The 2023 presidential campaign team of Atiku Abubakar and Ifeanyi Okowa has cautioned the standard-bearer of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, against making utterances suggesting PDP's involvement in his travails.
Reacting to the claim by Tinubu that the PDP is responsible for the persisting fuel scarcity and the redesign of the naira with the aim of frustrating his chances of winning the 2023 presidential election, the Atiku/Okowa campaign team urged the former governor to count the party out of his woes.
A statement signed by Kola Ologbondiyan, the spokesperson for the Atiku/Okowa Campaign Organisation on Thursday, January 26, said it is not strange that Tinubu wants the world to believe that his caustic remarks against Buhari were intended for Atiku and the PDP.
Seen by Legit.ng, the statement said it is clear that neither Atiku nor PDP is involved in the monetary policies or the failure to arrest the horrifically unending fuel crisis as claimed by Tinubu.

Ologbondiyan added Tinubu must not forget that in accusing the “powers that be” of causing fuel scarcity and making naira notes scarce to truncate the election, he was accusing President Buhari who is the minister of petroleum resources and the overseer of all agencies of government in charge of prospecting and distribution of petroleum resources.
He added that the former Lagos state governor is also aware that the president approved the redesign of the naira notes but has chosen to throw his tantrums against Atiku and the opposition party.
"It is therefore clear that Asiwaju’s verbal assaults against President Buhari are the official position of his confused, disoriented and disorganized Campaign Organization.
"It is noteworthy that having come to the conclusion, by himself, that he does not enjoy the support of President Buhari, having realized that his campaign is now falling apart with its leaders leaving in droves given his manifest rejection by Nigerians, Asiwaju Tinubu now seeks to blackmail the President and incite his followers to violence, with the view of truncating the electoral process and blaming it on President Buhari."
Tinubu always seeks to exonerate himself - Atiku/Okwoa Campaign Organisation
Further noting that the former Lagos governor has always sought ways to absolve himself from every failure of the present administration that he thrust on the people, Ologbondiyan said Tinubu wants Nigerians to think that he is fighting for their course.
"Asiwaju Tinubu's politics had always been about "self and the cabal" who never cared for Nigerians or the success of the government he claimed to have brought to power.
"He should therefore leave the PDP and its Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar alone and face his self-inflicted woes."
