The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Saturday alleged that leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have continued to betray their hidden aversion towards the candidacy of General Muhammadu Buhari and have indeed abandoned his campaigns for the February 14 presidential election.
PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, said in a statement on Saturday that most leaders of the APC do not believe in the personality of Buhari, resulting in flip-flops and double standards that have been the fate of his presidential campaign.
The PDP said that while key APC leaders such as former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, Kano State Governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso, and presidential aspirant, Sam Nda-Isaiah have since abandoned Buhari and his rickety campaign to an uncertain fate, Lagos State Governor Babatunde Fashola has not been able to hide his preference for a younger, more educated and more articulate President who is able to connect with the current generation of citizens as embodied in President Goodluck Jonathan.
“Recently, in his failed attempt to discredit the PDP Lagos state governorship candidate, Jimi Agbaje, Governor Fashola betrayed himself by stating that Agbaje, who is only 57 years was too old to govern Lagos state. This is indeed the height of hypocrisy considering the fact that the same Governor Fashola is on the other hand campaigning for a 73 years old Buhari to become the President of Nigeria.”
