But the PDP said it was not involved in any alleged plan to disrupt the handover ceremony on May 29 or working with any foreign elements to destabilise the country.

The party said it was behind the enthronement of democratic rule in the country since 1999, wondering how it would now turn back to work against such an institution it helped to build.

The National Chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, who spoke with one of our correspondents, said the party must not be counted among any group behind such a plot.
He said the PDP believed that its mandate was stolen at the national level, adding that as a law-abiding party, it would allow the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal to adjudicate on the matter.

Secondus stated, “Allegations are being made here and there without any concrete evidence. If there are people making efforts at derailing the democratic institution in the country, we can never be part of it.

“The PDP built the democratic institution that the All Progressives Congress is enjoying today. We are democratic in nature and in name.

“We know that our mandate was stolen by the APC in connivance with the Independent National Electoral Commission.  We are law-abiding and that is why we are already in court to retrieve our stolen mandate.

“We know that the Nigerian people are with us and are going to celebrate soon when we get our mandate. So, tell them that we are not part of any group of individuals or institutions that may be working to achieve what the army claimed.”

Secondus said the PDP would not support anyone or individual that “does anything outside the constitution to seek redress on any issue.”
