“Allegation of Plot To Assassinate Jonathan, Wike Others Laughable”Featured, Latest News, Nigeria 2015 Election Saturday, March 7th, 2015
The Greater Together Campaign Organisation in Rivers State has described as joke of the millennium, allegations by the Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, that the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the state plans to frame-up and consequently assassinate President Goodluck Jonathan, its governorship candidate, Mr. Ezebuwon Nyesom Wike and other members of the party.
The Campaign Organisation has therefore, called on the public to disregard such and similar allegations by PDP, saying they are nothing better than beer parlour gossip shared under the influence of alcohol.
In its reaction on Saturday through Mrs. Ibim Semenitari, the Director of Communications, the Greater Together Campaign Organisation said the PDP should be ashamed of its tactics to curry public sympathy in the face of impending defeat in a few weeks from now.
“This is the first time in Nigeria’s political history that a party in power at the national level is too afraid of meeting an opposition party at the polls. It’s a shame that PDP, despite its boast of having the numbers and capacity, has gone senile in seeking sympathy and no longer votes. Political parties, prior to elections, seek for votes but in a reversal of sequence, PDP now crawls on its knees begging for sympathy”.
GTCO which is the organisation campaigning for the election of Dr. Dakuku Adol Peterside as governor in Rivers State, said the latest allegation by PDP is its open confession that the chance to continue its evil grip on power in Nigeria has reached an irreversible end.
“PDP has had about 16 years grip on Nigeria through the people’s votes, but bungled such a golden opportunity. PDP has had 16 uninterrupted years to change the fortunes of Nigerians but has left them poorer. PDP had 16 chances to launch the country to greatness but preferred to elevate corruption to national culture. Now that Nigerians have given the clearest vocal and visual notice to PDP they would choose change in lieu of a reactionary system; strong national currency and vibrant economy in lieu of bastardised Naira and high cost of living, PDP, better known as “a nest of killers”, is now afraid to face Nemesis. Its latest outburst is nothing but the last cry of a drowning man before he finally sinks. Rivers people and indeed Nigerians, should ignore them and show them no sympathy.
“The allegation that the Rivers State Government and the APC plan to assassinate President Jonathan and Wike, two desperados Nigerians have rejected, who will be trounced at the March 28 and April 11 elections, respectively, is a hogwash and should be dismissed. PDP never knew that the day of retribution would come, and is face-to-face with it. The party doesn’t deserve any sympathy from Nigerians. It should be rejected at the polls resoundingly”.
