Another Allegation! Jonathan Plans To Freeze, Tinubu, Amaechi’s Accounts- APC

The All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council
on Saturday condemned an alleged plot by the President Goodluck Jonathan-led
Peoples Democratic Party to cripple the campaign of the party’s presidential
candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari (retd).
This was contained in a statement signed by the Director
Media and Publicity of the APC Presidential campaign, Mr. Garba Shehu, in
He said the APC Presidential campaign condemned the plot by
the Jonathan-led ruling Peoples Democratic Party to clip the electoral success
wings of the opposition APC, through a proposed grounding of aircraft and
freezing of bank accounts belonging to stalwarts of the party.

According to him, the plot to destabilise the APC and
cripple its flag-bearer, General Muhammadu Buhari, may be linked to the global
attention on its candidate’s performance at the United kingdom’s Chatham House
last Thursday.

The statement partly read: “The hint we gather from sources
is that the government, through its agents, is plotting to ground aircraft and
freeze bank accounts of APC stakeholders. But history has shown that the forces
of evil can never succeed against the zeal of men and women of virtue and good
Shehu said information at APC’s disposal had uncovered the
plot by the Jonathan administration to use the Aviation Ministry and the
security service to hound and clampdown members of the APC, by prospecting
obnoxious means to halt and slow down Buhari’s popularity.
“There is also a plot to block or freeze the bank accounts
of APC chieftains like Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Governor Rotimi Amaechi
(Director General of APC Presidential Campaign Organisation), and other
prominent leaders believed to be funding the General’s campaign; and availing
him their aircrafts for electioneering purposes,” Shehu said.
The APC Presidential campaign spokesperson recalled that
private jets conveying APC Governors, Amaechi of Rivers State and Adams
Oshiomhole of Edo State, were either prevented from taking-off or landing
during crucial political occasions, particularly during the Ekiti State
gubernatorial elections that “saw PDP’s Ayodele Fayose defeating Dr Kayode
Fayemi, in a most controversial military-assisted contest now known as
Ekiti-gate Tape.”
When contacted, the deputy National Publicity Secretary of
the PDP, Mr. Abdullahi Jalo said, he was not aware of any such plan and
challenged the APC to produce evidence if it had any.
He said, “The PDP will remain focused on its campaign for
this election. We will not be distracted by the opposition. If they have
evidence of any such plan they should make it public.”
