Tinubu Blasts PDP For Insulting BuhariFeatured, Latest News Monday, December 15th, 2014
The National leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu has blasted the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for insulting its Presidential candidate, Major General Muhammed Buhari (Rtd).
The PDP had said Buhari was a stooge of the Tinubu-led APC and has been made to bend his principles as he could not appoint his own running mate himself.
Tinubu, in a statement said Buhari was elected at APC national convention because of his qualities as he is a man of principle and one who is committed to the nation and that his overriding concern is the wellbeing of Nigeria.
According to him, the former Head of State could never be a stooge to anyone as he is a man of such principle and that his leadership presence could not be a puppet.
“Those who claim he is a puppet do grave insult to an outstanding patriot and millions of Nigerians who support him. PDP would do better if they spent their time trying to fix their rickety ship after such dismal primaries than to cast stones at the APC’s more democratic and genuine process. They speak in this manner because they are afraid the APC will confront them with a ticket they cannot beat by fair means.
“We will do our own internal consultations and arrive at a ticket we believe is best suited to govern Nigeria. If they are so interested in who we pick they are free to quit their bankrupt party and join the party that offers the best hope for this nation and its future,” he stated.
