Poll: Your Election motivation too little – APC tells President Jonathan

Poll: Your Election motivation too little – APC tells President Jonathan

The All Progressives Congress, APC,
has described as too little, too late the
recent, election-propelled pretend acts
of governance by President Goodluck
Jonathan to convince Nigerians to
vote for him and his party in the
forthcoming polls.
”Mr. President, you cannot undo, in
six weeks, the glaring instances of
cluelessness, incompetence and near
total lack of governance that your
administration has exhibited in the
past six years, even if you move Aso
Rock to the South-west or bribe every
Nigerian with the proceeds of
corruption,” the party said in a
statement issued in Lagos on Sunday
by its National Publicity Secretary,
Lai Mohammed.
”Your Administration-sanctioned
smear campaigns against APC
leaders, your obscenity-laden meeting
with youths, your offer of jobs to 167
out of over 40 million unemployed
youths, and your temporary relocation
to the South-west where you believe
your naira and dollar rain will
translate to votes are all belated and
of no effect,” it said.
APC said all the President’s latter-
day efforts went up in smokes on
Saturday when over one million
Nigerians marched through the streets
of Lagos in support of change, even
as a hurriedly-organized, pretend
march led by the President in Abuja
failed to distract from the success of
the Lagos march, as envisaged by the
organizers.
The party said its latest opinion poll
on the forthcoming elections shows
that Nigerians have already made up
their minds regarding which party
they will vote for, even before the
six-week postponement of the
elections, which was orchestrated to
allow the sinking PDP and its
candidates at all levels to recover
from the dizzying effect of the daily
blows being dealt on them by
Nigerians.
It said a President who was playing
dirty politics while over 15,000
Nigerians were being murdered by
the evil Boko Haram cannot now
expect to reap from a sudden
resurgence in the fight against the
terrorists.
”Mr. President, you had all of six years to secure
the lives and property of Nigerians, provide jobs,
improve the economy, give Nigerians constant
power supply and curb corruption, but you did
none of those things.
”Under your watch, Mr. President, the economy
has virtually collapsed with the US dollar now
exchanging for over 220 Naira, the highest ever,
millions of youths are roaming the streets even as
your government fleeces them from time to time
over phantom jobs, industries are collapsing in
droves, Nigerians are more divided than ever,
many states and even the FG can’t pay workers’
salaries and corruption is at an all-time high as the
looting of the public treasury has become the order
of the day while Nigerians have never felt so
insecure.
”It is amazing, therefore, how you can even think
that six weeks of unprecedented bribery of
individuals, pretend governance, and cash-induced
occult-like ‘prayer’ sessions, among others, will
turn the tide in your favour. Nigerians are not
fooled by your antics, Mr. President. Your efforts
are too little, too late,” APC said.
The party said it is now glaring that the missing 20
billion dollars, the multi-billion-naira pension scam
and the multi-trillion oil subsidy fraud, just to
mention a few, all fed into the massive bribery that
the Jonathan Administration has engaged in over
the past few weeks, hoping to buy the votes of
Nigerians.
It said, however, that such profligate and immoral
act would not have been necessary if the
administration had done what it was elected to do
in the first instance: provide good governance!
”They thought six weeks constitute an eternity.
Well, six weeks are almost over now and
Nigerians are ready to give the Jonathan
Administration the score-sheet it deserves, because
they are more interested in contents than in labels,
hence would not be hoodwinked by the contrived
acts of governance,” APC said.
The party thanked Nigerians for their support, both
morally and financially, that has seen the APC
becoming a people-driven movement.
”In spite of the massive muckraking by the
Jonathan Administration, the use of statistics to
dish lies to the public about economic growth and
the unprecedented bribery of some citizens,
Nigerians are solidly behind us and we thank them
for their support. We urge them to continue to
eschew all acts of violence even in the face of the
most egregious provocations, and to remain
vigilant in the three weeks remaining to the
decisive elections,” it said.
