ENUGU — The All Progressives Congress, APC, South East zone, has described President Goodluck Jonathan as a man desperate to get re-elected in 2015 general elections by hook or crook.
The party said that Jonathan’s desperation was for the second time was unveiled during the Peoples Democratic Party,, PDP, zonal South East rally in Enugu, weekend.
APC stated that President Jonathan’s verbal attack on their party in Enugu gave him out as a man obsessed with do-or-die politics in his bid for a second term.
Jonathan said the APC was progressing to nowhere in particular but to hell, adding that his party was the only true democratic party in Nigeria.
The APC South East spokesman, Mr. Osita Okechukwu, noted that President Jonathan’s speech was uncouth, unpresidential and show-cased a desperate President in his quest for a second term.
“How can a president throw caution to the winds, mount the rostrum only to cast aspersions on our great party, the APC? It means he has not found time to read the manifesto of APC, which has War Against Corruption as the first cardinal programme, a war Jonathan detests,” he said.
Okechukwu reminded his party members that penultimate week, during the North East zonal rally in Bauchi State, the President, instead of narrating his efforts in combating Boko Haram insurgency, resorted to blame games, insults and invectives, which was unbecoming of a President.
Okechukwu called on Ndigbo to distance themselves from President Jonathan, insisting that a vote for Jonathan in 2015 would be a wasted vote.
He noted that Niger Deltans were even disappointed with his poor performance since he failed in four years to complete the East-West road which cut across the length and breadth of the region.
He said: “Will it not be foolhardy to expect anything good from the same President with the same inchoate, nebulous and anti-people economic policy, bedeviled by pervasive and monumental corruption?
“For you cannot vote the same President with the same inept and clueless leadership qualities and expect different result.
”On Enugu International Airport, he said in spite of the hype, it cannot attract major international airlines like British Airways, Lufthansa unless the coal industry is reactivated and it is only the APC that can do this.”
