Attack On Jonathan, APC Looking For An Excuse For Their Impending Failure- Prof Akali

The Special Adviser to the President on Political Affairs,
Prof. Rufai Ahmed Alkali has chided the All Progressives Congress, APC,  over its recent utterances urging the party
to talk less and plan more as the nation moves towards the 29th May inauguration
Reacting to the alarm raised by the APC that President
Jonathan is running the economy aground before handing over, Professor
Alkali  said “the allegation is immature,
reckless and out of tune with the President’s desire and patriotic commitment
to a peaceful transfer of power”.

“Nigerians will recall that shortly after the results of the
Presidential elections were announced, President Goodluck Jonathan inaugurated
a high powered transition committee to plan and organize a hitch free
transition programme for the inauguration of the incoming administration.
Surprisingly, it took the APC more than three weeks to wake
up to its responsibility to constitute its own transition committee. How then
can they turn round to accuse the government of frustrating the transition
“Since the setting up of the committee, the President and
the entire machinery of the Federal Government have been put on the transition
mode and all government officers have been giving maximum cooperation to the
incoming transition committee”he noted.
He noted that “by the Constitution of the Federal Republic
of Nigeria, President Jonathan remains in office up to the 29th of May 2015
when he formally hands over to the incoming President” The machinery of
government cannot be put on hold or frozen because the country is in
transition,” he said.
On  the allegations
that government is running the economy aground, Prof. Alkali reminded APC that
“governance is a serious business. He further added that with the sudden and
unexpected concession of victory to them, it appears that the APC is beginning
to face the full reality of managing the great challenges of a complex nation.
“Their recent, frequent and unnecessary attacks on the
President clearly shows that they are losing their nerves and are beginning to
lay foundation to justify their failures in the near future and we want to
remind them that Nigerians are not ready to accept any excuses for their
failure. They promised to bring change so they must bring positive change to
the well being of Nigerians and urgently too,” he said.
