Jonathan, PDP plan to cripple Buhari — APC Campaign

Muhammadu Buhari

The All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council (APCPCO) has condemned as bestial and undemocratic the dastardly plot by the Jonathan-led ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to clip the electoral success wings of the opposition APC through a proposed grounding of aircrafts and freezing of bank accounts belonging to stalwarts of the party.

The spokesperson to the Buhari campaign, Garba Shehu, said, “The plot to destabilise the APC and cripple its flag-bearer, Muhammadu Buhari, according to a statement by the APC Presidential Campaign Organisation may be linked to the unsettling global attention on the Party after the opposition candidate’s triumphant performance at the United kingdom’s think tank, Chatham House on February 26, despite futile public protestation by a PDP rented crowd in London.”

He continued, “In as much as we understand politics to be a game of wits and guts, yet the desperate way and manner the PDP and its henchmen are going is anathema, criminal and inimical to our nascent democracy and civilised human behaviour. Hence, any attempt by anyone to cripple the APC and its presidential candidate will be foiled by the citizens who have taken over the movement of change as symbolised by General Muhammadu Buhari. The hint we gather from sources is that the government, through its agents, is plotting to ground aircrafts and freeze bank accounts of APC stakeholders. But history has shown that the forces of evil can never succeed against the zeal of men and women of virtue and good deeds.

“Information at our disposal has uncovered the ruinous plan by the Jonathan administration to use the Aviation Ministry and secret arm of the Security Service to hound and clampdown members of the APC, by prospecting obnoxious means that would ground private jets belonging to senior members of our party, in order to halt and slow down Buhari’s world-acclaimed phenomenal popularity as President-in-waiting.

“There is also a plot to block or freeze the bank accounts of APC chieftains like Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Governor Rotimi Amaechi (Director General of APC Presidential Campaign Organisation), and other prominent leaders believed to be funding the General’s campaign; and availing him their aircrafts for electioneering purposes,” Mr. Shehu said.

Mr. Shehu recalls “that private jets conveying APC Governors, Amaechi of Rivers State and Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State, were either prevented from taking-off or landing during crucial political occasions, particularly during the infamous Ekiti State gubernatorial elections that saw PDP’s Ayodele Fayose ‘defeating’ Dr Kayode Fayemi, in a most controversial “military-assisted” contest now known as ‘Ekiti-gate Tape’”.

    Every action of Jonathan is making Buhari more popular !

  • segun

    jonathan should give up

  • That will mean Jonathan has lost the election.

  • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

    Just shows that Buhari cannot fight corruption because he is surrounded by corruption. For, which business is Tinubu doing that enables him to own and maintain a private jet? This is apart from ownership of the following:
    Alpha Beta Consultants (N5b/month from LASG)
    Oriental Hotel
    Renaissance Hotel
    The Nation newspapers
    TV/Radio Continental
    Falomo Shopping Centre
    School of Nursing, Ikoyi
    Etiosa LG
    NNPC Building, Ikoyi
    Tejuosho Market
    Ikeja Shoprite Mall
    Apapa Amusement Park
    First Nation Airline (to mention but a few).
    Is Amaechi an entrepreneur, too?
    The earlier EFCC arrests Buhari and his sponsors, the better for Nigeria. Nonsense!!!

    • Mention the ones owned by Jonathan and his gang of cabals so that we can judge.

      • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)



    • The Nationalst

      NNPC Building too ?. I thought it belonged to the Federal government. Abi GEJ has sold it to Tinubu ?

      • truth is bitter

        Abi o. The guy just posted maggot from his brain

        • Gran puba

          Fools NNPC Bldg in Ikoyi is leased. And all fingers point to Tinubu the Ikoyi landlord.

    • larry

    • VOTEoutGEJ!

      Did Tinubu acquired all these purported assets under Buhari’s administration or under the PDP led Federal Government in the last 16yrs?

    • progress


    • Mosaku 147

      Tinubu the ‘orphan’ had an iya-oloja as mother and Wale Tinubu (Oando) as a cousin or is it nephew.Who is Jonathan’s father and mother plus your own put together?

  • sammyctu ode

    The more jonathan and pdp plots, the more they fail and in turn draw more people to GMB. PDP IS A CRIMINAL PARTY WHICH IS WHY NIGERIA IS NOT MOVING FORWARD.

  • Kola Adekola


  • King Carlos

    PDP is not used to campaign and winning election credibly. Like them or not, APC has raised the bar of our electoral system. They are using world class campaign strategies and it’s working for them. On the other hand, PDP has struggled to keep up with the pace of APC and they are jittery over it. That is why they have resorted to what we yorubas call the politics of “bó ba ó pa, bó ba o bú le śe “. Do or die politics.

  • Heck

    PT be professional!

  • paul preston

    cry cry apc GEJ must turn the heat on you guys,why are you complaining the ”masses” does not need the millions/billions to vote they will vote anyhow.BUt on a serious note APC cannot and will not win this election anytime anyday,those who call the shots in SW have all qued behind GEJ and NC/SS/SE will vote GEJ and GEJ will surely split votes in NE/NW so where will Buhari get the numbers to win this election? all this noise will end on March 28th jusdt watch out

    • nsikak

      even when he was more popular in 2011 he couldnt split their vote. 2011 Tinubu then in AC voted for GEJ but this yr it will b a different ball game. NC voted GEJ still going to b different ball game. u r just turning everythg upside down. the vote for GMB in SS n SE will increase cos of pple like Osiomole, Ameachi and okorocha. in 2011 GMB didnt have any Senator, House of rep member n even GOVS. but today plenty of these pple i just mentioned r strongly behind him. do even kw wat u r saying? if wat u r saying is wat is on grd PDP wouldnt have postponed election n for ur information they r still planning to postpone it ma brother.

  • Goodluck_Nigeria


    The man is obviously too sick, too stressed and too old

    • VOTEoutGEJ!

      Bring your father’s face to the fore and lets compare with that of Buhari.

      • Mosaku 147

        Where will he find the father to show. These people are like Okupe,bastards.

    • Omoagunmate

      You and your uncle tom’s syndrome, dem say make you bring ya cassava farming papa face comot make we see am. Now that you’ve being paid peanuts you don forget ya own papa’s suffering ya village. House slave way dey buga.

  • nsikak

    u pple should ask how n where is APC getting all these first hand n accurate information from? the same pple GEJ is planning these with r the same pple giving out this information to APC. I PITY HIM COS HE IS TOO DULL TO SEE THE HAND WRTING ON THE WALL. THE PPLE WORKING FOR HIM R THOSE BETRAYING HIM.

    • progress

      The guy is too dull and too desperate to understand what is happening around him.I am beginning to believe he rumours that he is a drunkard.

      • Mosaku 147

        Rumours ke? He even offered General Gowon a glass of ogogoro not too long ago during a visit to him by the General.

  • NamesAre4Tombstones

    Hahahahahaha. APC on the ropes!

  • Otile

    Imam is lucky, during the IBB era those planes would suffer unexpected pilot errors with bad landing or worse.

  • Pete

    Another APC lie for the week.

  • Okey

    It is simple. The federal government should look into Governor Amaechi’s income – salaries and allowances – to see if it can finance the maintenance of his aircraft, much more financing other peoples ambitions and desires and whether the Rivers people are not being bled to coma by Amaechi. If his expenditures are within his income, they should allow him, his aircraft junkets and expenditures. If not, they should freeze those accounts from which inexplicable funds are drawn and expended. This is in the true spirit of the anti-corruption for which Buhari and APC say they are coming to fight. Unless they are not sincere and committed to their speech but are rather taking the rest of us for fools. Garba Shehu should enjoin his principals to submit to national scrutiny.

  • brightdestiny

    Failure is certainly what awaits Jonathan n his crew no matter what dey do dey must surely fail comes d 28th day of march every body both locally n internationally are tired of his weak action in good governance but quick actions in corrupt administration give anpder person a chance dam it.
