CPC blasts Okupe for attacking Buhari

Congress for Progressive Change has lampooned the Special Assistant to the President on Public Affairs, Dr. Doyin Okupe, for criticising Maj.-Gen Muhammadu Buhari over his comments on the attack on the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayaro.

The party said its attention was drawn to comments credited to the Presidential aide, who they alleged cast aspersions on Buhari for speaking on the “failure” of the President Goodluck Jonathan-led administration to provide security.

This was contained in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Rotimi Fashakin, in Abuja, on Thursday.

The satement said, “In the said response, Dr. Doyin Okupe, the Presidential aide on Public Affairs, was reported to have described Buhari’s statement, which aptly mentioned the constitutional provision that the ‘purpose of government is the welfare and security of the people’, as irresponsible, reckless and opportunistic.

“It is never surprising that Okupe’s communication is often laden with asininity and acerbic profanity. What is befuddling is the quality of leadership of the nation’s presidency that bears with such immeasurable indecency.”
