The Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, has alleged that some agents of the Federal Government are planning to disrupt its National Convention scheduled to hold in Abuja on Saturday. The PDP is looking to use the convention to resolve every crisis rocking the party.
The National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Dayo Adeyeye made the allegation while speaking to journalists on Wednesday.
He urged President Muhammadu Buhari, who he said was not aware of the plan to intervene.
“They have been trying every effort but we are happy that we have no information that it is coming from the very top,” Adeyeye cautioned.
“Some overzealous elements in the administration are bent on disrupting it. It is very credible information. They are doing everything possible to make sure that this convention is disrupted,” Adeyeye alleged.
Why the plan?
“They are afraid that if the PDP should hold a successful convention, that their days in government are numbered.
“By the time we hold this convention and our officers are elected and they take offices next year, there will be a floodgate of people even from the APC to the PDP.
“This is credible information and that is why we are appealing to President Buhari to please rein in his aides. We have no evidence that the President is aware of this.
“It is happening and we are calling on him to do his own investigation and to call those who are trying to cause this problem to desist because it is capable not only of destroying this democracy but also capable of destroying the country,” Adeyeye said.
