The All Progressives Congress (APC) said it has observed that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has displayed early signs of depression due to frustration.
The APC also said the former Vice-President had resorted to throwing allegations rather than convincing Nigerians on why he should be elected as President in the 2019 general election.
Atiku had earlier on Wednesday criticized President Muhammadu Buhari who on Tuesday said that it was the system that was slow and not him in the fight against corruption.
But Atiku, in his opinion, believes the sluggish approach of President Buhari was the problem and not the system, saying, “Mr President, the problem with your anti-corruption war is not the system. You are the problem!”
However, a statement on Thursday by the APC National Publicity Secretary, Mr Lanre Issa-Onilu, said, “The PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, is exhibiting early signs of depression, resulting from obvious frustration.
“Consequently, he is unable to focus on his campaign.
“Otherwise, Atiku should tell Nigerians why a discredited person like him should be elected as President instead of raising puerile allegations on a daily basis. President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC appear to be his main campaign issues, not his programmes for the country.”
“The trajectory is exciting as we see a brighter future showing up. We won’t yield to the PDP’s shenanigans. The obvious strategy of the PDP is to truncate the country’s journey towards economic buoyancy and social stability. We will not play the PDP’s game.
“PDP is acting an anti-people’s script. President Buhari remains unshaken by the desperate efforts being made by Atiku and PDP to blackmail the APC government. Everyone who was involved in corrupt practices would be brought to justice.
“PDP is not offering any alternative to the progressive course this government is pursuing. It is actually apparent that the party is not contesting the 2019 elections to redeem itself, least of doing any good for the country.”
