The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar Campaign organization has told the All Progressives Congress, APC, and its presidential candidate, former Lagos State Governor, Bola Tinubu to apologize to Nigerians instead of campaigning.
Atiku’s Campaign organization lambasted Tinubu and the ruling APC for comparing the years of the PDP to the alleged famished years of the APC.
Kola Ologbondiyan, the spokesperson of Atiku’s campaign organization, in a statement on Saturday, December 17, 2022, also described the APC Presidential Campaign as “plagued by a Lying Spirit”.
Atiku campaign organization insisted that life was exceptionally better under the PDP than the current APC.
It described the APC-led Federal Government as a deceptive, corrupt, and incompetent administration that has allegedly wrecked the economy and foisted an era of pain, sorrow, anguish, and mass killing on the nation.
The statement read in part “It is unfortunate that at a time when Nigerians expect Asiwaju Tinubu to be remorseful and ask for forgiveness, he is going around with another box of lies with which he intends to beguile Nigerians once again.
“If there is any political party in the world that should never seek electoral votes because of its many failures, that party is the incompetent, deceptive, and insensitive APC.
“Nigerians are already aware that the Tinubu campaign is trying to divert public attention from its inability to articulate or process issues of governance as well as Asiwaju Tinubu’s incapacity to debate either in the media or public space.
“The continued resort of the TInubu/ Shettima Campaign to diversionary tactic shows Tinubu’s acceptance of the superiority of the Candidate of the People Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar.
“In any case, it is imperative for the Tinubu/Shettima Campaign to know that Nigerians are still waiting for their response to the litany of allegations surrounding Asiwaju Tinubu’s smelly past”.
‘Forget Atiku, Peter Obi Is Our Only Worry’ – APC Chieftain Confesses
Ahead of the forthcoming presidential election, a chieftain of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Osita Okechukwu, has said his party is only worried about Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate and not about Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Okechukwu also said Bola Tinubu, APC’s presidential candidate, has come a long way and knows the country very well to win the 2023 presidential election, among other candidates.
The Director General of the Voice of Nigeria disclosed this on Monday, December 12, 2022 morning while featuring on the Arise Television Morning Show programme.
He said Atiku had lost his base and that he could not harvest Buhari’s 12 million votes.
“As per Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, what nobody can deny is that he knows the onion. He knows the gravitas, he knows the country, and he has come a long way. And we are not bothered about PDP; for instance, Atiku has lost his base.
“We are more bothered about Peter Obi and others. Kwankwaso, we know he is qualified and highly capable, but he is riding against the zoning convention. And so, if you tell us about Peter Obi, then we can say, ok, that is where we are worried, but not about Atiku, who has lost his base.
“Atiku cannot win; I challenge those who are saying so. He cannot harvest Buhari’s 12 million votes; he cannot. He does not have Buhari’s vote bank,” he said.
