2023: Buhari Staying Away From Tinubu Campaign Because Of Asiwaju’s Lack Of Integrity – Atiku Camp

Published

on

The spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Council, Kola Ologbondiyan, has said the lack of integrity of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, is responsible for President Muhammadu Buhari’s absence from the APC campaign.

CityNews reports that Ologbodiyan made this known in a statement in Abuja, late on Wednesday, January 4, 2022.

He noted that Tinubu was the least qualified person to campaign using integrity as a tool because he is surrounded by several allegations bordering on corruption, perjury, inconsistencies in name as well as alleged narcotics offense.

Ologbondiyan also questioned Bola Tinubu on the identity theft of the former Governor of Cross Rivers State, Donald Duke, which was deliberately used by his campaign organization to portray him as a bright young boy.

The Atiku/Okowa campaign further said Buhari’s continuous absence from the APC campaign is due to the inability of Tinubu to provide a convincing explanation of the alleged forfeiture of $460,000 to the United States authorities in a narcotics-related matter.

The statement reads: “Is it not an absurdity that a presidential candidate that is beleaguered by several allegations bordering on corruption, perjury, identity theft, inconsistencies in name as well as alleged narcotics offence, for which he forfeited a gargantuan sum of $460,000 to the United States of America, could muster the courage to address any gathering whatsoever on the issue of integrity.

“Has Asiwaju Tinubu defended the identity theft of the picture of former Governor of Cross River State, Donald Duke, which was deliberately used by his campaign organization to portray him as a bright young man?

“Our campaign also holds that President Buhari is distancing himself from Tinubu’s campaign because of the inability of the APC presidential candidate to provide a convincing explanation on his links to the alleged forfeiture of $460,000 to the United States authorities in a narcotics-related matter.

“We, therefore, counsel Tinubu to stop dishing empty promises to Nigerians since compatriots are yet to recover from similar events which he led in the past.
