The PDP is a super propagandist of the Goebbelish fashion. They are capable of bringing about disaster to happen, by merely imagining and vomiting it. Because majority of them are having so little to do seriously, their imagination is fecund to the negative side at almost 100%. They have the tendency to make white look black for the gullible.
When Goebbel was doing his thing in the war that ravaged the whole world, many wrongly believed that Germany was wining but eventually, the power of propaganda failed because it has no truth to make it stand. Hitler, the man who deliberately started the war for ego sake allegedly committed suicide. Each time the PDP comes out with their lies, half truths, blackmail and all such bordering propaganda, the disastrous consequence of the Hitleric directed Goebbel propaganda on untruthfulness which brought the war in the first place comes to mind.
The latest is the two paragraph propaganda material publish in an obscure newspaper by an unknown journalist. It is true that some newspapers have descended to the abject level of picking beer parlour gossips as stories for their pages without attribution. It’s sad such an unethical slip is allowed to pass by without any consequence by the regulators.
NBC must be singled out for trying to live up to the billing of its establishment code in this regard. That is why many out there believe they can get away with anything in some newspapers. The content of the story which the PDP have since thrown on to the social media space without restraint is about an un-named person jubilating that the APC had bought the appeal at certain amount. Is it not ridiculous for a newspaper to publish without verifying? It can be safely said that there is more to that publication.
The purpose could be imagined. The PDP found it difficult (like they allegedly “got” the tribunal) to “reach” the Appeal tribunal hence the desperation to blackmail them. It is like the PDP is playing its last card in the appeal matter, and obviously, the leaves is not the ace. They are not convinced they don’t deserve what they got at the tribunal. More so now that the real facts have been restated and heard by a panel they can not “reach”. They must have planted the blackmail material at a cost in the newspaper and deliberately give it the treatment they are giving it. May God never allow PDP ‘s intention.
