Daniel Bwala, the Alhaji Atiku Abubakar Campaign Organization’s spokesperson, on Friday attacked Adebayo Onanuga, the Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu Campaign Organisation’s spokesperson, calling him “a meddlesome invader” for his remarks on the crisis roiling the People’s Democratic Party.
He claimed that the Nigeria the All Progressives Congress received in 2015 was undoubtedly not the Nigeria we know today.
He added that the APC has factional executives in more than 20 states.
Bwala spoke in a statement titled, “APC prescribing medicine for the ailment buffeting itself”.
According to him, while foreign investors are fleeing the country with the speed of light, local investors are disillusioned by the incoherent and inconsistent economic polities of APC led government.
The statement read in detail, “I read with utter shock a statement credited to Bayo Onanuga, Asiwaju Campaign Council surrogate, discussing PDP affair like a meddlesome interloper. In the statement, surprisingly he was advocating for and prescribing medication for the very ailment killing APC
“Imagine a party with no balls to conduct free and fair elections, congress or convention. A party with factional executives in over 20 states, a party that less than a week to campaign kick off has not had any National Working Committee meetings to pass any resolution or NEC meeting to ratify resolutions, owing to deeply seated and existential crisis rocking its very foundation, having the temerity to speak about PDP that has done all those and poised to commence campaigning.
“Sometimes, I shudder when I read or hear APC talking about party or progress. This is a party that is administered like a monarchy of Emilokans and their subjects teaching about unity or prosperity. Because of their abysmal performance and total failure in all their promises to the Nigerian people in security, economy and anti-corruption.
“A party that sensing utter defeat at the polls, resorts to making efforts to compromise INEC, blackmail members of the opposition, threatening the lives of spokespersons of the opposition parties and identifying judges to corrupt ahead of the polls.
“Infact, APC is so divided that they are presently blackmailing the President as supporting the opposition because he vowed to deliver a credible and fair process. Where lies the popularity and hopes of the party and its flag bearer when he is allegedly plotting to remove their chairman, undermine all those who stood against him at their primaries?
“If there is any party that would talk about PDP amd Atiku, certainly it is not a spent party like APC whose mention provoke and offend the sensibilities of Nigerians. A party that seeks to use identity politics of division to retain power cannot be heard to talk when people are talking.
“Atiku Abubakar is poised to winning elections for our party. He is determined to undertake the onerous task of uniting and rebuilding Nigeria; he is not deterred by any melodramatic activities. The party is solidly behind him, recognising that by the electronic transmission of results, the voting power is now fully with the people. Nigerians quite frankly know the things they deeply care about and can’t wait to vote along those lines.
“The Nigeria that was handed to APC In 2015 is certainly not the Nigeria we see of today, certainly not for the better. We knew how much the price of petrol, diesel, food in the market were and what they are now. Nigerians knew the value of naira per dollar, the price of air fairs amd the state of our economy. Looking at the inflation rate and the speed with which it changes is the reason we have capital flight.
“Foreign investors are fleeing the country with the speed of light whilst local investors are disillusioned by the incoherent and inconsistent economic polities of APC led government. The case of the more you see, the less you understand. Students are out of school, bandits ravaging our land with APC calling them comedians. Please APC park well let humans beings talk.”
