2019: Group accuses PDP of engaging in campaign of misinformation

Alhaji Abdulmumini Jibrin, the Director of the team, made the allegation at a news conference on Monday in Abuja.

The Director-General of the opposition PDP campaign in an uninspiring interview attempted to cast aspersion on the present government forgetting he is indeed part of the government,” he said.

He stated that no government in the country’s history had changed the socio-political and economic lives of Nigerians in a more positive way as had been experienced by the sterling performance of the Buhari-led administration.

He recalled that the Buhari administration in 2015 campaigned on three major issues, including the economy, corruption and security.

He said there were so far, positive developments that were difficult to ignore nationwide on the three issues.

In the fight against corruption, the administration has recorded landmark achievements. They include the strict implementation of TSA, blocking leakages, mutual legal aid assistance and signing up to the Open Government Partnership (OGP).

“In terms of fighting insecurity, the government has made headway in the North-East but the war is far from being over as the Boko Haram sect has been degraded to the fringes of Lake Chad basin,” he said.

On his committee’s strategic plan for polling units ahead to ensure APC’s electoral victory at the polls, Jibrin said: “May I use this opportunity to unveil operation Lashe Akwatuna’’.

He explained that Operation Lashe Akwatuna was a voter mobilisation and awareness project by the team under the chairperson of the wife of President Buhari, Aisha.

According to him, the project is a one-day voter mobilisation and awareness campaign in the 119,937 polling units across the country, concurrently for Buhari and All APC candidates in the coming elections.

“Operation Lashe Akwatuna will cover all segments of voters in a unit which comprises of our supporters, undecided voters and opposition voters.

“The operation will carry its campaign to the doorstep of these three segments of voters in polling units across the country on the same day and at the same time.

“The operation will use the APC structure in the 119,937 units across the country and various campaign committees of Governorship, Senatorial, House of Representatives and States Assemblies candidates who will come together to organise the operation in the units,” he said.

Jibrin added that the committee would mobilise a strong procession that would go round polling units to engage eligible voters on the achievements of the present administration and the need for the re-election of Buhari.

This, he said, they would do, going from door to door, adding that the procession will ensure that it covered every nook and cranny of the units.

He expressed optimism that the operation would take the party’s campaign to the grassroots which was the base of its voting population and polling units.

“This one-day operation can be repeated severally and concurrently across the country before election day,” he further said.

He commended the wife of the president for the revolution she had brought into the political arena by recognising the role of women and youth in political campaigns.

Jibrin said this was unprecedented, adding that the initiative had manifested in the massive turn out of electorate at APC rallies in states visited so far.

He said this had indeed given another level of power to women and youths who were the true determinants of any election.
