Buhari: APC playing politics of denial 'Obanikoro

Published by Tribune on Sun, 01 Feb 2015

Immediate past Minister of State for Defence, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro, has chided the All Progressives Congress (APC) for denying that their presidential flagbearer was stoned in Lagos.Obanikoro also challenged the party who questioned his recent nomination as minister, saying that he is absolutely qualified.In a statement signed by Obanikoro, he stated that 'It is not surprising to see the APC quickly swinging into action denying the incident that occurred where their presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd), was stoned at Idumagbo area of Isale-Eko, Lagos, by an irate mob while making his way to the APC presidential rally in Lagos.'I admire Mr Lai Mohammed's devotion to his role as the mouthpiece of a dysfunctional and sinking political party heading towards extinction. His loyalty to his oppressors is touching. That he chose to call into question my second ministerial nomination by overlooking my academic credentials and record of service to Lagos and Nigeria as the most experienced politician produced by Lagos State in contemporary democratic history, simply lends credence to his party's protracted challenge with academic qualifications from their national leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, to their presidential candidate.''Finally, whether the APC chooses to admit the stony welcome Buhari received in Lagos or not, our message and position on peace remains consistent. We must ensure on all sides that as the political campaigns gear up for the final weeks ahead, all electioneering activities are violence free.
