Atiku Slams Tinubu: Face Your Frailties, PDP Crisis is Not Your Business
On September 23, the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar slammed the All Progressive Congress (APC) and Ahmed Tinubu, the presidential candidate of APC, for intruding in its internal crisis.
In a statement on Friday by Bayo Onanuga, Director, Media and Publicity of Tinubu’s presidential Campaign Council, Tinubu mocked PDP and Atiku over Nyesom Wike and the Rivers State Governor’s revealing media chat.
Bayo has said in a statement that “Once again, another bid for the presidency of our country by former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, is slipping away. This is unravelling before our very eyes even before the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) blows the whistle on an electioneering campaign. His party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is in disarray. The signs are just too ominous for the Waziri Adamawa with the report by the Economic Intelligence Unit predicting another trashing for him in the forthcoming polls.”
“After violating his party’s code for power rotation between the north and south and grabbing the PDP ticket without a modicum of sensibilities about our national ethos, Alhaji Atiku is now faced with the karma of his inordinate ambition.”
Former Vice President Atiku reacted via a statement signed by his Media Adviser and described APC and Tinubu as busybodies, advising them to face their frailties.
He described that the APC state on issues concerning development within the PDP is a ridiculous work of an interloper.
Atiku said APC should focus on its acceptability and credibility issues rather than poking its nose into the internal affairs of PDP.
The statement read, “Reading through a disingenuous press release by the APC Presidential Campaign Council on issues pertaining to developments within the PDP comes across as a laughable work of an interloper.”
“The release is disingenuous because it lacks any merit of a reasonable, intellectual riposte. Rather, it exposes the APC and its presidential candidate as a bunch of busybodies, who rather than focus on the burden of credibility that continues to dog their campaign, are poking their nose into minor internal issues of the PDP.”
