The All Progressives Congress (APC) said the comment credited to information minister Labaran Maku that the federal government was spending significantly on security in three of its controlled states was a categorical declaration of the office of the president vacant by the minister.
According to APC, by that statement Maku has proved that President Goodluck Jonathan is only the leader of the PDP and not actually a President of and Commander-in-Chief of Nigeria.
In a statement issued on Friday in Lagos by its national publicity, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the APC described Maku’s comment as “a tragic and insensitive statement from an honourable minister of the Federal Republic about innocent children, some of whom are minors with neither political leaning”.
“The campaign to rescue the abducted girls has now been clearly polarized and politicized by the federal government. So sad, so unfortunate, so callous, so mean, so irresponsible, so brazen, so not parental, so not governmental,” APC declares.
APC said at this juncture, it is clear that PDP leadership is a disaster in Nigeria.
