The Action Congress of Nigeria, Kogi State Chapter has described yesterdays call by the Kogi State Governor for the flag off of 2015 campaigns for President Jonathan as a diversionary tactics coming in the wake of the expressed angst of the citizenry and the Kogi PDP elders against the unconscionable show of profligacy,unwholesome political practices, arrested development, deepening poverty, primitive state of infrastructure –all due largely to chronic mis-governance, mind boggling corruption and illegalities by his ten month old administration.
The party in a statement issued in Abuja by its Chairman, Haddy Ametuo on Tuesday said ” It is a shame that,instead of giving an honest account of his almost one year in office, Mr. Wada has embarked on a cheap and unsolicited campaign for President Jonathan for 2015. It is a pity that this political liability who has broken the previous records for incompetence and corruption under former Governor Ibrahim Idris and has set new ones is now the Chief Campainer for Goodluck Jonathan.
Haddy said that, Wada’s failure in the last ten months is so monumental that several new words have been introduced into Kogi’s political lexicon just to qualify his lack of success at the things that really matter. “As such, We refuse to be distracted by this musician-cum-governor’s new track on Jonathan 2015 Distraction Album – a song that is capable of making even the devil clap in admiration!”
“Mr. President, you have to disown this man just as your party did, before he comes up with another conspiracy theory again, nobody hates him,We only hate the manner he took over as ‘Governor’ on January 30 after the Vice-President of Nigeria directed the Inspector General of Police to escort him to Government House Lokoja, we just dislike failure and its progenitors. He should attend to the business of governance in the coming year,Mr President should curb Wada’s addiction for dipping hands into the state account without remorse”
But Wada who spoke through one of his aides told Newsdiaryonline.com that the opposition cannot accuse him of corruption.
