The People’s Democratic Party (PDP), on
Friday, stood down its Presidential campaign
dated for Saturday, February 9 at the Old
parade ground in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.
Naija News reports that the opposition party in
a statement issued and signed by the National
Publicity Secretary and director, media and
publicity, PDP presidential campaign
organization, Kola Ologbendiyan, blamed its
decision on not to hold the rally on the federal
government’s refusal to grant the party the
facility for use.
Ologbendiyan called on Nigerians to note and
document what he described as the ‘ill-
treatment’ allegedly melted on it by the APC-
government led by President Mohammadu
Buhari.
In the statement, Kola Ologbondiyan claimed
that the party has already made payments for
the venue and had apparently made
preparations.
Ologbeniyan recalled that the party had also
fixed in its presidential campaign in the Tafawa
Balewa square but said that the PDP was
forced to move the campaign to Abuja after the
ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) fixed the
same date for its presidential campaign.
Lagos state would on Saturday, host the flag
bearer of the APC for the forthcoming
presidential election dated for February 16 and
March 2.
It would be recalled that Naija News had
reported that the Lagos state government
planned to shut down about 18 of its routes just
for the cause of the campaign.
Meanwhile, in a contrary directive, the Lagos
state government has assured that Lagosians
can go ahead with their daily activities as they
would not be affected by the campaign.
