The presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar has described his opponent in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu as a corrupt person who is unfit to lead the country.
Atiku made this known in a statement issued on Wednesday by the PDP Presidential Campaign Organization in response to an earlier statement released by the APC Presidential Campaign Council (PCC).
VANTAGE NEWS reports that the APC PCC had in a statement issued by its Director of Media and Publicity, Bayo Onanuga, asked Atiku to step down from the presidential race owing to his alleged illness and involvement in looting the nation’s treasury through the Special Purpose Vehicles between 1999 to 2007.
The PDP PCC while reacting through a statement signed by its Spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, in Abuja, on Wednesday, asked Tinubu to resign over his alleged involvement in drugs and corruption allegations.
Ologbondiyan wondered why the APC asked Atiku to step down instead of asking their candidate to drop for the race over corruption charges.
The statement reads, “The campaign also describes as ludicrous the failed attempt by Tinubu , the famed Lagos property stripper, who has gained notoriety as corruption personified and the living example of the ‘artful dodger” , to impugn the impeccable character and integrity of the incoming peoples’ President, Atiku.
“It is imperative to observe that our campaign had focused on issues and refrained from Tinubu’s appalling health issues prior to this ignoble public dance of the Tinubu/Shettima Campaign.
“However, since Tinubu by himself has opened the channels for Nigerians to examine his ill-health, we have no other option than to further expose that the APC Candidate must be suffering from manifest Parkinson’s disease accompanied with incontinence.
“For clarity, Parkinson’s disease is a brain disorder which symptoms include shaking hands, stiffness of limbs, difficulty with coordination, problem with balance when walking; articulation disorder, memory problems as well as general mental and physical weakness which are all being witnessed in the APC Presidential Candidate.
“This perhaps accounts for the desperation, the endless gaffes, the articulation errors, the incoherence, the many blunders and disconnection from reality for which Asiwaju Tinubu has become the butt of weird jokes among Nigerians and internationally.“
