The main spokeswoman for the Presidential Campaign Council of the Labor Party (LP), Yunusa Tanko, has pointed out that the speech of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on the seizure of political power could serve as a recipe for violence in next year’s general elections. .
Tinubu spoke of seizing power in a London restaurant, while addressing his supporters in the diaspora.
Speaking to reporters in Abuja, Tanko said: “This is coming from a presidential candidate who is too un-presidential. How can a man who wants to rule over 200 million Nigerians use such words?
“I don’t think it’s appropriate to go into a civilized climate and start talking about power grabbing in a UK restaurant, and I highly doubt the APC presidential candidate even bothered to sign the peace deal for the UK election. 2023. .
“If he has, then his claim to seize power, at all costs, is misplaced because he is capable of getting his supporters into that mentality of using violence to get votes.
“The elections must be held in an environment free of violence, and Tinubu saying things like this is really disgusting, with the presidential elections barely three months away.
“It’s sad to hear one of us, the most experienced politician in Nigeria, speaking in this way, with people applauding and greeting him.”
