In reaction to an anti-Atiku comment made by the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Presidential Campaign Organisation, PPCO, has on Wednesday told the former Lagos state governor to be watchful because he is most likely going to be dumped by President Muhammadu Buhari who they claimed is running an anti-people government.
Recall that Tinubu had earlier said that Atiku Abubakar will throw Nigerian into darkness, if elected as President and that he has a hand that cannot be restrained from taking whatever is on the table.
Part of the statement made by the PPCO Spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, read:
“At this critical time, when majority of Nigerians expect true Democrats, which Tinubu has always claimed allegiance, to come together and rescue our nation from the absurdity of a governance that the APC and the Buhari Presidency represent, it is unfortunate that Asiwaju chose being tied to the aprons of anti-democratic interests. It is therefore strange, if not ridiculous, that the Asiwaju of Yorubaland, can be dancing around an anti-people government at this time. Our advice to Tinubu, is that he should be watchful ahead of his 2023 wishful Presidency interests, because those he is dining with today, have demonstrated in time past, that they can always use and dump him.
“Tinubu should know that among the ranks of Presidential Candidates, Atiku Abubakar stands out as that Candidate Nigerians trust and believe in as their next President, come May 29, 2019. It is also imperative to know that the fairy tales of integrity, which he weaved around President Buhari, in 2015, have waned and become obsolete. Nigerians have moved beyond APC and President Buhari! Our Candidate, Atiku Abubakar, is a focused Nigerian, who has contributed immensely to the economic and political development of our nation. He has also displayed huge stability in character, through the bridges of human and economic relationships, he has built across our nation.”
