The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has described the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, and his running mate, Kashim Shettima, as hypocrites.
This was for their recent visit to former president Goodluck Jonathan.
According to the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba, the visit came after the attacks on Jonathan’s personality by the APC.
He wrote: “In a desperate design to whitewash their battered public image, identifying with the obvious successes of the PDP and in an attempt to posture as statesmen, the APC Presidential Candidate, his running mate, Sen. Kashim Shettima and other APC leaders shamelessly orchestrated a photo opportunity with the distinguished and successful former President Goodluck Jonathan of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
“This is a patriotic Nigerian leader whose PDP-led purposeful and successful government the APC leaders viciously harassed, constantly insulted, labelled, sabotaged, and discredited for their selfish power-grabbing enterprise.
“Nigerians have not forgotten how Asiwaju Tinubu callously vilified and pilloried Dr. Jonathan, spewed hate against his administration, and reportedly funded a near riotous protest which was inflamed by concocted economic lies, propaganda, and false statistics to discredit the Jonathan-led PDP administration.”
