Nigeria: PDP Convention Shameful - BCO

The Buhari Campaign Organisation (BCO) has said the widespread allegations of money-bag politics at the just concluded national convention of the PDP is shameful and a big threat to the sustainability of democracy in Nigeria.

A statement by the national coordinator of the organization, Danladi Pasali, said the brazen display of money to win elections at all cost by people who allegedly looted the wealth of the country in the past was a signal that the PDP had not learnt any lesson from Nigerians.

"The widespread allegations of buying delegates by governors at the convention of the biggest opposition party in the country is worrisome. We see this as a signal that come 2019, such attitude will continue whereby PDP candidates will use looted funds to canvass for votes.

However, we are certain that majority of Nigerians have now learnt lessons from money-bag politics and its implications. No patriotic Nigerian is willing to experience such type of politics in the future," Pasali said.
