The All Progressives Congress (APC) Friday condemned the Peoples Democratic Party over its comments on the presentation of the APC presidential candidate at the Chatham House, London.
The party referred to the PDP statement as needless resort to sheer hysteria over the globally-acclaimed appearance of the APC’s Presidential Candidate, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (rtd), at the Chatham House in London.
According to statement issued in London on Friday by the APC National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party stated that even when it was so apparent that the PDP and the Jonathan Administration were so stunned and stung by Gen. Buhari’s well-accepted presentation, they could have saved themselves from further disgrace by simply keeping quiet, instead of exposing their inanities.
Mohammed in his statement said: ”For the spokesmen of the PDP and the Jonathan Campaign organisations to have rushed to the press to denounce what was a patriotic presentation by a high-regarded Nigerian is not only absurd but a new low, even for those who have lost every sense of propriety in their public actions and pronouncements”.
APC referred as high the level of paranoid of the PDP and the Jonathan Administration to the extent that they hired some poor folks to protest at the Chatham House over an issue they knew nothing about.
The party said it was just as well that the rent-a-crowd show boomeranged on the PDP/Jonathan Administration, when those among the scanty protesters who were interviewed said they did not even know why they have come there, with some of them hiding behind their placards of shame.
”The fact that the Jonathan Administration wasted public funds in hiring people to protest against Gen. Buhari’s appearance is another indication of how the commonwealth has been consistently frittered away under the clueless and incompetent Jonathan Administration,” it said, wondering who appropriated the funds that were wasted on the uninformed and disinterested band of protesters.
