Jonathan Ready For Buhari, Election- PDP



The Peoples Democratic Party has said President Goodluck Jonathan is ready to face Maj.Gen. Muhammadu Buhari(retd.) on March 28 for the Presidential election.
While Jonathan is the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Buhari is the candidate of the main opposition party, the All Progressives Congress.
The APC has alleged that both Jonathan and his party were planning to scuttle the elections as they were alleged not to be ready.
The opposition party claimed that both the President and the PDP were afraid that they would be defeated during the election.
Responding to this, the Director of Media and Publicity of the PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, said that it would be foolhardy of anyone to say that President Jonathan was not ready for elections.
He also debunked the claim that the ruling party and the president were sponsoring some lesser political parties to shift the elections, especially in the North-East.
Fani-Kayode said, “How can anyone say we are not ready for the elections?
“President Jonathan is ready to challenge General Buhari anyway because he’s going to defeat him. We were ready for the last election and we are also ready for this one.
“We have people coming to this office every day to strategise. Leaders of the party from the national chairman to other members of the National Working Committee are there?”
Fani-Kayode also berated former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, and the spokesperson of the APC, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, who he said were accusing him of many crimes, including bad health.
He said, It is not Femi Fani-Kayode but rather Bola Tinubu that slurs when he speaks. It is not Femi Fani-Kayode but Bola Tinubu that has to take 20 pills before he can speak.
“It is not Femi Fani-Kayode but Bola Tinubu that his hands shakes when he tries to eat and lifts a fork and knife. it is not me, It is not Femi Fani-Kayode that his breath is so bad, it is so bad enough to knock off the beard. It is not Femi Fani-Kayode. So, if anybody is to talk about ill health. They should talk about themselves and not about me.
“My name is Femi Fani-Kayode, and nobody can Kill me before my time. Nobody can cut me short and I habour no fear of violence and I do not take threats lightly. Neither do I fear for my life.
“Because I have never shed blood and I do not believe in violence, the angel of the Lord will strike that person dead before they point a gun at me in Jesus Name.”
Meanwhile, the party has expressed gratitude to Nigerians for their renewed solidarity and overwhelming support for President Jonathan.
The party said its National Chairman, Ahmadu Adamu Mu’azu, has directed all PDP candidates as well as would-be government appointees under the party to prepare to go the extra mile to make huge sacrifices after victory.
