Tinubu, Osibanjo Oath Allegation: Dele Alake Replies Fani-KayodeFeatured, Latest News, Nigeria 2015 Election Monday, March 2nd, 2015
Ayo Balogun, Lagos – The Director, Strategic Communication, All Progressive Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Organisation, Dele Alake has replied the Director of Media of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Organisation, Mr. Femi Fani-Kayode over his allegation that the APC National leader, Bola Tinubu planned to become Vice President through the back door by making the party’s Vice Presidential candidate, Prof. Yemi Osibanjo to take an oath to step down after six months.
Alake said, that the message came through Mr. Femi Fani- Kayode who, just a few days ago, was brought to answer corruption charges, makes the message incredulous.
“The whole world knows the other reasons for the incredulity of any message delivered through him. However, to the uninformed, there is no iota of truth in such allegation. It is the product of infantile, wild imagination of a convoluted, distorted and warped mind.
“In the APC, we do not indulge in oath-taking, pact-signing and such other rituals that the PDP establishment is adept at. Such PDP- induced Okija scenarios have no place in the APC.
Professor Yemi Osinbajo is a thorough-bred, accomplished professor, teacher, pastor, mentor and preacher who is nationally and internationally acknowledged as a man of probity, integrity, transparency and competence who can never be part of such inanities.
“Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu on his part, is the foremost national leader of the APC who has achieved an enviable, political status, fame and stature. He has gone far beyond using subterfuge to attain any political position. It is widely known, globally, that he has been pivotal in midwifing the most potent and formidable opposition movement that has become the nightmare of the incompetent behemoth called the PDP, and to the delight of Nigerians, the desired change they are waiting for,” Alake said in a statement.
He said having lost substantial ground politically and seeing the inevitability of an APC victory at the polls, it is the PDP that is strenuously engaging in all kinds of subterfuge from hurling personal abuses and attacks on Buhari and Tinubu; to election postponement antics; to evading elections at all costs and even the unfashionable idea of foisting an interim government.
Alake added that it is the PDP that is generating crisis in order to make the elections difficult if not impossible, saying that unknown to its campaign machinery, these gimmicks portray the PDP as deep in conclusive disarray.
“Indeed, the fact that the PDP campaign machinery can construct a post-presidential election scenario in which APC would be in power is a significant testimony of their admission that they have lost this election.
“We note this mental and psychological concession of victory to our party’s presidential candidate but reject the odious scenario Nigerians should please ignore this latest antic because it is untrue, ridiculous, ludicrous, mundane and jejune,” he stated.
