Lagos – The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says the All Progressive Congress (APC) presidential candidate Muhammud Buhari lacks oratory skills, saying he has used his campaign speeches for nothing but political demagoguery according to naij.com.
Addressing a press conference, PDP's campaign organisation spokesperson, Femi Fani-Kayode, alleged that Buhari had spoken for only 57 minutes during his campaign rallies across the country.
Kayode said Buhari could not "brilliantly articulate and showcase his sterling achievement" the same way as President Goodluck Jonathan.
Fani-Kayode has been very critical of Buhari, attacking the him over his educational certificate, his military regime, religious background and now his public speaking abilities, the report said.
Jonathan faces Buhari in the 14 February polls.
The election has been described by analysts as one of the fiercest in many years.
