The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has slammed the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) for allegedly plotting to spread false information about the ruling party’s flagbearer, Bola Tinubu.
WITHIN NIGERIA previously reported that the APC campaign council has accused the PDP of preparing to use fake news in Hausa to malign, defame, and illegitimize the party and Tinubu ahead of the elections.
The APC PCC Director of Media and Publicity, Bayo Onanuga, said in an Abuja statement on Sunday that the PDP perfected the alleged plot with a team working from the main opposition party’s national headquarters at Wadata House.
However, in response to the allegations, PDP Deputy National Publicity Secretary Ibrahim Abdullahi stated that the ruling party is afraid of losing the upcoming elections while emphasizing that the opposition party was unaware of the claims.
He accused the ruling party of criticizing the PDP‘s candidate, Atiku Abubakar, without the PDP raising an eyebrow.
Where is this rumour coming from? If what they say the PDP is about to do is not true, why are they losing sleep? If they are clean, why are they worried? As far as we are concerned, the rumour emanated from the pit of hell. We are not aware of this.
Whatever they fear that PDP will say, if it is not true, it will not hold any water. Have they not done the same thing about our own presidential candidate?
