By  |  9 Comments
The All Progressives Congress says Federal Government’s security agencies have bugged the mobile phones of a former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu; Governor Rotimi Amaechi of and Senator Bukola Saraki. The party added that the telephones of its National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun and its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, had also been bugged by the Peoples Democratic Party-led . The said this in a statement by Mohammed on Thursday. The statement read, “As the elections approach, we know the harassment and intimidation will be stepped up. We know our leaders, including the National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, former Governor Bola Tinubu, Governor Rotimi Amaechi, former Governor Timipre Sylva, Senator Bukola Saraki and National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, are under surveillance and their phones have been hacked. “We are aware that several of them, especially the National Publicity Secretary, have been marked down for arrest in the days to come. “We know there are evil plots to frame some of them on trumped-up charges. We know our lives are in danger. But these and more will not deter us from continuing to act in the national interest or from seeking to effect change through the ballot box. “Yes, we are alerting Nigerians that if anything happens to us they should know where it is coming from, but for us there is no going back because we are resolute.” The party said its leadership and members will not be intimidated by the latest ‘antics’ of the President Goodluck Jonathan administration to harass and intimidate the opposition ahead of the elections. The party said the recent military siege to the house of Tinubu, the Imo State Government House and the police harassment of the APC’s presidential campaign spokesman, Garba Shehu, signifies desperation in the camp of the PDP. The APC thanked Nigerians for their immense and unwavering support, especially since the postponement of the elections. The party said, “We are glad that instead of weakening the resolve and enthusiasm of Nigerians, the Presidency-orchestated postponement has further galvanised them to be more determined not only to vote but also to defend their votes.” The APC called on Jonathan to remember the verdict of history and put his ‘dogs of war’ on a leash, saying that history will judge no one but him for the actions of his supporters, who are all acting in his name.

    If this is true, then it goes to show how dirty the ruling party – The PDP is willing to go in their desperation to remain in power. This doesn’t augur well for the health of our political climate. It is bad politicking and the alleged party in question must come out to clear its name of all these crazy allegations.
