PDP accuses APC of plotting fake poll for Buhari

Olisa Metuh, PDP National Publicity Secretary.

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has counselled the All Progressives Congress, APC, and its presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, to focus on real campaign and try to win followers genuinely instead of applying cheap diversionary tactics.

PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, in a statement on Monday said “the APC’s so-called ‘change agenda’ should be based on issues and not on change of dressing and religious gathering”.

“This election is not about political window-dressing and dramatizing. What will count is record of performance and antecedents, which President Jonathan stands taller than General Buhari,” the party said.

“It is therefore not surprising that the APC and its Presidential candidate will resort to organizing a kangaroo opinion rating in a failed attempt to cover up their inadequacies and manipulate public perception in their favour.”

This APC phantom poll has been designed in such a way to make the Nigerian public believe that 75 per cent of the voting population is in support of General Buhari ahead the February 14 Presidential election.

Our findings reveal that the APC leaders are already intensifying effort to compromise some section of the media so as to ensure that the poll packaged by its foreign consultants is widely publicized.

Part of the strategy is a disguised mobile phone balloting application being circulated by the APC, whereby a curious click elicits a thank-you message from them and automatically register the unsuspecting phone user as having voted in support of General Buhari.

We are indeed shocked at the level the APC and its presidential candidate have sunk in their desperation for power. We hereby urge Nigerians, particularly the media to be wary of this plot to deceive the public and truncate our democratic process.

Our final advice to the APC is that they should focus on real campaign and stop playing to the gallery. Lies, no matter how much embellished can never take the place of truth and nothing built on falsehood stands. This election is not about fake figures and falsehood. It is about the choice of the citizens. Nigerians have since made up their minds to continue identifying with their performing President and no amount of propaganda and misrepresentation by the APC can change this.

    Methu, please shut up if you have nothing decent to say, you have never anyways and besides this is 2015

  • endingNaija

    Shut up Metuh! Which rational Nigerian will vote for the outgoing president Goodluck Jonathan in February? Even you Olisa Metuh will not vote for Goodluck Jonathan!

  • Dankasa

    This guy is sick, Johnathan lost a sister instead to sympathize with him and the family this chap chooses the time to talk like a lunatic. I could remember he did the same when people in Abuja were mourning the lost of loved ones in Nyanya bomb blast but the psycho was talking about rubbish politics. Are you concealing defeat? Menu, wait and see guinure crowd when GMB flagoff campaign then you will really believe that you can’t RIG this time!

  • djay

    What or who is stopping Pdp from doing their own poll and besides why is Pdp seeing anybody working against the interest of pdp as Apc?

    • Mosaku 147

      Olisa mouthu. Your end is nearer than you think.anyway,I know your likes already have homes in India to run to.but remember your extended family ooo, so the sins of the father will not be vented on the sons.

  • Moze

    Metu, you are one of the reason why people are running away from Jonathan. You are not brilliant at all. Stop dreaming please.

  • Kola Adekola

    Part of the strategy is a disguised mobile phone balloting application being circulated by the APC, whereby a curious click elicits a thank-you message from them and automatically register the unsuspecting phone user as having voted in support of General Buhari.

    APC is known for fraud, that is why they a led by a “general” who has no certificate.

    • Dr. Kay

      Who is committing fraud here ? For starters your name is not kola Adekola, APC is not janjaweed but PDP (Sherriff, Ihejerika ),duh and thirdly your certificate showing crusade is laughable, because I didn’t know you are now a certified INEC certificate verifier , you’ve taken the job of locating ,finding and outing GMB’s poor certificate as a personal crusade. Why are you so worried about that ? Are you so scared of GMB that your belief that there is no certificate to show is making you and others go all out requesting for it. If you don’t get it from him or the army ,I’m sure your next crusade iwill be to disqualify him. Me I dey laff oh , your oga Dumbo dey piss for him pants , so you foot soldiers have to help him out to disqualify his nemesis abi no be so. Well as you’ve been seeing in all our posts Dumbo is now ,Ex president Dumbo. So request ,shout, cajole, harass ,beg , blackmail, or try all the tricks in the book, GMB will not release the certificate to a nonentity like you , you get my point? Remember your Dumbos famous saying ? We are repeating it here , we don’t give a damn wether he release his certificate or not , are you angry ? Well I don’t give a damn, get my drift? Lol

      • Wähala

        No, not all…
        Dumbo and this same miscreants claimed he did not need to declare his assets on the pages of newspapers. Obviously, they’ve forgotten that. Even the forensic report of the NNPC is being hoarded by this same creek crook yet, his morons and goons come here everyday to distract us form serious discussions. Jega of INEC has said, “only the court can disqualify” Buhari, Army Spokesman has said, “only Buhari can apply for his certificates”…just like the Unv. of Pitakwa has said only Dumbo can publish his PhD Thesis for all eyes to read… Fact is the bottom line of what you said, “we don’t give a damn”. Hahaha chai… Lol for Kalabari !!!

      • Otile

        We are not asking too much, we are saying to Imam, Sir show your first school leaving certificate. That’s not much. This is the lowest standard expected of a person aspiring to be elected by millions of educated
        people. Are you saying that certificates do not matter again?

        Many of our uncles narrated to us how they were rejected in the Nigerian military in the early sixties for reasons of lack of certificates, height, place of origin. Yet the Northern boys were not required to
        produce those qualifications.

        Jerry Boy Useni complained that he was more qualified than Abacha, yet the corrupt system passed him over and chose Abacha. Brig Ogundipe was more qualified than then LtCol Jack Gowon, yet the corrupt system chased the Brigadier to Ingila and instantly promoted Col Gowon to General.

        Must we continue to waive every decent qualification for your Hausa Fulani masters in the name of one united Najeriya? If an illiterate man east of the Niger presents himself as a presidential candidate wouldn’t arrest him? During the last election another illiterate Fulani man ran as the vice president, but mungo de Allah Dr Jonathan defeated the duo Imam, and the other illiterate man. Must we continue to operate on two different systems – one easy system for Fulani Yoruba and one rigorous system for people east of the Niger? Is this fair to you?

        Can you refute any of these facts, Dr Kay?

        • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

  • Truthometer

    PDP in a panic mode. Metuh should continue to create more problems for Dumbo. Change is coming to Nigeria!

  • True Nigerian

    Olisa Metuh, in a statement on Monday said “the APC’s so-called ‘change
    agenda’ should be based on issues and not on change of dressing and
    religious gathering”.

    Hahahahaha! Yet, you the preacher of issue-based campaign decided to call Buhari – a General in the army – an illiterate, when every Nigerian knows that he is not an illiterate.

    The campaign is not about religious gatherings. Yet, every statement made by the incumbent President Jonathan on this election are usually made in church gatherings; the last time I checked, Jonathan cannot speak to Nigerians unless he visits a church; he cannot discuss boko haram unless he goes into a church programme and takes the pulpit at which point he would start his usual propganda that Boko haram was formed to bring down his government.

    Metuh, don’t fuul yourself. Change is coming, and is almost here already! Most Nigerians don’t believe any word of the PDP anymore.

    But keep speaking, Mr Metuh. You will hear, see and feel the answer of Nigerians in February. We are ready! Just bring it on!
    Your party will not just lose, you guys will be embarrassed out of power!

  • UNAFFECTED

    I am interested in the dressing part. Anyone recalls how GEJ was changing clothes at every campaign in 2011? Now Buhari is using their own game against them, they are now crying like little children. Premium Times should spare us crap like this in the interest of journalistic integrity. De Metuh go and die.

  • Alcindo Satori

    We get it Mr. Metuh! All of the weirdness from APC/Tinubu/buhari would be funny except that a handful of gullible Nigerians — particularly those from a certain section of the country — get their daily news information/digest from sahara reporters et al that cynically uses the buzz phrase “report yourself” as its motto. The perverseness of sahara reporters et al is that the more shameless a thug an editior is, the popular s/he becomes, or so they think. This is the fault of their handful of confused and crazed readers who believe that the rest of the country would buy into their crap. Nice try by them though, but we know better! Never again, shall we succumb to a junta!! Go GEJ!!!

    • Enemona

      Yes! Go GEJ!!! GEJ must go!!!

    • King Carlos

      Yes..he’s going to otuoke.

  • True Nigerian

    By the way, Mr Metuh, your party can respond by contracting a reputable independent international pollster to conduct your own poll and make the results public. Contact Ipsos Mori, Gallup Polls or the German Spiegel or other internationally renowned pollster that will not bend to your fraudulent demands. Better get one of them now and ask them to give us a poll that is ordered by your PDP. That’s the best way to prove APC wrong!

    Olisa, Can you do it? Of course you can. But will you do it? Never! You will never consider that option because you are hunted by the unpleasant fact that Buhari trounced Jonathan in the last poll that was attempted by fraudulent Reno Omokri. Hahahahaha! I guess it scared the hell out of your latrine strategy. And the poll conducted by Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has also been proved to be utter hogwash and a pile of falsehood, as the trusted US pollster clearly denied ever having a role in the Poll results by Ngozi. Hahahahaha!

    The same Ngozi of the NOI Polls is now officially a director of PDP’s campaign. How on earth is anyone going to believe the result of her polls again? But it won’t be long before she comes up with another poll. That’s how thoughtless PDP is.

    Considering your credibility crisis, no intelligent mind or patriotic citizen of this country will waste even a second on listening to what the PDP has to say.

    Just get ready; because we, the people of Nigeria, are getting ready for you! You will see it in February!
    You better buy some Valentine gift for your wife and give it to her on 30th of January; because it will not be a happy Valentine’s day for you on 14th. It will be a horrific Valentines day for you – your political and financial waterloo!

    Dumbo conduct your own polls lets see the result. where is Omonkery i thought he once conducted a poll

  • Abufata Gumi

    Right on point Olisa Metuh. thank you for exposing them. Nigerians must understand that the APC has a very sinister agenda. I have seen the GSM phone application. there will be a pop us that asks you to click to open something or whatever. they will not tell you you are participating in an opinion poll. when you click they will say, thank you for deciding to vote for Buhari in the election. Is that not fraud. Pleease this Buhari is not what many people think he is. Buhari is an artful dodger. He is a fraud. he went to the military without certificate, and even became a military head of state still living a lie. Metuh please do not get tired of the good work you are doing.

    • D1

      How does this application affect you? Does it affect your ability to vote for your choice or your mental capacity? This is seriously pathetic, coming from someone that is the Publicity secretary of a party during election campaigning period. This is no issue at all, it shouldn’t be what he should be bothered about.
      This overall shows lack of ideology, same as the certificate issue. What then happens when Buhari shows his certificate? What next? That he has shoes growing up or too tall to be a president? Truly pathetic, I have no other word. Yeye people.

  • Dangara

    Dickson is even better. Compare him with the Kebbi State Govrnor who dreamt that some people were about to kill him. After two days, he sighted one of the labourers in the government house and instructed the police to arrest him on the ground that he was one of the persons he saw in the dream. As at now, the poor boy has spent more than two weeks in Birnin Kebbi prison after police transferred him from its custody. Premium Times should please this injustice as the boy is still in detention.

    • Otile

      If you know all these details you may also have good information about what is happening inside Sambisa Forest.

    • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

      Birnin Kebbi is @disqus_9OFHQplYDx:disqus ancestral home town,are you sure the boy is not his younger brother ?

  • Wähala

    How about Dr. Ngz. Iweala’s company poll that claimed 66% of Nigerians approve of the work Dr. Dumbo is doing? Is NOI-Poll not akin to a student grading herself? Olisa Metuh has run out of ideas to lie about, he’s like a mountain climber grabbing at icicles. Nigerians have eyes, ears and astute minds, my only empirical test for the candidate with the better message that resonates with Nigerians will be in observing the crowds that turn out to grace the campaign rallies, and their interpretations of the messages relayed to them. Nobody needs any poll figures to know that Dumbo is the He-Goat in pepper soup… Ende!

  • King Carlos

    So Metuh can talk of issue based campaign? That CHANGE has started having effects.

  • .Kokori

    Pls stop the distractions….Where is the certiPicate?

  • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

    BUHARI CANNOT WISH HIS CERTIFICATES AWAY !! NIGERIANS DEMAND THE CERTIFICATES NOW !!!

    • Otile

      Of course he must show them or bury his face in shame. We don’t need an old illiterate con man as our elected president. The gun has worked for him in the past, but this is a new era. His minions are just deceiving him, they know he cannot handle the intellectual demands of the job. They hope he will be delegating the main duties to them so that they can rub Nigeria silly again.

      • Realnigerian

        rub = rob.

        Who is the illiterate?

        • saj

          God bless you my brother for your logistic answer.

    • True Nigerian

      Hahahaha! Do you guys ever pause to consider whether your strategies are working? Jonathan and his minions like you have spent the best part of the last 2 weeks belabouring yourselves with the redundant question of whether an Army General that attended university level military courses at home and abroad actually has an equivalent of a Primary school certificate. You just sheepishly and thoughtlessly glue your minds and your precious time (that is, assuming you consider time to be a precious resource) to a propaganda that adds absolutely no value to the chances of your candidate in the next election. Do you know how much you could achieve for Jonathan if you spend that time on highlighting the few positive things he has done with his office, such as sharing money at the Nigerian Law School and telling Obama that America should come and fix Nigeria if he wants to fix Africa? Hahahaha!

      I mean, these are some of the positive things you should be highlighting to the attention of any neutrals that are still out there. And who knows, maybe – just maybe – some neutral voters out there might look at such entertaining achievements as a reason to vote for pastor Jona. But instead, you have spent two weeks in burning your energy on a certificate propaganda that most of your audience would consider a worthless conversation. And yet, you wonder why Jonathan the president is not faring so well as Jonathan the candidate.

      In the end, you prove that pragmatism and logical thinking is not a skill known by Jonathan and his paid online minions. That bottomless unthinkingness is exactly why Jonathan’s re-election bid is in shambles.

      • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

        WELL THIS CERTIFICATE-GATE POSES A QUESTION WHICH MUST BE ANSWERED !!

        WHERE ARE BUHARI’S CERTIFICATES ???????

        • True Nigerian

          Again, haven’t you just validated the last paragraph in my above response to you? I didn’t expect you to validate such demeaning potrayal of your intellectual character and reasoning capacity. But then I haven’t forgotten that you are the same fellow who once told me here that Jonathan rigged in 2011 because he had already won. Hahahahahahaha!

          I mean, this certificate thing is a question which, when you eventually get the answer for it, will be meaningless and therefore have no positive impact on Jonathan’s re-election; because the answer you will get is already quite predictable. So why waste your time on that? Or is it that time isn’t worth anything to you? Or that strategy doesn’t mean anything to you? I don’t understand!

          Happy New Year. I will look forward to talking to you again on 14/15 February.

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

Mumu people thinking they are on to something ,no wonder Nigeria is in such a state, due to this crass incompetence and beer palour cum dreamt up policy and trial and error actions.

  • Edward Osadebay

    So the PDP does not have anything to tell Nigerians concerning their manifesto. Why is it that anytime they open their mouth is all about APC. What are they selling to Nigerians. If they are selling only APC, I am ready to buy.

  • excel

    Metuh you realise that the certificate propaganda that pdpig are using doesn’t have any negative effect on APC/GMB. What is jonadaft performance record? What is jonadaft antecedents? Metuh,gej/pdpig are a failure. APC stand for CHANGE, in security CHANGE, in our economy CHANGE, social life CHANGE, international reputation CHANGE, Education CHANGE, Infrastructures CHANGE, In Nigeria PROGESSIVE CHANGE.

    Paralel government will only be formed if the wishes of the electorates are not respected. No one is plotting fake poll but the INEC, in conjunction with Jonathan should release PVCs to the people.

  • Damilola

    We will keep fooling ourselves with this past govt narrative. In as much as we can’t but allude to the past failures to hold our economy firm beyond oil, it is instructive for us to know that we have no business near where we are today. Two things have been the immediate causes of this quagmire: this govt inability to channel right policies, when policies are eventually made, they come belated when things have gone beyond hand. You rem the months fuel scarcity, forex crisis, Niger Delta crisis, Biafra uproar, and d likes? Those were issues that could av been solved in earnest. What was the mallam’s response? Now in a failing economy we hear of pilgrimage subsidy, importation of grass, when rice importation is on embargo, search for oil in land Chad after so many previous attempt to no result…. one should take a look at the 2016 bugdet and see the further frivolity of this administration, just to mention a few. Yet, all the educated illiterates could allude to is past administrations. Past administrations had their faults, which Buhari is really trying hard to surpass by his docility
