The Peoples Democratic Party has accused the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Maj. Gen Muhammadu Buhari, of handing over the selection of his running mate to a cabal controlled by a former Lagos State Governor Asiwaju Tinubu.
According to reports by Punch, PDP accused Buhari ofsurrendering his powers and first official assignment of choosing a running mate to the cabal.
A statement released by PDP’s National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuhon Sunday said:
In surrendering his prerogative of choosing his running mate, Buhari has confirmed that he is being appropriated and compromised to serve a personal and narrow group interest of a cabal on whose ticket he emerged as a presidential candidate.
APC cabal under the command of Tinubu tampered with all the rules of their party to achieve their selfish agenda of planting surrogates in all strategic positions to enable Tinubu expand his economic and political frontiers the way and manner he did in Lagos State.Peoples Democratic Party
However, the APC national caucus will on Monday (today) meet in Abuja to take a final decision on Buhari’s running mate.
