The Peoples Democratic Party has advised Nigerians not to vote for the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, because he is “semi-illiterate.”
Sahara Reporters made it known that the statement was made by the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Prof. Wale Oladipo during a meeting of the party in the diaspora at the party’s headquarters in Abuja on Monday.
Oladipo was quoted saying:
“But I know that God loves this country so much. “God has decided that this country will remain indivisible and has decided that this country will continue to wax stronger.”God has decreed it that we continue to pilot the affairs of this country and continue to implement the transformation agenda. “They have passed through a motion and endorsed their perennial candidate. We have beaten him three times, we are going to beat him once again.
“The next election is going to be between darkness and light, it is going to be between a cross cosmopolitan highly-focused Ph.D holder and a semi-literate jakput. “Nigeria cannot afford to go back, we will continue to move forward.”
Urging the representatives of various chapters to understand that they will be called upon to enlighten Nigerians on the programmes of the PDP wherever they reside in the world, Oladipo said:
“You will also be called upon to counter negative propaganda that the APC is making against our party and our country in different countries of this world.
“Of course, we are not perfect but our mission is perfect. We mean well for this country and we believe the country should continue to be one and that we should be a market-driven economy while at the same time, providing succor for the weak. “
