The All Progressives Congress (APC) has frowned on “mischievous attempts in some quarters” to blame it for the inability of a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential contestant, Musa Kwankwaso, to secure the Eagle Square for his declaration.
A statement by the Acting National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, noted that “the Party read in the media reasons given by the facility managers of the Abuja International Conference Centre and Eagle Square not to allow campaigns in its facility on Wednesday to avoid disruption of work flow at the federal secretariat, the main hub of civil servants in Abuja. Hence the allegation is unnecessary and misplaced. We should not be dragged into a private transaction involving entities we have no business with.
“In any case, the 2019 elections will not be won by cheap campaign ground antics but actual votes from the Nigerian electorate who are wise and know who is working in their interest. Never again will we return governance of our dear country to the hands of those that selfishly have held us back for years.”
