APC Asks Jonathan To Stop Running Commentaries At Campaign

Goodluck-Jonathan2

The All Progressives Congress (APC)Presidential Campaign team has expressed disappointment at the inability of President Goodluck Jonathan, the presidential candidate of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), to seize the opportunity of his campaign to tell Nigerians what he has done for them in the last six years.

The APC Presidential Campaign observed that at the PDP Lagos campaign flag-off and at Enugu, rather than the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria telling the people of Nigeria watching on television and those at the campaign venue what he has achieved and what he intends to do differently, the second-term seeking President Jonathan spent valuable time reading copiously excerpts from the maiden speech of General Ibrahim Babangida who overthrew Buhari in 1985.

“Nigerians do not expect a political commentary from President Jonathan of a nearly 30 year old speech delivered to the nation by IBB,” a statement by the APC Campaign in Abuja, signed by Mallam Garba Shehu, Director, Media and Publicity, yesterday said.

The group noted that President Jonathan had earlier urged that parties and candidates to engage in issues-based campaign, but was surprised that in his campaign outings so far, including those of Enugu and Lagos, the President has been unable to do this.
