A national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has been advised not to allow himself to be deceived because he will only be used and dumped like before by President Muhammadu Buhari.
The Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organization (PDP-PPCO) gave the advise to him, adding that he (Tinubu) should mind his use of language.
Tinubu was recently inaugurated as the co-chairman with President Muhammadu Buhari for the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council.
In a statement of acceptance and appreciation for his new position, Tinubu had described Atiku as not being as honest as Buhari.
But responding in a statement, PPCO Director of Media and Publicity, Kola Ologbondiyan, chided Tinubu, saying: “At Tinubu’s stature, he ought to be found in the class of respected senior citizens who are decorous, speak statesmanly and not resorting to the gutters whenever he speaks in public.
“In politics, family ties and bonds as well as relationships are greater and stronger than political interests and it is the expectation of our campaign organization that Tinubu should understand this.
“Our candidate, Atiku Abubakar, is a focused Nigerian who has contributed immensely to the economic and political development of our nation.
“He has also displayed huge stability in character through the bridges of human and economic relationships he has built across our nation.
“At this critical time, when majority of Nigerians expect true democrats, which Tinubu has always claimed allegiance, to come together and rescue our nation from the absurdity of a governance that the APC and the Presidency represent, it is unfortunate that Asiwaju chose to be tied to the aprons of anti-democratic interests,” the statement read.
The PDP added, “Our advice to Tinubu is that he should be watchful ahead of his 2023 wishful presidency interests because those he is dining with today, has demonstrated in time past, that they can always use and dump him.
“Tinubu should know that among the ranks of presidential candidates, Atiku Abubakar stands out as that candidate Nigerians trust and belief in as their next President, come May 29, 2019.
“It is also imperative to know that the fairy tales of integrity which he weaved around President Buhari in 2015 have waned and become obsolete.”
