Nigeria stampede: Several dead at Buhari rally

Saturday's election will see Buhari stand for a second four-year term against former vice-president Atiku Abubakar in what is expected to be a close race.

Former US president, Bill Clinton will no longer travel to Nigeria to attend the signing of a peace accord between President Muhammadu Buhari and Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), The Cable reports.

"The APC said it will create jobs for us, today there is massive unemployment".

Recall that the APC Ogun rally was disrupted by thugs yesterday, with Nigerians pelting the President and other members of the APC with shoes, slippers and bottled water. These are people that can not be trusted.

The PDP therefore urges Buhari and the APC to read the handwriting on the wall and get ready to accept his inevitable defeat so that Nigerians can have a breath of fresh air under the leadership of Atiku, whose campaign has continued to receive rousing reception.

In a response to a statement by the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, the main opposition party noted that "the Buhari Presidency's fresh attempt to use its chief propagandist, the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, to lay further false allegations on the PDP has failed, because Nigerians already know those plotting to scuttle the elections by inciting violence and issuing death threats against others".

Mr Buhari, while concluding his remarks in Hausa at a campaign rally in Gusau, Zamfara State on Sunday, said he was happy that the nation had two rainy seasons that enabled farmers to make good yield. When I say I am going to do something, I will do it.

"Nigerians are all aware that the PDP is ready and working hard for this election".

Typical of the PDP and Atiku's Campaign team, they have continued in their favourite pastime of peddling falsehood, scaremongering and misinformation.

"Since Buhari came in, businesses in Lagos have shut down, the economy and security have collapsed. He will open the closed businesses and create jobs and Lagos will become the economic capital of West Africa", Secondus said.

But a statement by Clinton's spokesman Angel Ureña regretted the former President's visit might be politicised in a way that is not in line with the goals of the committee.
