With only 5 weeks to the next general elections, campaign strategies are getting dirtier between the two leading parties in Nigeria as the ruling Peoples Democratic Party –PDP, describes former Head of State, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari as an agent of the devil ‘’darkness.’’
PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation –PCO, said on Wednesday that the All Progressives Congress –APCP Presidential candidate in next month’s election represents a return to an ugly past and that it is the organization’s intention to expose the former military leader.
Director of Media and Publicity of the campaigns, Femi Fani kayode described Gen. Buhari as a corrupt Nigerian who pretends to be honest without any blemish.
He 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.
Fani Kayode said the intention of the organization was to reveal to Nigerians, the true colour of the APC Presidential candidate, alleging that Buhari was involved in corrupt practices while serving the country in the past.
“It is our full intention to expose Gen. 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,’’ said the former minister for Aviation.
He alleged that Buhari owes Nigerians explanations on his roles in the defunct Petroleum Task Force (PTF) that he headed in the administration of late military rulers, Gen. Sani Abacha and Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar.
