…Says he won’t be first President to be defeated in an election

By Dirisu Yakubu

ABUJA- The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of constituting a big threat to the conduct of credible elections in 2019 even as it called on the National Peace Committee led by former military Head of State, General Abdulsalami Abubakar (retd) and the United Nations, UN, to call the first citizen to order.

The PDP Presidential Campaign Council, PPCO, stated this Sunday while addressing a press conference in Abuja.

The party said the “desperation” to succeed himself has made the President to put national unity and stability on the line, damning the consequence.

“We want the whole world to know that Nigeria is in a perilous time. President Muhammadu Buhari’s desperation for self-succession has become the major threat to our national unity, stability and peaceful electoral process.

“Having realized that Nigerians are rallying behind our candidate, Atiku Abubakar, as their next President, the Presidency is now seeking ways to enmesh the electoral process in crisis.

“The Buhari Presidency has been overheating the polity with its unending manipulations of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, muzzling of free speech and escalated clampdown on opposition and civil society organizations and we insist that such must stop if we must have a peaceful election,” the party stated.

I'd say that this is unprecedented in Nigeria.
Even in Obasanjo's third term schemes, he never raised the stakes this high.

Again, this was all very predictable.
There is real potential for trouble because the opposition today in Nigeria is not some ordinary Nigerians.
They have ways and means of doing things that can check Buhari, and only God knows how it all ends.
We have a fragile nation, and all Nigerians should be concerned.

One of the lowest point of Buhari's regime is these peace matter, Fulani herdsmen and co. Funny enough he isn't addressing it. Will it change the bearing of 2019 election? Time will tell
