The All Progressives Congress (APC) spokesman, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, has fired back at President Goodluck Jonathan over his claims that the President Muhammadu Buhari’s APC-led administration is full of proganda and lies.
We had earlier reported that Jonathan while receiving one of the national chairmanship aspirants of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prof Tunde Adeniran at his private residence in Abuja, said that PDP performed well for 16 years while the current ruling party, APC, has not done anything meaningful for Nigerians.
However, Abdullahi, who served in the Jonathan government until he was relieved in March 2014, reacted to Jonathan’s claim, saying: “I doubt that President Jonathan actually said these words you have reported because he would be exposing himself to reactions that would not be edifying of his status as a statesman by so doing. Secondly, I know the former President to be of even temperament.
“Only a few days ago, I read that he was counselling his party on the choice of Chairman and Publicity Secretary. Statements like these wouldn’t represent an example of the kind of attitude he was canvassing.
“But if he truly said that, I would say with due respect that he may need to commission a more dispassionate study of how and why APC won the 2015 Presidential election.
“To say that APC won the election simply by deceiving the people would be too simplistic and may even be interpreted as an insult to the millions of Nigerians that voted the APC into power.”
