2019 presidency: PDP knocks APC over protest against Peter Obi

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has said that the ruling All
Progressives Congress, APC, was fabricating spurious publications
against its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and his running mate,
Peter Obi.

Some Northern youth groups recently kicked against Obi’s choice, warning
that they will work against the party if Atiku refused to drop Obi as
his running mate.

But the PDP insisted that it was actually the APC releasing such
statements, adding that its presidential flag bearers had been
well-received by Nigerians across board.

PDP made the claim in a statement Wednesday by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan.

The party further knocked the APC and the Presidency for alleged smear campaign against the PDP candidates.

The statement said, “Having failed in their attempts to smear him with
unfounded allegations, they have now resorted to attacking our vice
presidential candidate and trying to create the impression that he is
not well received in some parts of the country.

“The PDP is already aware of how the APC has paid millions of naira to
hack writers to spin negative narratives with a view to create an
impression of disagreement and bad blood among our leaders and members
across the northern and southern divides, who have since aligned with
the Atiku/Obi ticket.

“The PDP and majority of Nigerians are aware that the APC and the
Muhammadu Buhari Presidency have been jittery since the emergence of
Atiku Abubakar as our Presidential candidate, a disposition that
heightened with the choice of Peter Obi as his running mate, hence their
frenzy to cause confusion within our fold.

“The PDP restates that the combination of Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi,
with their internationally acclaimed forthrightness, hard work,
ingenuity and managerial competencies, guarantee a prudent and
result-oriented administration that will liberate our nation from the
economic shackles which the wasteful, incompetent, and deceptive APC
administration has plunged our nation into.

“Furthermore, the Buhari Presidency and APC’s unrelenting resort to
fabrications and personal attacks against our candidates instead of
presenting their claimed achievements and programmes to Nigerians,
confirms that they have nothing to offer as they have been trending on
false performance claims and propaganda.

“On our own part, the PDP, as a Pan Nigerian and performance-oriented
political party, will never descend to the shallows with the fading APC
and the Buhari Presidency, but focus on how to salvage our nation from
the economic hardship, acute hunger and starvation as well as the daily
bloodletting that have become the order of the day under the President
Buhari administration.

“Nigerians have gone through enough pain and anguish under President
Buhari and no amount of smear campaign and personal attack on our
candidates will ever whittle their resolve to vote in Atiku Abubakar and
Peter Obi with their proven political will and commitment to the
welfare of Nigerians.”
