All Progressives Congress Local Government Chairmen, APC-LGC, has raised an alarm over an impending plot by the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP to overthrow President Muhammadu Buhari with the aid of the National Assembly.
The grassroots APC chairmen made this revelation at a press conference on Thursday in Abuja, where it strongly accused the PDP of manipulating the NASS to remove the current administration from office.
Speaking on behalf of the group, National Coordinator, Adadu Alegwu alleged that the opposition has resorted to the legislative arm having failed to legitimately oust President Buhari in the Judiciary.
The APC chairmen further alleged that PDP new-found alliance with the National Assembly is a cause for worry, especially after some of its disloyal members reportedly received humongous sum to betray the party.
According to the group, “Having already penetrated the NASS, the PDP sought to win over the Service Chiefs to its fold”
The Forum of APC LGA Chairmen, therefore, says it considers the grand plot as a coup against democracy, and as such discerning members of the general public are placed on notice of the manifestation of the destabilization plot by the PDP.
The group further enjoined Nigerians to be steadfast and resolute in their belief in the sustenance of democracy.
“The recent upsurge in criminal activities across the country; from Boko Haram/ISWAP attacks to banditry and kidnappings, are the handiwork of the PDP, whose desperation for power isn’t strange.
“We also have it on competent authority that the character and efforts of the Service Chiefs would be subjected to an inglorious slander campaign to compromise their loyalty to the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“The Forum of APC Local Government Chairmen have also gathered from credible sources that should the Service Chiefs refuse to buckle to their evil plots; there would be a covert sponsorship of criminal activities across the country in a bid to undermine their efforts in the fight against terrorism and other political militant groups.
