Abuja - The All Progressives Congress’ biggest rival ahead of the general elections criticized the opposition party’s holding of an event in London in the United Kingdom, saying the occasion would not change the party’s fortunes in the poll.

“The stage was targeted to secure a desperately needed endorsement of the international community but the world is hardly fooled by theatrics of desperation,” the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) said in a statement by spokesperson, Olisa Metuh, following the meeting APC presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, held at the Chatham House

PDP added that the stage might have “lifted the badly deflated morale” of the members of APC but the “vanishing performance” was incapable of redeeming the “forlorn fortune” in the bad sale of the APC flag bearer is in the March 28 presidential election.

The party urged Buhari to channel his message and energies home, meet Nigerians who were “choking up” with questions on his capacity to lead.

“He may realize ultimately too, that politics in this instance is local and shall be decided locally. The ultimate endorsement lies with the people of Nigeria,” the PDP said.

Buhari’s overseas visit had been scrutinized from the onset with some ruling party officials claiming he was in the United Kingdom for a medical visit, fuelling speculation about his fitness.

Buhari and PDP leader, Goodluck Jonathan are the frontrunners in the presidential election.
