The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has described his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) counterpart, Atiku Abubakar, as Nigeria’s worst enemy.
Tinubu also argued that the current sabotage of the Naira notes swap and fuel scarcity that have caused untold hardship to millions of Nigerians across the country revealed the true character of the PDP presidential candidate as public enemy number one.
Asiwaju, in a statement signed by Bayo Onanuga, the Director, Media and Publicity, APC Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), said that it takes a visiting presidential candidate resident in Dubai not to feel the pains of the suffering Nigerians.
“Nigerians will recall that since the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) introduced its current cash-limit and new Naira notes swap policies, Atiku and PDP maintained opportunistic silence with the hope they will benefit from the discomfort the policies will create for Nigerians and the resentment they will generate for the ruling APC,” the former Lagos State governor noted.
Lambasting the former vice president further, the APC PCC wrote: “While Atiku and PDP were in bed with the saboteurs and fifth columnists among the operators of money deposit banks and oil marketers, who created the current logjam to force the outcome of the February 25 presidential election in favour of the former vice president, our candidate Bola Tinubu courageously pitched his tent with the poor masses, who have been most negatively impacted by the antics of these evil doers.
“Having realised they have lost the initiative and their antics exposed to Nigerians by Tinubu at the APC Presidential Campaign rally in Abeokuta, Atiku made a half-hearted appeal to CBN to ‘slightly’ extend the deadline for the currency swap.”
