The presidential campaign council for the All Progressive Congress (APC) has revealed that the political party’s flagbearer, Bola Ahmed Tinubu is hale and hearty.
The camp of the former Lagos State governor described the national leader of the APC as a “Trojan horse”, who works assiduously for 20 hours each day.
The clarification is coming against the backdrop of the allegation by Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, that Tinubu is not fit to rule the country.
The former governor of Anambra State also subtly knocked the APC presidential candidate at Monday’s retreat organized by LP in Abuja when he charged Nigerians to elect a leader they trust against one who sees the presidency as his turn to rule.
“Next year’s elections will not be based on ethnicity.
It will not be by turn, it is nobody’s turn.
It must not be by connection.
The election next year must be based on character and trust; it must be based on competence.”
Reacting in a statement issued in Abuja on Tuesday, Director of Media and Publicity for APC Presidential Campaign Council, Bayo Onanuga, described Obi as an ‘incurable liar.’
This comes as all former aspirants of the All Progressives Congress under the aegis of APC360, have called on the party’s presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, to urgently set in motion measures to halt the gale of defection that has hit the party in recent weeks, saying “it is dangerous.”
