The Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar Campaign Organization, told the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its presidential candidate, former Lagos State Governor Bola Tinubu, to apologize to Nigerians instead of campaigning.
Atiku Tinubu’s campaign organization and the ruling APC have been criticized for comparing the PDP years to the APC’s alleged starvation years.
A spokeswoman for Atiku’s campaign organisation, Kola Olugbondian, also described in a statement on Saturday the APC’s presidential campaign as “plagued by the false spirit”.
Atiku’s campaign organization insisted that life was exceptionally better under the PDP than the current APC.
It described the APC-led federal government as a deceitful, corrupt and incompetent administration that allegedly destroyed the economy and imposed an era of pain, grief, anguish and mass murder on the nation.
“It is unfortunate that while Nigerians expect Asiwaju Tinubu to feel remorse and seek forgiveness, he is walking around with another box of lies with which he intends to seduce Nigerians once again.
“If there is any political party in the world that should never seek electoral votes because of its many failures, it is the incompetent, dishonest and insensitive APC.
Nigerians are already aware that Tinubu’s campaign is attempting to divert public attention from its inability to articulate or address governance issues as well as Asiwaju Tinubu’s inability to debate either in the media or in the public space.
“The continued resort of the TInubu/Shettima campaign to diversionary tactics shows Tinubu’s acceptance of the superiority of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) candidate Atiku Abubakar.
“However, it is essential for the Tinubu/Chetema campaign to know that Nigerians are still awaiting their response to the series of allegations surrounding Asiwagu Tinubu’s odious past.”
