All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Organisation has described the wife of the President, Dame Patience Jonathan as “an incredibly crude woman” even as it praises Nigerians for putting up with her.
Director of media and publicity for the party’s Presidential Campaign Organisation, Garba Shehu, in a statement Abuja today, said that it is not only insulting for Dame Patience to describe the presidential candidate of APC, General Muhammadu Buhari as “brain-dead” it is also demeaning of her status as the First Lady.
He asked President Jonathan to call his wife to order, saying that it is discourteous and inexcusable for a wife of any president with a modicum of decency to make such a false and infantile pronouncement about the health status of another man on account of politics.
Garba Shehu recalled that in recent time, Dame Patience had made statements invoking violence, including the one she made in Calabar over the weekend when she urged PDP supporters to “stone” all those canvassing for change.
He said that it is below the standard of a wife of a President to stoop so low to call for violent attacks against members of the opposition even as he noted that while a good number of Nigerians are not taken by surprise by Dame Patience’s recent incredulous pronouncements, it is important for her husband to put her in bridles in the spirit of the Abuja Peace Accord.
Garba Shehu said that though the “indecent and disgraceful the outbursts of Mrs. Jonathan was in attempting to pull the wool over the eyes of Nigerians about her husband’s incompetence to lead the country, it is typical of the PDP’s modus operandi to confuse Nigerians with mundane issues instead of the issues of corruption, for which her husband has achieved an unbeaten record; his appalling lack of capacity to secure life and property of citizens and a glaring incompetence in dealing with the challenges facing the economy.”
Garba Shehu also condemned the desperate tactics of President Jonathan of using religion to gain sympathy and remain in office at all costs, saying that it is surprising why the President has turned worship centres into platforms for making official statements or announcing government policies.
He said that this absurdity defies the norms of government practices, and that the President is deliberately doing so “in the belief that the manipulation of religious sentiments would cover up the multitudes of his epic failures.”
According to Malam Garba Shehu, using worship centres as platforms for making major official statements could create precedents that the country could not handle in the future.
He said that if predecessor Presidents did not use the Mosques or Churches to make official statements of public importance, it is wrong for President Jonathan to start something that is already sending the wrong message.
He said with the exploitation of religion for political gains, President Jonathan and his PDP-led government have lost any basis to accuse its presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari of being a religious “bigot” or “fanatic”.
Meanwhile, the APC presidential campaign said it was scandalized by reports of money being allegedly shared to religious leaders by President Jonathan in order to buy their conscience.
It said that it is incredibly embarrassing about why a government would allegedly seek to bribe religious leaders in order to cover up its misdeeds and win re-election, despite its incompetence and non-performance.
It regretted that bribing religious leaders would not only bring them into disrepute but also make nonsense of President Jonathan’s claim to fight corruption. [myad]
