The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has asked the federal government and President Muhammadu Buhari to speak out on the allegation of a move to declare Friday, May 26, a public holiday as a ploy to stop the Supreme Court from sitting to deliver judgment on the disqualification case against the APC Vice Presidential candidate in the 2023 general elections, Sen. Kashim Shettima, over double nomination, already scheduled for that date.

The PDP also called on the federal government to come clean on a further allegation, which is also in the public domain, that the All Progressives Congress, APC is mounting pressure on the Department of State Services, DSS to advise President Buhari to declare the public holiday.

The national publicity secretary of PDP, Hon Debo Ologunagba, said the ominous silence by the federal government in the face of such grave allegations is heightening tension across the country and has the capacity to trigger a widespread crisis if not immediately addressed.

Ologunagba in a statement said, such a reported sinister plot by the APC against the Supreme Court is consistent with the insensitivity, manipulation, abuse of power and process promoted by the APC as an act of governance in the last eight years
