Atiku Stole PDP Ticket From South, Says Tinubu

Social sharing

The Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has said that the 2023 Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar is a ‘Tribal Jingoist’.

Tinubu’s comment is coming a day after footage of Atiku campaigning in the North went viral on social media.

The Adamawa-born politician was heard telling the Party faithful that the North does not need a Yoruba or an Igbo President only a Northern one. The video has drawn widespread condemnation.

Tinubu, in a statement on Sunday, signed by his Director, Media, and Publicity, Bayo Onanuga, added that Atiku’s ‘Tribalism’ was the reason why the PDP was in crisis. He stated that Atiku has refused to persuade the national chairman of the PDP, Iyorchia Ayu to resign because he is also from the North.

The PDP’s zoning arrangement stipulates that if the Party chairman is from the North, the Presidential candidate will come from the South.

This is the reason why Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike alongside 4 other governors has refused to participate in Atiku’s campaign.
