angry youth over the candidature of Prince Abubakar Audu as the APC candidate for the November 21 governorship election.
Kogi PDP chairman, Engr. Sam Uhuotu, described the allegation made to that effect by one, Abdulkadiri Ahmed as mischievous and a calculated attempt to smear the integrity of his party (PDP).
The chairman, who spoke through the party Publicity Secretary, Hon. Bode Ogunmola said APC has formed the attitude of always pinning their problems on others, “The APC has formed the attitude of always looking for scapegoat even when it is responsible for its own problems. We advised that the APC come to terms with the reality that it has made an unpopular choice which is presently threatening to tear the party into shreds.
“The APC allegation is the ranting of a drowning party. We advised them (APC) to channel their energy to winning the confidence of the electorate, who, have since lost every modicum of respect for them for wanting to foist a man they have rejected four times in the past.
“It was not the PDP that asked the APC to field a candidate that is standing trial with the anti-graft agency over allegation bordering on fraud. Failure at the November 21governorship poll stares the APC on the face because of the choice it has made”.
