The spokesperson for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) campaign organization, Femi Fani-Kayode has said that the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Muhammadu Buhari is a lover of Boko Haram.
PDP spokesperson says Buhari loves Boko Haram
Fani-Kayode also mocked Buhari for going to speak in a foreign land while refusing to be part of a debate in Nigeria.
The PDP spokesperson made the comments via a statement released on Thursday, February 26, in response to Buhari’s appearance at Chatham Housein London.
The statement reads:
“It is amazing that a man that refuses to participate in a debate in his own country is so ready to go to a foreign country to sell his message in a desperate attempt to curry favor with the people of that country.”
“We wonder whether General Buhari told his foreign audience whilst he was in London how much he loves Boko Haram. We wonder whether he told them that he once said that he believes that ”an attack on Boko Haram is an attack on the north” and that the Boko Haram terrorists should be appeased, pampered, resettled and paid allowances.”
“We wonder if he told them that he was once nominated by Boko Haram to be their spokesman and representative during proposed negotiations with the Federal Government.”
“We wonder if he told them that he was the one that ordered and organised the violent injecting, crating and disgraceful kidnapping of a former Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria by the name of Alhaji Umaru Dikko from the streets of London 31 years ago when he was in power.”
“We shall state our views about General Buhari’s stage-managed show of shame at Chatham House at a later date; and, at that time, we shall go into far more detail.”
“For now, all we can say is that it is truly pitiful that a former Head of State of the Federal Republic of Nigeria believes that it is more important to win the hearts and minds of the British than it is to win the hearts and minds of the Nigerian people.”
“General Buhari can run to any foreign country in the world to say anything that he likes but at the end of the day the decision as to who will lead Nigeria as from May 29th this year will be determined by no one else but the Nigerian people. The game is on here and not in London.”
The APC had earlier accused Fani-Kayode of sponsoring protesters to disrupt Buhari’s Chatham House appearance.
