Nigerians deserve healthy President, PDP, R-APC tells Amaechi
The opposition party observed Amaechi and others in govt “basically understand that the President is sick” and that Buhari didn’t possess the mental skill to steer the country.
The National Chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, who spoke to our correspondent, asked Nigerians to insist on the capacity of a president in 2019.
If Amaechi could say that the President would win on a sickbed, then he knows the health status of his principal. He knows that we have a sick leader who will not be able to give his maximum attention to the country.
We don’t need such a man at this critical time. We need a President who will be able to work 24 hours and read all memos, stand at meetings and debate with people and the parliament. We don’t need a figurehead president that the likes of Amaechi are praying for.
I know that people like him want a president they can deceive, who will not be on top of happenings in their ministries and in the country. They want a president who won’t watch television and who will not read newspapers. If that is what they want, they will meet their Waterloo in 2019.
Secondus introduced that the political war can be between what he called a desperate cabal and Nigerians who he noted:
will be desirous to get freed from the grip of the wicked.
The National Publicity Secretary of the R-APC, Kassim Afegbua, talked about Nigerians deserved improved than a President on a sickbed to deliver leadership in the twenty-first century.
Afegbua pointed out,
Unknown to Hon. Minister Amaechi, Nigerians do not want a man on sickbed, hence there is a general consensus that this present leadership should quit.
The country is terminally ill as a result of bad and ineffective leadership. Nigerians have been prevailing on the President to sit down and offer leadership, but he has been racking his brain.
In the meantime, the Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, has talked about he is nevertheless a member of the APC. The governor, who spoke via his Director-familiar, Media, Abubakar Shekara, pointed out this whereas reacting to claims with the aid of Amaechi.
Among others, Amaechi had mentioned Tambuwal would defect from the APC, including that Buhari would win Sokoto State without the governor in the APC.
Shekara said the governor would not take the challenge with the minister.
My principal will right now, not take issue with anybody on who will win in what state, particularly Sokoto.
Maybe, he would have reacted if the comment is centered on the candidate of another party and not the APC, which he is a bonafide member. How do you expect him to be taking issue with a fellow party member on the fortune of his party?
Shekara also seized the probability to denounce speculations surrounding Tambuwal’s deliberate defection from the APC.
Tambuwal is still a member of the APC, and if there would be need for him to defect to another party, he would make his stand known at the appropriate time.
