The All Progressives Congress candidate, Bola Tinubu, has been labeled by the Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Council as a despised person in the South-West, a region of politics that many consider to be his stronghold.
In response to the APC campaign council’s demands that Atiku Abubakar be detained and questioned regarding allegations made by whistleblower Michael Achimugu that the former vice president improperly used public funds while in office from 1999 to 2007, the PDP campaign council made the aforementioned statement.
The campaign council reprimanded the Tinubu Media team for disparaging Olusegun Obasanjo and Atiku in an effort to advance Tinubu’s candidacy.
Dino Melaye, the spokesman for the PDP Campaign Council, advised Tinubu’s managers to keep in mind that the Nigerian nation, over which he was seeking the support of millions of people, was broader than Lagos, where the APC flag bearer currently has authority.
The statement entitled, ‘Tinubu’s Media Gang and the Pity of Electoral Hallucination’, partly read, “The struggling marketers of Tinubu, rather than face the rejection that Tinubu is facing everywhere, are gloating on an empty prospect.
“With all the false claims of Tinubu that he holds the aces in the South West, it is now obvious that critical social structures like Afenifere, major stakeholders like Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, and faith cum political voices like Pastor Tunde Bakare, have all rejected him.
“A man who does not enjoy charity at home is now seeking that the hands of other well grounded and rounded candidates are tied to pave way for him. The game has just started!
“It is not surprising that Obasanjo and Atiku are now being set up for attack. The combined activities of the duo constitute the effective terminator of the misguided aspiration of Tinubu to inherit an office that has no ancestral link to Iragbiji. Obasanjo’s assertion that ’emi lokan’ is an immoral and misleading claim and Atiku’s pole position in the build-up to the February 25 election has made them objects of mudslinging and rabid attacks.
“Having been suffocated in the campaign space, and looking for a shortcut to a far-fetched and improbable electoral success, the media gang of Ahmed Bola Tinubu in pitiable agony, struggled to clutch to a straw by placing their hope in an empty vessel, who is capitalising on the desperation of the Tinubu and his dreamers to sell fairy tales for a fortune.
“The Tinubu media jesters have often equated Nigeria with Lagos, where Baba so’pe ( Baba said) is all that needs to be bellowed for all kinds of untoward actions to be taken. They forget that Nigeria is a country of due process, where allegations don’t amount to conviction, and where any urchin can wake up on the side of a bed to throw tantrums without any reprehension.
“The failure of the Tinubu gang is evident in their failed blackmail and insinuation against the very vibrant Nigerian media.”
