All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, yesterday dismissed PDP’s denial of the front page death wish advertisement by Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose, insisting on independent investigation.

Buhari dismissed the rebuttal by President Goodluck Jonathan’s Campaign spokesperson, Femi Fani-Kayode, as “merely a case of a master disassociating himself from the errand boy after the message had backfired.”

Speaking through his campaign media and publicity director, Garba Shehu, the APC flag bearer said the PDP response is “too casual and off-handed to impress anyone. It doesn’t sound convincing. The PDP needs to take this issue more seriously to underscore its commitment to the sustenance of Nigeria’s democracy and the non-violence pact entered into by the party and its presidential candidate.”

The Buhari campaign spokesperson said “It is very irresponsible for the PDP to want to distance itself from the death threat to General Buhari, made by not only a sitting governor of the PDP but also a high ranking member of the PDP Presidential Campaign Committee,” he said.

He added that “just in case the PDP had forgotten, what was Fani-Kayode thinking in his mind when he challenged General Buhari to make a jog round a field? Was it to put him through a body fitness workout or to plant a sniper somewhere around the field?”
