Tinubu Should Discuss Current National Issues, Not Individuals, Says Okowa

Social sharing

The governor of Delta state. Ifeanyi Okowa has fired back at the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu for stating that his running mate, Kashim Shettima is a better candidate than the man chosen by his PDP counterpart, Atiku Abubakar.

Okowa who would be serving as the vice-presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2023 presidential election said that Atiku is a big threat to the APC and Tinubu as the poll approaches.

In a statement released by Okowa’s media aide, Olisa Ifeajika said that the governor also asked Tinubu to engage in an issue-based campaign ahead of the build-up of the elections rather than discussing people.

“If Tinubu thinks that he is good, he should not foreclose that there won’t be other persons that are good or even better in politics where he thrives. “It was his choice to pick his running mate for whatever criteria he had.

The same considerations, no doubt, the presidential candidate of PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, had in choosing Senator Ifeanyi Okowa over all the other candidates screened.”

He added: “We are asking Tinubu to face his contest. He has a joint ticket with whom he has chosen as his running mate just as Atiku has done. So, he should be preoccupied with how to go to the contest and leave the campaign of calumny.

“He should be discussing issues affecting the general wellbeing of the people, not discussing individuals.”
