In Nigeria, the ruling Party, All Progressives Congress, APC, has come under fire for asking the outgoing United States Incumbent President, Donald Trump, to emulate President Muhammadu Buhari.
A chieftain of the New Nigerian Peoples Party, NNPP, Olusegun Bamgbose, also noted that it was ridiculous and hypocritical of All Progressive Congress to condemn the breach of the Capitol in the USA recently.
The Incumbent President, Donald Trump, is being accused of inciting the Capitol’s deadly attack on Wednesday. It was said to be a part of his move to stop Joe Biden’s certification, the President-elect by the Congress.
The Nigerian ruling party, All Progressive Congress, in its reaction, had appealed to Donald Trump to emulate President Muhammadu Buhari, who they claimed is a democrat.
Olusegun Bamgbose, in his reaction during a chat with DAILY POST on Monday, wondered how on earth All Progressive Congress can have the audacity to ask Donald Trump to emulate Muhammadu Buhari.
“What is APC taking Nigeria for? During the build-up to the 2015 elections, Buhari was quoted to have threatened that monkey and baboon will be soaked in blood. Could that be the person Trump should emulate? It’s really funny.
“Let’s set the matter straight; President Buhari is yet to showcase his democratic credentials. He cannot be seen as a true democrat.
“Trump’s Government never refuted that people lost their lives at the riot at the Capitol. Could that be the same with the Lekki Toll Gate killings? Up to date, the Nigerian Government has denied the shootings by the military.
“APC should stop fooling themselves by comparing Trump with Buhari. The difference is very clear. APC equally mentioned integrity and strong institutions to drive home their point for Trump to emulate Buhari; the truth, however, is that APC has no integrity.
“They have weakened the institutions. The party is jaundiced. Nigeria will be worse off if APC wins again in 2023. APC has actually brought bad luck to Nigeria.
“Nigerians must do away with APC come 2023, or else Nigeria should forget about dividends of democracy. One seriously doubts whether APC has what it takes to move the nation forward. Nigerians should wake up and plan the exit of APC come 2023. The party has outlived its usefulness,” he said.
