PDP accuses APC of plan to use tribunals to subvert its members’ elections

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has raised alarm over what it called plan by the All Progressive Congress (APC) to sue the Tribunals to truncate and subvert the which of the people in the last general elections.
The PDP, in a communiqué issued, on Tuesday, at the end of the inaugural meeting of its National Working Committee (NWC) and governors and senators-elect on the platform of the party in Abuja, also frowned at what it called “the shameless undemocratic ways and means being displayed by the outgoing APC lawmakers in Ekiti state towards effecting an unconstitutional change in government.”
“The meeting warns the APC of its plan to use the Tribunals and Salamic arrangements to truncate and subvert the freely given mandate by the people in the states and constituencies
“The meeting expressed deep concerns at the plans by the APC to make the country a one-party state using crude and underhand, undemocratic practice and thus reverse the gains of the PDP led administration.
“The meeting frowns at the unprecedented level of intimidation, harassment and undue persecution of the party members since the INEC declaration of the APC candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari.
“The meeting calls on INEC to be forthright and impartial in the handling of the various elections pending in Abia, Imo and Taraba states,” it said.
The party, which commended President Goodluck Jonathan for his statesmanly disposition in the sustenance of democracy and peace in the country, congratulated all the winners on the platform of the PDP in the elections and urge them to discharge their duties and form a formidable opposition that can redirect the fortunes of the country and sustain the gains of the present democratic era.
