Tinubu’s Victory: PDP trying to incite, destabilize Nigeria with Abuja protest – Fani-Kayode
Femi Fani-Kayode, a senior member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), claimed that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), with its protest in Abuja over the party's defeat in the presidential election, was attempting to incite and destabilize Nigerians.
The APC is ready for what the PDP is preparing, according to Fani-Kayode.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) headquarters in Abuja was the site of a protest organized by the PDP against the outcome of the presidential election.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate Bola Tinubu was proclaimed the victor of the February 25 election by INEC on Wednesday.
With 8,794,726 votes, Tinubu defeated Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP), who received 6,101,533 votes, and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who received 6,984,520 votes.
But the PDP disagreed, claiming that Atiku had won the election and should have been declared the winner instead of Tinubu.
Fani-Kayode urged the security services to put a stop to the protest, though.
In a tweet, Fani-Kayode wrote: “The PDP’s protest march scheduled for tomorrow in Abuja is a dangerous precursor to something more sinister." They wish to incite the people and destabilize the nation. The security agencies should take note and stop this nonsense before things get out of hand and people are killed.
“How can you be in court and be protesting in the streets at the same time?" @officialABAT has extended his hand in good faith for peace. He has invited them to the table of fellowship and leadership, but in their destructive wrath and blind rage, they have rejected it.
“We lose no sleep over their childish tantrums and empty threats." Whatever they are planning, we are ready for it. Make no mistake about it: whatever it takes, whether in the street, the courtroom, or elsewhere, we WILL defend our mandate.”
