Cash Crunch: PDP Accuses Tinubu, APC Of Mopping Up Cash For Vote-buying

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate Bola Tinubu and his party leaders of intercepting and hoarding the newly redesigned banknotes to use for vote-buying ahead of the February 25 presidential election.

The party however expressed optimism that the hopelessness and anguish brought upon the country by the APC administration will be a thing of the past “when the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar assumes office as president.”

PDP national publicity secretary, Hon. Debo Ologunagba, in a statement, decried what it called the excruciating pain and distress being faced by Nigerians arising from the inability to access the new Naira notes “occasioned by the reported nefarious activities of corrupt APC leaders who are compromising the system to intercept and hoard the new bank notes for their selfish vote-buying plans ahead of the February 25, 2023 Presidential election.”

He added, “Our Party is however saddened that the cash crunch had persisted due to the sabotage of corrupt APC leaders, including the APC Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who are alleged to have masterminded the intercepting and hoarding of the new notes for their selfish agenda.

“The PDP is therefore disgusted by the hypocrisy being exhibited by the APC Presidential Candidate, who, despite his alleged role in the cash scarcity, is pointing accusing fingers at others and seeking to exploit the ugly situation to incite unsuspecting Nigerians with the view to disrupting the 2023 general elections.
