The media aides of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, have explained why Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) dreads facts and figures used by opponents in place of mere rhetoric.
In a statement Sunday, the Obi-Datti Media Office, noted the attempts by Tinubu and his party to cast aspersions on the informed use of statistics by Peter Obi, declaring that the APC candidate is ill-equipped to comprehend arithmetic or statistics.
“Tinubu had said at a rally of rented crowds in Gbaramatu Delta State that Peter Obi of the Labour Party lied with figures, stressing that, “a speech-challenged contestant who cannot pronounce or spell ‘m.u.l.t.i.p.l.i.c.a.t.i.o.n’ and wants to argue about numbers, arithmetic, and statistics say a lot about how low we have climbed in this country.”
“We find it extremely laughable and shameful that a candidate who is aspiring to lead his country but has not been able to present any identifiable record of his origin, age, and educational background is challenging the man who is indisputably equipped with the way to go about salvaging our dear country.
“The fact that the APC man has questionable bio-data has left the electorate guessing his real age and health status.
“These days, every APC rally produces its tongue-twisters like “Blu bla blu,” “no down payment for roasted corn for electricity,” “the Deputy Senate President will be the governor of Niger Delta,” “I will recharge Lake Chad if am elected President,” “if you love me go and collect your APV and vote for APC,” “God bless PDAPC,” or miscalling the name of his campaign director-general, Solomon instead of Simon.
