The Atiku Support Organization has described the conduct of All Progressives Congress presidential candidate Bola Tinubu at Chatham House, London as a colossal shame.
Asked by the moderator to answer a few questions, Tinubu said that he would assign some members of his entourage to do so.
He assigned Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State to speak on how his government (led by Tinubu) would address insecurity and asked APC Presidential Campaign Council Director of Strategic Communication Dele Aleke to answer the question about oil theft.
In a statement from the support group, dated Monday, December 6, 2022, and signed by its National Secretary for Publicity, Dr. Victor Moses, it said in part: “The fact that Bola Tinubu was unable to provide answers to basic questions, especially on how to enhance bilateral ties in the defense area with the UK, but asked El-Rufai, Gbajagbiamila, Betta Edu and co to rescue him, which shows that Nigeria may face a great calamity ahead.
“Indeed, the entire APC program at Chatham House was a show of shame and embarrassment for Nigeria.
“It is now clear to all Nigerians why Tinubu dodged the AriseTVTownHall debate. His mental facilities have shown a complete mark of deterioration, and he cannot face a debate or one-on-one conversation about his plans for Nigeria. The continuation of the APC rule will be a huge disaster for Nigeria.
“As the 2023 election approaches, we wish to call on Nigerians not to be fooled by the APC to bring calamity to the nation. We have had enough with President Mohammadu Buhari,” he added.
The group further called on the electorate to support and vote for the People’s Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, whom they said was an experienced politician, an experienced administrator, a compassionate philanthropist and an accomplished businessman.
