Stop Demonising Buhari, Campaign Organisation Warns PDP

Published

GEB-Buhari

The Buhari Campaign Organisation has called on Nigerians to disregard the ongoing misinformation about the personality and record of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), as it is meant to instigate hatred against the former head of state.

“It is shocking that rather than explain itself over the multiple crises it has engendered or has failed to respond to or offer panaceas to these challenging troubles, desperate Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidates and spokesmen have stuck to the tactics of demonising the All Progressives Congress, APC, candidate in the presidential election, Muhammadu Buhari, using all sorts of red herrings, abuses, foul temper to whip up hatred against the person of the APC candidate,” a statement by Dele Alake, Director, Strategic Communications of the organisation read.

“We hereby alert the general public that, that desperation will intensify as the PDP senses the increasing possibility of losing the elections by a wide margin and once again, urge the PDP to honour the violence-free pact it recently signed by halting the violence in its statements.

“One of the red herrings being projected by the PDP and its many hatchet writers in the media is the allegation of corruption and favouritism in the defunct Petroleum Trust Fund (PTF) run by Gen Buhari under the Sani Abacha regime and a little after.

“The critics suggest the existence of dossiers and investigative reports supposedly indicting the APC candidate of unwholesome activities when he presided over the affairs of the agency. But a few days ago, former President Olusegun Obasanjo, who was supposed to have commissioned the investigation, disclosed that he was in possession of the report and nothing untoward was established against the APC candidate.

“To the astonishment of all right-thinking persons, the PDP has chosen not to believe in the authority of Obasanjo who ordered the investigation and has final say on it but prefers to allege that the man who has the fact is dead. Can there be a worse tragicomedy than this? Who really is fooling who?

“The fact is that President Jonathan’s mismanagement of inter-ethnic relations, a critical issue in a federal system like ours, is the source of the tension that pervades the nation. We wish to draw the attention of Nigerians to the list of President Jonathan’s 109-member Presidential Campaign Council published yesterday and ask if any Yoruba person of substance is on the list. It says a lot about the anti-Yoruba sentiments of President Jonathan.

“The fact is that the PDP has consistently avoided the main issues of this campaign. Apparently, it has no answers to them. The party prefers to focus on personal attacks, dreg up unsubstantiated records of the general during his military rule, make wild imputations of his motives, and label him atrociously in order to hang him,” the statement read.
