Jonathan not sponsoring ethnic militia – Fani-Kayode


The Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organisation, PDPPCO, on Sunday dismissed the allegation by the All Progressives Congress, APC, that President Goodluck Jonathan was sponsoring ethnic militia to disrupt the 2015 general elections.

The APC’s allegation came on Sunday barely two weeks t the presidential election.
Reacting to the allegation by the APC, the Director of Media and Publicity of the PDPPCO, Femi Fani-Kayode, said the statement by the APC was full of lies.

“Once again, Lai Mohammed has indulged in lies on behalf of his lying party, the APC. It is not true that the PDP or the Federal Government is sponsoring ethnic militias. It is also not true that N9 billion has been allocated for that purpose,” he said.

“It is rather the APC that has consistently supported and sponsored the Boko Haram both in substance and in their utterances over the last few years. This recourse to telling a lie every day by the opposition party will not in any way assist them in achieving their objectives.

“We will remain focused on the issues. We will talk about their weaknesses and we will also talk about the achievements of President Goodluck Jonathan on why it is that it is important that he is re-elected back into power on March 28. That is our focus.

“We have said it before and we will say it again: these people have become prisoners of their own delusions; they have become victims of their own hallucinations and fantasies. They have become paranoid such that they are sleeping and hiding under their beds.

“They are running from their own shadows and what we are witnessing is simply the judgment of God on them. They have lost their peace. They are running when nobody is chasing them and that is why they are saying these things.

“It is really is a pity that it has degenerated to this point. But the fact of the matter is that no serious-minded persons will take them seriously when they talk like this.”

Concerning the allegation from the APC that President Jonathan’s gesture to families of victims of the Nigerian Immigration Service saga almost a year after the tragic aptitude test the agency conducted, Fani-Kayode said: “it is not the PDP that feeds off the blood of other individuals; it is not the PDP that is a party of ritualists and cultists; it is not the PDP that encourages and supports terrorist organisations that have slaughtered about 35,000 people over the last three years.

“It was the APC that did that when Lai Mohammed said that it was unconstitutional and unjust for the Federal Government to proscribe Boko Haram. We do not feed off calamity; they are the ones that do that and they consistently do that and they will continue to do that and that is why we are saying they are not fit to take power in this country.

“Mr. President’s gesture concerning the victims of the calamity that took place last year when all those young people were killed was a noble gesture and was simply an acknowledgment of the fact that these people died under very, very sad circumstances.

“It was simply an attempt to alleviate the suffering and pain of the families of those that were killed and no right-thinking person will read any other meaning to that.

“It was a reflection of the compassion and the inherent goodness that reside in Mr. President’s heart and I think every patriotic and right-thinking Nigerian should commend him for that and not talk about feeding off people’s calamity. We are not cultists in the PDP. It is the APC that is filled with cultists and ritualists.”
