The Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Organisation has mocked the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Bola Tinubu, over the absence of President Muhammadu Buhari from his campaigns.
The campaign organisation noted in a statement by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan that the president had stayed away from the campaign because of an alleged lack of confidence in the ability of the party’s candidacy.
Ologbondiyan further said it is surprising that Tinubu is talking about Integrity when there were several graft allegations against him.
The campaign organization advised the APC candidate to refrain from making “false promises,” as the nation was still reeling from the ruling party’s 2015 campaign promises.
“Is it not an absurdity that a presidential candidate that is beleaguered by several allegations bordering on corruption, perjury, identity theft … could muster the courage to address any gathering whatsoever on the issue of integrity. Has Asiwaju Tinubu defended the identity theft of the picture of former Governor of Cross River State, Donald Duke, which was deliberately used by his campaign organisation to portray him as a bright young man?
“The Atiku/Okowa campaign says the continuous absence of President Buhari at the APC presidential campaigns showcases a concern by Mr President that Tinubu will lose a free, fair and credible poll at the February 25 presidential election. We, therefore, counsel Tinubu to stop dishing empty promises to Nigerians since compatriots are yet to recover from similar events which he led in the past. We urge Nigerians to continue to give their support to the leading presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, in the collective drive to rescue and rebuild our nation,” it said.
Meanwhile, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, has vowed to uphold his commitment to faithfully serve Nigeria if put in charge.
He spoke, yesterday, during the North West presidential campaign rally of his party at the
Sani Abacha Stadium in Kano.
