PDP where new members of the National Working Committee, NWC were elected, alleging that the widespread of money-bag politics took place during the event.

According to the group, the alleged use of money, was not only shameful, but a big threat to the sustainability of democracy in Nigeria.

A statement by BCO National Coordinator, Danladi Fasali, read, “The continuation of such dirty politics to win elections at all cost, by people who looted the wealth of the country in the past is a signal that the party has not learnt any lessons from Nigerians.

“The widespread allegations of buying delegates and Governors at the convention of the biggest opposition party in the country, is worrisome. We see this as a signal that coming 2019 such attitude will continue whereby PDP candidates will use looted funds to converse for votes.

“However, we are certain that majority of Nigerians have now learnt lessons from money-bag politics and its implications. No patriotic Nigerian is willing to experience such types of politics in the future of our country.

“We are disappointed that despite the clamor of the fight against corruption in the country, the PDP has not yet change.

“We the ‘Buharists’ are ready to face any politician in 2019 no matter how much he /she holds on election day. We believe that money is no longer a weapon for election in Nigeria, only the integrity, dedication and selfless politicians will have their way.”
