Call For Postponement Of Next Month's Election Unacceptable..Adamu Mu'azu

The National Chairman of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu has described the call for the postponement of next month’s general election as absolute nonsense.
He also said that PDP is ready for the February 14 presidential and National Assembly polls and the February 28 governorship and state assembly elections.
Reacting to calls for the postponement of the general election, Mu’azu through his Chief Press Secretary, Tony Amadi, said: "It is absolute nonsense to suggest that the Peoples Democratic Party is not ready for the 2015 elections. The APC is at it again. The PDP looks at election campaigns as a marathon race and runs like the Kenyans and the Ethiopians in measured steps, slow, steady and consistently. We are only just in the half way mark of a long distance race and the APC thinks that they have already won simply because they think they are on pole position.
"The aggression with which they (APC) are pursuing this election is fine, but they must realise that pulling crowds is one thing, winning the election is quite a different kettle of fish. Their mountain of propaganda is being steadily dismantled by the ruling party since the campaign began because our message of truth is now getting through and opinions are being reversed at a rate they will never understand especially with the desperation to win by all means.”
The quest for a postponement of the election was first mooted last week by the National Security Adviser (NSA), Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd). Although Dasuki had argued that the insecurity and non-readiness of some of the electoral materials like the permanent voters’ card (PVCs) were the basis of his suggestion, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), through its Chairman, Prof. Attahiru Jega, had foreclosed any plan to postpone the polls, insisting that he is ready for the election.
Mu’azu said signals from the North-central zone of the country showed that PDP would get massive votes from the Middle Belt.
According to Mu’azu, "The North-west zone has been a reassurance that PDP is on course for a fourth consecutive election victory not only because of the performance of our President Jonathan which are glaring for all to see, but also because the acceptability of the major opposition candidate is fraught with danger.
"The northern elite who direct the destination of votes don’t want a Buhari administration now or never. We accept his massive popularity among people who have no intention of voting but who adore his cult status and following.
"Therefore PDP, when the polls open on February 14th will not only be on pole position but victory is guaranteed because our marathon speed would have increased to the level we need to win the race. Think about this: we set up 12 universities across the country, nine of which are in the North and the opposition says they are glorified secondary schools. If their candidate had set up even a glorified primary school in 1985, imagine what would have become the lot of the Almajiris of those days who would have changed Nigeria today. But now they are Boko Haram, harassing all of us and the APC have the magic wand to stop their carnage and butchering of innocent souls immediately they get power. How will they do it?"
