“…He is not Asiwajuâ€™s doctor and is not privy to his medical record, Obi has again disgracefully elevated what has for long been a beer parlor gossip and social media lie being propagated by his IPOB supporters.”
Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for president, has responded to Peter Obi, the standard-bearer for the Labour Party (LP), who called him unqualified to run for office in the 2023 election.
In his response, Tinubu chastised Obi for claiming that his (Tinubu’s) supporters are only backing him because of his wealth, despite the fact that he is healthy and strong.
This was contained in a statement issued on Tuesday by the Director, Media and Publicity of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Bayo Onanuga.
The statement read in part:-
â€œSince he is not Asiwajuâ€™s doctor and is not privy to his medical record, Obi has again disgracefully elevated what has for long been a beer parlor gossip and social media lie being propagated by his IPOB supporters.
â€œObi in his characteristic manner is amplifying falsehood which should not have a place in decent political campaign.
â€œWe believe that political leaders should be guided in their utterances and be sticklers for the truth, but Obi has thrown all caution to the wind, pronouncing on issues he has no moral and professional competence to make a judgement call on.
â€œWe want to make it crystal clear to all the traducers of the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate that Asiwaju Tinubu is not ill. He is hale and hearty. A man who works for 20 hours a day, meeting people and strategising about finding solutions to Nigeriaâ€™s problems, cannot be said to be ill. We make bold to say that our candidate is as fit as the fiddle.
â€œWe also want to educate Peter Obi and his horde of gullible followers that Tinubuâ€™s millions of supporters countrywide are backing him not because of any pecuniary benefit. Asiwaju Tinubu supporters are rooting for him because of their strong belief in his demonstrable ability to provide progressive leadership for our country.
â€œThey are supporting him because they believe in his capacity as a transformative leader, who once made a historic mark in Lagos State and is capable of replicating same in Nigeria.
â€œOn this score alone, Tinubu is unmatched in the field by even the perennial presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar. He is certainly not in the same league with the rabble rousing Peter Obi by all leadership parameters,â€
