The Director of Strategic Communications of the Presidential Campaign Council of the Peoples Democratic Party, Dele Momodu, has said that the lack of quality in the campaigns of the All Progressives Congress campaign organization is the reason why most of the ruling party bosses, including the president, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retired), are not campaigning for their candidate, Bola Tinubu.

Momodu made the claim in a brief statement issued on Saturday.

The statement said: “It is obvious that the president, Muhammadu Buhari and many senior APC chiefs are palpably embarrassed by the quality of their presidential campaigns, which have been extremely lackluster.

“Your candidate failed miserably to sell even his own manifesto. It has been one blunder after another. To Chairman Buhari’s credit, he was able to present a strong defense when he was accused of some shortcomings in the past. In the case of Tinubu, his team has only resorted to intimidating the opposition and the media without offering responsible explanations in the face of very serious accusations and complaints.

“Social media is awash with unbelievably embarrassing jokes and comedy skits about a once enthusiastic and highly respected Southwestern political icon.

“Therefore, it is not surprising that the president has been slow to campaign alongside a candidate who has brought them more pain than glory.

“Imagine that the president did not say a word when he handed over the party flag to chief Bola Tinubu. That was the first disturbing sign that all is not well at APC’s House of Shock.

“Not even Chief Asiwaju’s ally and former Lagos State Attorney General, Vice President Professor Yemi Osinbajo, has been seen standing by him to defend his policies and his character and personal attributes. There are only a few agitators and political middlemen left to incite him. This is the most unusual presidential campaign I have ever witnessed.”
