Tinubu Shettima

The Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council, PCC, has advised the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to concentrate on the disaster currently ravaging the party rather than making childishly, silly and immature accusations of inciting violence against Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

The PDP had on Friday, December 9, 2022, at a press conference, the Tinubu/Shettima group tagged as one of the ever-boring and uninspiring events, accused the APC Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu of plots to incite violence and derail the 2023 polls.

Reacting in a statement by the Chief Spokesperson and Director Public Affairs of Tinubu Shettima Presidential Campaign Council, Festus Keyamo, the All Progressives Congress, APC, charged, what it described as a weakened PDP, to rather spend its time and energy in praying to God to survive as a going entity after the 2023 elections.

Keyamo however reminds the PDP that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is a thoroughbred democrat and one of the major architects of the democracy PDP and Nigerians enjoy today.

He noted that as a result of Tinubu enormous contributions to the country’s democratic dispensation, he would be the very last of the Presidential candidates to be accused of undemocratic conduct or underhand dealings in the electoral process.

The Minister of State, Labour and Employment further described the PDP as a thoroughly deflated and confused political party presently gasping for political breath.

He reminds them of how the same unnecessary scare-mongering tactics and crass vituperations they employed and engaged before the 2019 election failed and led to their crushing defeat.

See Full Text of Statement:
“Our attention has been drawn to one of the ever-boring and uninspiring Press Conferences of the weakened People’s Democratic Party (PDP) today accusing our Presidential candidate, ASIWAJU Bola Ahmed Tinubu of plots to incite violence and derail the 2023 polls.

This is the height of delusion by a thoroughly deflated and confused political party which is presently gasping for political breath. This is the same unnecessary scare-mongering tactics and crass vituperations they employed and engaged in before the 2019 election which led to their crushing defeat. Instead of concentrating on the disaster presently ravaging their party and praying to God to just survive as a going entity after the 2023 elections, we are confronted by such irresponsible statement. 

Let us remind the PDP that ASIWAJU Bola Ahmed Tinubu is a thoroughbred democrat and one of the major architects of the democracy PDP and Nigerians enjoy today, so he should be the VERY LAST of the Presidential candidates to be accused of undemocratic conduct or underhand dealings in the electoral process. 

These same characters who issued the statement were behind the poor showing of the PDP in 2019. They are doing the same thing the same way again and expect a different result. With a disjointed party, divided Governors and a comatose campaign, the PDP should realise the game is up. They are already finding excuses for their defeat. 

ASIWAJU Bola Ahmed Tinubu deserves an unreserved apology from the PDP.

Thank you.
