PDP mocks Tinubu, Shettima for distancing themselves from Buhari’s failure

The Peoples Democratic Party claimed on Thursday that Bola Tinubu, the APC presidential candidate, and Kashim Shettima, his running partner, were using Goodluck Jonathan’s image to deceive Nigerians in the run-up to the 2023 elections.

The main opposition party argued that critical APC figures like Tinubu, Shettima, and others have been taking steps to disassociate themselves from the purported failure of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.

The PDP said that the recent meeting between the trio was an attempt by the APC presidential and vice presidential candidates to clean up their image in a statement released by Debo Ologunagba, the party’s national publicity secretary.

On Tuesday, Tinubu and Shettima continued their consultations ahead of the 2023 elections by meeting with Jonathan in Abuja.

A source in Tinubu’s camp informed newsmen that the visit was an extension of the APC national leader’s consultation with key political stakeholders ahead of the 2023 presidential election, however specifics of their meeting were not made public.

“No one should be shocked by his visit to Jonathan. According to him, Tinubu has no animosity toward any political group, whether they are allies or foes.
However, the main opposition party castigated Tinubu and Shettima in a statement on Thursday, claiming the pair were among those who thwarted Jonathan’s administration’s efforts, particularly on the problem of insecurity and the kidnapping of the Chibok girls.

Nigerians are outraged by Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress’ presidential candidate, and other APC leaders’ shameful and hypocritical attempt to distance themselves from President Muhammadu Buhari in light of the administration’s abject failure, in which they are major players.

The APC presidential candidate, his running mate, Sen. Kashim Shettima, and other APC leaders shamelessly organized a photo opportunity with the illustrious and successful former president Goodluck Jonathan of the Peoples Democratic Party in an effort to repair their damaged public image. They did this by identifying with the PDP’s obvious successes and by trying to project the image of statesmen.

This is a patriotic Nigerian leader whose PDP-led intentional and effective administration the APC leaders aggressively persecuted, continuously ridiculed, labeled, destroyed, and humiliated in order to further their own self-serving power-grab.

Nigerians will never forget how Asiwaju Tinubu cruelly denigrated Dr. Jonathan and his PDP administration, spread hatred toward them, and allegedly provided funding for a nearly riotous protest that was stoked by fabrications of economic data, propaganda, and statistics in an effort to discredit the Jonathan-led PDP government.

Nigerians can also remember how Sen. Shettima thwarted and irritated Jonathan’s administration in its attempts to reduce insecurity in Borno State while serving as governor of that state.

The APC Vice Presidential candidate was the governor of Borno State at the time of the cruel kidnapping of schoolgirls in Chibok, Borno State, because he disregarded a security report and a directive to close schools in remote areas of the state and move students to the capital, Maiduguri, which is more secure.

Nigerians will also recall how the previous governor, Shettima, disregarded his responsibilities as chief security officer and allegedly withheld crucial security intelligence in favor of terrorist groups and non-state actors, obstructing the quick recovery of the kidnapped Chibok girls.

It should also be mentioned that the principal of the school was later nominated as a commissioner in Borno State by the then-Gov. Shettima, a move that many saw as recompense for her apparent involvement in the kidnapping.

Therefore, it is ironic that the same APC leaders who have spent the last seven years defaming and harassing Dr. Jonathan have now shamelessly organized a visit and photo opportunity in an effort to clean up their image and mislead Nigerians about the atrocities and monumental evil they brought to our nation.

It is indeed provocative that APC leaders are attempting to deceive Nigerians once more after destroying our once-vibrant economy, elevating corruption to the status of an official state policy, and turning our country into the world’s most impoverished country by empowering terrorist groups to massacre our citizens.

We are aware that these APC leaders have planned a number of deceptive stunts to mislead Nigerians in the run-up to the general elections of 2023, but they must understand that Nigerians have advanced and are no longer susceptible to propaganda, lies, false promises, and photo ops with wealthy people.

Leaders of the APC are now required to really apologize to Dr. Jonathan, the PDP, and Nigerians for the dire predicament they have imposed upon our country over the past seven years. They should then quietly leave the platform and part ways with terrorists, political thugs, and election fraud suspects because they have no place among well-meaning Nigerians.
