The camp of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu has replied the Labour Party (LP) flagbearer, Peter Obi over his claims that Nigeria is sick and can’t be handed over to a sick president.
The APC camp in a statement by the spokesman of the Tinubu Presidential campaign council in the southeast Dr. Josef Onoh said it is obvious Obi is a quack medical doctor and quack candidate who can’t correctly diagnose what is wrong with Nigeria.
He added that it would be wrong to hand over the presidency to such a person who can’t understand the symptoms but wants to treat a patient.
The statement comes as a response to Obi’s submission in Enugu State on Thursday where he warned Nigerians against voting for an incompetent President in 2023.
He stated during his campaign while taking a dig at some other candidates, that Nigeria does not deserve a president that can’t stand for thirty minutes.
The LP candidate without mentioning any name, added that a contestant whose background can’t be verified, whose age, identity, schools attended or his classmates and other details are shrouded in secrecy is also pushing to become the next president but warned Nigerians not to vote for such a person so as not to push the country into a bigger mess.
However, in response, Tinubu’s campaign spokesperson in a statement issued in Kano on Friday warned Nigerians against casting their votes for Obi as he claimed it would amount to unpalatable consequences for the nation.
He queried why Obi wants to become the leader of a country he says is sick, adding that the former Anambra State Governor lacks experience and may not know what to do in challenging situations if handed the reins of leadership.
He said: “We agree that our country, like other countries in the world, experiences suffering. It is also full of overcoming it, healing takes courage and Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has the courage even if he has to dig deep to find it unlike the Obidients’ quack Doctor who advertises a positive cure for any disease, who issues nostrum testimonials, who sells his services to a secret non-existent remedy, or who diagnoses and treats by mail patients he has never seen which is typical of a quack doctor.
“This same mobile quack doctor told Nigerians he wants to be president so he can replicate what leaders have done in Singapore, Egypt, etc, in Nigeria which obviously isn’t the remedy his so-called sick country needs.
“A quack presidential hopeful like a quack doctor have no proper knowledge of the right dose, the way drugs act in the body, how to counter adverse/side effects of drugs/economy and what to do when emergencies/ national security issues similar to complex medical situations arise.
“Casting your vote for the Labour Party presidential candidate will only result in unpalatable consequences for our great nation, whom he has disrespected so much and called sick.
“Asiwaju Bola Tinubu said he wants to be president so he can replicate the development we did in Lagos in Nigeria, clearly a huge contrast from the international remedy the Labour Party presidential candidate hopes to import.
The good news is that Nigeria and Nigerians understand that healing our nation is connected with healing others, we are not a sick country nor have a sick candidate as the quack doctor would wish Nigerians to believe neither are we victims of aging, sickness, and death.”
Stop Brainwashing The Youths
Speaking further, Onoh alleged that rather than focus on real issues, Obi is inciting the youths and telling them to tack back their country.
He however boasted that the Labour Party candidate would lose the February presidential polls and his followers would realize he is a scam.
The spokesperson said: “These are part of the scenery, not the Obidient quack doctor, who is immune to any form of change. Who has focused his campaign at brainwashing the vulnerable youth and select gullible Nigerians while failing to realize the dangers of raising such mob in future especially after his failure at the polls come February because he doesn’t want to heal Nigeria rather he hopes to convince the young generation that they need to take back their country which does require such rather than encouraging them to work together and promote their country.
“I ask, take back which country and hand it over to him? Isn’t he afraid of getting infected, too? Clearly this is a clear case of political scam where the thief tells you to break into your father’s house and steal his money and bring to him while he waits in the corner street to receive it and the gullible one falls victim only to realize that he stole his school fees.
“Finally, there is no medicine like hope, no incentive so great, and no tonic so powerful as expectation of something tomorrow.
Hence, let’s join hands support Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and together, we renew hope for Nigeria. The quack doctor, if in doubt, can go and verify.”
