All Progressives Congress (APC) has alerted international community about moves being made by agents of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to embarrass its Presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari when he begins to speak tomorrow at Chatham House in London.
General Buhari is scheduled to speak at 10 a.m. local time on the subject, “Prospects for Democratic Consolidation in Africa: Nigeria’s Transition.”
A statement from the Director of media and publicity for the APC Presidential Campaign Organisation, Garba Shehu today said that Femi Fani-Kayode, the spokesman of the Goodluck Jonathan presidential campaign organizing and other members of PDP members have organized some people in London to stage a protest against Buhari tomorrow when he appears for his Chatham House engagement.
The mission of the organizers of the protest, Garba Shehu said, is to create the impression that Nigerians are happy with President Goodluck Jonathan, and to indicate that Buhari is not welcome to rule Nigeria before the international community.
The former Minister of Aviation, who was until recently a member of the APC, has made many disparaging remarks about General Buhari since he emerged President Jonathan’s principal spokesman. [myad]
