The Popular Democratic Party’s Presidential Campaign Council has portrayed All Progressives Congress candidate Bola Tinubu as a rejected figure in the Southwest, a geopolitical area many consider his stronghold.

The PDP campaign council stated this in reaction to calls for the arrest and questioning of Atiku Abubakar by the APC campaign council, over claims by a whistleblower, Michael Achimugu, that the former vice president helped himself with funds public while in office from 1999. 2007.

This is even as the campaign council rebuked the Tinubu Media team for attacking the duo of former president Olusegun Obasanjo and Atiku in a bid to further Tinubu’s aspiration.

A statement signed by PDP Campaign Council spokesman Dino Melaye urged Tinubu officials to remember that Lagos, where the APC bannerman dominates, was just one part of the great Nigerian nation, seeking the support of millions. of citizens to preside.

The statement titled ‘Tinubu’s Media Gang and the Pity of Election Hallucination’ read in part: “Tinubu’s struggling merchants, instead of facing the pushback that Tinubu faces everywhere, wallow in an empty prospect.

“With all of Tinubu’s false claims that he has the aces in the southwest, it is now obvious that critical social structures like Afenifere, major stakeholders like chief Olusegun Obasanjo, and faith and political voices like pastor Tunde Bakare are have rejected. .

“A man who does not enjoy charity at home now looks to tie the hands of other well-grounded and well-rounded candidates to pave the way for him. The game has just begun!

“It is not surprising that Obasanjo and Atiku are now ready to attack. The combined activities of the duo constitute the effective end of Tinubu’s misguided aspiration to inherit a position that has no ancestral link to Iragbiji. Obasanjo’s claim that ’emi lokan’ is an immoral and misleading statement and Atiku’s leading position in the build-up to the February 25 election has made them the target of angry and slanderous attacks.

“Having suffocated in the campaign space, and seeking a shortcut to implausible and improbable electoral success, Ahmed Bola Tinubu’s media gang in pitiful agony, struggled to cling to a straw putting their hope in an empty vessel, who is capitalizing on the desperation of Tinubu and his dreamers to sell fairy tales for a fortune.

“Tinubu media buffoons have often equated Nigeria with Lagos, where Baba so’pe (said Baba) is all it takes to shout for all sorts of adverse actions to be taken. They forget that Nigeria is a country of due process, where charges do not equal conviction, and where any urchin can wake up on the edge of the bed and throw tantrums without any reprimand.

“The failure of the Tinubu gang is evident in their failed blackmail and innuendo against the vibrant Nigerian media.”
