PDPPCO Alleges Conspiracy By Tinubu To Assume Presidential Power
THE Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organisation (PDPPCO) has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of plotting to foist an agenda on the country if it wins the March 28 presidential election.
Its Director of Media and Publicity, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, said at a press conference Friday in Abuja that the plot centred on APC’s national leader, Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu, emerging as vice president as a prelude to becoming president.
Reading from a text titled, ‘APC IS SELLING A DUMMY TO THE WHOLE WORLD; TINUBU IS THE REAL CANDIDATE,” Fani-Kayode said the purpose of the conference was “to announce to the whole world the sinister plan by APC to foist on our dear nation an evil, ungodly, wicked and ruthless agenda an unlikely event the APC wins.”
He said: “Since the formation of the APC, it has been an open secret that Tinubu is its national leader and also its biggest financier.
“The question that should agitate every Nigerian is why Tinubu has been investing heavily in the APC presidential project, to such a point that he has singlehanded produced the joint presidential ticket of Gen. Muhammadu Buhari and Prof Yemi Osinbajo.
“It should baffle well-meaning Nigerians why Tinubu has decided to draft Buhari into the race, whilst ensuring that his stooge, Osinbajo was foisted on the General as vice presidential candidate.”
He added: “You will recall how Tinubu wanted to be running mate to Buhari, in spite of the nationwide resentment for Muslim-Muslim ticket that he and Buhari planned to foist on their party men and women.
“Tinubu had justified the ticket by saying that competence was the important thing and not the issue of religion.
“But when he and Buhari could not push through the agenda within the APC, he, after being given the opportunity to nominate a vice presidential candidate, decided to prop up Osinbajo.
“Credible pieces of information at our disposal indicate that Tinubu has perfected plans to come to power through the back door.
“Tinubu, according to our information, has compelled Osinbajo to swear to an oath that after six months in office, he would resign as the vice president, in the unlikely event that their party wins.
“The plot is to force Osinbajo to resign for Tinubu to be nominated by Buhari as his replacement.
“The ultimate objective of this plot is to ensure that Tinubu becomes President. The script is simple: given the questionable health of Buhari, Tinubu, who is desperate to be president for his own reasons, will simply bid his time in the evil expectation that Buhari will not be able to go the whole hog.
“How wicked can those that hatched this plan be? How unfair can they be to the North, to Buhari and to Nigerians? We wish Buhari long life.”
Fani-Kayode played a footage on YOUTUBE of Pastor Tunde Bakare’s interview where he openly admitted that he refused to sign a resignation letter that would have seen him hand over his vice presidential position had Buhari been successful in his presidential campaign in 2011.
He argued: “Becoming the vice president is not the destination, but becoming the president. The agenda of the cabal within the APC is with the perceived health challenges of Buhari.
“All structures around Buhari are all Tinubu’s structures. All the actors around Buhari that are driving his campaign behind the scenes are all Tinubu’s men.
“Most of the covert funding for this campaign comes from Tinubu’s friend outside the country and from Tinubu’s himself.
“So, if he becomes President, Buhari will become virtually incapacitated and he will not be the one running the government. Those behind this plan would now be waiting for Buhari to pass on. That is what Tinubu want to do to the North and to Nigeria.
