The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has described what it called “the public pelting and jeering,” at President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress, APC, during his election campaign rally in Abeokuta on Monday as a direct response by Nigerians to his stewardship in the past three and a half years.
In a statement signed by the party’s spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP said the development showed that like other states in the country, Ogun is ready to reject the APC-led administration at the polls.

“The people of Ogun state, and indeed, the South West, have shown that they are in direct alignment with other states and geopolitical zones of our country in rejecting President Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, whose administration has foisted so much injustice and brought unprecedented pain and anguish to Nigerians.
“Mr President can now see that Nigerians cannot be bought with N10,000, as he was made to believe by Prof. Osinbajo and members of the cabal in his Presidency.
“After the unpalatable encounters in all his rallies, Mr. President needs no further signal to show him that the people have completely rejected him, despite his false performance indices. Nigerians are determined to deal him a crushing defeat on February 16 by voting en masse for the people’s candidate, Atiku Abubakar, as the next President of our country,” the statement read in part.
The party further called on the President and the ruling party to brace up for defeat at the polls in a few days time.
