SMEAR CAMPAIGN??? Buhari And GEJ’s Camp Trade Words

Share This

The intense battle for Nigeria’s presidency has begun.The Buhari 2015 Support Group Centre (the campaign outfit of the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Maj.Gen. Muhammadu Buhari), in a statement released on Sunday by its Director of Publicity, Dr. Chidia Maduekwe has advised the Jonathan administration to channel their N21.27 billion donated money into the nation’s electricity sector.

The group said it was disgraceful for the President and his party to still be talking about improving the nation’s power sector after spending over $ 20bn on it.
It said: “The power sector featured proudly two days ago in contributing towards Mr. President Jonathan’s re-election campaign fund. We would have thought such funds should have been better deployed in giving Nigerians better power supply. “When four years ago Dr. Goodluck Jonathan said he would not run in 2015, he had then promised that ‘if voted into power within the next four years, the issue of power will become a thing of the past. Four years is enough for anyone in power to make significant improvement and if I can’t improve on power within this period it then means I cannot do anything even if I am there for another four years.”
Nigerians are worse off in terms of electricity supply than they were 15 years ago. No nation has ever moved from developing to being developed by relying on generators to power its economy.
“The PDP-led government will only lead Nigeria into a demographic disaster with its current failed energy policy. The ordinary Nigerian on the street knows that he or she is not better off today with electricity supply as against four years ago when Jonathan mounted the saddle.”
Responding however, the Presidency through the Special Assistant to the President on Public Affairs, Dr. Doyin Okupe, said the group lacked integrity to condemn the donation. Okupe, who spoke with PUNCH on the telephone said:

“We knew before and everyday that the so-called Buhari group is not a serious organization. It is made up of power-mongers with no clear objective programmes for the country. They have perfected the act of deception and glorified falsehood. That’s why they will say Buhari doesn’t have N1m in his account and he wants to go into a national campaign. He wants to get the money for campaign from corrupt politicians and people of questionable character.”

Okupe added that what happened at the Presidential Villa on Saturday was normal and done everywhere in the world.

What we did is done everywhere in the world. What we did was in the open and it was in a transparent manner. We know for a fact that Buhari’s funds will come from dubious sources, including corrupt governors.
