2019: Malicious Allegations against Atiku won’t help your cause, PDP tells Buhari
The Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organization, PDP-PPCO, has said allegations against its Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and his running mate, Peter Obi by the ruling party over poor campaign funding were untrue, even as it challenged President Muhammadu Buhari to focus on issues ahead of the 2019 election.
The All Progressives Congress, APC, had in a statement yesterday accused the former Vice President of looking in the direction of South Africa based drug dealers for funding.
However, in a statement late Wednesday, Director General of the PDP campaign organisation, Kola Ologbondiyan said it was unfortunate that President Muhammadu Buhari, who daily tells Nigerians of his commitment to a free, fair, credible and peaceful polls as well as issue based campaign will, within the same breath, would “mandate the officials of his party and members of his campaign to be engaging in malicious, vengeful and hate-inclined statements against respectable Nigerians whose integrity, competence and capacity overshadow his.”
The statement read: “The PPCO makes bold to state that unlike President Buhari, the PDP Presidential candidate and his running mate, have unbroken records of fulfilling responsibilities in all the offices they have occupied.”
“They come with a trajectory of successes in their various engagements in public office and have never been indicted by any statutory authority or court of competent jurisdiction in any matter whatsoever.”
“The PPCO however charges the APC to look inwards and see the array of drug barons, addicts, certificate forgers, money launderers and treasury looters that are assembled in their party and Presidential campaign council.”
“This assemblage by people of questionable characters in a party where their leaders claim integrity is one of the puzzles that 2019 election will solve.”
