The presidential standard-bearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has cautioned the Labour Party Presidential Candidate, Peter Obi to desist from politics of falsehood and canvass on issues that are credible.

Tinubu said this in response to the video leak of Peter Obi, saying Tinubu he is not medically fit, adding that his so-called Loyalists are only after his money.

Tinubu, who stated this via a press statement issued by the Director, Media and Publicity of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Bayo Onanuga, said

“Since he is not Asiwaju’s doctor and is not privy to his medical record, Obi has again disgracefully elevated what has for long been a beer parlour gossip and social media lie being propagated by his IPOB supporters.”

“Obi in his characteristic manner is amplifying falsehood which should not have a place in decent political campaign.”

“We believe that political leaders should be guided in their utterances and be sticklers for the truth, but Obi has thrown all caution to the wind, pronouncing on issues he has no moral and professional competence to make a judgement call on.”

“We also want to educate Peter Obi and his horde of gullible followers that Tinubu’s millions of supporters countrywide are backing him not because of any pecuniary benefit. Asiwaju Tinubu supporters are rooting for him because of their strong belief in his demonstrable ability to provide progressive leadership for our country.”

“They are supporting him because they believe in his capacity as a transformative leader, who once made a historic mark in Lagos State and is capable of replicating same in Nigeria.”
