The Atiku Presidential Campaign Organisation (APCO) has dismissed as fake a document purportedly detailing the campaign strategy of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Candidate, Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, ahead of the election.
The spokesman of APCO, Segun Sowunmi, who said the fake document is the handiwork of the All Progressives Congress (APC), noted that it was reflective of a ruling party that specialises in manufacturing fake documents.
The campaign organisation was reacting to a document circulating online allegedly detailing the campaign strategy of Atiku after his meetings with PDP leaders in Dubai, recently.
The document alleged plans by the PDP and Atiku to disparage the President Muhammadu Buhari and his Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, among other things.
Reacting, Sowunmi, who spoke with LEADERSHIP, said the campaign strategy of PDP and Atiku is to unite Nigeria, create jobs, restructure the country and obey the rule of law.
“We find it extremely unfortunate that a party that has now been known for forgery has forged an itinerary that the PDP and Atiku knows nothing about. We want to plead with them that they are the ones that got the documents and manufactured it.
For a political party that is in the habit of manufacturing fake results, one is not surprised that they could also come up with a fake list of things that PDP wants to do,” the spokesman said.
He continued, “They might be looking for where we hid our strategy but our strategy is very simple.
We are coming to the Nigerian people with an agenda that will liberate them from the lackluster situation that the APC has put us through in the last three years. Therefore Nigerians know we are going to create jobs, open up the economy, unite and secure them and we will be civil about it. Nigerians also know that we will restructure the country and we are going to be serious about it. Nigerians know we are going to build a consensus about our attitude. Nigerians know that we will obey the rule of law and not lock up people in disregard of the rule of law and court orders.
“Nigerians know that we have a very serious leader that neither play with words or bandy words. Our leader is not sensational about leadership he rolls up his sleeves and gets the job done. And Nigerians knows that a vote for Atiku will make their lives a lot more meaningful, let’s get Nigeria working again and forget about the APC and their capacity to come up with all sorts of fake things. I am sure that if you go through the entire gamut of the APC architecture you will find out that most of them have a lot of fake certificates.
