The National Coordinator and Convener of Social Rehabilitation Group, Dr. Marindoti Oludare, has urged Nigerians to ignore the ‘show of shame’ displayed by the Peoples Democratic Party, presidential campaign council spokesperson, Dino Melaye.
Premium Politics had reported that on Tuesday, Melaye was seen, in a viral online video, mocking the health condition of the All Progressives Congress, presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, during the party’s presidential rally in Delta State.
Oludare, in a statement on Wednesday, said it was appalling for the PDP to be making jest of people living with health conditions, according to Vanguard.
The statement read, “I just saw a video of PDP making jest of Asiwaju’s health condition. We all know brother Dino didn’t know better. But the vice-presidential candidate of the PDP, Governor Aminu Tambuwal, Dr Andy Uba and other PDP stalwarts found this show of shame amusing.
“This shows that PDP is a travesty of a party. These are a bunch of crass ass politicians. They feel it’s right to make jest of people living with health conditions.
“There are Nigerians whose fathers, mothers, and children have died of a stroke. Two of my friends last year had a heart attack. Two have had a stroke that they recovered from, and they are in their mid-30s.
“But PDP feels the pains and suffering of these people with medical conditions are amusing. They are amused with people with polio, people with cerebral palsy, and people with tremors. They think it’s funny.”
