Tinubu, Atiku and Obi

The presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has been campaigning for his main opponents more than himself since the campaigns began.

The Special Adviser to the Benue State Governor on Media and Publicity, Mr Terver Akase, said this in a Facebook post on Saturday.

He said that instead of focusing on selling his programmes and policies to the electorate, Tinubu never missed any opportunity to say a word or two about Alhaji Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP).

“Since the presidential campaigns began, Bola Tinubu has campaigned for Atiku Abubakar of PDP and Peter Obi of Labour Party more than he has done for himself.

“He misses no opportunity to say a word or two about Atiku and Obi.

“Very good at all, as Chief Zebrudaya would say,” Akase said.

Recall that Tinubu shaded Atiku and Obi while speaking at a rally in Gbaramatu, Delta state on Friday.

He said that Atiku was always on the run and Obi was fond of “wrong statistics” which Nigerians do not need.

“As I stand before you, there are a few of us left running. One says he is Atiku. How many times has he been running? He is always on the run and he is tired. Tell him to go and sit down. Enough is enough.

“The other one think na statistics we go chop. He lies with arithmetic that no Indian can solve. To mention his name is a disgrace to me. I won’t mention the name. Wrong arithmetic, wrong statistics, warehouse economy — that is not what Nigeria needs,” Tinubu said.

It was the second time that the APC flagbearer would publicly criticise Atiku and Obi since the campaigns began.

At the APC presidential campaign flag-off earlier in the month, Tinubu called Atiku “wrong theory” and Obi “disobedient.”
