The False Representation of Atiku’s Statement Welcoming the Aspiration of General Buhari
The Buhari Support Group Centre strongly condemn the attempt made by agents of the Peoples Democratic Party and the Jonathan’s administration to draw a wedge in the opposition by instigating a quarrel between General Muhammadu Buhari and Alhaji Atiku Abubukar through the deliberate , criminal ,distortion, misrepresentation and falsification of the statement made by Alhaji Atiku Abubukar welcoming the decision of General Buhari to seek the nomination as the presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress, APC; to make it look like if Alhaji Abubukar maligned General Buhari and called names .
The correct version of Alhaji Abubukar statement was accurately and corrected reported in the respected Daily Trust Newspaper of Friday October 3, 2014, page 19 titled “ APC Primaries: Atiku welcomes Buhari”. There is nowhere in the said publication where Alhaji Abubukar referred to General Buhari has “somebody who bears ethno-religious bias” or a Religious bigot as maliciously and falsely reported in the Republic Report.
We are therefore pleasantly surprised and flummoxed that an online publication called Republic Reporters in its edition of 4th October, 2014 has set out to mischievously distort, falsified, slant and take out of context the statement made by Alhaji Abubukar and suggest that Alhaji Abubukar statement to the effect that the next president to be produced by the APC in the next election who must be a unifier, bridge-builder and not somebody who bear ethno-religious bias was referring to General Buhari recalled him “ a Religious Zealot”. .
We have painstakingly, dispassionately and carefully studied the statement made by Alhaji Abubukar which was published in several newspapers yesterday and the version carried by the so-called Republic Reports and found to our consternation and chagrin that some ill intentioned hiding under the ubiquity internet are being sponsored by agents of PDP and the Jonathan’s administration to instigate a fight in the opposition camp to weakened the resolve of Nigerians to vote out the clueless, corruption infested and purpose less Jonathan’s Federal Government come 2015 election.
Undoubtedly, Alhaji Abubukar was alluding to President Jonathan who has continued to use ethnicity and religion to divide Nigerians for his selfish political agenda.
It is worthy to note that the so called Republic Report is an online newspaper owned by pernicious, ultra conservative ethnic champion and religious bigots under the pay roll of the PDP and Jonathan’s administration.
It is one of the instruments created by the PDP and Jonathan’s regime to use it to divide, fragment and rule Nigerians to cover up the bumbling incompetence and purposelessness of the regime.
We therefore warn all Nigerians to take whatever comes out of the stable of the Republic Report with a pinch of the salt. It is not a reliable and credible medium. It is a propaganda outfit of the Jonathan’s administration and PDP.
As we match slowly and gradually to the 2-015 election we warn Nigerians to be wary of such false publication by an increasingly desperate PDP and Jonathan’s regime in a macabre bid to ease off pressure and divert attention from its woeful record.
We wish to reiterate that General Buhari is a nationalist to the core who believe in the indissolubility of the country and have absolute respect of all Nigerians from diverse ethnic background and faith and had shown this during his public service career as a Military Commander, Military Governor, Minister, Head of State and Chairman of the Petroleum Trust Fund.
