The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) presidential campaign organisation (PCO) says it knows about the atrocities of Muhammadu Buhari as head of state and will make them public as the campaign issue to Nigerians in the next few weeks.
The Director of Media and Publicity of PCO, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, made this known while addressing a press conference at Legacy House, Maitama, Abuja, the headquarters of the campaign organisation, on Wednesday. He said that the campaign would convince Nigerians that Buhari was not the right person to lead the country.
“We wish to inform you that it is our intention to run a clean campaign based on facts, figures and issues.
“We shall not indulge in the type of cheap propaganda, mud-slinging and deceit that the APC and its presidential candidate have been indulging in over the last few weeks and months, but it is our full intention to expose General Buhari for what he really is, what he stands for and the great danger that his candidacy portends for the unity of the Nigerian state and the peace and well-being of the Nigerian people.
“More importantly, we shall let the world know about the sterling performance of our candidate, President Jonathan, over the last four years and we shall make a strong case and appeal to the Nigerian people to grant him the privilege and opportunity to serve a second term.
“We believe that we have reached a crossroads in our nation’s history and that the forthcoming presidential election is a battle for the very soul and destiny of Nigeria.
“We believe that it is a struggle between light and darkness. We believe that General Buhari represents the darkness and that President Jonathan represents the light.
“We believe that General Buhari represents a return to an ugly past, which is best forgotten, while President Jonathan represents our hope for a greater and better future.
“We believe that the APC, on which platform General Buhari is contesting the presidential election, represents everything that is unholy and unwholesome in our society and that the PDP represents all that is decent and good,” Fani-Kayode said.
