The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Wednesday alleged that some “overzealous elements” in the All Progressive Congress (APC) were planning to disrupt the party’s national convention holding on Saturday in Abuja.
The National Publicity Secretary of the National Caretaker Committee of the party, Dayo Adeyeye, made the allegation in a news briefing in Abuja.
Mr. Adeyeye called on President Muhammadu Buhari to investigate and ensure that the convention was not disrupted.
He said that the president was not involved in the plot but that some members of his party were out to cause confusion.
“We have credible information that some overzealous elements in the APC Government want to disrupt the PDP national convention.
“It is not from the very top; they know that if we have a hitch-free convention, it will mark the end of APC in power.
“We call on President Buhari to investigate and ensure that those who want to disrupt the convention refrain from doing so,” he said.
According to Mr. Adeyeye, disrupting the convention is tantamount to disrupting the country’s democracy.
He urged Mr. Buhari to go the extra mile to ensure that the PDP convention was successful by providing sufficient security in and around the arena.
