Stop Dragging APC Into Your Crisis – Group Tells PDP

Published

on

Leaders of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have been urged by the All Progressives Congress Grassroots Governance Group (APC-G3) to refrain from involving the ruling party in their thorny problems.

The recommendation was made in a statement released on Tuesday in Abuja by Kingsley Ndunagu, the APC-deputy G3’s national publicity secretary.

Ndunagu expressed concern that Sen. Walid Jibrin, the chairman of the PDP Board of Trustees, was attempting to impose religion on the APC’s selection of presidential and vice presidential candidates.
.
“It is wrong of Jibrin to say that the problems arising from PDP’s presidential primary could not be compared with the situation in the APC’s Muslim-Muslim ticket issues.

“The PDP leaders are aware that their party may not even come out second in the presidential election.

“This informed their desperation to drag the formidable Tinubu/Shettima ticket into their trouble,’’ he stated.

Ndunagu emphasised that Christians and Muslims have been living together as one in the country and would continue to do so.

He challenged PDP to explain to Nigerians how it intends to build national unity having reneged on the agreement to let power rotate.

“Their selfishness did not allow them to acknowledge the unity and stability of Nigeria like the APC did.

“Christians and Muslims have been living together in Nigeria, but selfish politicians are trying to divide us.

“The PDP should explain what they will tell Nigerians who want to live as one, how they want to unite our country.

“This is the same people who called for power rotation in 2014, but are now working against it.

“The APC as a responsible party wants all Nigerians to be one, irrespective of religion and ethnicity.’’ Ndunagu stressed.

He argued that APC leaders, particularly President Muhammadu Buhari and northern governors went for power rotation.

“That is the way to go in a multi-ethnic society. From all indications, PDP may not even be in the second position in the presidential election, hence their desperation.

“Nigerians must see the Tinubu-Shettima ticket as being here to serve the country, and not a particular group of people,’’ Ndunagu added. (NAN)

Falsehood, Disinformation Won’t Win Elections, Tinubu Tells Obi

Published

on

Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate for the All Progressives Congress (APC), has urged Peter Obi, the candidate for the Labour Party, to warn his supporters against spreading false information.

Speaking on behalf of Asiwaju, Bayo Onanuga, the Director of Media and Communications for the Tinubu Campaign Organization (TCO), claimed that Obi’s supporters have been spreading false information to the public in an effort to harm the APC candidate.

Recall that a report emerged online a few days ago, that the Ghanian President, Nana Akufo-Addo wrote a letter to Asiwaju, asking him to step down and support Peter Obi and take care of his health.

The President had via his official Twitter handle, debunked the report, calling it fake news, stating that it is a product of deliberate mischief with the intent to deceive the public.

Reacting, the TCO media Director asked Obi to disavow his supporters who are employing fake news against the former Lagos State Governor.

“We have come to a point where it becomes imperative to tell Obi to show leadership and disavow his supporters who are employing fake news and disinformation as deliberate tools to deceive and poison the minds of unsuspecting Nigerians,” Onanuga stated.

“I have been in PDP for many years, they have nothing to show to people and we have been neglected by the party.
