Phrank Shaibu, special assistant on public communication to the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar has warned that it is dangerous to hand over a sick nation to a sick leader.
Shaibu said that Nigeria was currently in a dire situation with every sector of the economy in deep decay and should not be handed to a sick president
The WITNESS recalls that APC’s presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu while speaking at the 7th edition of Kaduna Economic and Investment Summit (KADInvest 7.0) last Saturday had said El-Rufai “turned a rotten situation to a bad one.”
Although the presidential candidate later attributed the mumbo jumbo to a Freudian slip but Shaibu insisted that the Kaduna comment was one gaffe too many, insisting that “Tinubu is tired and should go home and rest.”
In a statement issued Sunday, Shaibu insisted that the Kaduna comment was one gaffe too many, saying that “Tinubu is tired and should go home and rest.”
He, therefore, called the attention of Nigerians to what he described as the unsuitability of the presidential candidate of Tinubu for the nation’s highest office on account of a series of blunders he has made since he publicly declared his presidential ambition.
Shuaibu said: “When you look at the APC presidential candidate, you will see someone that is tired and weak. You have also heard the many gaffes that have come from him even before the kick-off of campaigns.
“The Kaduna comment is one gaffe, too many, and therefore unpardonable. You don’t have to be president at all costs; when you are tired, you go home.
“Nigeria is currently in a dire situation with every sector of the economy in deep decay; therefore, the nation cannot afford to hand over a sick nation to a sick president.”
Shuaibu noted that Nigeria deserves a fit leader, stressing that the office of the President is not for ailing people.
He said Tinubu has tried his best but he is now weak and tired and should be allowed to go home and take a deserved rest.
