- PDP Trying To Cause Disharmony In APC Through Fake News- APC
- Calls For Arrest Of PDP’s Publicity Secretary, Ologunagba
- Tinubu Responsible For Attack On Buhari In Kano- PDP
By Babajide Okeowo
The All-Progressives Congress (APC) has denied any form of attack on President Muhammadu Buhari in Kano State.
This is according to Bayo Onanuga, Director, Media and Publicity, APC Presidential Campaign Council.
He described the report of the attack as imaginary and being peddled by the Peoples Democratic Party since the party has nothing tangible to tell Nigerians from its crumbling Presidential Campaign.
It would be recalled that the PDP through its National Publicity Secretary (NPS) Debo Ologunagba had accused the APC Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu of being responsible for an attack on Buhari in Kano State by some miscreants during his visit to Kano State on Monday.
The main opposition party while condemning the act described it as an organized attack on the person of the President which it said is “outrightly treasonable and a sacrilegious assault on our national sovereignty which must be condemned by all.“
“He said, “Our Party is alarmed that this attack is part of APC’s Presidential Candidate’s alleged plot to undermine the Presidency, cause confusion, trigger violence in the country, disrupt the conduct of the 2023 general elections and derail our democracy; having realized that he cannot win in a peaceful, free and fair electoral process”.
Reacting, Onanuga lampooned the PDP for masterminding fake news against the APC presidential candidate and trying vainly to cause disharmony within the APC family.
“We were not surprised to read of the imaginary attack on the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria being peddled by the Peoples Democratic Party since the party has nothing tangible to tell Nigerians from its crumbling Presidential Campaign.
This invented attack on President Muhammadu Buhari must have happened only in the fertile imagination of PDP National Publicity Secretary, one Debo Ologunagba..
Nigerians should disregard this fake news from a party that has lost touch with reality and suffering the agony of violating its own rules on power rotation.
Just as it has been masterminding fake news against the APC presidential candidate and trying vainly to cause disharmony in the APC family, we believe the party may have planned to embarrass President Buhari in Kano and then put the blame on host Governor Ganduje and Tinubu.
This is because PDP has of recently morphed from being a Buhari virulent critic to strangely becoming a Buhari spokesperson! The last time it issued a self-serving misinterpretation of Asíwájú’s statement in Abeokuta as an attack on President Buhari.
It should be quite obvious to Nigerians that the knowledge of the impending defeat of PDP at the coming presidential poll has pushed the party and its candidate into a frenzied hallucinatory mode of the mindless, ridiculous, ludicrous litany of lies and fabrications against APC and its candidate.
The PDP is a drowning party feverishly clawing at any straw of lies and lashing out in all delusional directions to keep afloat – but sink it will.
We believe Nigerians are not taken in by the jejune antics.
The PDP now runs the most unethical, pernicious and inelegant, abusive, obtrusive and nationally divisive campaign in the history of electioneering in Nigeria.
The other day it was the PDP candidate Atiku who, out of frustration, stated publicly that the north must not vote for anybody outside the region. It’s the same trend that characterizes the PDP campaign ever since.
That surely is a sign of defeat, and readiness to sacrifice the unity of this country on the altar of unbridled inordinate ambition.
Nigerians are wiser and would never allow PDP centrifugal forces to take our nation down with it. All men and women of good conscience should rise up and use their votes to send PDP and its band of desperados to the dustbin of history where they rightfully belong.
Contrary to PDP fabrication, President Buhari was warmly received in Kano State today by the good people and government of the state where he commissioned eight hugely impactful projects including an overhead bridge with an underpass and a cancer centre.
On Sunday, we alerted the nation to the plot by PDP to orchestrate and execute many evil plans to defame, ridicule and delegitimise President Muhammadu Buhari and our presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Nigerians of goodwill would have seen by now that we didn’t raise a false alarm in our statement issued on 29 January 2023 where we detailed the evil machinations of PDP and their hirelings.
Only the evil mind of the PDP could conceive an attack on a President of Nigeria.
It is not impossible that PDP through its paid agents would organise miscreants to stage-manage an attack. But we are sure the security agencies are capable of foiling any planned attack on the President and anyone who is caught in such an unholy plot now or in the future will have himself or herself to blame.
We call on the security agencies especially the Police and Department of State Services to immediately arrest PDP National Publicity Secretary for interrogation over this imaginary attack” he stated.
