Prince Uche Secondus, the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in his response to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) alleged that the party and President Muhammadu Buhari were panicking because of the case instituted before the tribunal against Buhari’s victory.
Secondus statement came as a response to Buhari’s Campaign spokesman who had in a petition to the Inspector General of Police (IGP) and the Director General of the Department of State Services (DSS), requested the arrest and interrogation of the leadership of the PDP because it illegally gained access to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) server.
The PDP Chairman however said that the leadership of the party would not be intimidated, saying that both the APC and the president were afraid to defend their rigging of the presidential election at the tribunal.
“It is obvious that the President and his party are afraid and are panicking as a result of the petition we filed at the tribunal.
“They failed in their clandestine moves to persuade us not to go to the tribunal. Now the reality has dawned on them that they have to defend the injustice they meted out to us and Nigerians now.
“Now, for election they claimed they won, they ought to have filed their defence at the tribunal and be eager to defend it.
“Why are they running to the DSS and the Police with the hope that they will force us to reveal our sources? Tell them to go to the tribunal and submit their evidence of winning the election.”
