The All Progressives Congress has explained why the Presidential Candidate of the Party, Bola Tinubu, visited Former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
Premium Politics reported that Tinubu on the 17th of August, 2022 visited Obasanjo, in his home residence in Ota, Ogun State.
It would also be recalled that Obasanjo, on Sunday endorsed the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, for the 2023 Presidential election.
While endorsing Obi, Obasanjo, had also berated Tinubu, over his popular slang,”Emilokan”, which he described as a wrong leadership attitude.
“Let me say straight away that ‘Emi Lokan’ (my turn) and ‘I have paid my dues’ are one and the same thing and are wrong attitudes and mentality for the leadership of Nigeria now,” he wrote.
Reacting to the development, a spokesman for the Tinubu/Shettima PCC, Kehinde Bamgbetan, who appeared on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily on Monday, said the APC candidate only visited Obasanjo as a show of peace.
“That is what you call diplomacy with elder statesmen. It’s a normal diplomatic move that will show that you’re not out to fight anybody.
“But it does not mean you do not know the capacity of the person you are going to visit. This announcement of a verdict is totally not correct because it is deceptive.
“We know that has been his history: trying to impose, hoist, manipulate, and we are sure that he has seen the handwriting on the wall in the past about his capacity to convert these words into action. We know that he will not win even a polling booth in Ogun State there.”
