2023 Elections: APC Accuses PDP Of Authoring ‘Fake Document’ To Smear Its Image

All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) of authoring a ‘fake document‘ allegedly containing its 2023 general election rigging plans to smear the image of the party to Nigerians.

Felix Morka, the APC National Publicity Secretary, issued this refutation, via a statement in Abuja, on Monday, June 27.

According to reports, the earmarked funds, N6.5 trillion is budgeted for the purpose of the electorate to support and vote for the Party and its Presidential Candidate in 2023.

The document also alleged that obscene amounts of money have been voted for outright vote-buying, compromising election officials, security operatives, judicial officers and others.

Under the subheading, “Voters Inducement” the document allegedly proposes amounts ranging between N10, 000 and N20, 000 per voter.

However, APC has accused the opposition Peoples Democratic Party PDP of manufacturing the said document in an attempt to smear its image.

Morka said;

The APC wishes to place firmly on record that the document is not of the Party. We neither authored nor own any such document, and it certainly did not emanate from our Party.

The document is the handiwork of very sick elements of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in a desperate quest for unmerited electoral advantage by attempting to smear our Party with wrong doing.

The APC spokesman further added:

In their zealous attempt to mudsling, the document’s authors senselessly alleged that our Party proposes to apply nearly half of the country’s entire 2022 budget to buy votes. How in the world does a government operating a national budget of N17trillion dole out N6.5trillion to rig elections? It clearly betrays the authors’ extreme ignorance of the complexity of the systems and processes for the appropriation and utilization of state funds.

Only a party that is a masterful looter of the national treasury such as the PDP can even imagine another capable of engaging in the kinds of atrocious acts the document suggests.
