The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has sternly cautioned the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, not to draw himself out by joining in the smear campaign and unsavoury comments against its Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
Speaking with State House correspondents on Wednesday after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu who said his meeting with the President was about the nation, Nigerians, peace, stability and economic progress, stated that the rulinh All Progressives Congress, APC, would win the 2019 polls
“We don’t fear, whether he (Atiku) is meeting in the jungle, in Dubai or in Abu Dhabi. People are free to meet and strategise in any way they felt, but we are not going back to the illusion of the PDP. It is not possible, Nigerians will not do that.”, he had said.
According to Mr Kola Olognondiyan in a statement, “Asiwaju, as an elder, should not reduce his pedigree by engaging in indecorous utterances which has become the trademark of his dysfunctional party.
“It is also instructive to state that a person of Asiwaju status can conduct his political activities without recourse to indecent language that is lacking in respect for a personality, such as Atiku, whom Nigerians, across board, have generally resolved to be their next President.
“For the avoidance of doubt, despite the ludicrous disposition of APC and its leaders towards the 2019 Election campaign, the repositioned PDP and our presidential candidate remain committed to our promise to focus on solutions to the myriad of problems facing our people and transform their lives for the better.
“The PDP therefore cautions Asiwaju Tinubu to redirect the discourse of his party to productive issues instead of this unbridled resort to lies, deception, beguilement, propaganda, smear campaign and uncouth language, which Nigerians now resent,” he concluded.
