The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said it knows those behind the insurgents that have bedeviled the North-eastern part of the country.
The media director for the presidential campaign Organisation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode stated this yesterday at a maiden press briefing on the activities of the newly constituted media campaign committee.
Chief Femi Fani-Kayode explained that even though they know those supporting and having soft spots for the Boko Haram proscribed group, they do not have substantive evidences to prosecute them.
Fani-Kayode who explained further that the All Progressive Congress (APC), party would no doubt lift the ban on Boko Haram sect the moment they are allowed to take over the administration of the country.
He accused the APC presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari for being an apologist for the proscribed group going by his past statements.
He said in his speech that, “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”.
“We believe that the much-vaunted ‘’change’’ campaign of General Buhari represents nothing but a change from good to evil. If you want a positive change, you cannot expect to get it from a man like General Buhari whose democratic credentials are questionable and whose record in public office is shameful and disastrous.”.
“Most people do not remember the atrocities that he committed when he was in power and it is our intention to document them and remind the Nigerian people about them”, he said.
He added that, “Most people have chosen to ignore the number of things that General Buhari has said and the number of things that he has done over the last few months and years that have brought carnage, division and strife in our society and that prove that he is not the sort of person that can be trusted with power. It is our intention to bring those things to the attention of the Nigerian people so that they can make an informed choice”.
“We do not believe that Nigeria ought to be run by a man that is not capable of tolerating dissent or by a political party like the APC that has no sense of remorse, restraint or decency and that is not capable of accepting a plurality of views. We believe that President Goodluck Jonathan has earned the right for a second term and, in the next few weeks; we shall make a humble appeal to the Nigerian people to vote for him massively in the February 14 Presidential election. By the grace and power of God, we shall prevail.”
