2015: APC Begs PDP To Field Jonathan As Its Candidate
The All Progressives Congress has stated that it would prefer to contest the elections with President Goodluck Jonathan as the active candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party as they are certain of victory should that be the case.
Alhaji Sidi Yakubu Karasuwa, Yobe Commissioner for Water and a staunch APC supporter made the remarks.
He said: “Actually as far as we are concerned, personally I will prefer Jonathan to contest. Why? Because, he is the one we can easily be at because he has done so many things that he cannot be marketable.
“There are a lot of things under this administration of Jonathan that one can tell Nigerians and it is not something hidden. See the corruption in the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and all over the place. Today, hundreds of billions of dollars are gone; tomorrow is the same; next tomorrow is still the same? Look at his Petroleum Minister who is spending over N10billion just for charttering aircraft. What about the tragedy recently at the Immigration recruitment? The list is endless.
“So, politically talking, politics is about presenting the score card of the present administration for you to criticise or support; so, we in APC have so many things now at hand that we can present to Nigerians and tell them that Jonathan is not competent to rule this country.
“I heard some time that PDP wants to make him a consensus candidate and if that happens, we will have an upper hand. As far as APC is concerned, the contest will be a walk-over for us.”
