Election Tribunal: How APC Intends To Influence Proceedings

As the Presidential Petition Court (PEPC) resumes on Monday, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has revealed how the All Progressives Congress (APC) allegedly intends to influence the proceedings.

While addressing members of the press on Sunday in Abuja, the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Debo Ologunagba, stated that APC leaders intend to compromise the judiciary with financial inducements.

He urged the ruling party to come out and address members of the public on the disturbing allegations.

“There are apprehensions in the public space, having regards to the reputation of certain individuals within the highest level of the APC, who have demonstrated capacity and proclivity to compromise democratic institutions in our country.

“It will be recalled that on May 5, 2023, our party raised alarm over the massively condemned comments by the APC presidential candidate, Senator Bola Tinubu at the commissioning of some judiciary projects in Port-Harcourt Rivers State, wherein he attempted to corrupt, cultivate and patronise the judiciary.

“More alarming are allegations in the public space of attempts by certain APC leaders to compromise the judiciary with heavy financial inducement and to orchestrate trumped-up allegations of impropriety against judicial officers.

“The PDP calls on the APC and its leaders to immediately come clean and publicly address Nigerians and the world on these disturbing allegations and revelations which are already in the public domain.

“Further to this is the provocative resort by the APC and its leaders to threaten Nigerians with treason for speaking out against the manipulations of our democratic processes by the APC.

“The bizarre response by INEC, which is an umpire that ought to be independent, to the petition of the PDP and our candidate, Atiku Abubakar, requesting for the dismissal of our petition, is further evidence of the complicity, corruption and compromise of INEC by the APC", he stated.
