Propaganda Won’t Save Buhari From Losing, Says Group
A GROUP mobilising support for President Goodluck Jonathan’s re-election, the Goodluck Lagos Grassroots Project, has said that propaganda will not save the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, from losing the next election.
The group said the APC could not point out its contribution to Nigeria’s democratic experience except its well-packaged propaganda to mislead the citizens.
In a statement by its Chairman, Alhaji Mufutau Babalola, the GLGP said that APC had lost focus as an opposition party.
Babalola said: “The purpose of an opposition party in any democracy is to put the ruling party on its toes through constructive criticism, but the APC fails to understand this aspect of democratic government.
“APC failed when graded in all indices of democracy. It has failed to offer useful advice on governance. It also failed to recognise success recorded by President Goodluck Jonathan’s transformation agenda in all the sectors of the economy. The only area the opposition has succeeded is using deceit and propaganda to win people’s sympathy.”
Babalola said the cabals surrounding the APC Presidential candidate would not allow him win next month’s general elections in the country.
According him, the GLGP has aligned with President Goodluck Jonathan’s position that despite the intimidation being mounted against members of the ruling party by opposition parties, no political party can beat the PDP in the coming election.
The group, however, asked Buhari to accept the challenge to engage Jonathan in public debate if he understands the dynamic of Nigeria’s economy.
GLGP said, “It is certain that the APC is afraid of losing the next presidential election, hence the use of undemocratic means to achieve victory.
“Nigerians are not dummies; they can discern that APC is unstable as weather. The party has the character of chameleon that keeps changing colour. It has changed name four times in the last 16 years with the same set of leaders.”
