ATTACKS ON BUHARI: Group urges INEC to caution PDP

The
Buhari Campaign Organisation (BCO) yesterday urged the Independent National
Electoral Commission (INEC) to call the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to
order over what it termed hate speech and campaign of calumny against President
Muhammadu Buhari.
The group described PDP’s
statements on President Buhari’s position on the state of the country’s economy
and his refusal to assent to the Electoral Act (Amendment) Bill 2018 as
ridiculous and misleading.
In a
statement in Abuja by its Director of Communications and Strategic Planning,
Mallam Gidado Ibrahim, the president’s support group described certain
statements issued recently by the major opposition party against Buhari as the
antics of a drowning political party, whose plot to rig the 2019 general elections
had been scuttled.

On Buhari’s words to governors at the weekend that they should expect tough
times ahead, BCO said rather than describing the president’s admittance to
impending economic hardship as a sign of failure, the PDP ought to have praised
the president for the courage to speak up when necessary.

The
group noted: “Because of its 16 years of leud leadership, the PDP is
ill-prepared for the role of constructive opposition. If they don’t have
anything to say or do, the PDP can as well go to the Sahara Desert to dig a
well, rather than making hate speeches and throwing tantrums everywhere in the
name of opposition. We urge the electoral umpire to call the PDP to order.
“It is
pathetic that the PDP prefers the president to lie to Nigerians about the state
of the economy. What is wrong in admitting to where challenges exists? The
PDP’s modus operandi for 16 years was to continue to mislead the people. We all
know President Buhari very well; he won’t lie to Nigerians. Rather, he will
tell them the truth, while working hard to fix the problem.
“For
the records, Nigerians elected and trusted President Buhari to tell them the
truth at all times and he will not deviate from that. The problem that still
bedevils the economy today is still a fallout of PDP’s 16 years of
irresponsible governance”.
On the
amended electoral bill, BCO said Buhari was right to have declined his assent
to the bill, even as it insisted that the amended electoral bill presented to
the president was a landmine the PDP would have relied on to rig its way back
to power in 2019.
Ibrahim
stated: “A Leopard can never change its skin. The PDP thought they are smart
but the president and his party are smarter. No more will the PDP be allowed to
execute its sinister motives. They want to use the amended electoral bill to
rig their way back to power again in 2019 so that they can continue to plunder
the economy of this country. We say capital NO!
“The
PDP has demonstrated once again that it means no good for this country and its
people. The president will not fold his hands and watch the PDP rig its way
back to power to destroy the economy he is toiling to rebuild. Knowing that
they have been rejected by Nigerians, the only way they think they can foist
themselves on this country again is through the back door.
“Their
plan to engage a Russian hacking agent to infiltrate INEC’s data base during
the next general elections has been unravelled.”
