The Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organisation, PDPPCO, has called on Nigerians to ask leaders of the All Progressives Congress, APC, where they got money to acquire private jets.
The Director of Media and Publicity of the Campaign, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, made the call in reaction to an allegation by his counterpart in the APC Presidential Campaign Organisation, Mallam Garba Shehu, that the President Goodluck Jonathan administration was planning to use the Ministry of Aviation to ground private jets belonging to senior members of the APC and frustrate the party’s campaign.
Fani-Kayode said it was interesting that APC had admitted, for the first time, that their leaders owned private jets.
He said, “It is interesting that the APC has, for the very first time, admitted that some of its leaders own private jets. It will be interesting to know from the APC how these leaders, who either occupied public offices or still occupy public offices, acquired these jets.
“In fact, where did the money, with which they procured the jets, come from?
“And this is the APC whose leaders pretend to occupy a moral high ground and accuse everyone else, except themselves, of malfeasance.
“Once again, it is clear that the APC leaders have become prisoners of their own delusions and they are being held captive by their own hallucinations. This is a clear case of extreme paranoia.
“They are running under the bed when nobody is chasing them. There are no plans to clamp down on anybody in the opposition. Our only plan is to humiliate them before the Nigerian people on March 28 by giving them a crushing defeat”.
