Buhari, APC procured, stage-managed Arewa Pastors' endorsements- PDP

…Describes it as hypocritical, disgusting signs of desperation
By Samuel Ogidan
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday said that the recent endorsements by individuals who masqueraded as religious leaders, was procured and stagemanaged by the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Muhammadu Buhari presidency.
Lambasting the APC and Buhari presidency over the procured endorsements, PDP, in a statement by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, described the development as
as hypocritical and disgusting signs of desperation.
The party noted that Buhari Presidency’s hiring of supposed Arewa Pastors was a second attempt to orchestrate fake endorsements ahead of the 2019 election, recalling the recent Martin Luther King Jr. saga
“Both procured endorsements, which had turned out to be fake, are, to say the least, despicable and betray the nervousness of a sinking leadership, desperately trying to save its face, having been rejected by the people.
“It is heartrending that because of the desperation of one man, the integrity of Nigeriaa��s seat of power has again been ridiculed as the world watched religious bodies and groups in the country disowning the procured band.
“The fact that this disgraceful drama came barely a week after our nation suffered an international show of shame over President Buharia��s presentation with a procured award fraudulently linked to Martin Luther King Jr, speaks volumes of this administrationa��s proclivity for falsehood, lies and deception.
“Having failed to gain any endorsements from reputable international figures, such as Bill Gates and the Martin Luther Kings Jr group, the APC and the Presidency have now shamelessly resorted to cheaper ways and means, particularly, along the unregulated and porous religious and sectional lines.
“It is now overtly manifest that the Buhari administration is ready to even stage anything, no matter how ignoble, including fake rescue missions, to deceive Nigerians.” it said.
PDP said that these disgraceful endorsements were being coordinated by three presidential aides, a cabinet minister from the Southsouth and certain officials of the APC, a project for which billions of naira have been earmarked.
“This cabal is also responsible for the renting of crowds, who are usually conveyed in buses, trucks and trailers, to fill the space during President Buharia��s visits to various states of the federation, as witnessed in Benue during the last visit of Mr. President,” the party said.
PDP said that for President Buhari to be begging for endorsements only points to the fact that he and his cabal have lost the support of Nigerians whom his administration has subjected to horrible economic hardships, traumatic bloodletting and a bleak future.
“If President Buhari and his dysfunctional APC had performed to the least expectations of Nigerians, even by implementing the littlest of their numerous fake campaign promises, they would have no need for mundane gimmicks of procuring awards from well known street quacks ahead of the elections,” it said.
The party charged all credible groups in the country to be at alert and resist any attempt by the Presidency and APC to induce them to compromise their integrity, as well as guide against plots to use money to infiltrate and divide their ranks.
“The APC and Buhari Presidency must admit that their time is up as Nigerians are now rallying with the repositioned PDP in the national quest to rescue our dear nation from the incompetent, failed and deceptive administration of the APC, come 2019,” PDP said.
