The Chief Spokesman of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, PCC, Mr Festus Keyamo, and director, Media and Publicity, Mr Bayo Onanuga, have reacted to PDP’s action to seek courts disqualification of the APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu over alleged drug trafficking.
PDP had yesterday commenced court proceedings to disqualify Tinubu, over criminal conviction and sentencing by a court of competent jurisdiction in the United States over trafficking in narcotics.
Keyamo, in a chat with Vanguard, said the main opposition party lacks originality
His said“Why did they wait all these months until we filed before they are now rushing to court? I challenged them more than two months ago, yet they did nothing.
‘’It shows a team that is lacking in originality, lacking in ideas and lacking in vision. It is just an attempt to create a counter-suit to our own.
“Unfortunately for them, Nigerians have seen through them already: SPV advocates that are trying to turn the tide of public opinion. Nigerians have decided; Nigerians have rejected them.
‘’This is so laughable that Nigerians are beginning to see that these are remorseless people; leopards that cannot change their skin; instead of Atiku facing the cameras, shed some tears and apologise to the nation for abusing his office as VP with SPVs, his reply, in summary, is, ‘what-about-you-too?’ This is disastrously sad”
Also, Mr Bayo Onanuga, director, Media and Publicity of the APC PCC, restated his statement of January 18, 2023 where he dismissed PDP’s “shameless skirting of issues” using the attack as a defence.
He challenged Atiku to address the issues of whether or he employed the whistleblower, Michael Achimugu, who swore to an oath; whether Atiku made a scandalous conservation on how he and former President Olusegun Obasanjo set up SPVs, such as Marine Float to steal public money; and whether the taped voice was Atiku’s.
