The All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused President Goodluck Jonathan’s aides of making statements capable of overheating the polity.

The APC also urged President Jonathan to call the offending aides to order.

This was contained in a statement released by APC National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed on Thursday, May 7, 2015.

It reads:

“While PDP may be deeply traumatized by its loss, hat should not be a reason for it to disrupt the nation’s peace by displaying crab mentality.”

“Professor Rufai Alkali [Special Adviser to the President on Political Affairs], that APC should talk less and plan more for the nation, and that APC was seeking to stampede the President out of office.”

“Professor Alkali does not know what he is saying. How does he expect us to plan when the PDP-led government has bluntly refused to cooperate with us in ensuring a successful transition?”

“As we write, the Transition Committee of the Federal Government has yet to hold a single meeting with our own Transition Committee, neither have they given us a line of handover note.”

“As a matter of fact, the Jonathan administration has said the handover notes will not be ready until the third week of May, meaning just a week before the handover.”

“What time then do we have to scrutinize the handover notes? How can we plan when we do not even know which projects they have, the ones completed and those outstanding? How can we plan when we do not even know how many barrels of oil are sold per day?”

Jonathan is set to hand over to President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari on Friday, May 29, 2015.
