The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has exonerated itself of any involvement in the pro-President Muhammadu Buhari rally reportedly being planned to hold in the state capital, Awka.
Reacting to the rumour that APGA, the ruling party in the state, is behind the rally which has raised tension in the state, the State Secretary of APGA, Hon. Tony Ifeanya, described those linking the party to the rally as mischief makers.
He said on Friday: “I have no idea of any such rally and I know my party is not involved.
This thing is the same kind of thing that caused the friction between my Governor and Rochas Okorocha; it’s the same thing, they are at it again. How can APGA be joining pro-Buhari rally in Anambra State; for what? Which Buhari if I may ask? Buhari that is in sick bed in London or the Acting President Osibanjo? Who?
“As far as I know, I am not wishing him death; I want him to recover and come back but from his doctors and people advising him, he is no longer even fit to continue. So which pro-Buhari are we talking about when from all indications he has reached the end of the road as far as governance is concerned?
“I am not wishing him death but when you are incapable of performing your duties you step aside and enjoy your life as an old man; he has everything.
“So my party cannot be a party to support or organise pro-Buhari anything. So is that pro-hunger or pro-starvation or power failure, which one are we supporting? You want all of us to die, is it because Nigerians have not started picking from the dustbin; you don’t know that things are hard and it is caused by this government?
“Anybody that is asking this government to continue is a sadist who should be tried and jailed for wishing Nigerians bad.
“Anybody that is conducting a pro-Buhari rally is wishing Nigerians bad because what he has given Nigerians so far has been the worst since the inception of Nigeria.”
