Jonathan campaign buses torched by PDP supporters – Buhari

The presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress, Muhammadu Buhari, has told the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to count him and his party out of the issues that led to the burning of a campaign bus of President Goodluck Jonathan in Jos, Plateau State, on Saturday.

The presidency and PDP had accused APC of culpability in the incident, with the presidency telling Mr. Buhari to caution his supporters.

But Mr. Buhari, speaking through his campaign organization, said the incident was caused by controversy over a “rigged” PDP election in Plateau state.

“PDP should leave us out of their wahala (trouble),” a statement by the Director of Media and Publicity of the Buhari Presidential Campaign Organisation, Garba Shehu, read.

“The incident in Jos was passed as a ‘PDP on PDP violence’ yesterday evening, flowing from their rigged primaries.

“That is the earliest security report we got. Nobody should change that and use it to demonize opponents.”

Mr. Shehu said Mr. Buhari was the first to condemn the incident the moment it was reported on Saturday.

He quoted Mr. Buhari as saying: “I have been informed of the burning of PDP campaign buses in Jos today. This is unacceptable! There is no excuse for this violence.

“I am hoping that the Police will immediately investigate, arrest and prosecute the culprits. Our democracy cannot tolerate violence in any form.”

    Actually PDP supporters did the dirty job. The governor imposed his cousin as candidate for governorship election against the wish of the members of PDP in the state. This is the main reason why they masses are protesting.

      How do you know? Were you there? I did not believe you can read some verses from Sura and decipher the reason why people are protesting in far away places.

      I hate taqiyya.

          You see. We are here talking about APC related violence, but your mind is fixed in virgins/houris. I did not see your question. Now I know you are indirectly begging me to give you more information about those beautiful virgins awaiting good Muslims in paradise.

          You know I have read the Holy Qu-ran and I can help you find information therein. I will not disappoint you, abokina. Now, feast your eyes, my good friend. They say seeing is believing.

          Every man who enters paradise shall be given 72 houris

    Regardless of what the evidence may say. PDPigs and the Dumbolites will continue to blame APC for their own self inflicted injuries.

    Yes we the aggrieved PDP members burnt the buses because these Beroms have tasted power and good food for the first time and will not allow the principle of rotation of the governorship position to continue just like the clown from Otuoke has vowed not to vacate Aso Rock

    The violence of the Muslims in the North of this country has already “caught up” with them. Niger does not have this violence. The Amalgamation was a mistake. The “muslim” North should have been left on its own.
