PDP Postpones Abuja Rally Over APC Alleged Denial Of Access To Rally Ground
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has postponed its presidential mega rally earlier scheduled to hold today, Saturday, February 9, 2019.
According to the party, the decision to postpone the rally follows an alleged refusal by the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal Government to grant the party access to the venue of the campaign.
PDP spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan made this claim in a statement on Saturday.
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari, and the All Progressives Congress, APC, of denying the party access to the venue of their mega rally, scheduled today, after paying for the venue.
In a statement disclosed by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, and Director, Media and Publicity, PDP Presidential Campaign Organization, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party averred that it stood down its presidential mega rally in spite of the fact that it had made payments to the authorities and obtained official approval to host the mega rally at the Old Parade Ground, Garki, Abuja.
In view of that, PDP, advised Nigerians to document this action meted against them by the Buhari Presidency and the APC.
Ologbondiyan apologised for the inconveniences which the postponement of the rally will cause party supporters in Abuja.
“The PDP appreciates the commitment of Nigerians, particularly, those who have already converged in Abuja for this mega rally.
“While we regret the inconveniences caused by the insensitive action of the Buhari Presidency and APC, we wish to inform that a rescheduled date for the rally will be communicated soon,” the PDP spokesman said.
