Atiku to Tinubu: Nigerians won’t elect a ghost president
The special assistant to People’s Democratic Party (PDP) presidential hopeful Atiku Abubakar on Wednesday, November 2 played down on the chances of All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, declaring that Nigerians won’t elect a ghost president.
In a statement issued in Washington DC, Mr. Phrank Shaibu accused Tinubu of shying away from public scrutiny and using proxies to answer questions reserved exclusively for would-be presidents.
Shaibu who was reacting to the meeting with the private sector organized by Tinubu, said the former Lagos governor had on two occasions dodged the invitation of the Lagos Chamber of Commerce Industry (LCCI) but decided to play smart by organising his own meeting.
