These according to PDP include the “parlous state of the nation’s economy” for which Nigerians now resorting to vices, including slavery and suicide as options.

It also listed  intensive global criticism of  APC-led government, particularly with the latest from  Bill Gates and  eminent statesmen.

 “These are issues that cannot be swept under the carpet using any ploy whatsoever.

“While we still challenge the APC to name any members of the repositioned and rebranded PDP convicted for corruption, we wish to remind them that our three-day ultimatum to explain the source of looted fund to finance President Buhari’s 2015 campaign still subsist.

 “No amount of blackmail or intimidation can stop Nigerians from holding the dysfunctional APC accountable,” he said.
