The Peoples Democratic Party and the All Progressives Congress (APC) have started their presidential campaigns and the PDP are questioning the democratic credentials of the APC’s presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari.

APC says nobody has the kind of democratic credentials like General Buhari, insisting that he had subjected himself to democratic principles.

Meanwhile, the Director of Media and Publicity of the President’s campaign team, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has vowed to expose the atrocities committed by Buhari when he was in power.

Speaking at a press conference in Abuja on Wednesday, he said: “It is our dull intention to expose Gen. Muhammadu Buhari for what he really is, what he stands for and the great danger that his candidacy portends for the unity of the Nigerian state and the peace and well-being of the Nigerian people.

“We believe that it is a struggle between light and darkness. We believe that Gen. Buhari represents the darkness and that President Jonathan represents the light.

“We believe that Gen. Buhari represents a return to an ugly past which is best forgotten, while President Jonathan represents our hope for a greater and better future.

“We believe that the APC, on which platform Gen. Buhari is contesting the presidential election, represents everything that is unholy and unwholesome in our society and that the Peoples Democratic Party represents all that is decent and good.

“We believe that the much-vaunted ”change” campaign of Gen. Buhari represents nothing but a change from good to evil. If you want a positive change, you cannot expect to get it from a man like Gen. Buhari whose democratic credentials are questionable and whose record in public office is shameful and disastrous.

“Most people do not remember the atrocities that he committed when he was in power and it is our intention to document them and remind the Nigerian people about them.

“Most people have chosen to ignore the number of things that Gen. Buhari has said and the number of things that he has done over the last few months and years that have brought carnage, division and strife in our society and that prove that he is not the sort of person that can be trusted with power.

“It is our intention to bring those things to the attention of the Nigerian people so that they can make an informed choice.

“We do not believe that Nigeria ought to be run by a man that is not capable of tolerating dissent or by a political party like the APC that has no sense of remorse, restraint or decency and that is not capable of accepting a plurality of views.”
