Atiku praises Tambuwal for supporting his official bid
Previous Vice President Atiku Abubakar has uncovered that the previous Lagos state lead representative, Bola Tinubu has campaigned to be a VP on a Muslim pass to President Muhammadu Buhari.
Both Atiku and Tinubu looking at to be the country’s President in 2023 on the foundation of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) have been exchanging words on the issue of Muslim ticket.
While Atiku criticized Tinubu for deciding to run with Senator Kashim Shettima on a Muslim ticket, the last option said the previous is a wolf in sheep’s clothing who maintained that him should be his bad habit in the past official political decision.
This was contained in a proclamation by Atiku’s media helper, Paul Ibe, responding Tinubu’s case that the PDP official competitor has lost moral comapass.
The assertion read: “We might likewise want to remind Nigerians that despite the fact that different sources have affirmed that Bola Tinubu frantically campaigned to be made Buhari’s representative in a Muslim ticket, Bola Tinubu himself denied this on June 22, 2022, and on second thought blamed President Buhari for offering him the place of Vice President.
“Which is the very same misleading claim he has made against Atiku Abubakar. This is an example of conduct. Not taking ownership of his activities.
“Nigerians might need to take note of that on 14 September, 2005, the then US Consul General, Brian L. Browne, drafted a reminder, spilled by means of Wikileaks, wherein he expressed that Bola Tinubu was conspiring to be a running mate to either Atiku Abubakar or Muhammadu Buhari.
“This is further generally certified by the resulting political history of Nigeria. Biographers of President Muhammadu Buhari have differently related how that Bola Tinubu made a similar solicitation of then Presidential up-and-comer Muhammadu Buhari in 2015.
“In his 2016 approved memoir of President Muhammadu Buhari named ‘Muhammadu Buhari: The Challenges of Leadership in Nigeria’, Professor John Paden, an American, expounded on the issue as follows: “Tinubu, a previous legislative head of Lagos State and political ‘back up parent’ of the South-West international zone, felt he ought to be the bad habit official competitor.”
In response, Tinubu, in a proclamation by Bayo Onanuga said: “We shouldn’t fail to focus on the issue: Atiku looked to put himself on a strict higher ground by claiming to despise same confidence ticket, refering to most mistakenly the way in which he dismissed Asiwaju as running mate in 2007.
“Asiwaju said it didn’t occur as he said. It was somewhat Atiku who offered him the post, which he dismissed.
“We will get a kick out of the chance to rehash that Atiku is presently only making a politically helpful and shrewd contention, attempting to blame our Tinubu-Shettima ticket utilizing the emotive issue of religion.
“Our ticket isn’t about religion. It’s around two men, two Nigerians with histories in their different states, with checked skill and strength of character, who are coming to assist with fixing our country’s concerns of weakness, the economy and foundation.
“These issues didn’t start quite a while back. The establishment was laid in 16 years of PDP botch of our nation’s republic.”
