The All Progressives Congress has become a thing of mockery in the media following the erection of a giant broom.
Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari and his party the All Progressives Congress have been mocked by a foreign journalist who took a swipe at the President over the Giant Broom’ monument constructed at the city gate in Abuja.
The female reporter identified as Fanny Facsor who works for DW News (German international channel, Deutsche Welle), visited the location of the giant broom, where she shaded the ruling party ahead of the election.
In her words, “This giant broom is made of metal and has always been the symbol of the APC party, Buhari’s party.” The symbol means nothing else than they are trying to sweep away corruption but that did not happen”.
The APC had said that the party is not responsible for the ‘Giant Broom’ monument mounted at the city gate.
APC publicity secretary, Mallam Lanre Isa-Onilu, said the ‘Giant Broom’ was erected by Nigerians who support the Buhari-led administration.
In reaction to the Peoples Democratic Party PDP’s condemnation of the structure, the APC spokesman told the opposition party to erect its own symbol.
