The All Progressives Congress has insisted that the rallies being held across the country by the so-called Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria represent an assault on the intelligence and sensibilities of Nigerians, at a time of unprecedented security and health challenges in the country. Responding to the tepid defence of the sycophantic rallies that are being deceptively powered by the proceeds of massive corruption under the clueless and incompetent Jonathan Administration, the party said, in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, in Lagos on Sunday, that no amount of inversion of reasoning by the TAN foot soldiers can wash the rallies clean of shame and disgust.
