Tinubu, Osinbajo Oath’s Allegation Diversionary –APCFeatured, Latest News, Nigeria 2015 Election Saturday, February 28th, 2015
The opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) has described as sickening and outlandish claim by the Jonathan campaign Organization that its Chieftain, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu plans to become Vice President through the back door, saying it was designed to divert attention from the runaway success of the party’s Presidential candidate, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, at the Chatham House in London, Thursday.
APC National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, in a statement issued in London, Saturday said the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Jonathan Administration still did not have any answer to what has now become an epochal moment that has separated the wheat from the chaff.
”Our presidential candidate’s globally-acclaimed outing has presented Nigerians, and indeed the global community, with a choice between a bumbling, ineffective, incoherent, clueless, visionless and incompetent President and an assertive, knowledgeable, dignified, purposeful and principled President-in-waiting.
”Having failed to discredit that outing with a rented crowd, some of whom confessed to have been paid to carry placards they do not even understand, the PDP and the Jonathan Administration have now resorted to making nauseating claims that are totally untrue, absolutely incomprehensible and nothing but sheer bunkum,” the party attacked.
APC said the claim was the latest in a series of desperate moves by the PDP and the Jonathan Administration since the emergence of Gen. Buhari as the APC presidential candidate, and the clearest indication, yet, that they have no answer to the unstoppable momentum of a man of history.
”They have thrown everything imaginable at Gen. Buhari, but he has continued to wax stronger and stronger: They said he was not qualified, that he was too old, then they fabricated a medical report of an illness of their own choice, sponsored death wish adverts against him and instituted a myriad of court cases to stop him.
”After they failed to stop him, they went after the election itself, using the PVCs as a tool to launch a campaign for postponement and, when they realized that would not work, came up with the bogey of insecurity in the North-east to force a postponement of the election, hoping they can buy enough time to revive their electoral misfortune.
”With everything working against them, they engaged in a show of shame at The Chatham House that backfired badly, on the heels of their bare-faced lies that Gen. Buhari was hospitalized in London. The preposterous claim of a secret oath – reminiscent of what they do in their own party – by the apparently ailing spokesman of the Jonathan Campaign Organization, Femi Fani-Kayode, is their latest desperate act,” retorted APC.
The opposition declared in as much as it has so far refrained from engaging Fani-Kayode in his game of character assassination, abuses and irresponsible name calling, the party was becoming seriously concerned that he might be caving in under pressure and reverting to his undignified past of substance abuse.
