Former Special Assistant to President Goodluck Jonathan on New Media, Reno Omokri, said on Sunday that the defection of the Vice President Atiku Abubakar from the ruling All Progressives Congress(APC) has left the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari jittery.
Omokri, in a statement on Sunday, declared that the amount of negative energy being channeled at discrediting Atiku’s defection from the ruling party was shocking.
He added that the ruling party was treating Atiku as if he had
committed an unpardonable sin.
He said that while a party vehicle is important, the destination is even more important.
“A party is a vehicle that takes you from point A to point B. If you are in a vehicle that breaks down along the way, you naturally will not stay stuck at that same place. You either fix the vehicle or you get into another vehicle. The vehicle is important, but it is the destination that is the whole point,” he said.
To buttress his claims of jitters in the Presidency, Omokri made the flowing assertions: “On the same day that Atiku Abubakar resigned from the APC, President Buhari sets up a committee to increase the national minimum wage. This is a classic knee jerk reaction and an indication that the President is jittery over his impending 2019 defeat and wants to bribe Nigerians with a salary increase.
“But be that as it may, the bottom line is that President Buhari has contested the Presidency four times and each time under a different party meanwhile Atiku has only contested the Presidency once (in 2007). So before the APC attack Atiku, they should buy a mirror and give it to President Buhari.”
He declared that Atiku never really left the PDP at any time on his own volition adding that he was pushed out in 2006 after fighting the unconstitutional Third Term Agenda.
He said the former Vice President also left the PDP in 2013 after it became factionalised
Omokri said: “If switching parties is a crime, then everyone in the APC is guilty of that crime, from President Buhari, who has been in and out of three parties himself to ALL the members of the NEC of the APC.
“In Nigeria, other than the PDP, other parties are not real political parties in the true sense of the word. They are instead vehicles cobbled together for the purpose of seizing political power.”
