APC Counters PDP Over Claims To Victory

 

….. Accuses Atiku, Obi of Inciting Followers

The All Progressive Congress has countered the Peoples Democratic Party which earlier on Monday accused the Independent National Electoral Commission and the APC of conniving to manipulate the outcome of the Saturday’s presidential election.

Dele Alake, Director Strategy of the Presidential Campaign Council of the APC, who addressed journalists in Abuja, said the police must arrest those inciting their followers to violence over the outcome of the election.

Alake, who was accompanied by other chieftains of the campaign like Festus Keyamo, Femi Fani-Kayode and Bayo Onanuga, said the agent of the PDP at the Collation Centre, Dino Melaye, should be arrested over his claims calling for violence.

Alake alleged that all allegations being made by the PDP and the Labour Party are meant to instigate mass unrest.

Alake added that the result in Lagos state where Tinubu lost to the candidate of the Labour Party is a testimony to the freeness of the process adding that “if we did not rig them out in Lagos, how can we rig them out anywhere else. So, when eventually, Asiwaju is declared winner of this process, no one should complain.”

“We note with utmost concern those inciting comments and call to violence by some spokespersons of the opposition, especially those from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). We are particularly concerned and call on the State Security Services and the Nigeria Police Force to immediately restrain persons such as Dino Melaye, Dele Momodu and a certain Pastor Paul Enenche of Dunamis Church from their clear call to violence.

“Melaye’s tweet threatening violence, Momodu going on the TV to announce a purported winner and Enenche’s hate speech from the pulpit violate every law of the land. They should not go scot-free,” Alake said
