Buhari’s broadcast: PDP kicks, says Atiku also deserves ‘gratis exposure’




Nigeria’s main opposition peoples Democratic Party,PDP has faulted the broadcast  by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Reacting to the broadcast, Chief Akin Osuntokun, Campaign spokesman,PDP Presidential Campaign said in a statement that Buhari’s broadcast was partisan. He alleged that  “All the broadcast stations that were deceitfully made to believe they were hooking up to a non partisan address should immediately proceed to charge the APC Presidential candidate for the airtime they expended.

Therefore, Campaign spokesman,PDP Presidential Campaign  demanded that in the alternative a similar exposure be granted to Atiku Abubakar, the PDP Presidential candidate ahead of the polls.

Osuntokun’s  response to Buhari’s speech reads thus in part: “Typical Buhari and APC. When the Nigerian public was advised to tune in to a national broadcast by the President, the country was expecting a Presidential broadcast not a misuse of the platform for shopworn campaign address by the Presidential candidate of the APC.

“But then what do you expect from a President who appears to have lost all sense of political propriety.

“Remember, he saw nothing wrong in inviting foreign nationals to invade the country and help mobilize against his fellow nationals.

“All the broadcast stations that were deceitfully made to believe they were hooking up to a non partisan address should immediately proceed to charge the APC Presidential candidate for the airtime they expended.

“In the alternative we are demanding a commensurate gratis exposure for our candidate, President in waiting Atiku Abubakar.”
