The Presidency has advised Nigerians to be wary of what comes out from the opposition, especially the Peoples Democratic Party, so as “not to be misled into voting for a party that sees nothing wrong with corruption.”
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, gave the advice when he reacted to PDP’s allegations against the Buhari administration.
Shehu, in a statement in Abuja on Wednesday, said the PDP would rather have “everyone drenched in its colours, as they irretrievably are.’’
According to him, the PDP has continued spreading lies about the Buhari administration in the mistaken assumption that its toga of corruption will dissipate if it succeeds in black-painting every other person as corrupt.
He said: “The strategy is to make corruption appear as normative and that everyone is involved. They think by so doing, Nigerians will forgive them for their sins. This is a huge mistake.
“The PDP has become an ill wind on the country, and the elections next year present the citizens an excellent opportunity to save the country from it.
“We can’t imagine a sane organisation shamelessly telling Nigerians that President Buhari is looting, as they themselves did, the recovered loot, the $322m lately recovered from the Abacha family. This is an irresponsible lie.’’
