…By for TDPel Media.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed deep concern over a failed terrorist attack aimed at its Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar, and other significant locations in Yola, Adamawa State.
The party suspects that this thwarted attack could be part of a larger scheme to obstruct their efforts in reclaiming what they believe to be their “stolen” presidential mandate.
The Suspicions and Allegations:
Late on Monday, the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Hon. Debo Ologunagba, issued a statement in Abuja, highlighting the party’s anxieties.
He pointed out that the arrested assailants had confessed to the plot, suggesting that it may have been a sponsored attempt on the life of Atiku Abubakar.
The motive behind this alleged plot seems to be to hinder his efforts to challenge the outcome of the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC).
Potential Political Agenda:
According to the PDP, the orchestrators of this sinister plan may be seeking to silence their Presidential Candidate, cause harm to innocent Nigerians, and create chaos and anarchy in the country.
The party raises questions about whether the foiled attack in Yola, Adamawa, is connected to recent threats from the All Progressives Congress (APC) regarding potential chaos if the PEPC upholds specific constitutional provisions related to the declaration of a presidential election winner.
Insecurity and State of Emergency Speculations:
The PDP also speculates that the failed attack could be part of a larger plan to instigate a sense of insecurity in Adamawa State, Atiku Abubakar’s home state, potentially paving the way for the imposition of a State of Emergency in the region and, subsequently, throughout the country.
The party urges the Inspector General of Police to investigate the sponsors behind the assailants’ plot and bring them to justice to safeguard the nation’s security, unity, and well-being.
The PDP emphasizes that the Federal Government has a crucial duty to the nation and the global community to ensure that those responsible for these heinous acts and their sponsors are held accountable.
Due to the significant scope and dimension of the attempted attack, this particular investigation holds particular importance for the country.
Protecting Atiku Abubakar and His Family:
Given the critical juncture in the democratic process, the PDP calls upon security agencies to enhance security measures around Atiku Abubakar and his family.
This precaution is essential to safeguard their safety and well-being during this sensitive period.
Commending Vigilance and Urging Calm:
The PDP commends the vigilance of the people of Yola, Adamawa State, and security agencies in foiling the attack.
While urging Nigerians to remain calm and alert, the party expresses confidence that authorities will diligently investigate and apprehend those behind this evil plot.
