The Atiku-Okowa presidential campaign council of the Peoples Democratic Party, have alleged that the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, was forced on Nigerians for selfish reasons, therefore, urging them to reject the him.
The Spokesperson of the campaign council, Charles Aniagwu, disclosed this during an interview on “AIT Kakaaki” on Thursday morning, noting that, Tinubu’s several gaffes in public proves the contemplation that he lacks the mental alertness to lead a county during hard times.
Aniagwu further remarked that the abrupt departure of the APC Presidential candidate from the Minna rally was an indication that all was not well with him.
He asserted that having realised the APC had failed Nigerians, they now lay claims to Lagos as part of their achievements even though Lagos was built over time by the Federal Government.
He stated, “The inability of the APC Presidential candidate to carry on his campaigns seamlessly is a pointer to the fact that he is being managed and that is not the kind of leader Nigerians deserve at this time.
“Tinubu is a great leader and we respect him for all his accomplishments and contributions to nation building in the past.
“A situation where a Presidential candidate cannot speak coherently for only two minutes calls for serious concern.
“And that’s why we can hardly hear from our brother Festus Keyamo again because the kind of things he defends is already becoming an embarrassment to the legal profession.
“The other day at Chatham House, he was asked his name and somebody had to slip a piece of paper to him, he couldn’t remember immediately to the extent that he had to read the paper to remember his date of birth, is that the kind of president the APC wants for this country?
“Each time you ask them to give account of their party’s stewardship they refer you to Lagos. The Lagos that was built by the Federal Government as a former Federal capital? Or is it the Lagos that you will spend five hours for a journey that shouldn’t take not more than thirty minutes?
“They talk about the Lagos economy and I ask who collects the tax and does the tax reflect in the lives of the citizens? A Lagos that Nasir El-Rufai, an APC governor had amply described as a living ‘hell’?
“I appeal to Nigerians to reject the APC and all what they represent and embrace the PDP because the Atiku-Okowa PDP ticket is totally committed to the rescue, reset and rebuild Nigeria from the ruins caused by the APC’s maladministration,” he added.
