The Buhari Media Organisation (BMO) has described the PDP presidential candidate’s strategy meetings in Dubai as “Dubai Jamboree” lacking in logic, commonsense and commitment to solving the problems of Nigeria.
The Buhari Media Organisation (BMO) says the content of the resolution of the meeting is unpatriotic and meaningless that succeeds only in projecting the PDP leaders as being uneasy with patriotism.
In a statement signed by its Chairman Niyi Akinsiju and Secretary, Cassidy Madueke, BMO says the campaign strategy blueprint is centered mostly on divisive tendencies and rhetoric.
“It proposes using religious & ethnic sentiments, lies and propaganda as its major campaign tool against the performing administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“But of course, this has not come to us as a surprise as the party (PDP) used the same method in the run-up to the 2015 Presidential election. What is surprising however is that despite PDP’s pretences about being a rebranded party that has learned its lessons, it indeed has learned nothing from the past.”
Calling on PDP and its Presidential candidate to desist from its usual campaign strategy of calumny, hatred, division and base sentiments, BMO says this style of campaign will never lead them to victory.
“All that this PDP strategy can achieve is further destabilization of this nation. It emphasizes where we are different as a people, rather than how united we can be; or the things that make us more similar as a people. We advise the opposition party to find better strategy of selling its defective product, a strategy that does not threaten the unity of this country.
“We say without equivocation that the Buhari Campaign strategy will not descend that low, nor will it be targeted at smearing personalities. Rather, it will focus on the various achievements of President Muhammadu Buhari’s three and a half years in the office, achievements which are too numerous to mention here; from the
successful fight against insurgency in the North East, restoring to glory a bastardized economy, growing a decayed, dilapidated and abandoned infrastructure and finally to creating, for the first time, a sustainable social welfare program that is truly sustainable and for the people that need it the most – the poorest of the poor and the most vulnerable of our society.
“This track record of performances and many more that the administration of the President has done, and still doing, with little resources, in just three years and a half and not sixteen years of nothing, is what a campaign strategy should be about; certainly not some overpriced cooked-up alien ideas full of sound and fury, hate and bigotry, signifying nothing but divisive sentiments that are unwarranted and surely doomed to fall.”
