2023: Don’t be fooled by Atiku’s boldfaced lies, Tinubu warns Nigerians

The 2023 presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has described the campaign promises of his rival and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as boldfaced lies.

According to the former governor of Lagos state in a statement by Bayo Onanuga, Director of Media & Publicity of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Tinubu should be ashamed of his party’s record in office.

Atiku had said the best period Nigerians enjoyed under the current democratic dispensation was when the PDP was in power.

Responding, Tinubu said Atiku was “embellishing the locust years as if it was a golden era in our history.”

He said, “We need to warn Nigerians to be wary of the sugar-coated promises of former vice president, Atiku Abubakar and his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as they embark on their inordinate and desperate campaign to gain power at all cost.

“A party that should be eternally shameful about its appalling record in governance between 1999 and 2015 is now busy rewriting history, embellishing the locust years as if it was a golden era in our history.

“Of course, this is fake history at its worse. We are not fooled. Nigerians should also not be fooled about the boldfaced lies, being articulated by the candidate and his party.

“What is more shocking is Atiku’s audacity in standing up to ask for our votes despite what his boss, President Olusegun Obasanjo wrote about him in his book, ‘My Watch’. Obasanjo wrote that it would have been an unpardonable mistake “and sin against God to foist him on Nigeria”. Obasanjo still believes so till tomorrow.”

“Obasanjo still rues till today making Atiku his vice president in 1999, only to discover later, his shadowy parentage, his propensity to corruption, his tendency to disloyalty, his inability to say and stick to the truth all the time, a propensity for poor judgment, his belief and reliance on marabouts, his lack of transparency, his trust in money to buy his way out on all issues and his readiness to sacrifice morality, integrity, propriety, truth and national interest for self and selfish interest. We are, however, not totally surprised about Atiku’s latest desperation.”
