The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has declared that the All Progressives Congress, APC, has been celebrating criminality under the guise of victory.
The party said its position was based on alleged rigging that characterized the election in which the ruling party emerged victorious.
The All Progressives Congress, APC, candidate, President Muhammadu Buhari, defeated the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar in the keenly contested presidential election on February 2019.
PDP and Atiku have since declared the election as one fraught with irregularities.
The National Chairman of the PDP, Uche Secondus, who gave the position of the party during its expanded national caucus meeting in Abuja on Monday, said: “They are celebrating rigging and manipulation and criminality and it will consume them one day.
“INEC chairman you may think all is well, President Buhari, you may also think all is well. People are clapping hands but history is being recorded. History will judge you.”
Secondus accused President Muhammadu Buhari of assuming the role of a dictator.
According to him, the president won the presidential election through the use of force.
He said with the current dimension, votes cast by the electorate might not count in 2023 as a candidate would be imposed on Nigerians.
Decrying alleged dictatorship, the party said it was unprecedented in the history of Nigeria.
His words: “Never has it happened in the history of our country that INEC will be so compromised.
“What happened on the 23rd has never happened since independence. All Nigerians are aware and the leaders are not talking. If you don’t talk against evil, one day evil will pursue everyone.
“With things like these, in 2023 there may not be an election, it will be an announcement. It may be to put the figures together and announce.
“Our supporters and leaders are being arrested and the leaders of our country and peace committee are keeping quiet. What we have now is a full blown dictatorship.”
