The Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) on Friday raised the alarm that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has concluded plans to silence the party leader, Senator Bola Tinubu. Addressing journalists in Lagos, the party spokesperson, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said as the ACN fortunes rose, the prospect of the PDP became dimmer by the day.
He explained that the PDP knew Tinubu as the architect of their misfortune, making them to want to stop him at all cost.
“Well, we can now tell you that President Jonathan seems to have finally succumbed to pressure by signing on to the evil plan. Now we have it on good authority that the Attorney-General and Minister of Justice is being put under tremendous pressure to look for any offence, no matter how flimsy, to get Tinubu arrested and prosecuted, just to put him away.
“We understand that if he eventually capitulates under pressure, he may sign a warrant for Tinubu’s arrest anytime from now. We still do not know, specifically, what he will be arrested for, but we know why, “ Mohammed said.
He alleged that those behind the plot had started meeting across the country to hone their plan.
He stated that at one of the meetings, “they said everything must be done to stop the putative alliance between our ACN and the CPC - which they saw as capable of ending the years of misrule by the PDP.
”Concerning our leader, Asiwaju Tinubu, the end-gamers are going for the final solution.
“Mere arrest for whatever reason may seem innocuous and routine, but it is just the first step.
“Their plan is to ultimately give Asiwaju Tinubu, while in detention, the Yar’Adua or Abiola treatment. They do not intend to let him return home alive! We are not crying wolf here, we have every reason to worry, to speak out and to alert Nigerians to this evil plan,” he alleged.
