‘Hold Jonathan responsible if Ebola cases worsen in Nigeria’

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said Nigerians must hold
President Goodluck Jonathan personally responsible if the Ebola virus
disease spreads more than it has done in the country, after he failed to
stop a rally in his support in Port Harcourt on Saturday despite
warnings from individuals and groups.

In a statement issued on Sunday in Lagos by its national publicity
secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said never before has a
president of a country sabotaged his own administration’s policy and
endangered the lives of his compatriots as President Jonathan has done
over the issue of Ebola.

It said the same president who declared a national emergency on Ebola
and advised against large gatherings to prevent the spread of the virus
was the first to flout his own advice by his failure to stop the rally
by the so-called Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria (TAN) in Port
Harcourt, a few days after the virus was detected in the city and at a
time that contact tracing was going on to find all those who may have
had contact with the medical doctor victim of the disease.

‘’On the altar of political desperation, President Jonathan put the
lives of Nigerians in danger. In order to realize his ambition for
re-election, President Jonathan has shown he is ready to sacrifice as
many lives of Nigerians as possible. There goes the president’s
statement that his political ambition is not worth the blood of any
Nigerian. This president simply says what he doesn’t mean.

‘’As we said in our statement of Aug. 28th, 2014, calling on
President Jonathan to halt the TAN rallies, especially the one in Port
Harcourt, could anyone guarantee that none of those who have had contact
with the medical doctor who died of the disease will attend the rally?
That is why we are calling on Nigerians to hold the president
responsible if Ebola spreads more than it has in the country,’’ APC
said.

The party said shortly after it made the call for a halt to the TAN
rallies, others, including the NBA and Prof. Itse Sagay, in a clearly
patriotic duty, issued similar calls.’’In fact, the APC in Rivers
described such a rally most appropriately as a ‘firing squad against the
people’. But because he will rather be re-elected than give a damn over
the safety of the same people who voted him into office, because he
will rather transmogrify than transform, President Jonathan ignored all
the calls and allowed the rally to hold. This is an unprecedented act of
political desperation,’’ it said.

APC said for those who might try to spin the issue by saying the
president has no control over the organizers of the rally, they should
be asked who the rallies will benefit, whose top officials, including
secretary to the government Anyim Pius Anyim, have been attending the
rallies and what is the source of the funding of the gatherings.

‘’The TAN rallies are government-sanctioned.

“The TAN rallies are the Jonathan administration’s cunning way of
beating the INEC ban on campaigns for next year’s general elections.

“The TAN rallies highlight the impunity of the Jonathan
Administration. President Jonathan is the sole beneficiary. He can stop
the rallies today, if only he wants to put the nation’s interest above
his own personal interest,’’ the party said.
