The All Progressives Congress has accused President Goodluck Jonathan of deploying a part of the missing $20bn oil fund to bribe Osun voters in order for them to vote for the Peoples Democratic Party candidate, Iyiola Omisore.
The APC National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said this in a statement he issued in Osogbo, on Wednesday.
The APC spokesperson stated that part of the missing fund was distributed to voters in Ekiti State during the June 21 governorship election which the PDP candidate, Mr. Ayo Fayose, won by a landslide.
The party accused the president of subverting democracy with his actions.
According to him, Jonathan’s major preoccupation was how to win re-election in 2015 presidential poll not minding the crisis and protracted war waged on the nation by the insurgents.
He said the Jonathan administration was not concerned with executing people-oriented projects but winning at all cost.
The statement read, “The President has also abused national institutions perhaps more than any other President in Nigeria’s history, deploying the police and the army to intimidate and harass ordinary citizens in general and opposition supporters in particular, as he did recently in Ekiti.
“He is allegedly planning to do that in Osun State; shutting airports at will just to punish the opposition and stifling the electoral commission, INEC, to prevent incorruptible RECs from conducting elections.”
