The Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organisation, PDPPCO, on Friday alleged that the All Progressives Congress was planning a campaign of character assassination of its leaders ahead of the March 28 and April 11 general elections.
The Director of Media and Publicity of the campaign organisation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, made the allegation while addressing journalists in Abuja.
Fani-Kayode said the PDP was in possession of credible information about the alleged plan by the main opposition party to procure the services of some disgruntled persons within and outside the country to carry out the attacks.
Fani-Kayode said, “They have offered huge sums of money to the former staff of numerous PDP leaders, including the President, the Vice President, the National Chairman, the DG of the Presidential Campaign Organisation, the Chairman of the PDP Board of Trustees, the National Security Adviser, two Directors of the Presidential Campaign Organisation, including my good self, and numerous other key government and party leaders and functionaries to fabricate the most unbelievable, salacious, chilling and macabre tales about their former principals in an attempt to discredit us”.
While condemning the planned ‘Lagosians March for Change’, being organised by the Buhari/Osinbajo Campaign Organisation on Saturday, the PDP campaign spokesman argued that if there should be any rally or protest in Lagos, such should be directed against some national leaders of the party.
