The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has described the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, as a “semi-illiterate”, and urged Nigerians not to vote for his kind.
This statement was made by the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Prof. Wale Oladipo at the meeting with the leaders of the PDP in the diaspora at the party’s headquarters in Abuja on Monday, December 22, 2014.
Speaking at the meeting, Prof Wole said that the APC as a political party is not a better alternative to the existing system and has no people-focus agenda that can address the issues that has characterized the county today.
“I know that God loves this country so much, he has decided that this country will remain indivisible and has decided that this country will continue to wax stronger.” He said.
The Professor also reiterated that the APC presidential candidate will draw Nigeria as far back as 1983 if he eventually emerge as the president. “God has decreed it that we continue to pilot the affairs of this country and continue to implement the transformation agenda,” he stated.
“They have passed through a motion and endorsed their perennial candidate. We have beaten him three times; we are going to beat him once again. “The next election is going to be between darkness and light, it is going to be between a cross cosmopolitan highly-focused Ph.D holder and a semi-literate jakput,” he said, adding, “Nigeria cannot afford to go back, we will continue to move forward.”
Oladipo intimated all the representatives from various chapters to understand there will be need for them to regularly articulate the manifesto of the PDP to the people wherever there is the opportunity so as to inform Nigeria about the goodwill of the party.
“You will also be called upon to counter negative propaganda that the APC is making against our party and our country in different countries of this world. “Of course, we are not perfect but our mission is perfect. We mean well for this country and we believe the country should continue to be one and that we should be a market-driven economy while at the same time, providing succor for the weak,” he said.
