The Atiku Presidential Campaign Organisation Offers APC A Free Crash Course on How To Run an Issue-Based
Abuja, Nigeria, 14 November, 2018: Just last week, our
attention was drawn to a statement by the All Progressives
Congress falsely accusing the Presidential candidate of the
Peoples Democratic Party of attempting to smuggle in large
sums of money into the nation for the purpose of funding his
In the said statement from November 5, 2018, the APC
called for security agents to be on the watch to prevent the
imaginary ‘illicit cash’ from entering Nigeria.
Thus, we are surprised that the same APC which made that
false allegation has made a 180-degree turn by releasing a
new statement contradicting their earlier statement and
alleging that the former Vice President is broke.
In their statement, they contend that ‘Atiku Abubakar is at a
crossroads on how to source funds for the 2019
Our response is to urge the APC to make up its mind on
which lie it wants to tell the Nigerian people and then stick
to that lie. As a party in power, there ought to be more
stability in the APC at least to give the public and the
international community some assurance that the party is
not imploding. No wonder there is a lot of policy flip flop
under the APC administration!
We know that the APC is desperate to distract attention from
the recent indictment of Vice President Osinbajo by the
House of Representatives for Grand corruption and the
interrogation of their chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, by the
Department of State Security on charges of collecting huge
bribes to influence party primaries.
Given the sordid state of things in the APC and its imminent
implosion over money politics, we are not surprised that the
APC is throwing wild allegations at former Vice President
Atiku Abubakar in the hope that something will stick.
Our advise to the APC is that they should send their
spokesman to the Atiku Presidential Campaign
Organisation for a two weeks crash course on how to run
an issue-based campaign that is guided by civility and
While the APC is throwing about baseless accusations, our
candidate, Atiku Abubakar, is set to launch tangible policies
that will Get Nigeria Working Again in the next week. Our
campaign is focused on addressing the concerns and the
welfare of Nigerians by Atikulating plans to move Nigerians
out of poverty.
It is obvious that the APC is badly in need of such tutoring.
We also sympathize with Chairman Oshiomhole on his
ordeal and assure him that if he is finding the APC too hot
for him, he may want to throw in the towel and join the large
number of APC chieftains who have washed their hands off
the party and its hydra-headed problems.
