The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) reacted yesterday to the choice of Prof. Yemi Osinbajo as running mate to the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), General Muhammadu Buhari.
In a statement yesterday by its National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, after the APC unveiled Osibajo, the party described Osibanjo as APC National Leader Bola Tinubu’s acolyte, saying he served under him as Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice.
The statement was full of abuses. It described Gen. Buhari as incompetent because, said the PDP, Tinubu chose his deputy.
The APC’s choice of running mate as been hail as an exhibition of the “beauty of democracy”. But to the PDP, which was said to have been jittery after the news of Osinbajo’s choice was broken, “our citizens should indeed be concerned that it took the APC six days to produce its vice presidential candidate.
“Fortunately, the PDP offers to all Nigerians a truly national party and a Jonathan/Sambo ticket ready to build a better tomorrow.
“In PDP, the focus remains to ensure that we continue to deliver on our promises and put the interests of Nigerians first in all our party decisions and policies of our government,” the ruling party said.
