June 12: Buhari APC, Are Tormented By Guilt of Violating Electoral Processes – PDP
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has lambasted President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) for thinking that moving major events of its planned Presidential inauguration from May 29 to June 12, the democracy Day, can confer any form of legitimacy to the outcome of the 2019 Presidential election which it alleged was rigged.
