PDP Condemns Attack On Buhari In Kano, Accuses Tinubu, Ganduje Of Hiring Miscreants



The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has condemned the attack on President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday in Kano State.

The opposition party also accused the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu of sponsoring miscreants to carry out the attack.

This was made known in a statement issued by the national publicity secretary of the party, Hon. Debo Ologunagba

According to him, the organised attack on the person of the President was outrightly treasonable and a sacrilegious assault on the country’s sovereignty which must be condemned by all.

“Our Party is alarmed that this attack is part of APC Presidential Candidate’s alleged plot to undermine the Presidency, cause confusion, trigger violence in the country, disrupt the conduct of the 2023 general elections and derail our democracy; having realized that he cannot win in a peaceful, free and fair electoral process.

“The PDP invites Nigerians to note how Governor Abdullahi Ganduje attempted to abridge President Buhari’s movement and even tried to stop him from visiting Kano State.

“More disquieting is the fact that the APC Presidential Campaign sought to humiliate and harm President Buhari, while performing his official duties in Kano.

“It should be noted that the APC Presidential Candidate has been displaying open aversion and making inciting statements against President Buhari since Mr. President’s declaration, in line with democratic best practice all over the world, that Nigerians should freely vote for any candidate and Party of their choice in the 2023 general elections.

“The apparent frustration of Asiwaju Tinubu to resort to encourage or condone violence is fueled by his entitlement mentality, that it is his turn to be President, despite his numerous ineligibility and disability baggage.

“Nigerians are reminded about Asiwaju Tinubu’s infamous statement in London where he declared to his supporters that “political power is not going to be served in a restaurant, it is not served a la carte. It is what we are doing; It is being determined; you do it at all cost; fight for it, grab it, snatch it and run with it.

“Only recently, Asiwaju Tinubu further incited his followers against President Buhari at APC’s Presidential Rally in Abeokuta, Ogun State, where he accused Mr. President of attempting to subvert the electoral process,” he stated.

Recall that Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, had asked president Muhammadu Buhari to shun his proposed trip to the state, saying the hardship caused by the scarcity of the redesigned Naira notes, has stirred up citizens.

However, following the extension of the deadline given to citizens to exchange their old notes for the new one, the governor rescinded on his statement, saying the president can now visit the state.
