The All Progressives Congress (APC) has revealed the reason it’s presidential candidate Bola Tinubu visited former president Goodluck Jonathan.
Naija News recalls that Tinubu last Tuesday had visited Jonathan alongside his running mate, Kashim Shettima. Other APC members who followed Tinubu include Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, Kwara State Governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, and Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong. Speaking on the reason for the visit in a statement on Monday, in Abuja, the APC National Publicity Secretary, Felix Morka, said the party visit was aimed at strategic move for national unity and cohesion. He said: “Rattled by the recent statesmanly visit of our Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan. The opposition PDP has hit the panic button in a false alarm, saying the move won’t help our candidate and party.” Morka stated that the PDP condemnation of the visit showed that the opposition was incapable of recognizing a move made towards the common good of the country. The APC spokesperson stressed that it was sad that the PDP would rather fan the embers of hate and division instead of building harmony and national unity. “The PDP’s track record of 16 years of misrule, corruption and squandermania, remains indelible in the consciousness of Nigerians. “Contrary to PDP’s laughable claim that the duo of Asiwaju Tinubu and Sen. Shettima are distancing themselves from President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration. “It is on record that this government deftly managed two economic recessions, and pulled the nation back from the precipice where PDP’s years of atrocious rule left it hanging precariously,” he added.
