The whole world is talking about the deadly massacre which took place in Baga, Borno state, where some estimates, including that of Amnesty International put the number of deaths at over 2000 people. Still Aso Rock has been silent on the deaths. Pres. Goodluck Jonathan has not uttered a word on the issue.
The All Progressive Congress Presidential Campaign has now charged Pres. Jonathan to say something to Nigerians over the tragedy.
In a statement from the Directorate of Media and Publicity of the APC presidential campaign on Saturday, January 10, the opposition said that the PDP government is unnecessarily concerned about the academic certificate of its presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari, when it has more important national issues to address.
“This government should not go on being insensitive. They have to be accountable to Nigerians. The issue of certificate of General Buhari is a non-issue as everyone knows that Buhari is a product of Daura Primary School, Katsina Provisional Secondary School (now Government College, Katsina) and the Nigerian Military Training College. This is in addition to several other courses he attended at home and abroad.”
Furthermore, the statement said: “While the PDP government has failed in its duty and responsibilities to the citizens and the nation, they have intensified effort to pull wool over the eyes of Nigerians.”
“Unfortunately, PDP has become a political party that is so fixated with keeping an incompetent government in power and is lustfully engaged in pursuing a non-issue about an individual’s academic qualifications.”
