- APC has asked PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, to campaign based on issues facing the nation
- The party asked Atiku to desist from verbally attacking its candidate, President Buhari
- The APC has also asked Atiku to give Nigerians reason why he should be elected as president in 2019
The All Progressives Congress has advised the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, to dwell more on his agenda for the country, rather than dissipating energies on raising puerile allegations daily.
The party was reacting to Abubakar’s several attacks on President Buhari, where in one of them he accused unidentified relations of Buhari of buying up shares in Etisalat, NAN reports.
APC publicity secretary, Malam Lanre Isa-Onilu, said Abubakar may be exhibiting early signs of depression, resulting from obvious frustration as he is unable to focus on his campaign.
Isa-Onilu said: “Otherwise, Atiku should tell Nigerians why a discredited person like him should be elected as President instead of raising puerile allegations on a daily basis. President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC), not his programmes for the country appear to be his main campaign issues."
Isa-Onilu said Nigerians are desirous of campaign that focuses on issues that matter to them and that is what is expected from all candidates.
He said: "For Atiku and his PDP co-travellers, the only interest is to grab power and continue where they stopped in their avarice.
“The APC administration is eager to showcase the impressive achievements we have recorded in the last three and half years. This is the campaign that matters to us and this is what Nigerians are interested in.
"The trajectory is exciting as we see a brighter future shaping up. We won’t yield to the PDP’s shenanigans. The obvious strategy of the PDP is to truncate the country’s journey towards economic buoyancy and social stability. We will not play the PDP’s game. PDP is acting an anti-people’s script. President Buhari remains unshaken by the desperate efforts being made by Atiku and the PDP to blackmail the APC government. Everyone who was involved in corrupt practices would be brought to justice.
“PDP is not offering any alternative to the progressive course this government is pursuing. It is actually apparent that the party is not contesting the 2019 elections to redeem itself, least of doing any good for the country, but simply to seize power to escape justice for the grievous crimes committed against the people of this country.
“Nigerians won’t be fooled by the rapacious PDP gang. Never!"

Recall that Legit.ng earlier reported that Atiku raised allegation that President Buhari and his relatives own billion dollar shares in a Nigerian bank as well as a telecommunication company.
This was contained in a statement issued by Phrank Shaibu, one of his aides on Wednesday, December 26. Atiku said the call was necessary in view of reports that members of the president’s family own substantial share in Etisalat Nigeria, estimated at $2 billion.
