Presidential candidate of the All progressive congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has challenged the opposition peoples democratic party (PDP) to approach the court over his alleged role in the $460,000 forfeiture judgement.
Tinubu while reacting to the threat by the PDP maintained that he would not be distracted from actualizing his aspiration to occupy the exalted seat of the presidency after the tenure of President Muhammadu Buhari on May 29, 2023.
Tinubu’s reaction was contained on the Facebook page of his aide on media and publicity, Mr Bayo Onanuga monitored by the Guardian.
He noted: PDP, Ologunagba are jokers: The fragmented and emasculated PDP turned itself into an accuser, prosecutor and judge today, asking Asiwaju Tinubu to quit the presidential race.
“What a comedy! The PDP spokesman Debo Ologunagba quoted an ill-digested section 137 of the 1999 constitution and decreed that Asiwaju should step down. He claimed that by the provision, Tinubu is not eligible to contest the Presidential election in Nigeria.
“His call followed the release of the 30-year-old US document its agents and media lapdogs have been spreading. Now at least we know that the party and their candidate, are behind the shameful campaign of calumny.
“Mr Ologunagba, stop dreaming! Your party can go to court if it likes. But what we know is that Asiwaju is unstoppable, by the grace of God. He will contest the election, win it, retire Atiku to Dubai and finally stop him from perennially chasing the elusive presidential trophy.”
