It can be recalled that the First Lady had in her recent campaign in Calabar reportedly asked PDP supporters to stone APC supporters chanting the “change” slogan of the party and described Buhari as a man without brain at another campaign in Kogi State.
In a statement in Lagos yesterday, a member of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Mr. Oladipo Johnson, said such comments were in bad taste and capable of creating violence and ethnic division among the people ahead of the elections.
He expressed concern that instead of the First Lady to use her position to campaign on the issues in the elections, she had by her comments preached violence and resorted to character assassination.
He said: “It was simply in bad taste and unacceptable. The First Lady’s hate campaign must be condemned to let the world know how desperate the PDP and its affiliates have become in their futile attempts to paint the opposition black and hold on to power. But it’s all a charade and obviously the Nigerian people can see through such deceit and have already made up their minds for an inevitable change come March 28.”
