Keyamo demands apology from PDP for 'undemocratic' comment

The spokesperson of the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council, Festus Keyamo, has asked the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to apologise to All Progressives Congress(APC)  for its “undemocratic comment” on the APC presidential candidate  Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

The PDP Presidential Planning Committee (PCC) through its spokesperson, Senator Dino Melaye  accused Tinubu of desperation ahead of the 2023.

 He said: “The desperation of Tinubu to be President of Nigeria at all cost, by all means, and by crook and hook, was eloquently evidenced in his charge during his woeful outing in London.” 

“How else will power be snatched through the ballot box if not a resort to violence, electoral violation, and other unorthodox methods of grabbing power?”

Keyamo in a statement titled  ‘Press statement by Tinubu/Shettima presidential campaign council on PDP’s puerile accusation of inciting violence against Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’ on Friday, December 10, 2022,' said the opposition party was only using tactics to repeat the disinformation that was used as a distraction in the 2019 general elections. He further demanded that the PDP apologize for this 

According to him: "Our attention has been drawn to one of the ever-boring and uninspiring Press Conferences of the weakened People’s Democratic Party (PDP) today accusing our Presidential candidate, ASIWAJU Bola Ahmed Tinubu of plots to incite violence and derail the 2023 polls.

"This is the height of delusion by a thoroughly deflated and confused political party which is presently gasping for political breath. 

"This is the same unnecessary scare-mongering tactics and crass vituperations they employed and engaged in before the 2019 election which led  to their crushing defeat. Instead of concentrating on the disaster presently ravaging their party and praying to God to just survive as a going entity after the 2023 elections, we are confronted by such irresponsible statements. Let us remind the PDP that ASIWAJU Bola Ahmed Tinubu is a thoroughbred democrat and one of the major architects of the democracy PDP and Nigerians enjoy today, so he should be the VERY LAST of the Presidential candidates to be accused of undemocratic conduct or underhand dealings in the electoral process. These same characters who issued the statement were behind the poor showing of the PDP in 2019. They are doing the same thing the same way again and expect a different result. With a disjointed party, divided Governors and a comatose  campaign, the PDP should realise the game is up. They are already finding excuses for their defeat. ASIWAJU Bola Ahmed Tinubu deserves an unreserved apology from the PDP. Thank you."
