Mr Segun Showunmi, Spokesman of the Atiku Presidential Campaign Organisation, has reacted to the newly released song track by the All Progressives Congress (APC), saying that the 2019 elections should be issue based, devoid of slandering and name calling.

He reacted on Monday through a statement he signed and made available to journalists in Abuja.

The statement reads in part: “We need to restate as directed by His Excellency Atiku Abubakar, Presidential Candidate of The PDP that the 2019 election should be issue based, devoid of slandering and name calling.

“We hold the view that unguarded narrative hurts the country and further divides us as a people.

“Some of the consequences of previous mismanaged campaign efforts is perhaps the reason why there is little or no internal cohesion with its attendant security challenges.

“Elections comes every 4 years in our country and if great effort is not taken, we could hurt the country and its people needlessly and invariably our democracy.

“We have to sign up to these ideals, we can campaign without recourse to hate speech, libel, lies, undue criminalisation of people and each other.”

Showunmi added: “On our part, we have signed up to run an issue-based campaign and if it is not too hard for the Muhammadu Buhari administration and the APC to understand, we call on you to do the same.

“There is greater value in doing so. Nigeria is the most populous black nation on earth and we owe it to ourselves and the black race to be above board.

“We are merely trying to present our idea on how the country should be lead and not interested in anything else. And by so doing, set Nigeria and its people on the path of working again.”
