PDP shouldn’t cajole foreign observers – Northern Group


Head of the European Union delegation to Nigeria and the Economic Community of West Africa States, Ambassador Ketil Karlsen

The Northern Discussion Group (NDG), yesterday, accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of being responsible for institutionalising election rigging, asking them not to cajole foreign nations and international organisations into intervening in the forthcoming general elections.

The convener of the group, Prof. Abdullahi Ashafa in Kaduna said: “The PDP people have no qualms petitioning foreign nations and organisations, many of whom have held us in contempt over purely domestic affairs. 

“By this, not only those alive will suffer once again the misfortune of this category of disastrous leaders, but also the founding fathers of this nation, who gallantly and selflessly retrieved our independence from the colonial powers, would be mightily disappointed that for self-serving reasons, some desperate politicians could not resist the unpalatable temptation of cajoling foreign interests into intervening in matters not beyond national solution.”  

Ashafa, who said PDP couldn’t organise free, fair and credible elections for 16 years, called on the party to apologise to Nigerians for misgoverning them. 

He urged Nigerians to give President Muhammadu Buhari another mandate to consolidate on his existing achievements in the past four years. 

Saying PDP should not be trusted with power again, he reminded citizens of voting age and those that have acquired their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) that the forthcoming general election is their destiny.
