APC Presidential Primaries: Dapo Abiodun Blast Tinubu, Says He His Not An Emperor

Published

on

Dapo Abiodun , the Governor of Ogun State on Friday said that he is not an emperor, possibly in response to a remark made by Bola Tinubu, a presidential candidate for the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Abiodun emphasized that he is acting in the best interests of the people of Ogun State.

In response to Tinubu’s remark about him, the governor stated that he had promised to be fair, just, and equitable.

He tweeted: “I am not an emperor by any chance and this is not my family inheritance.

“I am holding this position in trust for all the people of this state, and I have vowed to be fair, just, and equitable and this is the solemn agreement I made between the Almighty God and myself.”

Tinubu had thrown a jab at Abiodun during his meeting with APC delegates yesterday in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.

The APC National Leader said Abiodun could not have become the Governor of Ogun State without him.

According to Tinubu, his efforts gave Abiodun an edge over the then Governor Ibikunle Amosun, who refused to support Abiodun over the controversies that arose after the party’s primary election ahead of the 2019 general elections.

It appears Tinubu was not pleased with the fact that Abiodun is supporting Vice President Yemi Osinbajo’s presidential ambition.

Abiodun had told Osinbajo when he visited Ogun recently that he would support him for being instrumental to his emergence as the Governor of the Gateway State in 2019, stressing that he is not an ingrate.

But Tinubu, while speaking in Abeokuta, said the Governor should thank God and him for his victory at the polls.

Referring to the governor, Tinubu said, “This one sitting behind me here, could he have become Governor without me? We were at the stadium, they tore all his posters. Even the party flag, they didn’t want to hand it over to him; I was the one who brought it.

If he wants to meet God at the right place, he must know that without God and me, he would not have become Governor.”

End.

Published

on

Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate for the All Progressives Congress (APC), has urged Peter Obi, the candidate for the Labour Party, to warn his supporters against spreading false information.

Speaking on behalf of Asiwaju, Bayo Onanuga, the Director of Media and Communications for the Tinubu Campaign Organization (TCO), claimed that Obi’s supporters have been spreading false information to the public in an effort to harm the APC candidate.

Recall that a report emerged online a few days ago, that the Ghanian President, Nana Akufo-Addo wrote a letter to Asiwaju, asking him to step down and support Peter Obi and take care of his health.

The President had via his official Twitter handle, debunked the report, calling it fake news, stating that it is a product of deliberate mischief with the intent to deceive the public.

Reacting, the TCO media Director asked Obi to disavow his supporters who are employing fake news against the former Lagos State Governor.

“We have come to a point where it becomes imperative to tell Obi to show leadership and disavow his supporters who are employing fake news and disinformation as deliberate tools to deceive and poison the minds of unsuspecting Nigerians,” Onanuga stated.
