Tinubu Sends Strong, Powerful Message to Atiku, Obi Ahead of 2023 Election

Tinubu Sends Strong, Powerful Message to Atiku, Obi Ahead of 2023 Election

  • A message has been sent to the leadership of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party and Labour Party, ahead of the 2023 election
  • In the buildup of the poll, the campaign group of the APC flagbearer has urged the duo to desist from sponsoring fake news against Tinubu
  • Meanwhile, Tinubu after meeting with Nigerians in Diaspora revealed his crucial plan to rebuild the nation if given an opportunity in 2023

The opposition Peoples Democratic Party and its subsidiary Labour Party having realised they have no sure path to victory in the February 2023 presidential election upped their campaign of calumny, disinformation and misinformation on Saturday by sponsoring fake news against the All Progressives Congress Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

They did it by forging the letterhead of the Independent National Electoral Commission and the signature of its national commissioner, Festus Okoye.

This allegation was confirmed to Legit.ng through a statement signed by Bayo Onanuga, director, media and publicity, APC Presidential Campaign Council, on Sunday, November 13, 2022.

Tinubu campaign group send message to Peter Obi and Atiku

Onanuga, noted that the forged statement purportedly issued by INEC was disseminated to deceive the gullible public that INEC was investigating allegations against Asiwaju Tinubu that, they desperately hoped, will ultimately lead to the disqualification of the frontline APC Presidential candidate.

He said:
"We are not in any way surprised by the antics of the sinking opposition parties. What we found shocking was how quickly some compromised media organisations gulped the falsehood, hook, line and sinker, without attempting to verify.
"We understand why they did so: the forgery and its narrative fit their mindset of throwing overboard every known virtue of ethical journalism and professionalism, as they work in cahoot with the opposition to defame Asiwaju Tinubu.

"This inglorious path has been taken before since 2003 and in the run-up to the primaries of the ruling APC that produced Asiwaju Tinubu as the presidential torch bearer. Those who took this damned path of infamy lost their bet because Asiwaju Tinubu stands rock solid and indestructible.
"Our candidate has consistently said he will make this campaign about issues that affect the lives of Nigerians and how to proffer workable and enduring solutions that will improve quality of life of our people who are looking for leaders at all levels to improve their lives and sow them seeds of prosperity in our country."

Speaking further, Onanuga, maintained Tinubu has demonstrated this resolve by publishing an 80-page manifesto tagged Action Plan for a Better Nigeria, which he has been selling to strategic sectoral groups in the country.

Onanuga affirmed thus:

"We had hoped anyone aspiring to lead our country at this time will be a natural subscriber to this noble and higher goal.

"It is clear the opposition parties and purveyors of fake news have other negative ideas: they want to make this election cycle more about muckraking and mudslinging.
"While we want to stay above the fray and stand by our commitment to inspire our people and restore their faith and confidence in the immense goodness and greatness of our country, we want to serve notice to all the agents of disinformation and their collaborating media platforms, that our campaign organisation stands ready to confront and fight all libellous and defamatory publications against Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
"We shall no longer allow the prevailing recklessness and utter disregard for professional judgment to continue unchallenged.
"We also call on the police to investigate the circulation of the forged INEC statement and serve justice to those responsible."

Tinubu weakens Kwankwaso, Atiku's strengths as NNPP collapses structure for APC in core Arewa state

Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, has boosted his chances in the 2023 presidential election.

The boost for the presidential hopeful was noticed as the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) in Zamfara state collapsed its structure for the ruling APC.

In a viral video shared by The Nation on Twitter, members and executives of the Rabiu Kwankwaso-led NNPP in Zamfara state were seen removing their caps, which are popular as the identity of Kwankwaso and putting on that of Tinubu’s caps.

2023 election: PDP reveals plot to topple APC in Borno state

In another report, the PDP is beaming with confidence stating that its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, will dominate polls in Borno state in the forthcoming 2023 election.

PDP campaign spokesperson, Debo Ologunagba, in a statement made available to newsmen, claims that Bola Tinubu, the flagbearer of the APC, does not have a stronghold in Borno state despite being under the leadership of an APC governor and the home state of his running mate, Senator Kashim Shettima.

He also noted that Tinubu would find it difficult to accrue 25 percent votes across all states of the federation.
