The Buhari Media Organization (BMO) has advised the PDP to stop demonizing the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and other national institutions.
BMO, which said the call was necessary after series of attacks by the PDP and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, on the top echelon of the election management body.
The group urged the PDP to look for more creative ways of reviving its flagging presidential campaign.
The group in a statement signed by its Chairman Niyi Akinsiju and Secretary Cassidy Madueke said the PDP had resorted to bullying tactics because of the reality that the former vice president had no chance to upstage President Muhammadu Buhari in the election.
“Now that PDP’s presidential campaign has stalled and lost steam almost as soon as it began as a result of lack of support even among its leading members, it thinks the best way is to blackmail everyone at INEC,” the statement said.
“How could they even accuse the commission of making a U-turn on the use of smart card readers for the upcoming election? Or even raise dust over the appointment of Amina Zakari as the head of INEC’s in-house coalition centre committee, same role she played in 2015,” the group asked.
