The party denied the alleged denial as "part of the last kicks of a dying horse, which the Buhari Presidency now represents".

Adams Oshiomhole, National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), says when he was President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), he didn't find it hard to mobilise "area boys" in Lagos for protests.

The opposition party has however vowed that it will still hold its presidential rally in Abuja not minding any further encumbrance President Muhammadu Buhari and his APC government may attempt to foist.

"If there is any truth to what the PDP has said, it is not APC and it is not our policy", he told AFP.

Addressing a press conference on Saturday in Abuja, the Director Media and Publicity of the PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan said after making payment and obtaining a receipt to use the venue on Saturday, the Federal Capital Territory (FCTA) later invited them to go and collect their money.

"While we regret the inconveniences caused by the insensitive action of the Buhari Presidency and APC, we wish to inform that a rescheduled date for the rally will be communicated soon", the PDP spokesman said.

"On this account alone, majority of Nigerians will reject President Buhari at the polls come February 16".

The party therefore, could not go on with its campaign in Abuja, as planned.

"From reports reaching us, it is not also out of place for the Buhari Presidency and the APC to use this measure to test the will of Nigerians as precursor to their rigging plots".

President Muhammadu Buhari arrived the venue at 2.46pm.

"The PDP appreciates the commitment of Nigerians, particularly, those who have already converged on Abuja for this mega rally". The APC can't stop us from campaigning in Abuja.
