A former spokesman of President Bola Tinubu in the South East, Dr Josef Onoh, has faulted the 2023 Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, for demanding President Bola Tinubu’s introduction to Nigerians.
Onoh said this while reacting to Obi’s recent press conference in support of the opposition political party’s allegation on Tinubu’s certificate.
He stated that Tinubu does not need further self-introduction except to the former Anambra State governor, according to The Nation.
He maintained that Tinubu is the president of Nigeria with Obi included.
He noted that Tinubu is committed to the party and has respect for the founding fathers of the party as well.
Referring to Obi, he said, “Your Excellency sir, please permit me to re-introduce you to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed. A. Tinubu. Like you, he is versatile with the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as he took the same oath of office of Governor as you did but unlike you, he did it twice, he remained consistent and committed to his party the Alliance for Democracy AD which he in 1999 was Lagos State Gubernatorial candidate which he won on 9 January 1999 and defeated the PDP candidate with overwhelming Popular votes of 841,732 against PDP’s 184,900.
“In September 2006 he was instrumental to the merger that gave birth to ACN which dissolved in 2013 and formed the Merger of Faction of Alliance for Democracy, Justice Party
Advance Congress of Democrats and finally Merged into the All Progressives Congress the previous and current ruling party.
“Today, May I due to selective amnesia re-introduce Asiwaju Bola Ahmed. A. Tinubu to you, constitutionally he doesn’t need an introduction to Nigerians except you alone. President Bola Ahmed. A. Tinubu is the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, he’s our president, he’s your president, he has remained committed and consistent, he is committed to our party the APC, he respects and has remained loyal to Abdulkareem Adebisi Bamidele Akande one of the founding fathers of our party the APC and national chairman of the then AD that Mr. President rode on to become Lagos State Governor.”
