Tinubu running from media to avoid answering questions on past drug dealings – Atiku/Okowa Campaign

Leave Us Out of Your Fight with Media, Self-inflicted Woes Atiku/Okowa Campaign Tells Tinubu

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Organisation cautions Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to face his popular rejection by Nigerians and leave the PDP out of his needless ill-fated squabbling with the media.

The Atiku/Okowa Campaign dismisses the defeatist assertion by the APC Presidential Campaign Council (APCPCC) that the PDP was plotting with Arise News to embarrass its deflated candidates, Asiwaju Tinubu and Kashim Shettima.

We consider this allegation against the PDP as not only laughable and defeatist but also childish, irresponsible and totally reckless.

It is a pathetic acceptance of emptiness and defeat that instead of facing Nigerians through the media, the Tinubu/ Shettima Campaign resorted to unnecessary squabbling, lame excuses and conspiracy theories as part of its scheme to divert public attention from Asiwaju Tinubu ugly past and constant display of vacuity which landmarks his incapacity to hold office as President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

It is clear that Asiwaju Tinubu is discomfited and has refused to appear in media Town Hall series not only because he has nothing to offer but also because he is afraid to face Nigerians on allegations of fraud, certificate forgery, identify theft and link with narcotics for which he forfeited $460, 000 to the United States of America.

Nigerians can recall that Atiku Abubakar and his running mate, Sen. Ifeanyi Okowa, were invited to participate in the Arise News anchored Town Hall meeting in the same manner Asiwaju Tinubu was invited.

But Asiwaju Tinubu, who has consistently dodged the arena of public debates, turned out to be a constant ‘no show.’

Moreover, the Tinubu/Shettima is fixated on the PDP because it is dazed by our Candidate, Atiku Abubakar’s outstanding performance in media Town Hall series as well as his soaring popularity which has dwarfed Asiwaju in every ramification.

Asiwaju Tinubu’s handlers, having become frustrated in their quest to market a bad merchandise, have craftily resorted to name-calling, bullying the media and now attempting to drag our party into their pot of mess.

It is not the fault of the PDP that Asiwaju Tinubu has no content, that he is haunted by an ugly past and that he has become a butt of joke among Nigerians as well as the international community.

If Asiwaju Tinubu still desires to be President, he should make himself available for a Town Hall meeting outside his usual self-organised sessions which often end as “balabu..blublu..
