You’re not the best politician in Nigeria – Okowa attacks Tinubu

The vice presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Ifeanyi Okowa, has tackled the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu over his attack on the presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar.

The running mate to Atiku Abubakar has told Tinubu that he isn’t the best political figure in Nigeria.

The Governor of Delta State said this in reaction to Tinubu’s comment that his running mate Senator Kashim Shettima was better.

The spokesperson of the Delta state governor, Olisa Ifeajika, has via a statement, advised the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate to leave the campaign of calumny.

The Delta political figure has advised the former governor of Lagos state to check his record in politics, in the legislature and in governance.

The number citizen in Delta state recalled the interview where Atiku reaffirmed that the APC chieftain wanted to be his running mate in 2007.

He said he has expected Tinubu to just reply rather than taking a swipe at him, saying that his own running mate was better than Atiku’s.

“We know Senator Bola Tinubu as a good politician and former governor of Lagos State.

“But we expect him to know that there are other politicians that are towering and are good, patriotic and have tried in their tracks to be statesmen.

“If Tinubu thinks that he is good, he should not foreclose that there won’t be other persons that are good or even better in politics where he thrives.

“It was his choice to pick his own running mate for whatever criteria he had”, the statement reads.

The statement has told Tinubu that the National Health Act came into existence from the effort of Okowa when he was in the Senate.

Ifeajika has told the APC chieftain “to face his contest…and leave the campaign of calumny.”

“Tinubu should be discussing issues affecting the wellbeing of the people, not discussing individuals”, the statement added.
