APC Leaders Abandon Tinubu/Shettima Campaign – PDP Alleges

2 mins read

Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Organisation has alleged that the All Progressives Congress (APC) leaders have abandoned the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential campaign team due to the alleged drug trafficking scandal.

Spokesperson of the Atiku-Okowa Campaign organisation, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, claimed that the absence of President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC National Chairman, Sen. Abdullahi Adamu, during the party’s presidential rally in Warri, Delta State last Saturday, was an indication that they were gradually distancing themselves from the Tinubu/Shettima campaign because of the alleged narcotic deals.

Buhari and the Adamu were at the APC’s official presidential campaign flag-off held in Jos, Plateau State recently. 

Ologbondiyan said, “the absence of these two key APC leaders in Asiwaju Tinubu’s first Rally after the official Flag-Off in Jos Plateau State may be confirming reports in the public space that his Presidential Campaign has already been abandoned by his Party leaders due to his inability to adequately explain his link to a narcotic trafficking case in which he forfeited a whopping sum of $460,000.

“From all indications, APC leaders and Nigerians are now distancing themselves from the Tinubu/Shettima Campaign because of the blight cast by the narcotic trafficking case as well as other disgraceful indictment which the APC Presidential Candidate and his running mate, Sen. Kashim Shettima has not been able to extricate themselves from”.

“Already, Nigerians are expressing concerns on how President Buhari, who as a military Head of State, some 38 years ago, ordered the execution of drug couriers would be marketing a Presidential candidate in whose account a suspected $460,000 linked to narcotic drug was forfeited.”

He said the PDP Campaign Council has advised Tinubu to note the handwriting on the wall which signals that he is only surrounded by “paid sycophants, flatterers and minions who will also abandon him before the February 25, 2023 scheduled date of election.”

He added that the Atiku/Okowa Campaign commends Nigerians for their unrelenting support for the Presidential Candidate of the  PDP, Atiku Abubakar and his running mate, Sen. Ifeanyi Okowa claiming that they have shown integrity, competence and willpower to lead the charge in the mission to rescue and rebuild the country.
