"We have no candidate for the office of the Senate President, because we have a fit person occupying the position for now. We are behind him and we can’t abandon him just because he is undergoing trial. Anybody can be put on trial, but the question we should ask is whether the trial is political or not. Does the trial have merit? When we see the merit of the case, we will take position. But for now, there is nothing like that.”he told Punch

PDP accuses APC of planning to rig the election - Read statement

Text of press conference by the Director of Media and Publicity, PDP presidential campaign organization, Femi Fani-Kayode.  

Ladies and gentlemen of the press, It is with a heavy heart that we are compelled to share with the Nigerian public the following sensitive information which we believe, if not handled properly and looked into, is serious enough to affect the outcome of Saturday’s presidential election in a negative way. 
Before we go into detail permit me to make an important assertion which cannot be overstated or over-emphasised. That assertion is as follows: the PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation and our candidate President Goodluck Jonathan are not in the least bit worried about what the outcome of Saturday’selection will be. We believe that we have the backing and full support of the Nigerian people and we believe that we shall not only win but that we shall win convincingly.

PDP To APC -- Enough Is Enough.

Chief Olisa Metuh finished apc with this statement
“Nigerians have waited for too long for the APC's roadmap with convention after convention (two in less than a month) producing only humbug, claptrap and a regurgitation of worn-out, anachronistic clichés.
APC is a disgrace.
There is no occasion they won't talk about GEJ or FG, it baffles me to see them speak more about GEJ and PDP, instead of selling themselves and telling us their roadmap.
Okay nah.
