The Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council, on Sunday, pronounced the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, fit and healthy to contest the 2023 presidential election.
Africa Today News, New York recalls that on several occasions, the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) spokesman, Atiku-Okowa Campaign Council, Dino Melaye, had said Tinubu is unfit to rule.
He said, ‘Tinubu is not physically and mentally fit. I challenge him to a medical examination between him and Atiku. Because this is a constitutional requirement to be president and he should fulfil it.’
Reacting in a statement on Sunday, former Aviation Minister and Director of Special Media Projects and New Media, Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, said it’s a misplaced priority for the opposition party to raise a false alarm claiming that Tinubu has a health challenge
According to Fani-Kayode, Atiku was jittery over imminent defeat, which informed his media handlers’ recourse to insults, abuse, and falsehood.
‘When he and his men’s friends attempt to mock the Jagaban on issues of health, I laugh and shake my head with pity for them,’ he said.
He declared that, by all standards, Tinubu is already far ahead of Atiku as it’s already known, adding that as each day passes, their collective ignorance, pettiness, idiocy, and weaknesses are becoming more and more manifest.
‘A man that is trying to give the impression that he was part and parcel of Obasanjo’s success as president when in actual fact he was trying to frustrate that government’s efforts to improve the lives of our people is nothing less than treacherous and deceitful and he cannot be trusted with power,’ he said.
He said Atiku is a man who cannot hold his party well but wants to be president of the country, adding that Atiku is a man that cannot empathise with the suffering of the people and that gloats when people are suffering and when there is turmoil in the land cannot be trusted with power.
