The main opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party,PDP, has issued a stern warning to the national leader of the ruling All Progressive Congress,APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu against using the party to boost his ego while also exposing a controversial statement credited to him few years back where he allegedly described the President Muhammadu Buhari led-Federal Government as a monumental failure.
The PDP stated that Asiwaju Tinubu had surther showed that he is not interested in the over all development of the country by travelling to Mecca with the sole purpose of meeting President Muhammadu Buhari to strategise against the opposition party,the PDP.
“It is atrocious that at the time other leaders are in the Holy Land offering prayers and supplications for our nation, Asiwaju Tinubu is in Mecca for photo-ops, playing dirty politics and hurling insults at other Nigerians just to curry relevance before President Buhari,” The party revealed in a press statement released by Kola Ologbondiyan, its Publicity Secretary.
“This is the same Asiwaju Tinubu, who, in January 2018, at the 15th annual Daily Trust Dialogue, berated the Buhari administration for its nepotism, incompetence, corrupt oil subsidy regime; blaming it for the high-level poverty in our country and counselled Nigerians to be guided by their conscience in electing leaders in the 2019 general elections.
“Asiwaju, in criticising the Buhari administration, held rightly that ‘too much political and economic power resides in the hands of too few. This result in a society described by too much of unemployment, inadequate infrastructure, too little food, yet too much poverty.’
“He then added correctly that under President Buhari, ‘rather than becoming a joyous nation, Nigeria has become a cruel playground where the fears and concerns of the average person get exploited but their interests never get promoted.’”
While degrading the APC chieftain for allegedly making allusion over the PDP’s attempt to reclaim the mandate allegedly stolen from its candidate,Alhaji Atiku Abubakar at the presidential election petition currently sitting in Abuja, the opposition party insists that no matter the blackmail by the PDP it will not be distracted from its resolve.
The PDP however issued an advise to the APC’s national leader to be careful and thread gently as Nigerians members of the APC inclusive are aware of his desperation and power grabbing tactics and are determined to retire him.
