The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) of being responsible for the sacrilege picture of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, PDP presidential candidate, into the image of Jesus Christ. The PDP 2023 presidential candidate, accordingly, exonerated himself from the sacrilegious image of Jesus being used by his opponents to discredit him and his campaign organization.
Atiku, in a statement, described the superimposition of his picture onto the image of Jesus as “a mischievous and desperate effort by his APC opponents to use religion for political purposes in order to pitch him against Christians and spread discord between Muslims and Christians.”
He noted that his opponents are behaving like a drowning person who would clutch at anything in a sinking situation, adding however that he was not surprised they could go to this extent as it is characteristic of them to sow divisions amongst our diverse people.
Atiku in the statement declared: “APC are exhausted because they have squandered their goodwill and even their campaign of lies and propaganda are not working for them, and Nigerians have seen the light enough not to be fooled anymore by such desperate last ditch tactic of a soldier about to kiss the dust.
“I’m not your enemy; your enemy is your own disastrous record in terms of security, education, job creation, unemployment, and unity. Your own performance record is your own greatest undoing. The 2023 election is a confidence vote on APC. Nigerians are wiser; using religion to divide the people can’t work. Suffering and hardship unite and galvanise people against failure and incompetence.”
He urged them to pray for forgiveness before God for the sacrilege that they have committed and also to Nigerians to forgive them for the sorry pass they have put the country to.
