The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Organisation (PCO) on Wednesday said that it’s major assignment is to reveal the true identity of the APC Presidential Candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari, as a corrupt Nigerian who masquerades himself as honest man without any blemish.
The PDP campaign outfit also asked Buhari to explain his roles in the defunct Petroleum Task Force (PTF) that he headed in the administration of General Sani Abacha and General Abdulsalami Abubakar.
Addressing its maiden press conference, the Director of Media and Publicity of the campaigns, Femi Fani kayode said, “It is our full intention to expose General Muhammadu 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.”
He said that the directorate of Media and Publicity shall not indulge in the type of cheap propaganda, mud-slinging and deceit that the APC and their Presidential candidate have been indulging in over the last few weeks and months in the course of revealing the true identity of Buhari to Nigerians.
However, he said that in the course of its duties that they shall equally let the world know about the sterling performance of “our candidate, President Goodluck 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.”
According to the former Aviation Minister who described Buhari as representing evil, said, “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.”
