The APC Presidential Campaign Organisation (APCPCO) is opposed to the plot

by the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to postpone next month's

general elections as is currently being canvassed by the National Security

Adviser, Colonel Sambo Dasuki (retired).
In a statement signed Thursday in Abuja by its Director of Media and

Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, the APC Campaign said such a proposal as

being contemplated is ill-advised.
“We smelt the plot that this unpopular PDP Federal Government would do

anything to stay put in power, elongation of term had always been on the

President's agenda; no wonder he and his party want the election delayed

or cancelled outright to effect and extension of their lackluster

administration,” Shehu said.
“Gone were the days when a few persons can hold the destiny of our dear

nation to ransom. In fact, Nigerians would have called for an early

election than February, if our political system is parliamentary. For

Jonathan's government is worse than a rotten egg. It's smelly, full of

sleaze, neck deep in corruption and uncaring. Two vital organs of

government have downed tools for nearly two months – the health and

judicial sectors and he does not give a damn!
“The nation's currency (naira) is daily plummeting in value, the oil

sector in virtual comatose, the economy runs on deficit, unemployment

skyrocketing, insecurity on the loose, decaying infrastructure and a loss

of sound national image. Nigerians have never had it so bad. Hence, any

delay or postponement of the elections amounts to testing the patience of

the people. We are all tired of a corrupt government, one full of

ineptitude, incompetence and lack of ideas. Nobody can scuttle our

hard-earned democracy in Nigeria,” he said.
