Osinbajo’s Emergence A Sign Tinubu Will Be Ruling Nigeria If APC Wins In 2015 – PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has criticised the All Progressives Congress (APC) for taking ‘too long’ to come up with a vice-presidential candidate, describing it as the height of incompetence.

The PDP also described Osinbajo’s emergence as an indication of Buhari’s readiness to surrender the APC patrimony to Tinubu.

“Our citizens should indeed be concerned about this: That it took the APC, six days to produce its vice presidential candidate and that the founder and funder of the party, Tinubu, as always, had his way. No doubt, this is how Tinubu is going to impose his mercantilist interest on major decisions affecting the entire country,” a statement issued by its national publicity secretary, Olisa Metuh said.

“By the choice of Osinbajo, a well known acolyte of Tinubu, who served under him as Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, the APC, General Buhari and Tinubu have boldly recreated their well-known notoriety for sectional and personal interests.

“It is particularly worrisome that General Buhari has surrendered his first official responsibility of choosing a running mate, invariably his powers to Tinubu even before he goes to the field to ask for votes.

“This is not surprising of Buhari, who has consistently exhibited a track record of incompetence. This is the same man who as military head of state surrendered all his powers to his second in command.

“This is the problem with the APC, a political party built on the narrow interests of very few individuals. Any political party that subjects its collective will to the whims of an individual, as it is with the APC, is indeed not ready for leadership,” the PDP said.
