Aisha Campaign Team Accuses Saraki, Atiku Of Inciting Nigerians

The 2019 Presidential Election Campaign Team of wife of the president, Hajiya Aisha Buhari, has accused PDP presidential candidate and former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, and Senate President Bukola Saraki of inciting Nigerians.

The director, Media and Strategic Communication Committee of the Women and Youth Presidential Campaign Team, Hon. Abdulmumini Jibrin, at the inaugural media conference of the committee, also unveiled the ‘Operation Lashe Akwatuna’, meaning ‘Operation Sweep the Units’, as a voter mobilisation and awareness project of the directorate.

He condemned what he described as the campaign of misinformation launched against President Buhari and candidate of the APC by prominent members of the opposition parties, especially PDP.

According to him, Saraki who doubled as the Director General of the PDP campaign, had in an “uninspiring interview” attempted to cast aspersion on the ‘president’s government’ forgetting he was indeed part of the government.

“The biggest threat to the stability of this country is the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and the Director-General of Atiku Campaign, Bukola Saraki, who are taking Nigerians for granted by mooting the idea to incite the North not to support power transfer to the southern part of the country after President Muhammadu Buhari completes his second term in a clear attempt to shortchange the southern part of Nigeria,” Rep. Jibrin said.

“No wonder, the PDP presidential candidate has refused to commit to returning power to the southern part of the country after 2023. This is even after concerted pressure by many of their stakeholders. This is already heating up our polity with combined negative consequences on our economy, security and general development.

“So, if we are talking about the politicians who are threatening the foundation of the peace and security of our country, the cap fits Saraki and Atiku,” he said.

Rep. Jibrin commended Mrs. Aisha Buhari for the revolution she brought into the political arena by recognizing the role of women and youth in political campaigns and also factoring them into the presidential campaign.

He said ‘Operation Lashe Akwatuna’ would cover all segments of voters in a unit which comprised of supporters, undecided voters and opposition voters, and also carry its campaign to the doorsteps of these three segments in polling units across the country on the same day and at the same time.

He said the committee would run a competition calling for Nigerians from various works of life to submit art pieces in various formats, graphic designs, videos, drawings and paintings depicting an achievement of the President Buhari administration that had impacted their lives positively using the hashtag #APCWAYCONTEST.
