//Don’t Make Buhari’s Family A Campaign Subject,’ Presidency Tells PDP

The Presidency has warned the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) not to make the family of President Muhammadu Buhari a campaign subject in the 2019 elections. Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, in a statement on Wednesday said the PDP should rather address consequences of their 16-year of rule in Nigeria than bring the President’s family into the 2019 elections.

“The PDP leadership cannot afford to make family an issue in this campaign. Need I say more? The only thing I want to add is that PDP is engaging in mud-slinging because it finds it easier than speaking on their despicable 16-year record in the course of which they abused the trust of Nigerians. “They made a mess of everything including the economy, security, and infrastructure. It has come to the destiny of President Muhammadu Buhari to correct their mistakes.

“The PDP doesn’t see anything beyond grabbing power, power at all costs. It is an irony that a party that boasted as being the largest in Africa is now begging small parties for alliances. A Presidential contest is more than the issuance of daily press releases containing falsehoods,” Shehu said.
