Our member getting death threats from Jonathan’s agents — Buhari Campaign

Muhammadu Buhari

The All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Organisation has alerted of threats to the life of one of its members, Rotimi Fashakin, by persons it said are linked to the President Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organisation.

The campaign’s Directorate of Media and Publicity of the APCPCO, in a statement signed its head, Garba Shehu, on Tuesday said the threats on Mr. Fashakin were sent via SMS messages from the same phone line – 08173716604 – on Sunday, March 15 at 6:09pm and 6.17pm.

The organisation said the first SMS at 6:09pm reads: “Mr. ICT expert, your plan on our man Kayode may cost your life. we have been told of all your plans and if dare it, is a risk of your life and that of your family.”

It said Mr. Fashakin, spokesperson of the defunct Congress for Progressives Change, also received a second SMS at 6:17pm which reads, “Don’t say you are not warned, we are following you, we are waiting to see anything funny about our man on the social media. You bastard, watch your back.”

It said that it was not taking the threats seriously considering the extreme show of desperation by the Jonathan regime.

“Indeed, this struggle to wrest Nigeria from the hands of the Jackals has now taken a dangerous bend. With victory in sight for General Muhammadu Buhari and the APC, the reactionary elements are now threatening our lives,” the APCPCO said.

“We dare say, nothing can truncate our destiny without the permission of the Almighty God. We remain unfazed in our charted course of rescuing Nigeria from her perilous governance!

“This is to inform the good people of Nigeria that Jonathan’s goons are now on the prowl. However, we believe that, with the support of the Nigerian people, victory is assured at the elections on 28th March, 2015 and 11th April, 2015.

Mr. Fashakin, who confirmed the threat to his life in an interview with PREMIUM TIMES, said he had not offended anybody that should warrant such a threat.

“It is left for Nigerians to be praying for me,” he said adding that the Jonathan administration had become jittery because the progressives were going to win the election.

In February, Mr. Shehu himself had raised the alarm that his residence was under police siege.

His house in Abuja was reportedly surrounded by armed policemen thus preventing him from attending mosque.

Last week, a national leader of the APC and former governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu, also alleged that the Presidency and the PDP were planning to assassinate him before the election.

Mr. Tinubu had earlier in the year said his private residence along Bourdillon Road was placed on surveillance for three days.

    in a reasonable country, govern by reasonable leader will investigate through the number and prosecute such person to be deterant to others. Now people will give similar threats as excuse to this one. Anybody who give threat to people life should prosecuted by a reasonable system.

      What are you struggling to say? Did your master Ogbeni Wähala not tell you that reasoning is not for everybody? Haba

  • Spoken word

    Bloody PDP cowards.

    • Wähala

      …or, paranoid APC clowns!

  • Wähala

    Gov. Rotimi Amaechi, Alhj. Bola Tinubu, Fr. Mbaka, Ogbeni Fashakin, Mallam Shehu… Haba!
    It’s either the above are paranoid, or the PDP are engaged in psychological warfare. I frankly do not think $Dumbo is that dumb as to authorize a political hit with barely days to go for the general elections… because even my dog would know who to bark at should anything happen to opposition figures. I reiterate, the APC are better served if they make their own security arrangements as Plan-B instead of relying on the partisan NPF.

      Do not underestimate the power of the bottle!


    Take no threat as a joke. That sick man called FFK is capable of any evil!

    Is Buhari not the same idiot_who ordered illiterate Hausa soldiers to arrest and beat up Fela Ransome Kuti in the a name of fighting corruption under the cover of military coup? Is he never going to apologize for the numerous atrocities he committed against non Northerners?

    The UK is predicted to drop to 11th place in the rankings of the world’s largest economies by 2050, as the global economic power shift away from the established advanced economies in North America, Western Europe and Japan continues over the next 35 years. This will happen despite a projected marked slowdown in Chinese growth after 2020, according to the latest in PwC’s series of reports on ‘The World in 2050’.
    The report also finds, however, that the UK is doing well compared to its G7 peer group in terms of growth, which is projected to average around 2.4% per annum over the period to 2050. This is similar to the US and above growth rates in the major Eurozone economies, which are only projected to average around 1.5-2% per annum for the same period.
    John Hawksworth, PwC’s chief economist, said:
    “Emerging economies like Indonesia, Brazil and Mexico have the potential to be larger than the UK and France by 2030. Indonesia could rise as high as 4th place in the world rankings by 2050 if it can sustain growth-friendly policies.
    “But despite expecting the UK to drop out of the top 10 largest economies by 2050, the projected average UK growth rate to 2050 is stronger than other large Western European economies such as Germany, Italy and Spain that face even bigger challenges than the UK from ageing populations and slowing productivity growth.”
    The world economy is projected to grow at an average of around 3% per annum from 2014-50 – doubling in size by 2037 and nearly tripling by 2050. But there is likely to be a slowdown in global growth after 2020, as the rate of expansion in China and some other major emerging economies moderates to a more sustainable long-term rate, and as working age population growth slows in many large economies.

    Oh please why must APC call Jonathan’s name in every thing, if they don’t know the appropriate authority to channel their complain they should ask people and stop distracting the president. How can Jonathan be sending text messages of thread to APC members, it doesn’t make senses and any one saying this, he is not thinking straight. No body in his right senses will think this way. #GEJ4NAIJA

  • Maryam Audu

    GEJ is committed to working for the betterment of Nigeria he can never come down so low to the extend of sending text messages of thread. Please APC we are tired of your lies…#GEJ4NAIJA
