Senate spokesman says 2023 elections is between APC, PDP

The Chairman of the Senate Committee of Media and Public Affairs, Senator Ajibola Basiru, on Wednesday, ruled out any third political force, noting that the 2023 elections will be a contest between the ruling All Progressives Congress and the leading opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party.

The Senator representing Osun Central Senatorial District in the 9th National Assembly spoke on Channels Television’s ‘Politics Today’ current affairs programme monitored by The PUNCH.

Specifically, Basiru said the Rescue Nigeria Project unveiled on Tuesday by ex-Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Attahiru Jega; foremost Nigerian Professor of Political Economy, Pat Utomi, alongside several politicians, would fail.

According to him, an “assemblage of failed politicians” cannot say they want to rescue Nigerians or give a third force to the country in 2023.

“The so-called Special Rescue Project is a special purpose vehicle which is bound to fail and it would fail definitely,” he stated.

Continuing, Basiru said, “As far as I am concerned, you can mark today’s date, nothing serious would come out of the so-called effort that is put in place.”

“In this country, setting up political parties have become business and for some people, they set up political parties to have opportunities of speaking on national television, some opportunities to also relate with other politicians and get something or the other but they are not really serious politicians.

“As far as I am concerned today, if electoral contest is anything to go about today, you can only mention political parties like APC, PDP, APGA –may be in a particular state, and some splinter parties.

“The truth is that the 2023 election is going to be about a choice between the APC, my political party and the party of President Muhammadu Buhari, and the PDP. The other people, the third force, there was a time some people even named their own political party, Mega Political Party, at the end of the day, Mega Political Party never had a councillor not to talk of a chairman.

“I want to say with all sense of responsibility that it is wrong to say that the APC should be thrown away. My party, the APC has brought quantum development in all aspects,” the Senator stated.

“We are the best that has ever happened to the country since 1999 and we are going to continue to provide leadership to the country beyond 2023. I am very confident about that,” he stated.

But reacting on the television programme, Yunusa Tanko, a member of the National Consultative Front, which floated the Rescue Nigeria Project, lambasted the Senator for his “grandstanding”.

Tanko insisted that his group would provide better alternatives for Nigerians who are tired of the failure of the ruling APC.

If you are not sponsoring Boko Haram then expose sponsors – PDP dares Buhari

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has condemned the refusal of the Buhari Presidency to expose the names of sponsors Boko Haram and other terror groups in Nigeria.

The opposition said Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) government are giving the impression of “official cover for terrorists and bandits pillaging the nation”.

In a statement on Tuesday, PDP spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan lambasted the government for saying it would not expose the identity of terror masterminds.

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) had revealed the names of six Nigerians funding Boko Haram in a list of more than 50 individuals and entities.

“The decision of the APC-led government to cover the identities of sponsors of mindless mass killings, maiming, rapping, kidnapping of our compatriots as well as the endless violent marauding of our communities under the APC watch, validates our stand that such individuals have connections with the APC.

“This unpatriotic stance by the Buhari Presidency raises serious national anxieties of high-level complicity in the administration and further explains the reported compromising of our security system in the escalated killings and acts of terrorism in our country in the last six years under the APC.

“Nigerians can see why the APC-led administration has failed to take decisive steps to tackle terrorism, why it prefers to negotiate with terrorists and even makes case for them, instead apprehending and prosecuting them, as witnessed in the beheading of rice farmers in Borno state.

“The PDP had always alerted of a connection between the APC and terrorists ravaging various parts of our nation and how the APC, as a party, had always failed to forcefully condemn acts of terrorism in our country.

“Nigerians can recall how the APC vehemently defended and still habours the Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, a self-confessed terrorism apologist, despite national outcry and demand for his sack.”

The PDP added that the APC has failed to account for bandits, thugs and hoodlums imported from neighboring countries to unleash violence on Nigerians and muscle the 2019 elections.

The party said if the APC and its administration have nothing to cover, they should publish the names of terror backers “instead of this vexatious desperation to provide official cover for them”.
