The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has mocked President Muhammadu Buhari over the violence that broke out at the All Progressives Congress (APC) rally in Abeokuta, Ogun State on Monday, saying it showed that Nigerians could not be bought with N10,000.
Th PDP said this on its verified Twitter handle on Monday, noting that the violence is a direct consequence of the four years of Buhari’s misrule.
The PDP said, “The public pelting and jeering at Buhari and his APC during his election campaign rally in Abeokuta, Ogun state, is a direct response by Nigerians to his four years misrule as depicted in the expansion of poverty, corruption, divisiveness and bloodletting in our nation.
“It is instructive to note that Mr. President was pelted in Abeokuta barely 24 hours after his Zamfara state rally on Sunday, where he attempted to incite Nigerians to join the APC in their planned resort to violence to derail the 2019 general election.
“The people of Ogun state, and indeed, the South West, have shown that they are in direct alignment with other states and geopolitical zones of our country in rejecting President Buhari and VP Osinbajo, whose administration has foisted so much pain and anguish to Nigerians.
“Mr. President can now see that Nigerians cannot be bought with N10,000, as he was made to believe by the Vice President Osinbajo and members of the cabal in his Presidency.
“The PDP, therefore, urges Buhari and the APC to read the handwriting on the wall and get ready to accept his inevitable defeat so that Nigerians can have a breath of fresh air under the leadership of Atiku , whose campaign has continued to receive rousing reception.”
