PDP Accuses Buhari of ‘Overheating’ The Polity Over Alleged Planned Coup by The Presidency

THE Peoples Democratic Party – PDP, Tuesday accused the Presidency of overheating the polity over claim by Aso Rock that some religious and political leaders were planning to overthrow the President, Muhammadu Buhari.


The PDP expressed their opinion through a statement Tuesday, urging the All Progressives Congress – APC, to ask President Buhari to ‘’look inwards’’ and stop blaming Nigerians.

“Rather than live up to the responsibilities of office by taking charge and securing our nation, the Presidency is busy engaging in frivolous allegations against Nigerians,’’ the opposition party said in a statement titled, ‘You’re Haunted By Your Own Shadows.’

According to the statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP accused the ruling APC of having ‘the history and penchant to scuttle democratically elected governments.’

“Perhaps, the Presidency has forgotten that in 1983, Brigadier Muhammadu Buhari, as he was then known, led a military coup to truncate a democratically elected government thereby causing our nation a huge drawback on democratic governance.’

“Also, in 2015, the APC, which was hurriedly formulated, made itself available as a vehicle of brigandage to disrupt our political process by beguiling Nigerians and taking power through violence, propaganda and falsehood.
