Focus on the Real Campaign, Stop Playing Games – PDP tells APC



GEJ AND BUHARIThe Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has advised the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its Presidential Candidate, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, to work toward winning followers genuinely instead of applying cheap diversionary tactics.

The advice is contained in a statement issued by Olisa Metuh, the party’s National Publicity Secretary on Monday in Abuja.

The statement quoted Metuh as saying that “APC should focus on real campaign, the so called change agenda should be based on issues and not on change of dressing and religious gathering.

“This election is not about political window-dressing and dramatising, what will count is record of performance and antecedents which President Jonathan stands taller than Gen. Buhari.’’

He said it was not surprising that the APC and its presidential candidate resorted to organizing kangaroo opinion rating.

This, according to him, was an attempt to cover up their inadequacies and manipulate public perception in their favour.

“This APC phantom poll has been designed in a way to make the Nigerian public believe that 75% of the voting population is in support of Gen. Buhari.

“Our findings reveal that APC leaders are intensifying effort to compromise some section of the media to ensure that the poll packaged by its foreign consultants is widely publicised.’’

He said part of the strategy was a disguised mobile phone balloting application being circulated by the APC, whereby curious click elicits a thank-you message from them.

This, he added, automatically registered the unsuspecting phone users as having voted in support of Gen. Buhari.

The PDP scribe said the measure was to deceive the public and truncate the country’s democratic process.

“Our final advice to the APC is that it should focus on real campaign and stop playing to the gallery.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

    Can we just have peace for once, why cant we just focus on issues rather than insulting GEJ/Buhari. The only thing that will count is if we all go all out to vote.
