2019 Election- Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday expressed concern over the incessant threats by the Buhari presidency and the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Nigerians and international bodies.

Describing the threats as worrisome, the party said that the Buhari presidency and the APC are seeking to pull down the nation and pitch her against the global community and return it to a pariah nation status.

PDP, in a statement by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan said, “the threats by the Buhari Campaign Organization to the United States Ambassador to Nigeria, Ambassador W. Stuart Symington, as well as attempts to demonize the envoy for his country’s caution against hate speech in our electioneering discourse by desperate politicians is to say the least, embarrassing.

“Just as the proverbial old woman who takes offence whenever dry bones are mentioned, the Buhari presidency and the APC are furious and issuing threats at this open and well-intentioned caution by peace-loving members of the global community because they are directly culpable.

“Only on Sunday, President Muhammadu Buhari at his campaign rally in Zamfara state made incendiary comments and encouraged his audience to join the APC in its planned resort to violence and self-help in the 2019 general election.
