… says his victory at the APC convention will mark his last political outing in Nigeria

   Bola Tinubu… victorious

The Peoples Democratic Party  has taken its first shot at the flagbearer of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

The party said in a statement issued on its official  Twitter handle that Tinubu would s soon realize that Nigeria is not his personal estate.

It stated: “The PDP mocks Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu (BAT) for clinching at very great price, the Presidential ticket of the moribund, decrepit and crippled APC, which has since served out its purpose as a fraudulent contraption that brought in the failed, corrupt and rudderless administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

“Our Party also sympathizes with Asiwaju for embarking on a journey to nowhere as he is no match for PDP’s more popular, more competent and more prepared Presidential Candidate, His Excellency, Abubakar Atiku  the unifier and the people’s choice, who defeated President <span;>Buhari fair and square in the 2019 Presidential election.

“Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu will soon realize that Nigeria is not one of his acquired estates or fiefdoms and that the Nigerian people are not his political string-puppets and retinue of lackies, from whom he bought the APC Presidential ticket.”

It said that Tinubu “will also soon realize that Nigerians hold him responsible for his self-confessed role in installing the failed Buhari-led administration that subjugated the people, brought excruciating economic hardship, acute poverty, bloodletting, terrorism, mass killings promoted disunity, tribalism and nepotism, lawlessness, massive treasury looting and unpardonable life-discounting experiences to our country.”

Saying that it was reprehensible that the APC flagbearer did not “demonstrate any form of remorse for the injuries he engineered” and caused the nation in the last seven years, it noted that the official flag handed over to him “refused to unfold in recognition of the gloomy times of the APC.”

“His failure to express empathy for the victims of violence, kidnapping, mass killings and acts of terrorism, especially the recent gruesome attack in a sacred place of worship, St. Francis Catholic Church, Owo in Ondo State serves as a foretaste of the big cover up and h<span;>arrowing experience that Nigerians will face, God forbid, should BAT emerge as President in 2023.

“His acceptance speech further exposed his manifest lack of capacity, presence of mind, resourcefulness and selflessness to manage the affairs of a nation as complex as Nigeria.

Based on what the PDP described as Tinubu’s “egotistic outbursts” before and after the APC’s “manipulative National Convention”, the party observed that “it is crystal clear that his life-long dream of clinching the APC Presidential ticket is not for the wellbeing of Nigerians”

According the PDP, Tinubu’s ambition is borne “but out of <span;>desperation to lay hands on the keys to the nation’s treasury.

“BAT has insulted the sensibilities of Nigerians enough and this APC National Convention will be his final political outing.”

“This is because Nigerians have had enough and are now, more than ever before, ready and out on the platform of the PDP <span;>to defend our nation and reject BAT in the 2023 Presidential election.”

Atiku…has been waiting for the emergence of other party flagbearers.

Turning the complexity of Nigerian politics, the PDP stressed it is far more complex than Lagos politics where Tinubu operates with “brawl and deployment of violence rather than brain.”

“What Nigerians needs now is a unifier in the face of the pain and discomfort inflicted on them by BAT, his live band of APC looters and mean human beings. He needs to know that Nigeria is not Lagos!”

“The PDP therefore charges Nigerians to continue to stand shoulder to shoulder with our Presidential Candidate, Atiku, their choice President in this mission to Rescue, Redirect and Rebuild our nation from the misrule of Asiwaju and his APC”, the statement added.
