Buhari at Chatham House: APC slams “paranoid” PDP, Presidency

Muhammadu Buhari speaking at Chatham House

The All Progressives Congress, APC, has condemned in the strongest possible terms, the needless resort to sheer hysteria by the PDP and the Jonathan Administration over the globally-acclaimed appearance of the APC’s Presidential Candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, at the Chatham House in London on Thursday.

In a statement issued in London on Friday by its National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, the party said it was so apparent that the PDP and the Jonathan Administration were so stunned and stung by Mr. Buhari’s well-accepted presentation.
”For the spokesmen of the PDP and the Jonathan Campaign organizations to have rushed to the press to denounce what was a patriotic presentation by a high-regarded Nigerian is not only absurd but a new low, even for those who have lost every sense of propriety in their public actions and pronouncements,” it said.

APC said the level of paranoia of the PDP and the Jonathan Administration was so high, even before the Mr. Buhari’s presentation, that they hired some poor folks to protest at the Chatham House over an issue the protesters knew nothing about.

The party said it was just as well that the rent-a-crowd show boomeranged on the PDP/Jonathan Administration, when those among the scanty protesters who were interviewed said they did not even know why they had come there, with some of them hiding behind their placards of shame.

“The fact that the Jonathan Administration wasted public funds in hiring people to protest against Gen. Buhari’s appearance is another indication of how the commonwealth has been consistently frittered away under the clueless and incompetent Jonathan Administration,” it said, wondering who appropriated the funds that were wasted on the uninformed and disinterested band of protesters.

APC also described as the worst case of double standard for the loudmouths of the PDP and the Jonathan Administration to question the basis for Mr. Buhari’s appearance at the Chatham House, when the same platform was used a few weeks back by the Administration, which sent National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, there to push for the postponement of the 2015 general elections.

“So it is OK for Dasuki to speak at the Chatham House, one of the most important platforms for any statesman, but forbidden for the APC Presidential Candidate to use the same platform? The needless vituperation of the PDP and the Jonathan megaphones against our candidate is precisely the reason the sinking ruling party and the failed administration it sired have become the butt of jokes around the world.

“Instead of apologizing for seeking to pull the wool over the eyes of Nigerians by saying that Gen. Buhari went to London for medical treatment, these band of poor propagandists persisted in dancing naked in the public square. What a pity?” the party said.

APC hailed Mr. Buhari for his well-crafted, well-delivered and patriotic presentation, and his deft handling of the subsequent question-and-answer session at such a big-league platform as the Chatham House, saying despite the barrage of personal attacks and death wishes by the PDP and its agents, its presidential candidate’s stock has continued to rise both within and outside Nigeria.

It’s the same Chatman House a low level government official- Dasuki who should not go there went to tell the whole world that the elections should be postponed which was eventually postponed and nobody quarreled with that but the foul mouth pdp is now talking thrash about GMB’S APPEARANCE. jonathan and pdp are really evil and we don’t need them in Nigeria’s polity.

            Alhaji told a demographic lie . The vast population of Lagos is not Muslim. In Lagos non indigenes are far more than the indigenous population and they vote. The Ibos in Lagos are estimated to be at least 40 percent of the Lagos population. That is why this block vote is so important in this election for both the presidential and gubernatorial elections.
            Alhaji Tola is being economical with the truth.

They can all start preparing to leave the country like their godfather- Bode George is planning to.

  • Philomena

    Just look at his face like Juju. But is this how Nigeria has degenerated? That he some chose to call a ‘credible’ candidate is a serial loser bereft of any positive public office other than spilling blood in our Lagos bar beach that had become a killing ground for shooting dead any drug suspect/convict. Not to forget his pioneering feat in kidnapping and state sponsored terrorism when he approved some terrorists to invade Umaru Diko’s residence in London, inject him with lethal chlorine in a bid to get him back to Nigeria on allegation of financial mismanagement. Its complete mumuism to even think of the idea that such an ‘entity’ is a presidential candidate in Nigeria in 2015. Sad! Sad indeed!

    This is why we need disintegration like yesterday. To be frank, we had a presidential election in an Oduduwa republic, would any illiterate like Duncee be supported by any Yoruba? But in a Nigeria which is far from being a country, some Yorubas openly identify with failure. It is the tragedy of amalgamation.

        Uzoma John Buhari is not incorruptible as you would like every one to think. I refer you to what el rufia had to say about the general . I also refer you to the the PTF inquirer done by obasanjo shortly after he became President.
        It showed that under Buhari’s PTF over 25 billion Naira went missing . In today’s monetery terms that amount is over 100 billion Naira
        Also can you explain how your incorruptible General was able to afford a house in London with a civil servants salary and was also able to pay for all his children’s education through British Universities
        Tell us where his wife got 140 million Naira to donate to victims of Boko Haram in Adamawa ?

            Sam it was not NDA at the time it was a training school there is a big difference.

            If he lost the certificate why swear under oath that it was with the military board?
            Why can he not just get CTCs from Cambridge examination board? He is in London and can pick up the certificate in person

    ‘I cannot change my past, but can change the present and Future ‘-Buhari at chattan House. The Question is why not allow the person who is trying in the present to continue and improve in future? On corruption when you awarded all the operations of PTF to a firm owned by your relation and unilaterally paid billions of Naira as fees to this firm,what shall we call that or when you block the probe of the then NNPC missing $2.8billion probe,what do we call that?

      Just listen to yourself. If somebody tried his best for six years and nothing comes out of it, then we should give that same person another opportunity to mess up the more.

There must be something special about this buhari. They postponed feb24 because of Buhari, in their rallies its buhari. In aso rock, its buhari.

  • Charles Owolabi

    There is nothing wrong with the way Buhari spoke after all Engish is not his mother tounge. Even the Irish and scots speak English with an accent.
    However we should focus on the message that he delivered which in my openion was shallow and hurried.
    His speech lacked content and deep analysis. This is because he did not posses the material.
    His handlers had also failed in ensuring that Buhari was well prepared for this outing. He almost looked like a man who was deeply frightened of slipping and you could see the discomfort all through the event.
    It also hurt that while he was proffering solutions for the Boko Harm crises his opponent was right there in the war front with the troops acting very Presidential
    Some how Good Luck has again come the way of GEJ.
    Boko haram has been decimated by the superior power of the Nigerian Military and most of them have been pushed into lake Chad.
    Further the PVCs are now going out to GEJ s strong holds
    It is also out of money and unable to sustain their campaign momentum
    Even in presumed APC strong holds it seems PDP has been able to glavernize non traditional votes or non indegines and are Making a strong showing
    Across the country PDP has mobilized right down to the ward level and it is now clear that the army General is on the retreat.
    This past 2 weeks has certainly not been good for the APC and as I have always said Buhari despite his many good qualities has lost this one.
    The chickens have come home to roost
    His past has come back to hunt him
    Why did APC not select a younger progressive Northerner like Kwakwanso or El rufia?

    • Uzoma John

      I upvoted you only for your first paragraph but I will remind you that under your young GEJ, Nigeria has turn into robbers den, a country ruled by criminals whose quest for stealing is insatiable. Nigerians have decided to vote Buhari. You can vote your GEJ. March 28 is around the corner. Crumb eater. Devil’s advocate.

      • Charles Owolabi

        John there is no need for insults
        We can agree to disagree
        However the facts do not support your position. Nigeria has improved in the corruption index according to transparency international
        Who are the thieves you are talking about- Tinubu , Amechi, El rufia, Bokola Saraki , Silver to name a few.
        All APC men
        Think about it?

        • Uzoma John

          The guilty are always afraid. Now you are using the Transparency International report as a yardstick for your imagined improvement on the corruption index. By how many points please? Tell me of any reasonable country Nigeria improved against on the index. You people amaze me. But same assessment from the Economist and NY Times were seen to be rubbish abi? Only the one that favours you, you will take. What are the realities on ground in Nigeria today Mr Transparency International? Dumb asses. I will continue to insult anyone who peddles lies on this platform. Nonsense

          • Charles Owolabi

            I hope you read the papers today. What did it say about the Nigerian economy?
            You are simply a hired hand who is not capable of proper analysis.
            Kindly state what the economist had to say. Please don’t use Soludonomics as a basis for your analysis.
            It is now agreed in intellectual circles that if you want to tell economic lies you pull a soludo.
            Please let us talk proper economics.

          • Uzoma John

            Which paper? Thisday or Vanguard. Rubbish. Economy does not grow on the pages of newspapers but reflects on the standard of living of a nation’s citizenry. What is the dependency ration of a Nigerian grduate on parents and guardians today as compared to 7 to 8 years back? What is the rate of unemployment today as against 7 to 8 years ago? What is the power generation a capacity of Nigeria today compared to 7 to 8 years ago. How many manufacturing firms are still functional today? For the first time in the history of Nigeria, your GEJ and his wicked government swindled over 1 million Nigerian youths of =N=1,000 each, for a non-existence Immigration job, which even led to the death of many. You guys are without shame. If I were you, I would think twice before coming to a public domain to display you ignorance.

          • Onike24

            Why are you wasting your time? These people are impervious to Logic, leave them, I am sure this fellow will vote for Buhari after all the bluster here, no human can vote to continue suffering

          • Charles Owolabi

            Since you talk about the economist as your source would you accept more credible sources like the world bank, the African development bank , the African Export Import Bank, and the Federal Office of statistics as acceptable sources so that we can have a manful discussion?
            I don’t want us talking about apples and oranges.
            We need to be on the same page
            You introduce concepts never measured in economics maybe you can state your subjective sources which obviously are not based on empirical research.
            Let us agree on the parameters of our discussion first before we proceed.

          • This are some the things we read concerning the economy today;: poverty level when Jonathan came to power was 54% but now 70%. Gdp growth from 11% to 6%. Excess crude account from $20b to $ 2 b. National debt from $ 26b to $ 70b. 13, 000 lost their lives, 3m people displaced, and hundreds under captivity including 220 chibok girls. Tell us the source of #30b you masqueraded as TAN to campaign for Gej. Explain to us the whereabout of #250b pension fund. The source of #6.2b Jonathan gave to ohanaeze to get their endorsement and #70b he dished out to CAN. What happened to the 2.6t naira fuel subsidy scam and the suspects. Tell your client to conduct the election biko. We are waiting patiently with our pvcs.

          • Charles Owolabi

            Rabbit this is bogus economics and statistics.
            There has been a decline in poverty levels since GEJ took over. I refer you to the world bank country report on Nigeria 2014 the rate is 32 percent and not 70 percent – fake economics. Baseless information
            Nigeria was reclassified as a middle income country by the world bank a year and a half ago per capita income is now over 2000 dollars 2380 dollars to be specific.
            Nigeria has been for the past 4 years one of the fastest growing economies of the world with a growth rate in excess of 6 percent.
            The rebased economy shows that the country is being completely diversified with oil and gas contributing only 15 percent of GDP
            The economy today is the largest in Africa with a GdP in excess of 500 billion Dollars per annum
            The country currently maintains a Credit rating of BB- despite a general lowering of world growth expect ions by the IMf and despite the decline in crude oil earnings
            The deflection of the excess crude account was not done under GEJ but under Yaradua. He is responsible for the gross reduction of the reserves which he claimed was to meet the global economic crises at the time.
            He also did a wholesome increase in the salaries of civil servants by 58 percent and increased the wage bill/ recurrent expenditure from 200 billion to 1.3 trillion Naira per year.
            The minister for finance stated that when she arrived the second time our reserves had gone down from 43 billion to 21 billion dollars
            These are facts. GEJ inherited a bade position where recurrent expenditure was up to 74.8 percent of the budget.
            You talk about the fuel subsidy scam? Why did you not listen to NOI when she asked for a total removal of the subsidy? El rufia Oby ezekwesili and labor went on rampage Insisting that the subsidy must remain.
            Where were you then?
            It Took a brave
            NOI to conduct a comprehensive study of the sector and to identify the theives.
            My brother they are being prosecuted
            Please keep bit real

        • Maitama Tambari

          Charles Owolabi, you are a dumb person because you have not read the Peoples General, GMB speech or if you have read it you did not understand the topic first and the intent of the presentation and its content. You must be a Nigerian educated person who loves to hear and read hyperbolic words even if they do not understand their meanings, or total lies as being told to us by President Jonathan in his speech without content or direction. If I had your email address I would have sent you President Obama’s State of the Union speech, equally presented as GMB at this presentation. You are being mischievous or working directly in the Office of Femi Fani Kayode, the money launder. CHANGE! YES WE CAN.

          • Charles Owolabi

            Tambari you are a sick individual who must be a hired hand. Buhari is not capable of using any big words in the first place. I listened to his entire speech and it lacked content.
            It did not contain any clear path for the change he was advocating. It lacked the intellectually rigor expected from a person seeking such high office
            Again Buhari did not poses the material and it showed.
            I can now understand why he would not agree for a debate with GEJ. He would have been decimated.
            It is clear that the man has an attention deficit disorder.
            Did you see him skip some lines and then pull back?
            This fellows age is showing
            The General needs to retire and go and play with his grand kids

          • Interesting! I can see that you are a die hard proponent of underperformer. buhari is far better than Jonathan. Gej has never be coherent and emphatic in any interview. His eyes and body movement lacks phd like composure. My little daughter laugh at Jonathan last two weeks when he was on a media chat. The only thing Gej knows very well is Liesssssssssssssss. Tell him to conduct the election Jare, We are tired of bad governance.

          • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

            Oswolabi, it would help your corner a great deal if you can attach samples of the sterling, superlative, fabulous and awe-inspiring speeches of GEJ for us to see.

            I have listen to GMB over the course of this campaign and have grown to admire his ability to inspire, not just by words, but also by deeds.

            Contrawise, GEJ has been less than inspiring and actually painful to watch and listen to, on the few occasions I have been unfortunate or foolhardy enough to venture into allowing the TV station to stay on him while flicking through.

            GEJ actually makes me cringe the way the spittles fly out of his mouth when he is talking; his lip curling antics are also quite demonic. Don’t let us mention his general comportment, but suffice to say, an angry motor park tout would be happy to project a similar countenance.

            You cannot compare the carriage and decorum of each with the other. GMB trumps GEJ in class and acceptability, even when talking extempore.

          • Charles Owolabi

            My brother are we talking about the same man who can not even remember his vice presidential candidates name.
            Since his entire campaign Buhari has not spent up to 10 minutes addressing voters each time he is called upon to speak. Talk less of inspiring people- wonders would never end
            You talk about GEJ. Did you listen to his speech to our troops just yesterday.
            Did you hear the thundering response from the troops as he went on – Never again, Never Again . His speech brought tears to the eyes of so many Nigerians- tears of joy
            For the first time in our history the Nigerian army is well equipped with sophisticated weapons and are on the ascendancy with Boko Haram
            Did you see the new aircrafts in action – bet you liked that.
            We at least thank God that the Barboon and the Monkey are not yet soaked in Blood
            We would have a peaceful election and the old man can retire.
            He needs the rest don’t you think ?

          • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

            Bruv, have you ever heard this simile before – “the longer the spoke, the bigger the tyre”?

            Yeah, I watched the choreographed 6-minutes video (photo) opp for GEJ. Approximately one minute to make up for each year lost to boko haram, wouldn’t you say?

            Sadly, while the minutes are easy to equate to 6-years, the lives lost cannot be equated so easily. My take? Never again!!!!!

            On an aside, did you also not know that action speaks louder than words?

            GEJ, I am afraid, is an empty basket hoping to gather, but unfortunately leaking out, empty words.

        • famaks

          Tell us the cases they have and tell us why your clueless choice refused to arrest thieves known to you his supporters.

          • Charles Owolabi

            FamAks because this president believes in the rule of law. Where individual rights are respected. That is the very reason individuals are even allowed to abuse him openly and he does nothing. Something that would never happen under a dictator like Buhari. Surly if it were Buhari the Barboon and the monkey would have been soaked in blood.
            GEJ believes in allowing people to go through the proper judicial processes before arrests are made. He is certainly not Obasanjo who plays to the gallery. A man who shows off arrests and obtains no convictions.
            Surly those people are going to jail . They know it.
            That is why for them this election is a do or die affair. They are fighting to save their skin.
            It would be brutal inGEJs second term
            Mark my words

    • Diamond Nivax

      Dreamer! Anybody can win Jonathan. Unless all Nigerians are spellbound to commit suicide. Buhari is lucky to be the one available.

    • August January

      Have you ever given a public talk? If yes, then I expect you to know there is limit to what you can deliver within 30 mins. You can’t delve into everything you have in mind. Being able to keep to the time allocated to your talk is one of the most important thing, which the moderator also pointed out in Buhari’s talk. So, there must be some tradeoffs. Besides, not everyone is an Obama or a Soyinka. At any rate, anyone who says Jonathan would have performed better than that is disoriented and insincere, because we have all listened to him for almost 6 years now, and we also know how he answers questions during his media chat.

    • Tayo Ayodele

      Which one is shallow now? How Buhari handled questions or the ‘goat and yam’ analogy. In Yoruba mythology goat is a stubborn, heady and foolhardy animal and should never have used as analogous to humans, let alone Nigerians. Not that I want to engage you again because I have seen through some line of mischief in your posts.

  • Anene Mercy

    APC will lose badly in this election. They will regrect handing their ticket over to and old weak frail candidate without certificate.

    Let the Chatham House vote for Buhari while nigerians vote for GEJ.

    • True Nigerian

      Dear ignoramus or hypocrite, President Jonathan scrambled for a chance to speak at Chatham House as a candidate in the 2011 elections. Okay? I was there and saw him together with his fraudulent aide, Reno Omokri, who behaved like a tout at the event. He (Jonathan) wanted Nigerian votes only; so why did he speak at Chatham House during his campaign in 2011?

      I hope the above Panadol (information) cures your hopeless ignorance, hypocrisy or selective amnesia.

    • August January

      You have made up your mind to die a mumu!

  • Victor Gee

    Few months ago, Buhari claimed to be broke. He did not even have money to pay for the nomination form for his presidential ambition. Today, he sits on the treasury of some of the richest states in Nigeria, namely, Lagos, Rivers states, etc. So, come to think of it, head or tail, Buhari wins; a very ‘poor’ General now traveling with private jets locally and internationally; prestigious access to the best medical personnel and health facility in the world; unlimited cash flow from rich states and individuals in Nigeria; free grooming by the best media propaganda machines and PR firms money can buy in the world; hyperbolic attempts to launder and convert a dictatorial image of a despot to a democrat… what else can anyone really ask for? The man is already on top of the world. let him enjoy joor, na him God butter bread for am… mugu must fall!
    However, how about the Rivers state people and their money governor Amaechi is throwing around? What if Buhari failed to win the mandate of Nigerians next month, how is he going to recoup this money? Lagos, of course, is a vibrant economy and governor Fashola has not been worshiping and following Buhari around like boy boy. So his case is different…
    Anyway, am not even sure I will have any sympathy for Amaechi when he crashes and burns. The doctrine of Karma is loading…

    • August January

      Mumu!! He’s only a flag bearer of the party, and, therefore, it’s the duty of the party to finance its candidate. That’s why the names of parties ate what you see on ballot papers. .

  • Victor Gee

    Buhari speaking at Chatham House, tried to look fit but it was obvious he looked weak, frail and tired. On the questions asked to him, he was vague and evasive. . He denied ever saying that attack on Boko is an attack on the North. He failed to answer the question on Sharia but was called back by the moderator to do so. He even admitted he may not meet the expectations of Nigerians in transforming the country. I wonder what the euphoria is all about…

    • sanetalk

      Why is reasoning deficit a trademark of you GEJ supporters? Have you paused to ponder on why your sponsor is baring his fangs on BH now that elections are near and why despite being in control of all the security agencies, he has not found anything against GMB? And the Umaru Dikko thing reinforces the no corruption tag of GMB which Nigeria desperately requires. Strangely when you guys try to malign GMB, it ends up in positive campaign for him.

    Buhari is a man full of contradictions. – He will fight corruption but Tinubu is his friend.- He will give us security but he was pushed out of office like a chicken by his subordinates.- He is honest but lies about his qualification.- He has no N 27 million to buy presidential nomination form but the wife has N 135 millionworth of drugs to donate.- He is poor but all his children schools abroad.The GEJ we already know is far better… #GEJ4NIJA

    • August January

      Why are you so ignorant? Every former president or head of state is entitled to the same salary as the incumbent president. So, he can’t send his children on studies abroad from that? About donating drugs, there are thousands, if not millions, of international NGOs ready to assist such cause. They won’t give money, but they would provide the drugs when your cause is genuine. Patience Jonathan can’t link up with such NGOs because she won’t know how to address them in English! Besides, studying abroad can be achieved in different ways, one of them being scholarships. I know you will say it’s not possible — I know three children of the same parents doing their PhDs in the UK presently with scholarships. Yes, it’s difficult to believe.
