Buhari Campaign Posters, Handwork of The PDP – Fashakin
The National Publicity Secretary of the Congress for Progressive Change, CPC Mr. Rotimi Fashakin has said that the campaign poster announcing former Head of State, Maj.-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), as the consensus presidential candidate of the yet-to-be registered All Progressives Congress in the 2015 elections posters did not emanate from him.
The posters said to be sponsored by the Forum of all Progressive Congress Youths surfaced in Abuja on Monday, with the logo of APC on it, describing Buhari as the only saviour of Nigeria.
Although a close look at the posters revealed that those behind the posters made a mistake of misspelling the acronym of APC as “APG,” an inscription on one of the posters read, “2015: Here comes the only savior for Nigeria. APG candidate for 2015 presidential election.
“Support the All Progressive Congress. Support Buhari: The only man for the job.”
But Fashakin dismissed the posters, saying there was no way the APC could come up with the idea of consensus, adding that those who had been preaching consensus and automatic tickets might be responsible for the posters.
Fashakin said, “The enemy is at the corner. Those posters did not come from the General and he was not behind them. In APC, we would do direct primary to pick our presidential candidate. We would not use consensus to pick our candidate for the presidential election.
“It is the Peoples Democratic Party that has been calling for automatic tickets for its aspirants and that President Goodluck Jonathan should be its automatic candidate. In APC, that is alien to us. Nigerians and our supporters should not be varied away because of the posters. Definitely, the enemy is around the corner.”
On his part, the former head, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari said his followers and members of the APC should disregard the posters, saying they were pasted by those he described as enemies of democracy.
He believes that the coming together of the opposition political parties was already giving the ruling party headaches, adding that it was evident that “there are enemies around the corner.”
