Atiku’s camp kicks as Afenifere endorses Tinubu
The Presidential Spokesman, Atiku/Okowa Campaign Organisation, Dr Daniel Bwala, has picked a hole in the endorsement of All Progressive Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, by leaders of the Pan-Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere.
The PUNCH reports that Afenifere leader, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, and several South West leaders on Sunday endorsed Tinubu.
Tinubu received their endorsement during a meeting he had with the leaders of the organisation at Fasoranti’s residence in Akure, the Ondo State capital.
Some members of the group, including Pa Ayo Adebanjo, and the Secretary-General Chief Sola Ebiseni, were however absent at the meeting.
But reacting to the endorsement, Bwala in a statement said the absence of Adebanjo and others was an indication that the endorsement was faulty.
He also faulted the Afenifere leaders for inviting only Tinubu among all other presidential candidates to an event where they could have hosted frontline candidates and listened to their plans for the country.
“In what seem like the crawling of a rat at night to steal meat from the pot, Tinubu paid a strange visit to Pa Fasoranti; strange because it was not an organized setting of the usual meeting of the highly respected Afenifere; needless to say the leader of the group Pa Adebanjo and the secretary were obviously absent when he went to in a Gestapo manner.
