In a statement on Sunday, the APC campaign council accused Galadima of plotting to announce Atiku Abubakar, PDP presidential candidate, as the winner of the presidential election.

The council claimed Galadima had recorded a short video to this effect, while acting on behalf of the PDP as its campaign spokesman.

It also claimed the opposition party is plotting to mobilise “hoodlums” for nationwide protests.

“In preparation for this reckless move, some PDP social media agents are already flying some kites on-line as to the number of States allegedly ‘won’ by PDP,” read a statement issued by Festus Keyamo, spokesman of the campaign.

“In fact, Alhaji Buba Galadima, an official spokesperson for Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has made a short video announcing PDP as the ‘winner’ of the Presidential Election.

“As an official spokesperson, he is clearly acting on behalf of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and on his instruction. We, therefore call for the immediate arrest, interrogation and prosecution of Alhaji Buba Galadima in this regard. The world is watching and waiting on Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to say something on the video by Alhaji Buba Galadima.”

The APC campaign council added that it learnt the PDP has summoned an emergency meeting in Abuja regarding the election.

“Top on the agenda of the PDP is to activate the last strand of their Dubai strategies that have since collapsed like a pack of cards: they plan to release fake results of the Presidential Election later today or early Monday morning that they claim to have compiled themselves,” Keyamo said.

“Our information is that they aim to create crises and confusion that will lead to Alhaji Atiku Abubakar claiming victory in a day or two from today ahead of the official announcement of the results by INEC. Then, what would follow will be some carefully choreographed protests by pockets of hoodlums in some parts of the country. The ultimate aim is to curry the sympathy of our foreign friends and push us to the Venezuela situation.

“Our call is therefore to INEC, Nigeria Broadcasting Commission and all law-enforcement agencies to continually warn the PDP and all their surrogates like the amorphous CUPP and their likes that anyone who flouts the law on announcement of official results will be made to face the law. Opposition does not confer immunity on anyone to flout the law.”

TheCable reached out to Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP spokesman, for reaction but he had not responded as of the time when this report was filed.

The opposition party had earlier asked INEC to declare Atiku winner of the presidential election.
