The presidency on Wednesday warned APC to stop trying to undermine President Goodluck Jonathan‘s administration by leveling false allegations against his administration.
Special Adviser to the President on Political Affairs, Rufai Alkali, gave the warning response to APC’s allegations that Jonathan was conducting “last minute dubious activities.”
Punch reports that Alkali said the following via a statement:
The allegation is immature, reckless and out of tune with the President’s desire and patriotic commitment to a peaceful transfer of power.
Nigerians will recall that shortly after the results of the presidential elections were announced, President Goodluck Jonathan inaugurated a high powered transition committee to plan and organise a hitch-free transition programme for the inauguration of the incoming administration.
Surprisingly, it took the APC more than three weeks to wake up to its responsibility to constitute its own transition committee. How then can they turn round to accuse the government of frustrating the transition programme?
By the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Jonathan remains in office up to the 29th of May 2015 when he formally hands over to the incoming President.
Governance is a serious business. With the sudden and unexpected concession of victory to them, it appears that the APC is beginning to face the full reality of managing the great challenges of a complex nation.
Their recent, frequent and unnecessary attacks on the President clearly shows that they are losing their nerves and are beginning to lay foundation to justify their failures in the near future and we want to remind them that Nigerians are not ready to accept any excuses for their failure.
They promised to bring change so they must bring positive change to the well being of Nigerians and urgently too.
