Jonathan’s Re-election Campaign Amid Worsening Insecurity Callous, Insensitive, Says APC

Published

on

jona-apcThe All Progressives Congress has described as utterly callous and insensitive, the ongoing campaign by the so-called GEJites, a pro-Jonathan group, for the President’s re-election right at the same spot where the ‘Bring Back Our Girls’ campaigners have been staging daily protests and sit-outs for the safe return of the over 200 schoolgirls.

In a statement issued in Abuja on Thursday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, APC said the message being conveyed to all Nigerians is that the re-election of President Goodluck Jonathan takes priority over anything else, including the security and welfare of citizens.

It said, “Were this not to be so, no responsible group will choose this time, when over 200 schoolgirls have been missing for over 80 days and the terror group Boko Haram is daily killing and maiming Nigerians, to launch a misguided re-election campaign for the President.

“If their daughters were among the missing school girls, will they be launching a political campaign for re-election rather than pushing for the girls’ release?

“To show their contempt for decency and as if they were intent on inflicting more pain on the parents and guardians of the missing girls, they decided to position their campaign instrument, wheel-mounted electronic billboards, right at the Unity Fountain in Abuja where committed and patriotic Nigerians have been holding their own daily campaign for the safe return of the girls”.

The opposition party said much as it may deny, it is clear that the Jonathan Administration that has surpassed itself in sheer cluelessness in providing purposeful leadership to stop the daily carnage in the country and ensuring the return of the missing girls, has apparently been secretly funding different groups to campaign for it.

It said, “First there is the Protectors of Nigerian Posterity, then the Goodluck Initiative for Transformation 2015 and now the GEJites.

“With the expensive newspaper, television and Social Media adverts that these nebulous groups are running, it is clear they are being financed from a bottomless war chest, to which taxpayers have been unwilling contributors.

“It is sad that a government that apparently cannot adequately fund the war on terror, a government that has lost the initiative to terrorists, a government that cannot provide jobs for its teeming army of unemployed, a government that is running Nigeria aground has suddenly found huge funds to engage in a re-election campaign that is going nowhere, touting tokenism as achievements”.

APC said if the administration does not endorse the callousness and insensitivity of the groups, it should waste no time in publicly denouncing them and then call them to order.

    I used to like APC before now but events but today the party has become nothing less than a pocket of laughing stock . Political statements emanating from the high command of party seam to like an outboust pueril verosity , colurless verbiage . Chibok is more or less the only tool they use not only in Nigeria but world wide . From all indications this pary looks friendly with the insurgents thinking that the victory of theit party rests on meaningless propagander . Their inability to set pace is mote or less a big undoing to them . APC became a worrisome aparatus the moment they finished thr so called party membership registration . APC controlled states became shadows of themselves. Ekiti State molested students and workers administratively . Oshiomole insulting and disgracing teachers coupled with sacking them with ignominy . He is calling them back after a year sack . Creating dubious and unconstitutional local governments at the peril of the masses . Osun State has betrayed the sanctity of meaningful education . Tinubu has become the generalisimo on the states . Unending loans with no corressponding benefits in the lives of the people they swarn to serve . I do not impute motives but I can clearly foresee a presidential primart that is going to nail the the coffin on APC . Let us wait and see .

    IF APC HAS S SOLUTION TO INSURGENCY, IT SHOULD PROFFER IT. ITS NEGATIVE CRITICISM IS BECOMING EMBARRASSING AND WILL NOT WIN THE ELECTION. APART FROM INSURGENCY, JONATHAN HAS DONE A LOT. REMEMBER NO NIGERIA, NO APC. APC MUST CHANGE ITS TACTICS TO HAVE A NIGERIA TO RULE.
