The Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) accused Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu of being desperate for the keys to the nation’s treasury.
In a statement signed by the publicity secretary of PDP, Debo Ologunagba, on Wednesday, June 8, the party sympathized with ‘Asiwaju for embarking on a journey to nowhere as he is no match for PDP’s more popular, more competent and more prepared Presidential Candidate, His Excellency Atiku’.
Abubakar was described as the unifier and the people’s choice, who defeated President Muhammadu Buhari fair and square in the 2019 Presidential election.
The statement reads:
Asiwaju will also soon realize that Nigerians hold him responsible for his self-confessed role in installing the failed Buhari-led administration that subjugated the people, brought excruciating economic hardship, acute poverty, bloodletting, terrorism, mass killings, promoted disunity, tribalism and nepotism, lawlessness, massive treasury looting and unpardonable life-discounting experiences to our country.
Also contained in the statement:
It is indeed reprehensible that Asiwaju, after being handed an APC flag that refused to unfold in recognition of the gloomy times of the APC, did not demonstrate any form of remorse for the injuries he engineered and caused our nation in the last seven years.
His failure to express empathy for the victims of violence, kidnapping, mass killings and acts of terrorism, especially the recent gruesome attack in a sacred place of worship, St. Francis Catholic Church, Owo in Ondo State serves as a foretaste of the big cover up and harrowing experience that Nigerians will face, God forbid, should Asiwaju emerge as President in 2023.
The PDP statement further posited that his “acceptance speech further exposed his manifest lack of capacity, presence of mind, resourcefulness, and selflessness to manage the affairs of a nation as complex as Nigeria”
The Nigerian politics is far more complex and beyond the Lagos politics where Asiwaju operates with brawl and deployment of violence rather than brain.
What Nigerians needs now is a unifier in the face of the pain and discomfort inflicted on them by Bola Ahmed Tinubu, his live band of APC looters and mean human beings. He needs to know that Nigeria is not Lagos!
Meanwhile, PDP urged Nigerians to continue to stand with Atiku Abubakar as their chosen President in the mission to Rescue, Redirect and Rebuild Nigeria from the misrule of Asiwaju and ‘his APC‘.
