Spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Team, Charles Aniagwu, has condemned the recent attempt by the All-Progressives Congress (APC) to derail the electoral process by resorting to cheap blackmail. Aniagwu stated this while briefing the press in Asaba.
Aniagwu said: “They have cooked up stories because they have, of course, seen that our presidential candidate is winning the minds of Nigerians, based on the conviction by a good number of Nigerians that Atiku Abubakar is a man that has got all it takes to recover this country and place us in the path of growth and development.
“They have gone to wake up a blackmailer and called him a whistle blower. Let me put it on record that Mike Achimugu was not a staff of Atiku Abubakar. He worked with one of the support groups.”
Aniagwu urged Nigerians not to make the mistake of submitting themselves to internal slavery by the APC as it would be detrimental to the country.
“The APC presidential candidate, as you know, has captured Lagos State and what he is looking for is to expand territorial control beyond Lagos to the entire country in form of slavery.
“A number of the major projects and programmes in Lagos are controlled by this same individual. You also know how he hand picks those who govern Lagos State.
“And for such a person to want to now aspire to preside over our country, you know that will be detrimental to all of us. It means we want to submit ourselves to slavery,” he said.
Speaking further on the need for Nigerians to be wary of the APC candidate and his slave master antecedents, he said “Nigerians should be wary and ask Lagosians what they are going through and whether that is what they want to happen to them as a country? And I want to say God forbid.”
Aniagwu made it clear that his party would not be distracted by the antics of the opposition, as the presidential candidate of the party is abreast with the issues facing the country. He stated that many Nigerians had lost their jobs with more that 133million Nigerians suffering from multidimensional poverty, insecurity, disunity, among others.
Aniagwu assured Nigerians that the Atiku/Okowa presidential team had mapped out strategies to fix the underlying issues that had eaten deep into the fabric of Nigeria.
