PDP made their position known at a Press Conference held in Abuja achored by the National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbodiyan.

Press Statement

Why We Can’t Congratulate APC Yet, PDP Replies Mai Buni 

The attention of the @OfficialPDPNig has been drawn to a press conference by the chairman of the contentious National Caretaker Committee of the @OfficialAPCNg, Governor Mai Mala Buni, wherein he begged the PDP to congratulate the @OfficialAPCNg over the outcome of the October 10, Ondo governorship election.

It is indeed ludicrous and completely absurd that Governor Buni is begging for endorsement of the election in spite of his awareness that the internal mechanism that produced his party’s candidate, as presided over by him, was faulty.

Nigerians already know that the emergence of Governor Mai Buni in the national leadership of his party is a subject of litigation and as such his nomination of any candidate for the election is seen, even among his party members, as a nullity until the court says otherwise.

It will therefore be pathetic for Governor Mai Buni to attempt to use the @OfficialPDPNig to build something on the nothingness of his position in his party. The PDP is too structured as a party to be used by anybody, under any guise, in that regard.

Perhaps, Governor Buni is not aware that information available in the public space and to the @OfficialPDPNig showed that a very top-level management official of the @NNPCgroup, through a northwest governor elected on the platform of the @OfficialAPCNg, diverted huge amounts of money, in dollar, from our nation oil resources to fund vote buying in the Ondo election.

Instead of begging the @OfficialPDPNig for congratulatory message, Governor Buni should rather speak to this disturbing stealing of oil money to fund his party’s vote buying at the expense of Nigerians who are bearing the brunt of increase in the pump price of fuel and corruption in the oil sector under the @OfficialAPCNg

While our party will, in due course, make its official position on the outcome of the Ondo election known, the @OfficialPDPNig urges President @MBuhari to take steps that will accelerate the amendment of the Electoral Act, which was stalled following his failure to sign the amended Act of the National Assembly in 2019.
