THE presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has opined that any presidential candidate in the forthcoming 2023 general elections whose health condition is not known by the citizens should not be trusted.
This is coming after the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu had clearly made reference to Atiku Abubakar, during an interactive session with members of the Tijjaniyyah sect in Kano last weekend, where he said he will not be a president on part-time basis, who will be alternating between Dubai and Nigeria.
As a response, Paul Ibe, the media adviser to Atiku Abubakar replied accordingly to Tinubu’s comments, saying that: “The president of Nigeria, the most populous country in the black continent is not for comedians.”
“The process of selecting a president is not a jamboree so the earlier the APC puts its house together and starts by having a council in place. They shouldn’t be taken seriously because of their inability to organise.
“Nobody should take the candidate of that party (APC) seriously. No one should take a candidate and a party whose health situation, early school, and early years are all shrouded in secrecy. No one should take such a candidate seriously.”
Atiku Abubakar has been a frequent visitor to Dubai on business trip or vacations. In 2019, he was in Dubai for a long period of time before President Muhammadu Buhari was announced the winner of the 2019 election.
