Onnoghen: PDP's suspension of campaign face-saving measure - ITREALMS

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has described as a face saving measure the decision by the PDP to pull the brakes on its electioneering campaign over Justice Walter Onnoghen's suspension, saying the PDP's campaign never gained traction in the first instance, reports ITREALMS.

Responding in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital, on Saturday, over the suspension of the PDP's campaign, the Minister said: ''Which Campaign? Their campaign was over a long time ago. There is nothing to suspend. We said it that their campaign had floundered. You can now see. What they are doing now is looking for a face-saving way out of a dead and buried campaign.''

He wondered why the PDP is crying more than the bereaved, and asked the opposition party whether Justice Onnoghen is one of its members.

“And in any event, let’s ask them this question: Is there something that they know that we don’t know? Is there something between them and the suspended CJN? Otherwise, we did not see why they should suspend their campaign anyway, but I can understand that their campaign was bound to end this way,” Alhaji Mohammed said.

He said while Nigerians have been trooping out in large numbers wherever the President’s campaign ship berths, the PDP supporters have been dwindling by the day.
