The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described as evil, the allegations that some individuals at the Presidency were plotting to install an interim government at the expiration of the tenure of President Muhammadu Buhari.
There have been allegations that elements in high places were responsible for the current fuel and Naira scarcity in the country in their bid to cause the postponement of the 25 February presidential election and prepare the ground for the enthronement of an interim government.
PDP National Publicity Secretary, Barrister Debo Ologunagba said that the very thought of an interim government was unacceptable to millions of Nigerians.
He said: “As a party, we don’t want to be drawn into the controversy of who is plotting what, when, and how. But whether those plotting an interim government for our country are in Aso Rock or the forest, we want to advise them to perish the thought.
“Interim government is evil and unacceptable to Nigerians. Nigerians are ready for the election. President Muhammadu Buhari has also expressed his readiness for the election; and so are the Independent National Electoral Commission and the security agencies.
“We have held several press conferences where we drew the attention of Nigerians to this plot. Today, it is out in public discourse. We must rise and charge President Buhari to live by his pledge to bequeath a legacy of credible election to Nigerians”.
Ologunagba said that PDP would leave the rulling All Progressives Congress to Nigerians to judge amid the fuel crisis and Naira scarcity in the country.
