The federal government has been urged by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to speak on the alleged move to declare Friday a public holiday.
Per reports, May 26 has been fixed by the Supreme Court for the ruling on the case filed by the PDP seeking the disqualification of the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, and the Vice President-elect, Kashim Shettima.
Reports circulating on social media allege that President Muhammadu Buhari has been advised to declare Friday a public holiday so that judgment on the case will be stalled.
Speaking on the allegation on Thursday, PDP National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba called on the federal government to respond to the matter.
According to him, the federal government's silence could trigger a widespread crisis.
“The PDP also calls on the Federal Government to come clean on a further allegation, which is also in the public domain that APC is mounting pressure on the Department of State Services (DSS) to advise President Buhari to declare the public holiday.
“The ominous silence by the Federal Government in the face of such grave allegations is heightening tension across the country and has the capacity to trigger a widespread crisis if not immediately addressed”, Ologunagba stated.
