Apologize At Your Rallies, Rather Than Campaigning, APC Tells PDP

Published

The  All Progressives Congress (APC) has tasked the People Democratic Party (PDP) to apologize for the damage allegedly done to the Nation for 16 years instead of embarking on campaign at their zonal rallies.

APC, however, stated that major two issues that will form it campaign include; the personality of the presidential candidate of the PDP and the numerous achievements of the current administration in the last few years.

Speaking with newsmen on Sunday in Abuja, APC National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Oniru, said his party expected PDP leaders to first of all visited all the zones and apologize instead if jumping into rally.

When asked on reason why his party is yet to constitute National Campaign Council, Onilu said: “Well, we don’t have any problem at all and we are very okay. Because campaign as you may know is just one aspect of it. There are many other platforms to engage with the people. Rally, is just one.

“And it is actually the impact of rally not that we are not going go round the country because what we expect the PDP to do in this rally is to go to the zones and apologize profusely. Demonstrate remorsefulness which they have failed to do. And they keep going to those zones for rally to insult people.

“When we go out for campaign, we will be doing two things because this campaign for APC is about two issues. Character of persons who have come forward to say they want to rule us. We are going to bring character into focus. And for the candidates of the PDP we won’t go too far stressing to review who you are but the person you work with under whom you work.”

According to Onilu, former president Olusegun Obasanjo is the best person to review the character of former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar. And he copiously did that in his book already and we will bring that into focus.

“He (Obasanjo) told us he found him to be very unreliable person, somebody that is not trustworthy, that he found him to be somebody who compromises the system for personal gain. And we have evidence to that and we must bring that to focus. And we must continue to thank President Obasanjo for being so patriotic to have alerted the country to the danger inherent in bringing somebody like former Vice President Atiku close to Nigeria’s assets and resources.

“The second leg of our campaign, will be stewardship. We have been in government for three and half years. We are going to give stewardship. For every kilometer of road that we have done is a reminder to the systemic years of waste under the previous governments. For every rail track that we have laid is a reminder to the systemic wastefulness of waste for the continuous increase in enrolment of students across the nation because of the now very inviting school environment of school feeding. It is a reminder to the 13.5 million pupils who were out of school under PDP.

“So, the campaign will be able stewardship and what we have use the 3 and half years to do. All the abandoned projects that we have fixed. The issue of diversification that for four decades and the 16 years of PDP became mere mantra and a reality.

“Check our GDP, it is no longer a mono product economy. It is now an economy that you have contribution from Agriculture and from solid minerals, making solid impact in our GDP. That is diversification. And all this by the time we bring them to bear and Nigerians are going to move by this December for Christmas and the new year. We are also alerting them that the road that were unpassable they will see progress that has been made over the country. And Christmas after Christmas they will continue to see improvement.”
