APC Campaign Dismisses Rumours Of Crisis, Says All Presidential Aspirants, Leaders Are Behind BuhariLatest News, News Saturday, January 17th, 2015
Ayodele Afoabi, Abuja – The APC Presidential Campaign Organization has dismissed as utterly false and ridiculous allegations by the ruling PDP that former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and other former APC presidential aspirants, Sam Nda-Isaiah and Rabiu Kwankwaso have abandoned the APC Presidential Campaign.
The statement, signed by Malam Garba Shehu, Director of Media and Publicity of the campaign explained that there was no iota of truth whatsoever that Atiku or other party stalwarts have distanced themselves from the campaign.
According to the statement, contrary to the deliberate falsehood being peddled by PDP, the former Vice President is currently out of the country for medical examination, and that he would be actively involved in the campaign once he is back to the country from next week.
Garba Shehu emphasized that Atiku’s commitment to the campaign in his native state, Adamawa and the nation “is total” and that “no amount of PDP’s desperate tactics of deliberate falsehoods would break the unity of the APC leaders.”
The statement said the PDP allegation was a figment of their own imagination in order to weaken the cohesion within the opposition members, adding that the “ruling party is increasingly nervous as the February 14 elections approaches.”
He advised Nigerians to ignore the “rubbish being peddled by the PDP.”
Meanwhile, former presidential aspirant Sam Nda-Isaiah is currently on holiday in the United States of America, a fact well-known to the APC.
Speaking from the US over the weekend, Nda-Isaiah said: “I am working everyday from here to ensure total victory for the APC. I am in America, and I know what the media and the public officials are saying and that they expect a change in Nigeria because things cannot continue like this. They are very worried.”
“I am in touch with Garba, Amaechi, party chairman, Kwankwaso and I am actually on my way to participate in the campaign to ensure that the change that Nigerians are earnestly desiring is enthroned in the February elections.”
Governor Rabiu Kwankanso on his own part has consistently spoken of General Buhari’s emergence as a candidate, saying that he felt like it is his own personal victory.
The Director of Media to Kwankwaso informed the APC Campaign that as at about 4:00PM (late yesterday afternoon), the Governor was on the stomp in Bichi Local Government asking for votes for Buhari, and that Kano will host the Presidential Campaign on Tuesday.
The APCPCO asked the PDP-led federal government, which controls the Police and the army to concentrate on the duty of providing a safe environment for democratic elections throughout the country, especially in view of the continuing bombing of APC party offices in Rivers State.
