The All Progressive Congress Presidential Campaign has asked President Goodluck Jonathan to address the nation on the massacre in Baga town, which the Amnesty International has described as the single most deadly incident since the unfortunate insurgency started in the country.
A statement from the Directorate of Media and Publicity of the APC presidential campaign on Saturday said that the PDP had dwelt so much on the issue of academic certificate of its candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari, while there are more pressing issues for the government controlled by the party to address.
“This government should not go on being insensitive. They have to be accountable to Nigerians. The issue of certificate of General Buhari is a non-issue as everyone knows that Buhari is a product of Daura Primary School, Katsina Provisional Secondary School (now Government College, Katsina) and the Nigerian Military Training College. This is in addition to several other courses he attended at home and abroad.”
The statement said further that “while the PDP government has failed in its duty and responsibilities to the citizens and the nation, they have intensified effort to pull wool over the eyes of Nigerians.”
It said a leading member of the party, Governor Babangida Aliyu of Niger State, a few days ago, informed Nigerians that in politics, you must tell lies.
It said Nigerians should take their cue from there.
“Unfortunately, PDP has become a political party that is so fixated with keeping an incompetent government in power and is lustfully engaged in pursuing a non-issue about an individual’s academic qualifications,” the statement concluded. Agency report
