The All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) has said it is not surprised about “the imaginary attack” on President Muhammadu Buhari.
In a statement late on Monday by Bayo Onanuga, its Director of Media and Publicity, sent to POLITICS NIGERIA, the APC PCC said the attack in Kano was “invented”.
“Nigerians should disregard this fake news from a party that has lost touch with reality and suffering the agony of violating its own rules on power rotation.
“Just as it has been masterminding fake news against the APC presidential candidate and trying vainly to cause disharmony in the APC family, we believe the party may have planned to embarrass President Buhari in Kano and then put the blame on host Governor Abdullahi Ganduje and Bola Tinubu.
“This is because the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has of recent morphed from being a Buhari virulent critic to strangely becoming a Buhari spokesperson!
“The last time it issued a self-serving misinterpretation of Asíwájú’s (Tinubu) statement in Abeokuta as an attack on President Buhari,” the statement by Onanuga partly reads.
