The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP,
Atiku Abubakar, on Saturday lambasted a National Leader of the
All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, for insisting on
supporting President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election bid in
2019. Abubakar, a former Vice President, warned that Tinubu’s alleged
“arrogance will fall off his eyes” in 2019 because Nigerians will
vote against Buhari.
The Waziri of Adamawa, who made this remark through the
spokesperson of his campaign organisation, Segun Sowunmi, said
Nigerians won’t allow Tinubu deceive them in 2019.
In a series of tweets, Sowunmi also reacted to the saga
surrounding the West Africa Examination Council, WAEC, certificate
of Buhari. Sowunmi wrote: “It is only a man of questionable pedigree whose certificate are dogged with a lot of confusion, whose parental
background is pretty much unknown, whose state of origin is
opaque and unclear that can understand how life is in the jungle.”
He continued, “If Asiwaju Bola Tinubu means that his life is in
jungle, we want to say to him that pride goes before a fall. Those
who disdain men that are going to contend with them for the
goodwill and votes of the Nigerian people with careless talk is
what we find even with Buhari.
I pity him (Tinubu) because his arrogance will
fall-off his eyes like a scale when the votes are counted in 2019.
“Let him just understand that nobody is going to allow them run a
chaotic, opaque and corruption-marred election. Let me also tell
them that INEC will not help them. We shall all meet on the day of
the election. Bola can deceive himself but Nigerians are not easily deceived.
