APC, Buhari Campaign Team Slam Presidency
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has described the attitude of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP)-led Federal Government on the chances of being defeated by the opposition party as, ‘vague and unrealistic’.
National Chairman of the party, Chief John Oyegun reacted yesterday to a statement credited to the President’s Special Adviser on Public Affairs, Dr. Doyin Okupe, suggesting that Okupe was both ignorant and arrogant.
“It means that they are not good students of history and they are not realistic and practical,” Oyegun said. “Before now, there was no truly national alternative [party] in this nation; before now, we had the ANPP that was domiciled in the North East, we had the ACN that was domiciled in the South West and of course they had members all over the places.” said Chief John Oyegunwho
“Today man, woman,[and] child are crying for change and the dynamics are different and I pray they [PDP] continue to mis-read the signs of the changing times and that would be good for us.” added Oyegun.
In the same vein, the Buhari Campaign Organization has urged the presidency to carefully go through the declaration speech before resorting to invectives and mudslinging.
Buhari’s campaign said contrary to the statement issued by the presidency, Buhari is bringing new tidings to Nigeria, as stated in his declaration speech, among which is provision of maximum security for lives and property, provision of youth employment and tackling corruption, which has become blatant and widespread.
A statement issued yesterday by a member of the campaign organisation, Mr. Osita Okechukwu, stated that Buhari first and foremost was a patriot, who did not need to school in Harvard to appreciate that millions of Nigerians were grappling with extreme poverty, and barely eking out a living.
“It is our candid view that if President Goodluck Jonathan has in the past four years provided Nigerians with adequate security, waged strident war against corruption, and ruled according to the spirit and letters of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, as amended; the urgent call of millions of Nigerians for GMB to come and fix the country and stop the dangerous slide of Nigeria into failed state, could not have arisen,” declared Okechukwu.
According to Okechukwu, the National Bureau of Statistics Report bears unequivocal testimony to the truism that the economy continues to deteriorate, with epileptic power supply, collapse of industries, massive food imports and business uncertainty, although the government continues to announce fantastic growth figures.
“In sum, we will restrain ourselves from mudslinging and advise the presidency to do so as well as; for if we are forced to release the ungodly dossier in our docket, the country will troop the streets,” he said.
