Shettima suffering from amnesia – PDP



By Ismail Auwal

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential campaign organisation has said that former governor of Borno,Kashim Shettima, is suffering from amnesia.

Dele Momodu, Director of Strategic Communication of the PDP presidential campaign, while reacting to a recent comment made by Shettima, who is the vice-presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) said he is pointing fingers “at the specks in another man’s eyes while studiously ignoring the giant logs in his own eyes”.

“We have watched in utter incredulity and amazement the boldfaced speech made yesterday by the APC Vice Presidential candidate, Alhaji Kashim Shettima, at an event in Lagos,

“He alleged gleefully that the PDP Presidential candidate, H.E Atiku Abubakar (GCON) cannot unite Nigeria when ‘he has not united his own political party’.

“It is our belief that Alhaji Shettima, in a moment of deliberate amnesia, must have tried to point fingers at the specks in another man’s eyes while studiously ignoring the giant logs in his own eyes,” Momodu said.

The Director claimed that the APC is in total disarray with prominent members of his party openly apologizing to Nigerians for the unmitigated disaster it has foisted on Nigeria since 2015.

According to him this is one of the reasons APC members have been migrating in droves to PDP.

“It took almost forever for APC to achieve the simple task of constituting its Presidential Campaign Council, due to the total lack of unity in their party. It is very obvious that APC has become completely rudderless and many self-respecting members are jumping ship and being recovered by PDP.

“How can these APC candidates ever unite Nigerians when they’ve shown open disdain for the democratic and voting rights of certain ethnic groups within their domains?”

While speaking on Tuesday in Lagos, Shettima linked Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the PDP, to Raila Odinga, former Kenyan prime minister, who has contested to be president multiple times but hasn’t succeded

The former governor of Borno also said Abubakar lacks the capacity to lead Nigeria because he has not been able to unite the PDP.
