Buba Galadima, a spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar Campaign Organisation, has said that the All Progressives Congress (APC) sponsored and paid some highly placed Nigerians to beg Atiku Abubakar not to go to court over the disputed 2019 presidential election.
Galadima, while speaking on Channels Television Wednesday also accused the APC of using the military to rig the 2019 presidential election.
“Of course every Nigerian, everybody in the world who had followed the contemporary Nigerian election of 2019 knew that there was rigging, massive intimidation, in fact, there was robbery by the APC by using the security agencies especially the military to rig the election.
“If it is an allegation, go and ask a host of places in Benue, Plateau, Borno, Yobe and Zamfara.
“Let them go to court, I’ll substantiate it. You know it is a fact that one month to the election, the military had declared what you called Python Dance across the 36 states of the federation.
“That is preparatory to their engagement during the election and they used it effectively to intimidate voters, to harass voters, to kill voters and write results for the APC. Is that an allegation? Did you not see what happened.
“Records available to us show that our candidates had won this election and that is why we had gone to court,” he said.
He alleged that APC have sponsored some highly placed Nigerians, paying them handsomely to appeal to Atiku not to go to court.
“What is their business? Didn’t their candidate in 2003, 2007 and 2011 go to court to challenge results? Did he ever congratulate those that were declared to have won those elections?’ Galadima said.
