Atiku Blasts Tinubu, Calls Him A Liar

Published

on

Atiku Abubakar, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Candidate, accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, of ‘lying’ when he claimed he did not meet with Nyesom Wike and the G5 Governors.

Within Nigeria reports that this was contained in a s statement issued by Atiku’s media aide, Phrank Shuaibu.

The statement read, “Apparently miffed by the reactions that have trailed his ignoble meeting with the G-5 Governors, the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, told a barefaced lie by denying ever meeting the governors in London.”

“Incidentally, Governor Nyesom Wike, who is known for his bravado, had failed to deny ever meeting with Tinubu, saying instead that “They said we had a meeting with so and so. What is your problem?” I make bold to state that if the G-5 never met with Tinubu, Wike would have been the one to deny it.”

“Curiously, while the news of the meeting, which was reported by several credible media houses was trending, two spokesmen for the APC Presidential campaign, Festus Keyamo and Femi Fani-Kayode, took to social media to celebrate the support Tinubu would be getting from the G-5.”

“On Facebook, Fani-Kayode specifically stated, “The endorsement and declaration of support that Bola Ahmed Tinubu will get from at least six (not just five) governors from the PDP this January will finally put to rest the delusion that Atiku will stubbornly harbour about winning the 2023 Presidential election.”

“It is funny that it took three whole days after reports of the meeting before Tinubu decided it was time to put out a statement denying it ever held. It is also awfully coincidental that the G-5 and Tinubu all decided to travel to London at the same time and depart at the same time with Tinubu proceeding to Saudi Arabia and the other governors returning to Nigeria.”

“Incidentally, Tinubu had also in August denied plans of meeting the G-5 only for Wike to later issue a statement confirming that they indeed met with Tinubu and other candidates separately. Tinubu’s latest denial should therefore be discarded as another lie.”

“For Nigerians who wonder why Tinubu would deny such a meeting ever held, the reason is because the details of the meeting are too messy and the APC candidates in the five states are fighting back .”

“All the G-5 governors are on the ballot except for Governor Wike and there is a fight back from the APC governorship and National Assembly candidates from the affected states where the G-5 Governors hold sway.”

Senator Teslim Folarin of Oyo is reportedly upset over a scheme to trade off his position as the APC governorship candidate. In Abia, Enugu, Benue, and of course Rivers State, the scenario is the same.

This heinous action reveals the character of the man who wants to be Nigeria’s future president. Tinubu is a treacherous man who is more of a dealer than a leader. He has yet to explain to Nigerians his ignoble role in the infamous heroin trafficking case that resulted in his forfeiture of $460,000. For power, he will sacrifice every one of his supporters.

When Tinubu pulled the rug out from under Nuhu Ribadu of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) and struck a deal with the Federal Government to guarantee that President Goodluck Jonathan would win, this desperation came to light.

Because Nigerians have determined that their future will not be placed in the hands of a guy who is willing to exchange their futures for a meager bowl of porridge or agbado, all of Tinubu’s schemes will fail.

The truth is that no amount of horse trading will be able to erase the suffering endured by Nigerians throughout the last almost eight years under the APC.

Nigerians’ situation has drastically worsened since 2015. A dramatic depiction of life under the APC, where traveling by road to any area of the country has turned into a journey through the valley of the shadow of death, can be seen in the faces of angry drivers waiting in lines to buy gas during the holiday season.

Nigerians appeared to be going hungry this holiday season as food prices skyrocketed due to inflation, which reached startling levels.

In the final seven and a half years of the APC, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) went on strike twice, costing innocent students their lives as a result of the APC’s poor leadership and mismanagement. The National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) estimates that there are at least 133 million Nigerians.

In the last seven and a half years of the APC, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), spent a combined two years on strike with innocent students paying for the bad governance and maladministration of the APC. According to the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS), at least 133 million Nigerians live in abject poverty. That is more than the combined population of Cape Verde, Guinea Bissau, Gambia, Mauritania, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Togo, Benin, Guinea, Senegal and Mali, making Nigeria the poorest nation in the world.

On the watch of the APC, violent and mindless killings have become commonplace. Nearly 5,000 Nigerians were killed in the first half of last year, the Nigerian Security Tracker operated by the Council on Foreign Relations stated.

In Kaduna State where the APC is fully in charge, bandits took over the international airport and bombed a train, kidnapping several passengers who had to pay billions to secure their release. There were also attacks at a Catholic church in Ondo where 40 worshippers were killed while at the Kuje Correctional Centre, many terrorists were released with most of them still on the loose.

The United States and other countries had to advise their citizens not to visit Abuja because of the clear failure of the APC. Rather than apologise to Nigerians, the APC is now selling a false message of renewed hope through Tinubu, the party’s national leader. How can those who plunged us into the current mess be the solution to the same mess? Balderdash!

The problems plaguing Nigeria will determine how citizens vote and not the political horse-trading of a ‘corn-man’.
