Onanuga said that all attempts by opposition elements to drive a wedge between Buhari Y tinubu would fail.

He said that Tinubu’s reference to the naira exchange rate at a campaign rally in Calabar, Cross River, was not an attack on the Buhari-led administration as had been speculated.

“We consider it important to correct the misrepresentation of the statement of our candidate, Asiwaju Tinubu at the campaign rally in Calabar by a section of the media,” he said.

Onanuga said Tinubu at the rally urged party supporters and Cross River people not to vote for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, due to its litany of failures during 16 years in power. .

“The reference to the exchange rate was in no way an attack on the Buhari-led APC administration, but rather an attempt to capture how the PDP’s economic mismanagement created a currency crisis in the country since 2015.” he said.

He added that people who followed the entire sequence and context of what Tinubu said at the Calabar rally would know that he directed his statement against the PDP and Atiku.

Forget it, the PDP left the foreign exchange reserve at $28 billion in May 2015, when Buhari took over despite record revenues from crude oil.

“Even with the massive theft of oil and the low price of crude oil, until recently, President Buhari had accumulated the reserve at around 38 billion dollars.

“The PDP in 1999 found the exchange rate at N85 to a dollar in 1999 and left it at N230 in 2015.

“The futile attempt to misrepresent Tinubu by the mischievous PDP media did not detract from its core message,” Onanuga said.

He added that the former two-term governor of Lagos state has explicitly said that people should not follow the PDP and Atiku because they do not know the way.

Onanuga said that Tinubu could not have meant that Buhari does not know the way, as he celebrated the achievements of his administration on numerous occasions.

APC’s director of media and publicity said Tinubu had also said on campaign forums that he would build on Buhari’s achievements if he were elected on February 25.

He said that it was therefore simply illogical for Tinubu himself to attack the Buhari administration for not knowing the way.

“On the contrary, throughout this campaign so far, Tinubu has consistently said that the PDP and all the opposition parties together do not know the path to Nigeria’s prosperity.

“He also said that the competing candidates do not have the track record that he amassed as governor of Lagos.

“As the favorite in the presidential race, Tinubu has vowed to implement his robust action plan that will bring socio-economic prosperity to our country.” Onanuga said.

He added that, however, the APC CCP was no stranger to the antics of some media organizations to deliberately misrepresent Tinubu.

Onanuga said that such media organizations accentuate everything they thought would cast Tinubu in a negative light since the beginning of the electoral circle.

“All the machinations of the opposition elements to drive a wedge between President Buhari and Tinubu will fail.

“APC, its leadership and President Buhari are strongly united behind our presidential candidate.

“All the sponsored innuendos, fabricated and imagined feuds in APC that the failed PDP and their media hope to capitalize on to win the next election will blow up in their faces.” he said
