Kano PDP denies avoiding Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan at a Presidential rally

The Peoples Democratic Party [PDP] in Kano has denied reports that its members are not identifying with President Goodluck Jonathan and are not displaying his posters in the city for fear of being attacked.

The party said it is more concerned about conducting issue-based campaigns than displaying the president’s posters.
A faction of the party had accused the Kano PDP hierarchy of not doing enough to showcase Mr. Jonathan ahead of election in February in a state controlled by the opposition All Progressives Congress, APC.

But the PDP chairman in the state, Rabiu Dansharu, and his secretary, Auwalu Danzabuwa, dismissed the allegations as “baseless and unfounded”.

At a media briefing Monday, Mr. Dansharu said the party’s campaigns are not based on posters and bill-board, but sending out the desired messages of true happenings in the party which the president represents.

Mr. Danzabuwa told the party’s supporters to wait after the president visits Kano on Wednesday for campaigns, before complaining about posters and bill boards. He said the party will commence massive display of the president’s posters after the visit.

He said the handlers of the president are men of tremendous integrity and true knowledge about democratic principles not just “street political vendors who hawks for what to eat in the name of democracy”.

“That is why we are doing what we are doing carefully with a lot of caution and peace,” he said.

“On Wednesday, Kano will see us the PDP, because historically Kano is the hot bed of our party and we are aware of the continuing love and understanding we receive from the people of the State as being shown during our governorship flagging up campaign, and they would not regret it,” he assured.

      I no know o. PDP is a nightmare for even the most astute strategic planner and marketing expert. On Buhari ceritificate inanities that the pigs are holding on to as the last joker, I want to submit as below. Not that it matters though, formal education to the bulk of Nigerian voters is a jejune matter. But yet.

      I was watching Rivers state APC Guber campaign live of Channel TV mesmerised by the slogan MR PRESIDENT MY PRESIDENT BUHARI BUHARI MY GOVERNOR MY GOVERNOR DAKUKU DAKUKU. I just saw this headline and felt duty bound to shut this morons up onece and for all. Being a highly formally educated person myself with a doctorate in engineering, and masters in law, public and project management and Business adminstration, and now a dutiful student of native intelligence, I think I am very qualify to make this submission.

      Get the fact right, these cabals will never go down tamely not with the Mossad involvement. PDP is gone for good no doubt. I want to refer the readers to the story of probably the MOST POPULAR LEADER of his time described by President Obama as the MOST POPULAR PRESIDENT, popular and competent.

      The man is LUIZ Inácio Lula da SILVA. A SHOE SHINER that become president of Brazil. I was chanced to be on this man team that visited South Africa. He opined then that a President that will not perform better has no business seeking second term, refering to Jacob Zuma of South Africa bid then.

      It will be quiet interesting to read about Lula, a man that change the fortune of Brazil for good. Lula first ran for governor of the state of São Paulo in 1982 and LOST. He contested TWICE and FAILED for the presidency until 2002, when he decisively defeated José Serra for the presidency.

      Lula had essentially LITTLE formal education. He quit school in PRIMARY 2!!!! Even then, only a buffon will compare the competencies and charisma of leaders like Tafawa Balewa, Aminu Kano with Jonadaft a PhD. Buhari HAS FAR ABOVE A SCHOOL CERTIFICATE EDUCATION. Some on legality point, he is eminently qualified having met the requirement.

        Bruv, I tire for the antics of the Jonothings.

        They are as pesky and irritating as a swarm of bluebottle flies.

        But, I can sense their desperations.

        This is the kitchen sink; the last gasp before they expire!

    Among my biggest surprise in this election is
    that Jonathan and Buhari are the only people being considered for election.
    In my view both candidates are deeply flawed.
    I can’t understand how someone who started out by refusing to declare his assets and mocking nigerians along the way can even be re-elected.
    He went on to free known and convicted embezzlers, attempted to rehabilitate Abache ,accepted by the international community as one of the most notorious embezzlers of modern time.
    His performance against BH will perhaps go down in history books as the most inept performance of a commander in chief.
    Now he is quite comfortable with Fani kayode
    who still has a case of money laundering to answer as his point man in his campaigne. And on and on and on. The chibock girls have now gone into oblivion.
    Not that I even support fully Buhari candidacy but
    the 2 political parties offering only these men
    is appauling. In this case I will go with Buhari
